- Disinfecting with a fogger kills 99.99% of viruses, bacteria, mold, and mildew.
- Small particles reach areas that may not be cleaned with traditional techniques
- Environmentally friendly
- Highly cost effect
- Little to no waste implications

- Requires little effort from user
What is fogging?
Fogging is an efficient way to disinfect both indoor and outdoor objects, surfaces, and areas to eliminate the growth of harmful bacteria, mold, and viruses.
Foggers create a small particle, between 0-50 microns, whereas traditional sprayers have a particle size of around 250 microns. When you fog, you are creating an environmental fog that is forming a canopy that moves through the air and slowly descends to below surfaces. Because the particles are so small, many of them are picked up by the airflow in a room, allowing the particles to travel further, ultimately carrying the disinfect solution to hard to reach areas. Particles not only disinfect the surface it touches or lands on but also disinfects the air within the spray area.

Safety when fogging is dependant on the solution that is added to disinfect with. Fusion UV-Clean has tested both water-based ammonium chloride and water-based sodium chloride and both have been proven safe to spray without the use of any personal protective equipment.
The fogging machines are safe to use in both indoor and outdoor environments. No PPE is required when using but some operators may request ear protection because many of the machines are loud when turned on.
Fogging should be used in conjunction with touch-point cleaning. Doing this will ensure that parts of your workspace which are commonly touched or used are both cleaned and disinfected.
