Disinfecting & Sanitizing Services
Cleaning vs. Disinfecting vs Sanitizing
It is important to know the difference between these 3 terms.
Cleaning is the removal of germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces. It does not kill germs, but removes them. Lowering their numbers and reducing the risk of spreading.
Disinfecting is using chemicals to kill 99.9% of germs on surfaces. This process kills germs on a surface after cleaning, and can further lower the risk of spreading.
Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to levels that are considered safe by public health organizations.
Cleaning with a fogging machine
The fogging machine, or fogger, is a versatile piece of equipment that uses a fine spray to apply a chemical solution for pest or odor control. Additionally it is used for sanitizing, disinfecting or restricting the growth of mold. It uses pressure to create a fine spray which is then applied to the targeted area. The spray density is moderated by a manual valve to ensure optimum effect. Chemicals should be used with care, as the mist can linger in the air. Time should be allowed for the solution to settle and do its work, keeping the area clear while treatment is underway to protect from inhaling any unpleasant chemicals.
