Human Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to affect the hospitality and culinary sectors across the UK, and stringent hygienic standards must be maintained in kitchens and food preparation areas to prevent illness and stop the spread of the virus. Disinfecting fogging is being used in many industries and sectors to help prevent contamination and kill both viruses and bacteria.
But is disinfectant fogging safe for use in a kitchen?
Effective Deep Cleaning
Disinfecting fogging is perfectly safe for use in commercial kitchens in hotels, schools, work canteens, restaurants, pubs, hospitals, and care homes. The process may not be something you have encountered before, but it has safely been used for decades in hospitals and healthcare for dealing with MRSA.
Disinfecting fogging completes its task of conducting an effective deep clean by emitting a mist that spreads and settles across all surfaces. The active mist bonds to all surfaces, including walls, windows, worktops, equipment, and soft furnishings.
The effect of disinfecting fogging continues to work long after it is conducted, protecting surfaces for up to seven days. Regular kitchen cleaning of door handles, work surfaces, switches, and equipment can continue on its usual daily schedule. In the busiest kitchens, disinfecting fogging can be repeated every two or three days, if desired.
The disinfecting fogging solution is clear and odourless and can be used across storerooms, cold rooms, cellars, delivery vehicles, and coolers. The antiviral disinfectant complies with the BS EN 14476 standard and is precisely diluted by trained cleaning technicians.
Disinfecting A Kitchen
Disinfecting a kitchen using fogging should only take place when all food and ingredients are put away or sealed in containers. Like any chemical or sanitising product, it should not come into direct contact with raw or cooked food. However, ten to fifteen minutes after disinfecting fogging is completed, all surfaces and equipment become food safe, and prep, cooking, and serving operations can continue.
