Amid the pandemic, many businesses, organizations, and public spaces across Canada are reopening, following the guidelines strictly to prevent the potential spread. However, with the number of new cases surging again, how can business owners effectively mitigate COVID19 risks to protect their customers, clients, and frontline employee while keeping the business open?


In addition to wearing masks and following social distancing rules, maintaining a safe and clean environment is extremely essential.


In this blog, we will be introducing disinfectant fogging, one of the most effective and efficient ways to disinfect.

What is disinfectant fogging?

Disinfectant fogging is a disinfection method involving saturating an entire room with a microbial substance that can eliminate pathogens from the air, as well as from the surfaces within the room. Compared to traditional wiping and spraying, disinfectant fogging creates a wide-reaching mist that covers high traffic and hard-to-reach areas. Disinfectant fogging is proven to be highly effective at combating pathogens, including the novel coronavirus and other common household germs.

How does the disinfectant fogger work?

The disinfectant fogger produces a mist that suspends in the air in a certain amount of time to kill bacteria and viruses. It kills pathogens on touchpoint areas. The fog coats the surfaces evenly, even those hard to reach points and odd-shaped objects.
