- 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.

They may say they kill 99.9% of germs but in reality, this only amounts to approximately 3 or 4 bacteria on one surface. Fogging kills 99.9999% of bacteria, fungi and viruses, which means that there will only be approximately 1 bacteria left on the surface.

On reflection, one bacteria left behind is a whole lot better than having several still lurking around to cause harm.

Conventional cleaning may clean the common cold or influenza virus but it wouldn’t kill MRSA, which is what is known as antibiotic resistant bacteria, which is present within healthcare settings. Fogging effectively kills all of these pathogens and more that we are happy to provide a list of upon request.

Also, not all disinfectants are created equally, so may not all kill the same germs as each other and some are not recommended for certain surfaces such as steel. Many cleaning products can irritate or flare up allergies that a user may have when they have been applied whereas fogging causes fewer allergic reactions and is safe for use on every surface, including electronics and fabrics.
