Fogging gets you back to business

As UK businesses gradually prepare to reopen workplace premises, hiring a commercial cleaning company to bring professional standards of hygiene is a more important measure than ever for putting in place your Covid-19 recovery strategy.

Fogging is a comprehensive cleaning method which means you can reopen your business with the confidence to ensure staff, clients, visitors and customers, are all set to return to a healthy working environment.

This is because the fogging process all but kills 0.0001% of bacteria, fungi and viruses, leaving your commercial space as free from potential infection as possible, by providing a fast and complete room disinfection service.

Fogging is not only highly effective, but you can occupy your premises, return to work and resume business procedures only six hours after a fogging treatment has taken place, with the assurance of deep-clean disinfection, using this environmentally-friendly and proven decontamination method.

This makes fogging not only highly-effective in terms of health, but both a time and cost-effective treatment, leaving you safe to reopen your business with added reassurance for the welfare of your working environment.

What is fogging?

This simple decontamination process involves the use of a hand-held device which contains NHS approved antimicrobial disinfectants. This NHS approved solution is released as a fine mist which allows for optimum coverage across all areas, along with bringing maximum reassurance for the health of your staff as you get back to the day-to-day requirements of your business.

While regular commercial cleaning can reduce the risk of spreading low-level germs and viruses within your immediate working environment, the process of fogging can be relied upon to prevent against contamination up to the level of MRSA, by effectively destroying a wide range of pathogens, bacteria, fungi and mould.

Alongside conventional deep cleaning methods, fogging vaporisation offers the highest levels of decontamination inside your working environment in the aftermath of Covid-19.

How is fogging applied to your workplace?

During fogging, a commercial cleaner will isolate all targeted areas in order to apply the NHS approved antimicrobial disinfectant solution, using hand-held equipment which is designed to release tiny, airborne droplets. These tiny droplets result in a fine mist or ‘fog’ which immediately halts and disrupts the potential spread of any harmful contamination.

While conventional cleaning products may claim to kill 99.9% of germs, the way these products are applied to surface areas can make them less effective. The mist produced by fogging ensures excellent standards of coverage, even in the most intricate of areas, while it targets potentially harmful biological material.

The fine, dry-mist application makes fogging suitable for tackling both airborne and surface contamination control, while also safe to use around electrical equipment, which makes the process an ideal solution for efficiently tackling large-area infection control, even in hard to reach areas.

Depending on the size of your premises, fogging provides a quick, yet highly-effective, decontamination response, with no need for wiping and no surface residue. This means while downtime is kept to a minimum, the resulting hygiene standards provide the optimum solution for your business.

Why does fogging need to work alongside commercial cleaning?

Now, more than ever, maintaining hygiene standards inside your commercial premises should be an essential part of your overall return-to-work operation. As you prepare to reopen your workplace, fogging should be carried out as soon as commercial cleaning has taken place.

Commercial cleaning targets surface areas to ensure through sanitisation. These immediate areas should be cleaned daily, and now is the ideal time to tackle any pre-existing issues. Promoting a hygienic environment which is easily accessed for cleaning methods, means de-cluttering workspace including storage areas and floorspace.

Deep-cleaning to remove existing stubborn areas on carpets and floor-coverings, which may be worn from footfall, stained or damaged, cannot be achieved by domestic vacuuming alone. A commercial carpet cleaning company will use professional equipment to ensure your carpets and floor-coverings are no longer potentially harbouring harmful bacteria, dirt, dust and debris, which could increase the risk of allergies.

Meanwhile, touch-point cleaning is still essential in all parts of your office which come into frequent contact with people on a daily basis. Regularly accessed areas include desks, drawers, chairs, door handles, handrails, light and lift switches. These shared surfaces should be touch-cleaned along with individual equipment such as electronic devices and telephones, and communal facilities including water fountains and vending machines.

Deep cleaning methods should be applied to all workplace areas and surfaces which come into frequent contact, from office areas for business use, to kitchen and bathroom facilities. Once regular touch-points have been cleaned inside your building, the fogging process can be carried out throughout your commercial space.

After fogging, while you can get back to business in as little as six-hours after treatment, regular, daily shifts should continue to be carried out by a professional cleaning company.

Commercial cleaning ensures colleagues, clients and potential customers return to a fresh-smelling and inviting workspace, which can help to cultivate motivation and productivity among your staff. While the fogging process promotes and maintains an effectively healthy business.
