Our Range Of Disinfection Services

Fogging Disinfection

Our fogging disinfection service gives noteworthy effectiveness and coverage to areas such as ceilings, cupboards and difficult to reach nooks and crannies. This is an additional treatment to regular cleaning to ensure day-to-day maintenance of cross-contamination. Fogging cleaning uses extremely little beads of disinfectant. These droplets settle under, on top and on the sides of many objects and inaccessible areas that couldn’t be reached with conventional cleaning methods. Fogging has been found to be effective against a wide range of microscopic organisms such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi and spores depending on the disinfectant used.
