Fogging Machine vs Covid 19

This year, the Coronavirus pandemic has meant that deep cleaning and sanitisation is crucial; whether industrial, domestic, educational, clinical, or social. Covid-19 is virulent and far-reaching and has created the requirement for a new way of making sure every surface is deep cleaned and any trace of the virus being eliminated.


Fogging machines are often used in the pest control marketplace, but virus elimination is one of the areas in which fogging machines excel. Is it time you considered investing in one?


Where Can I Use a Fogging Machine?

Because they are effective on a wide variety of hard and soft surfaces the sanitising capabilities of a fogger are especially good in hospitals, GP surgeries and clinics and veterinary clinics. In kitchen and catering premises all hard surfaces like food preparation areas, fridges, freezers, walls, cupboards, trolleys and PVC curtains can quickly be made safe for human contact. Even soft surfaces such as curtains and cushions can be given the once over by a fogger although you should be careful to check that any delicate fabric will not be damaged by the chemicals.


Fogging machines are effective in other areas of the food industry that you may not have thought of such as within the dairy, pig, and poultry industries. Milking parlours, sow and weaner sheds and poultry hatcheries can be speedily sanitised to avoid any kind of pollution which would be costly to the agricultural industry.


Any workplace where there is the regular and persistent use of computer equipment, desks and even restrooms can all benefit from this form of sanitisation as can greenhouses in garden centres or other humid areas. Fogging machines can efficiently sanitise outdoors and indoors, making them a highly effective choice for those businesses aiming to keep the virus, and other germs of course, away from their premises.


Whether you’re a professional cleaning company looking to offer a new service to your clients, or a business aiming to lower the risk to staff, customers and visitors of contracting covid-19, a fogging machine may be just what you need to help make your business COVID secure.


How Does a VirusJet Fogging Machine Work?

The portability of VirusJet means that it can be carried easily between areas to be cleaned. The machine works by using valve-regulated pressure to expel a fine targeted mist of anti-bacterial and disinfecting chemicals to treat all surfaces, including inaccessible areas, and into the air ensuring a thorough treatment to control disease. The mist it delivers is ‘dry’ in contrast to other fogging machines which means no need to wipe down surfaces after treatment, and no downtime, and can be used around delicate technology. VirusJet is fully automatic and will turn itself on after a delayed start, and off after the area has been treated. No PPE is required and minimal staff training.


Fogging machines are proving their worth – they are very effective and efficient at sanitising when used with an antiviral disinfectant, a specialist chemical which is capable of quickly killing a wide range of pathogenic viruses.
