What is cold fogging?
Unlike thermal fogging, cold fogging doesn’t use heat. Instead, cold fogging machines use swirling airflow and high pressure to transform liquid agents into floating particles. Cold fogging machines use a nozzle to disperse tiny particles of disinfecting solution in the room. Due to the small size of the particles, they can easily reach into the smallest of spaces and provide a more thorough disinfecting experience. Once activated, the cold fogging machine may not require an operator because it is one of the safest disinfecting technologies. You can customize the droplet size as per your needs. The smaller the droplet size, the more easily it can disinfect hard-to-reach places. Cold fogging is effective in different settings, including retail, medical, corporate, warehouse, industrial, etc., and highly recommended to eliminate harmful elements.
Where cold fogging should be applied?
If everyone washes their hands after sneezing or coughing on it and wear a mask, then we may not even need to disinfect entire office buildings, but sadly that’s not the case. People cough or sneeze into their hands, then touch different things without washing their hands. As a result, the surfaces they touch get contaminated with the virus and if someone else touches those surfaces and then touch their eyes, nose, or mouth, they may also contract the virus. There are certain high-risk areas in all workplaces, including retail outlets, corporate offices, healthcare facilities, warehouses, etc. These areas must be frequently disinfected using cold fog disinfecting services NJ in order to reduce the spread of the virus. These high-risk areas and surfaces include;
- Supermarket baskets and trollies
- Rubbish bins
- Door handles
- Mouse and keyboard
- Dining and kitchen surfaces
- Kettles and taps
- Recycling areas
- Handrails, grab rails, stair rails, and grab handles
- Toilet flush buttons and handles
- Petrol pumps
Advantages of cold fogging technology
These are the advantages of using cold fog disinfecting services NJ for disinfecting workplaces.
Cold fogging doesn’t leave spraying stains or cause dripping losses because of the droplet size. The particles are small, so they remain in the environment for extended periods. Furthermore, small droplet size makes the fogging more effective since the fog can easily penetrate, distribute, and stick on contaminated surfaces.
Cold fogging machines may not require supervision, as mentioned earlier. These machines are fully automatic, so an operator is not required to operate them at all times. The only time labor may be necessary is if the machine requires a refill or if you have to change the droplet size. As a result, the cost of cold fogging may be lower than other fogging methods but just as effective (or even more so).
Thermal foggers or motor-driven sprayers can create a lot of noise, but that is not the case with cold foggers. Cold fogging machines are comparatively quieter and don’t create a lot of noise. As mentioned earlier, these machines may be able to operate without supervision, which adds convenience to the process. If you are using cold fogging in a greenhouse setting, then you can add a small amount of stabilizers like polyethyleneglycol, emulsifiable crop oil, etc., to increase convenience.
Importance of cold fog disinfecting services NJ in all workplaces during COVID-19
When the pandemic started, authorities around the world called for strict lockdowns and asked people to only go out in case of an emergency. Offices and other workplaces were also shut down and people started working from home. Now, lockdowns are finally lifting, but people are still reluctant to go to offices, visit retail stores, dine out, and even visit hospitals because all these places may contribute to the spread of the virus. Frequent cold fogging may effectively disinfect surfaces that may be contaminated and may reduce the coronavirus’s risk of fomite transmission. This will allow you to protect the health and gain the confidence of the employees, clients, and visitors that have to visit your facility.
If a person does not have the proper knowledge and training required for cold fogging, they may cause more harm than good. For instance, cold fogging using harmful elements may be dangerous for you and your visitor’s health.
