hypochlorous acid spray covid-19 safety measure

We have been getting many questions about fogging and how it helps keep businesses safe during COVID-19. We wanted to go into more detail about the process to better help you understand.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, fogging has allowed for a quick, inexpensive, effective way to disinfect large areas.  Since the fog lingers, it allows the mist to fully envelop the space and get to hard-to-reach areas. Fogging should be used in addition to conventional disinfection practices, not as a replacement.

Fogging is done by a machine that creates a mist of extremely small particles into an enclosed space.  After the mist is released into the air, it lands on surfaces in the room and it kills bacteria and viruses within minutes as it evaporates.  These machines use large amounts of low-pressure air to diffuse the mist out into the air through a nozzle creating a superior surface area coverage, unlike directional sprays.

Hypochlorous Acid: Hypochlorous Acid is one of the 6 major categories of disinfectants approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Hypochlorous Acid is extremely safe!  It is non-irritating to eyes and skin, ingestible, and inhalable, and does not damage furniture or clothing.  Handling Hypchlorous Acid does not require any Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as gloves, masks, or protective eyewear.  It is non-corrosive and evaporates quickly leaving no residue on surfaces.

Ultra-Low Volume Fogging with Hypochlorous Acid: Fogging with Hypochlorous Acid is the choice disinfectant for ultra-low volume fogging because of its safety profile and ease of use. Hypochlorous Acid at 200 ppm is advised for fogging to neutralize viruses and bacteria. Fogging has recently been introduced as a form of disinfecting in theaters, hospitals, gyms, schools, hotels, restaurants, and airplanes.is extremely important in the development of having a healthy oral health future.
