Fogging Machines - FAQs

What is a fogging machine and how does it work?

The fogging machine (also called a fogger or fumigator) is a versatile piece of equipment that uses a fine spray to apply a disinfectant solution - they have become an essential piece of equipment for effectively sanitising large internal spaces, common touch surfaces and hard-to reach areas following the COVID-19 outbreak.

The disinfectant applied through a fogging machine sanitises both surfaces and the air itself through micro-droplets of disinfectant that remain on surfaces for an extended period of time, providing long-lasting protection.

The fogger uses pressure to create a fine mist (or fog) which is applied to the targeted area, the spray density typically being moderated by a manual valve to ensure the optimum effect. The fine fog can reach into corners and difficult areas and may also penetrate porous surfaces.
 
What type of environments are suitable for fogging to be carried out?
 
Our fogging machines offer a simple solution for quickly sanitising environments of any size.  Because fogging is a relatively quick process, it is suitable for regular application and the treated areas and equipment can be brought back into operation promptly. It is ideal for disinfecting high-traffic locations and common touch points where bacteria and viral infections have the potential to spread.
 
The following list is not exhaustive, but does indicate the range of environments suitable for fogging treatment:

  • Schools
  • Hotels
  • Restaurants
  • Offices
  • Pubs
  • Gymnasiums
  • Public transport
  • Hospitals
  • Indoor play areas
  • Care homes
  • Factories
  • Prison Cells
  • Veterinary Practices

What is the difference between wet and dry fog?
 
Both our 5-litre and 12-litre foggers can disperse dry and wet fog. Their nozzles allow you to regulate both the spray volume and droplet size. Dry fog usually has droplets that are 10 to 15 microns in diameter. This is because the droplets are so small that they create a seemingly dry fog.
 
On the other hand, a fog that has droplets that are 20 microns or larger in diameter is considered wet fog. This fog appears to be wetter and more like a mist than a fog. 

Dry fog is more suitable for smaller spaces, whereas wet fog offers greater practicality for covering larger areas due to the increased size of the droplets.

How much coverage will I get from my fogging machine?

Using the 'wet fog' setting (20 microns or larger), a deep clean covering 20 square metres would take approximately one minute and use a liquid consumption of 350ml.

How often do I need to apply the disinfectant in order to ensure that there are no viruses or bacteria on the surface?

This depends on the type of disinfectant used. We supply BAC, DDAC and Hypochlorous Acid (HOCI) based disinfectant which has been tested extensively and proven to effectively kill a wide range of bacteria and viruses including Covid-19. Below are the rate of application guidelines for each disinfectant:

BAC 5 Antibacterial & Antiviral Surface Disinfectant: When sprayed, it remains on surfaces for up to 30 days, providing long-lasting protection (even if the surface is contaminated during this period).

SHIELDme Antiviral Surface Disinfectant & Sanitiser: As long as no contamination comes again in contact with the same surface. Studies have demonstrated that continual use of the product steadily reduce the “bounce back” rate of contamination. This leads to a reducing level of risk.

Sychem Control Surface Cleaner & Disinfectant: Testing of the solution revealed that the level of sanitisation persisted, despite potential recontamination through normal day to day use, for three to five weeks after application.

Does the fogging machine leave particles hanging in the air?

The droplets are dispersed into the air, float then slowly fall, disinfecting every surface as well as cleaning the air itself, resulting in a hygienically clean space. 

Do I need to remove all electrical equipment before fogging an office space or similar?

All electrical appliances should be turned off and disconnected before the fogging process takes place. There is no requirement to physically remove any electrical equipment from the area or space prior to fogging.

Is it safe to fog areas whilst hanging artwork is present?

It is recommended that you cover all hanging artwork prior to fogging.

After fogging has been carried out, when is it safe to re-enter the treated area?

The recommended time periods for each disinfectant are as follows:

BAC 5 Antibacterial & Antiviral Surface Disinfectant: Allow a minimum of 30 minutes before allowing personnel into treated area.

SHIELDme Antiviral Surface Disinfectant & Sanitiser: Allow a minimum of 5 minutes before allowing personnel into treated area. 

Sychem Control Surface Cleaner and Disinfectant: Allow a minimum of 30 minutes before allowing personnel into treated area. 

Remember to check there is no airborne activity before allowing personnel back into the treated area.

When fogging the area will the areas be wet for any length of time?

After you have left the fog to dissipate, there shouldn’t be any wetness remaining. If there is any excess, it should be wiped off with a clean cloth.

Are you able to provide any certifications or testing reports relating to the fogging machines?

Certification(s) and testing reports are available on request. Both our fogging machines have undergone rigorous testing to ensure they are manufactured to a high-quality level. Below are some of the standards that are foggers meet - the list is by no means exhaustive.
