I know what you’re thinking: why should I use this ‘fogging’ when I can just wipe the surfaces over with a bit of spray and a cloth?
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.
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.
On the other hand, fogging kills the germs where they lie and also prevents them being transferred from one place to another (known as cross contamination) due to its automated process.
With fogging, there are no places for the germs to shelter.
