COVID-19: Disinfect Your Commercial Premises with Ultra Low Volume (ULV) Fogging in Perth

If you're continuing to run your business through the coronavirus pandemic, or welcoming back employees and customers after lockdown, you need to be confident that your premises are safe.

While regular cleaning and encouraging personal hygiene help to lower the risk of COVID-19 transmission, these aren't always enough to remove all infectious pathogens from the environment.

To make sure your site is as safe as possible, talk to disinfection experts about tried and tested solutions. One effective option is ultra low volume (ULV) disinfection fogging, proven to significantly reduce pathogens both on surfaces and airborne.

Are your premises safe from coronavirus?

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it painfully clear how efficiently germs can spread, even with social distancing. If an infected person fails to follow proper hand hygiene, any surface they touch could remain contaminated for 24 hours or more (depending on its material and other factors), and infectious droplets can also spread through the air. In a high traffic area, it's possible for a whole office to be infected in just a few hours.

If you insist on good hand hygiene in your workplace and you've established a regular cleaning routine for all main surfaces, this will make transmission less likely – but manual cleaning and disinfecting can't remove all pathogens or reach all areas. With coronavirus likely to remain a threat for some time, a higher standard of cleaning is necessary to make sure all surfaces are disinfected and all airborne pathogens eradicated.

Talking to a commercial disinfecting company near you will give you the information you need to decide whether you could benefit from ULV fogging. This disinfecting solution removes droplets from a wider variety of surfaces and areas that can't otherwise be reached to help keep your office virus-free.

How does fogging work?

Ultra-low volume (ULV) disinfection uses an electrostatic apparatus that produces a mist of liquid disinfectant – typically chlorine dioxide, which is effective against coronavirus. This diffuses through the air and rests on surfaces, eliminating any harmful pathogens on contact. As it diffuses quickly, fogging is especially convenient for disinfecting larger areas in a short space of time.

If you decide you want to benefit from ULV fogging, disinfection specialists will visit your site to carry out a risk assessment and identify the locations where fogging could be most useful. Personal protective equipment (PPE) will be worn to protect the workers from the disinfecting chemicals used and from possible contaminants.

While fogging may not catch every single trace of contaminants, it can significantly reduce the number of pathogens present compared to standard cleaning. For the most comprehensive clean, fogging should be combined with manual disinfecting procedures, especially for high-touch surfaces and objects such as door handles, lift buttons, rails and benches.
