Fogging Service: DIY or Use a Professional?

  • by

In recent years, Fogging has been gaining popularity as a safer alternative to chemical disinfection. With the advent of fogging devices and their increased availability, this trend is expected to continue. In response to this growing demand for more information on the topic of fogging, we have created an extensive guide that includes all you need to know about purchasing a device and how it works. The following pages will also include some helpful tips from our experts on how best to use your new device!

 

What is Fogging

Fogging is a type of disinfection that involves spreading fog or water vapor onto surfaces with the use of a FOGGING DEVICE. The fogging is then left to settle on the area that was fogged for a period of time before being wiped off the surface with the use of a cloth or other cleaning tool. This process has been used longer than any other disinfection method currently in use because it does not require the use of chemicals, which are very toxic for humans.

Fogging devices are also known as FOGGERS. The type of fogger used for disinfecting surfaces is the same device that one would use to protect oneself against insects outdoors, which is not a topic covered in this buyer’s guide (however, this document will mention protection from insects and other pests).

Why Use Fogging

There are only three things that need to be considered when choosing a fogger: how much area can it cover, how quickly does it operate, and what kind of maintenance does it require.

The first factor that needs to be considered is how much area the fogger can cover. Different sized rooms and buildings will require different levels of power, which are listed in cubic feet per minute (CFM).  For example, a family room may only need between 3000-4000 CFM while a whole house may need up to 5000 CFM.

The second factor is how quickly the fogger operates. The rate at which it dispenses water vapor can be measured in gallons per hour (GPH) or cubic feet per minute (CFM). A faster operation will require a higher GPH/CFM rating, depending on the size of area that needs to be fogged.

The third factor is the amount of maintenance that the device requires. Machines that only require monthly checks will obviously save more time and effort than those that need constant maintenance, so choose a model accordingly.

A FOGGER is a machine which dispenses water vapor, as opposed to chemicals used for pest control. Foggers can either spray chemicals or water vapor, but many companies offer models that dispense both, which is the type of machine used for fogging surfaces with water vapor to disinfect them.
