School has always been called our children's second home. Just as we do whatever we can to nurture our children at home, schools are responsible for promoting their moral and educational values. Unfortunately, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, students are deprived of schooling and many kids have had to miss many days of school.
In many areas, a new school year has commenced in compliance with local health protocols. This year should differ from previous years in various factors. A significant factor is the way schools are disinfected. Today, experts recommend that fogging machines are very practical, easy, and safe to use for disinfecting schools.
So, how well do you know fogging equipment? Fogging devices contain antiseptic active ingredients that can kill germs by spraying on different surfaces.
What is Fogging Equipment?
Fogging machines are state-of-the-art devices designed to disinfect and sanitize different surfaces and the atmosphere. There are a variety of different types of foggers, and you can find the right one for your needs, depending on the type of use.
The general structure of fogging equipment is the use of disinfectant solutions in their containers and spraying on various surfaces. Wet-type and dry-type are two common forms of such equipment. The wet type machine sprays disinfectant solution in the form of a fine mist measured in microns. It is generally suitable for disinfecting large areas such as schools, hospitals and hallways. On the other hand, the thermal fogger, such as Nano Atomizer handheld sanitizer, produces a dry-fog, making it excellent for areas that are sensitive to moisture such as phones, laptop, clothes, tableware, and cookware.
How Can Children's Playgrounds and Play Equipment be Disinfected?
Schools are one of the most vulnerable places nowadays as people are worried about their children staying safe. The playground is one of the places students like to spend their time, but there is concern over the contamination of students' shared play equipment. For this reason, every day before the students come to school, the school janitor must sanitize the equipment and play area with disinfectant. In addition to regular detergents, the use of fogger equipment is very safe and practical to disinfect the playground. The cordless Portable Fogger is a great solution for efficient fogging.
But Why Use a Fogger?
Firstly, in a very short time, a very large area can be effectively disinfected by a completely non-toxic and hypoallergenic solution that is safe for kids, pets, and plants. For example, with the ULV Foggers, you can disinfect a 15-meter area with a single spray. The disinfectant solution can easily kill all viruses and bacteria on the surface as well as in the air.
When we talk to school janitors about disinfecting play equipment, they tend to use regular detergent for this task, which isn't necessarily as effective and usually involves excessive scrubbing, wiping, and is overly time-consuming. Fogging saves time, and in turn, saves money while remaining extremely effective and safe.
Disinfecting of Classrooms and School Hallways
It is very important to sanitize and disinfect classrooms and school hallways on a frequent and daily basis since indoor spaces are the perfect place for the transmission of pathogens from person to person. These areas should be disinfected after school hours and ready for the next morning, and sometimes may require sanitizing during the day as well. The Portable Fogger and Heavy Duty Fogger may be the best options for this task. Using a Portable Fogger is an efficient approach to clean the indoor air. Its electrostatic process uses an internal negative ion generator to trap and kill dispersed viruses and bacteria - removing them from the air and killing them on the surface. The Heavy Duty Fogger has a powerful blower capability, which is not only great for dispersing disinfect, but also for drying the surface if over-wetting occurs. So, it can be the best choice for disinfecting school halls quickly and safely.
Sanitizing Student Desks and Shared Facilities
Finally, we get to the most important part of this topic, and that is to disinfect students' desks and common areas. A combination of detergent and water is generally used for this reason. But unpleasant odors and excessive cleaning and drying time can be cumbersome and non-efficient. And this is where the fogging equipment comes into play. Disinfectant such as Nano hand held sanitizer produces a dry fog that makes it ideal for disinfecting small surfaces such as student desks and small items. The Nano Atomizer is also used to disinfect humidity-sensitive surfaces such as keyboards and mouse, elevator buttons, and wooden appliances. It can be used to disinfect a distance of 1.5-4 meters in the shortest possible time. The Portable Fogger can also be useful for this task because it quickly disinfects sensitive areas in a matter of minutes without the cord.
It's important that we are able to allow kids the opportunity to remain in school during this pandemic, and the only way to do that is to disinfect effectively to maintain a safe learning environment.
