COVID-19 continues to impact the health of the nation as one wave is followed by another. Mutations in the virus are complicating the story, with variants such as the Delta-variant increasing transmissibility. While 60% of adults in the UK have received two vaccination jabs, this still leaves millions vulnerable, which places great importance on services such as disinfecting fogging.
Frequent high-level deep cleaning is essential for businesses, organisations, and public spaces where people’s health is dependent on effective Coronavirus decontamination. Wherever there is a high density of people, such as in offices or transport hubs, whole room and space cleaning is vital, and disinfecting fogging accomplishes this goal.
However, any business or organisation is aware of how expensive the equipment they own is. So, it is only natural that companies and business owners are concerned about whether disinfecting fogging will damage their equipment. Damaged equipment might be costly to replace, and there could be a massive impact on productivity or maintaining a service if crucial equipment ceases to operate.
Here we answer the question of will disinfecting fogging damage my equipment.
Impact On Electrical Equipment
Disinfection fogging is regularly used in the food industry, pharmaceutical settings, and health sector, including hospitals. We know from the long history of using this decontamination method that fogging is safe for use in areas with electrical equipment such as computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, printers, keyboards, and mice if specific precautionary measures are taken.
Preventive measures can be implemented to protect electrical systems and electrical components. For instance, turning off electrical equipment and allowing it to cool or covering electrical equipment that cannot be turned off provides an extra-safe environment ahead of disinfecting fogging. Sufficient time (roughly fifteen minutes) should then be left before re-energising electrical equipment to allow the mist to settle and dry.
More Effective At Killing Bacteria & Coronavirus
COVID-19 has a fast reproduction rate, so it is vital to use the most effective methods, strategies, and technologies for killing bacteria and viruses. Disinfecting fogging fits the bill nicely, with the mist killing traces of the virus in the air and on surfaces, which can be contaminated when someone with the virus coughs, sneezes, or talks.
It is possible to sterilise a whole space or room wholly and quickly. Fogging removes the human element from the thoroughness of disinfecting, so you have the confidence of knowing that no button, door handle, switch, or surface has been missed.
There are many health challenges ahead. These include delivering booster jabs and the expert’s predictions that flu could be a more significant problem this winter as natural immunity drops due to limited social exposure. It is prudent to introduce disinfectant fogging into your regular cleaning schedule now.
