frequently asked QUESTIONS
CLEAN & SANITIZE
The answer is no. TORONTO FOGGING service actually helps to reduce odors. Our customers can choose an EPA and Health Canada approved odorless disinfectant or an EPA and Health Canada approved botanical disinfectant. The botanicals have a mild, pleasant fragrance derived from an essential oil.
Is there a chemical smell after TORONTO FOGGING service?
Microorganisms such as viruses, mould and bacteria. Dust mites including dust mite feces and fragments of dead dust mites, human skin cells and lint. Aerosolized microdust particles.
What types of particulate matter does fogging help to mitigate?
Can fogging be done when others are in the room?
TORONTO FOGGING service is best done when others are not present. The fogging is for the micro-organisms and dust. The cleaning and sanitizing results are for people to enjoy after the fogging.
How can TORONTO FOGGING help post-construction cleaning?
Professional trades worked diligently to complete the project on time. They created many types of particulate matter, including respiratory droplets containing microorganisms, and touched all of the new materials. Standard cleaning and waste removal are part of every renovation project. The final cleanup can include glass cleaning, vacuuming, hard surface cleaning, and washroom cleaning. As a final step, whole room service by TORONTO FOGGING with an odorless, residue free EPA and Health Canada approved disinfectant can finish the job so that everyone can say with confidence and enthusiasm: "The whole job site is clean and sanitized."
What can we do after a flood or a leak?
Cordon off the area until it is clean, sanitized and dry. To avoid the growth of mould, it is important to dry wet carpet and drywall as soon as possible (preferably within 48 hours). Ventilate, dehumidify, use wet dry vacuums, carpet extraction machines, carpet drying blowers, as well as manual cleaning, disinfecting and drying. Please contact us to request TORONTO FOGGING service for the whole area before re-opening.
Is fogging new?
Industrial electrostatic paint spraying (like fogging with charged particles of paint) dates back to 1958. Whole room fogging is now widespread in: food processing facilities; machine sanitizing; the soft drink industry for yeast control; dry fogging for pharmaceutical manufacturing environments and clean rooms; odour remediation; dust suppression by encapsulation of micro-particles; and much more.
Ceiling Doctor Division of Rhonco Enterprises cleaning and sanitizing service has used proprietary selective surface fogging for suspended acoustic ceilings, walls and other surfaces in commercial offices, industrial, facilities and restaurants since 1985.
How does one define indoor fogging?
Fogging: Applying an EPA and Health Canada approved disinfectant solution to the atmosphere and hard surfaces in a defined indoor space, as a fog or mist (aerosolized droplets) to mitigate populations of micro-organisms, and to remediate aerosolized micro-dust particles as well as odours.
The fog droplets can be widely dispersed (whole room) or narrowly dispersed (selected surfaces only). The fog can also range from "dry" (micro-droplets) to "wet" (a range of larger droplet sizes). The aerosolized droplets within the fog can be positively or negatively charged and thereby attracted or repelled according to the electrostatic potentials of the particulate matter and hard surfaces within range.
The dispersion of fog droplets and contact with aerosolized particles and hard surfaces in an indoor environment is influenced by variables such as: temperature, humidity, droplet size and velocity, total droplet volume, rate of evaporation, ventilation (fresh air supply) and flow, electrostatic effects, contact time needed for the active disinfecting ingredients to do their job, and more.
