Cold fogging for coronavirus may play a part in stopping its spread. The technicians use FDA-registered disinfectants that disperse into the room with a ULV fogger. With this method, the disinfectant can make contact with airborne pathogens as well as land on surfaces that may be hard to reach. Coronavirus may spread through droplets in the air and from contaminated surfaces. What makes cold fogging potentially effective?
Cold fogging may be effective toward coronavirus. It is important to follow all preparations. Tenants and pets should be out of the room. The technicians should also be wearing professional protective equipment (PPE), including respirators and eye protection. They will also be trained in how to use the fogging equipment and apply the disinfectants appropriately.
All windows and doors that lead to the outside will be closed during cold fogging for the coronavirus. This allows the fog to permeate the entire area so that it does not escape through an exterior opening. Cabinets, drawers, closets, and such will also all need to be open. When the drawers are opened, they should look like steps. Drawers should not be stacked on top of each other because that blocks the fog from getting into each drawer. The fog needs to be able to get inside all of these spots.
Cold fogging can reach all the nooks and crannies. So, the technician may start by fogging the open cabinets and drawers then moving from the farthest corner of the room and on out. Effective cold fogging for coronavirus means that every area in the room needs to be reached.
Cold fogging may be a good method to use against the coronavirus. It can reach places that are hard to reach with the usual surface decontamination methods. Another benefit is that it may disinfect the air. The cold fogging checmicals are EPA-registered to be effective against other hard-to-kill viruses. While we do not know how effective they are against the coronavirus, the CDC says these disinfectants could be effective based on current data for use on other viruses. Coldl fogging in combination with surface disinfecting may help to prevent the virus’ spread, though no definite claims can be made.
We want to do all that we can to slow down the coronavirus from infecting more people. Following the CDC’s guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting is one of the ways to do so. Washing your hands and cleaning all high-touch surfaces may make a difference in this pandemic.
