There have been mixed messages surround COVID-19 and whether particles can stay on surfaces and in the air. Most recently, scientists have said that pathogens can remain airborne, which is why the virus can spread so fast and easily. Even WHO (World Health Organization) has stated that airborne coronavirus transmission “cannot be ruled out”. This is the reason why masks have become mandatory in all indoor places to help prevent the spread.
Making sure that the air inside an enclosed area is always circulating is very important so that particles can’t just hang in one area, waiting for someone to walk through them. But, there are always going to be places and times where the air cannot properly circulate. This is why airborne disinfection is just as important as disinfecting surfaces.
People get caught up in disinfecting and sanitizing all surfaces, not wanting to touch someone else’s germs, when in fact, you could be breathing in their germs.
Disinfectant wipes and other cleaning products have been flying off the shelves throughout the pandemic, but are those products really keeping you and others safe from airborne pathogens?
How Do You Disinfect the Air?
The most reliable solution for air disinfection, while also disinfecting the entire environment, is using a disinfectant fogger. Foggers spray out disinfectant at high power, both causing the air to circulate while disinfecting it. Foggers work very effectively and efficiently in both disinfecting surfaces and particulate matter in the air at the same time, and it is much quicker than trying to spray everywhere and then wiping up after.
Disinfectant fogging doesn’t require any wiping or rinsing because the disinfectant is dispersed so evenly in tiny micron droplets that it will dry itself or you can use a dry fogger if you are worried about anything that cannot get wet. Most foggers have adjustable outputs, making them great for any environment and space for quick, efficient and effective disinfecting.
So next time you are deciding how to disinfect your space, consider choosing to fog to reduce time and increase effectiveness, which includes airborne disinfection, to protect everyone around you.
