Ultra Low Volume (ULV) Fogging
The process of fogging simply refers to the use of specialist machines to disperse a fine mist or fog which is particularly effective in reaching areas such as small crevices, corners and surfaces with irregular shapes that are difficult to access through traditional cleaning techniques. The fog covers a wide range of surfaces including walls, ceilings and furnishings providing a more uniform distribution of the disinfectant.
There are two types of fogging and the key difference lies in their specific focuses.
Sanitisation Fogging is a more general term, encompassing a broader spectrum of microbial reduction, including bacteria and fungi.
Antiviral Fogging is specifically tailored to combat viruses, emphasisng a targeted approach to viral pathogen elimination.
Crucially, both methods are relatively fast in their application making them equally suitable for time-sensitive situations, such as in between business hours or during the turnover of spaces. Additionally, both methods minimise wetness during the application process meaning furnishings can remain in place and the treated spaces can be re-entered more quickly thereby reducing your employees' downtime.
