Decontamination (Fogging) & Infection Control Cleaning
Bath, Bristol, Weston-super-Mare and the surrounding area
At The Fine Cleaning Company, we specialise in providing a superior level of clean with our fogging service. This advanced cleaning method ensures that your home or workplace has been cleaned and disinfected to a professional standard, and is free from bacteria, viruses and fungi – giving you complete peace of mind.
Why book a fogging service?
With the current COVID-19 outbreak, never has it been a better time to make sure that your business, place of education or home is safe from all types of bacteria, fungi and viruses; not just now, but as an ongoing part of your regular cleaning routine.
Whilst wiping the surfaces over with a cloth is the option most of the population would turn to, the traditional cleaning method is only effective at getting rid of 11% of harmful bacteria and viruses. Wiping down surfaces can actually spread germs, especially when only one cloth is used to clean all surfaces!
Disinfectant fogging achieves a more sophisticated and thorough clean. Fogging uses a technology to break down the disinfectant into a tiny mist, which enables it to contact every nook and cranny in each room, as well as reaching any airborne bacteria or viruses. The disinfectant kills and bacteria, virus or fungus, it makes contact with within 60 seconds! This, combined with our current cleaning procedures, ensures a safer and cleaner area for our children, staff and families.
What is fogging?
Fogging is a process through which we can make sure that rooms are free from bacteria, fungi and viruses.
We use fogging in a variety of sectors, from healthcare to education, all with the desire to achieve the same outcome – a space safe from germs!
Why is fogging better than conventional cleaning?
Whilst conventional cleaning may get rid of the germs that lie upon the surfaces we can see, it will not target areas which could be missed or hard to reach by cleaners, such as underneath tables and within the spaces between cupboards. This leads to hotspots, where there is a large volume of bacteria.
Fogging kills the germs where they lie, and also prevents them being transferred from one place to another (known as cross-contamination), due to the automated and thorough process.
What does fogging kill that conventional cleaning doesn’t?
Many conventional cleaning products claim that they can kill 99.9% of germs. The truth is that, sadly, they do not kill as many germs as they lay claim to.
In reality, this only amounts to approximately 3 or 4 bacteria on one surface. Fogging kills 99.9999% of bacteria, fungi and viruses.
Conventional cleaning may kill the common cold or influenza virus, but it wouldn’t kill MRSA, which is what is known as antibiotic resistant bacteria, often present within healthcare settings. Fogging effectively kills all of these pathogens and more; we are happy to provide a full list upon request.Click here for full details »
The biocide particles in the mist or fog are so small that they remain suspended in the air long enough to kill airborne viruses and bacteria. The biocide also eliminates pathogens on surfaces, including ceilings and walls as well as furniture and floors.
An advantage with fogging is that the sanitising agent reaches areas that may be difficult to clean with other techniques.
In most cases it’s not necessary to move furniture or equipment around before or during the fogging process.
Whereas previously, the chemicals used in fogging could adversely affect materials such as plastic, fabrics and metal – causing corrosion over time – this is no longer a concern.
The fogging process can take just a few minutes depending on the size of the area, although the treated area must be sealed-off for at least an hour or more after treatment to allow the mist to fully disperse.
Cleaning can be broken down as:
- General cleaning – removes germs and dirt from surfaces. Using detergent and water to clean surfaces doesn’t kill germs, but removing them lowers their numbers. Surfaces should always be cleaned before you disinfect them.
- Disinfecting – kills germs on surfaces. After first cleaning a surface, you then disinfect it. Killing germs lowers the risk of infection. To properly disinfect, the disinfecting solution need to remain on a surface for a specific amount of time (dependent on manufacturers’ instructions).
- Sanitising – also kills germs, but not as many as disinfecting. Some products are capable of doing both, but disinfecting requires a bit more work.
Our trained Fine Cleaning Company team can carry out decontamination and infection control cleaning and sanitising using fogging to destroy all traces of the virus.
Areas are deep cleaned by our team wearing the appropriate PPE. After cleaning with sterilising chemicals, the areas are sealed and taped-off, ready for testing.
