This month we are featuring one of our most popular products – Sterizar 5 Litre Fogging Solution
This fogging solution is available in both an unscented formula and lemon scented formula. The lemon scented solution leaves a pleasant fresh scent and some people prefer to use this so that people can smell the fresh aroma of having just cleaned an area. However, the lemon scented fogging solution is not food safe and so in areas such as kitchens or dining areas, the unscented form should be used as the unscented fogging solution is food safe.
Fogging is a tried and tested method of infection control and prevention. Using Sterizar fogging solution along with a fogging machine is confirmed to be effective against Norovirus, E. Coli, MRSA, Salmonella, Legionella and more. Not only this but Sterizar is effective against Coronavirus (Covid-19) and has become a more popular method of infection control for this particular virus since the pandemic began in 2020.
Although many other fogging products can claim to kill bacteria, it is important that you know exactly what the product you are using is effective against so you can assure the safety of your premises against dangerous bacteria and viruses.Sterizar Fogging Solution (along with all of our Sterizar products) is tested to be effective against a wide range of bacteria and viruses. You can view the test data here. If you would like us to send you the coronavirus certification for this product, please get in touch.
Your questions answered:
Can I do it myself?
Absolutely! The fogging machine we can supply you with is easy to use and you can do it yourself. However, if you would prefer for someone else to do it, send us an email with your request and we will get back to you after sourcing a bespoke quote for your particular premises.
Do I need to wear any personal protective equipment (PPE)?
We recommend that you wear a face mask when carrying out the fogging process. The product is skin safe and so you should not need any other PPE.
How long should I leave the treated area empty after fogging?
Although this product is very safe, it is important to always take precautions when using any cleaning product. After fogging the room, leave it undisturbed and sealed for one hour, limiting access to anyone during this time. You should then ventilate the area when allowing people back into the room. We recommend this so that the solution has time to take effect and all the particles are able to kill any airborne contamination before settling on surfaces and killing any surface contamination there.
How much fogging solution do I need?
Our fogging solution comes in handy 5 litre containers which you do not need to dilute. As a rough guide, approximately 2 litres should be enough to fog an area the size of a standard three bedroom house if it is fogged correctly. This approximation will depend on ceiling heights, sizes of rooms and how well sealed the room is. When it comes to our fogging solution, you are getting a lot for your money! Especially now that our unscented fogging solution is currently reduced to £25.95 for 5 litres (down from £29.95).
How long does it take to work?
Our fogging solution gets to work immediately and once the treatment is complete the space is free of any pathogens. We recommend leaving the area undisturbed for one hour after fogging so the particles have time to settle onto surfaces as they do remain in the air for a little while, killing any airborne bacteria or viral contamination before settling on surfaces.
Do I need to remove furniture and equipment from the space before fogging it?
There is no need to move furniture or equipment before fogging the space. The fogging solution is non-corrosive and will not cause damage to furniture or other items in the area.
Sterizar fogging solution, as well as our whole Sterizar range, has many benefits, including its suitability for use in such a variety of environments. It is nonflammable, nonirritant, food safe in its unscented form, safe for use in environments where children and animals will be present and is halal certified so is suitable for all religious groups.
