Want to maintain good home hygiene? Don’t leave out the disinfectant fogger machine.

In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, fogger machines have become increasingly essential for disinfecting large interior spaces, contact surfaces, and hard-to-reach areas. Compared to traditional cleaning, a fogger machine is more cost-effective and provides lasting protection without moving furniture.

Disinfectant fogging involves filling the entire room with a microbial substance that purifies and removes pathogens from the air, surfaces, and hard-to-reach areas. It is proficient in fighting pathogens, especially airborne or carried by respiratory droplets, such as the influenza virus or COVID-19 coronavirus.

Here come our top picks.


BEST FOGGER MACHINE COLLECTION FOR YOU

What is a fogger machine?
A fogger machine (also known as a disinfectant fogger machine or sanitizing fogger machine) is a multi-purpose device that uses a fine spray to apply a disinfectant solution.

The disinfectant applied through the fogger provides lasting protection by disinfecting the surface and the air itself with micro-droplets of disinfectant that remain on the surface for an extended period.

Foggers use pressure to produce a fine mist (or fog) applied to the target area, and a manual valve usually adjusts the spray density to ensure optimal results. The fine mist can get into corners and difficult areas, or it can penetrate porous surfaces.

  • Types:
Thermal foggers

Gas thermal foggers

Electric thermal foggers

ULV (ultra-low volume) foggers

Ground fogger machine

Mold fogger machine

How to choose a suitable fogger machine for yourself?
Here are some factors you should consider to buy the best fogger machine:

Most cold mist or ULV (Ultra Low Volume) fogger machines can disperse both wet and dry fog. Dry fog typically has droplets that are 10 to 15 microns in diameter. This is because the droplets are so tiny that they produce a mist that looks like dry fog. You can adjust the droplet size and spray volume.

On the other hand, a fog with droplets 20 microns in diameter or larger is considered a wet fog. This fog appears to be wetter and more like mist than fog. Dry fog is better suited for smaller spaces, while wet fog has greater utility in covering larger areas due to increased droplet size.

How to use a fogger machine correctly?
Step by Step Instruction:

1. Make sure you first have appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) such as waterproof or chemically resistant gloves, adequate respirators or adequate face shields, goggles, long pants, sleeves, and good shoes or boots.

2. Test areas or surfaces for problems such as damage or bleaching.

3. Open all cabinets, drawers, desks, etc.

4. Start at the farthest corner of the room, approximately 6-10 feet from the back wall/corner and ceiling.

5. Plug the machine with an extension cord into the front of the room where the door is located.

6. Point the fogger at the top farthest corner of the ceiling and turn it on.

7. Quickly adjust the fog to a fine mist so as not to disperse too much liquid.

8. Leave a fine mist on the surfaces, including the ceiling, walls, furniture, and floor, working up and down from left to right as you slowly make your way out of the house.

9. Unplug your machine and close the door.

10. Allow the disinfectant to stay on the surface and dry on its own. The drying time depends on the product used, the amount of spray, and the humidity.

As I mentioned above, I have found that 3% food-grade hydrogen peroxide is best because it is safer, does not bleach or damage the surface when applied correctly, and dries very quickly - sometimes in 10-20 minutes.

How do disinfectant foggers work?
All foggers work by filling the room with a solution that has disinfectant properties. There are a variety of disinfectant foggers on the market that offer different types of fogging treatments. Choosing the correct treatment for your facility depends on its use, potential pathogen exposure, and the surfaces to be disinfected. The most common treatments are:

  • Chemical fogging
  • Vaporized hydrogen peroxide
  • Ozone
  • Chlorine dioxide
  • Ionization
What do you put in a fogger machine?
We recommend that you use sanitizer and anti-viral disinfectants, which have been tested against harmful bacteria and viruses. You can put disinfectants based on BAC, DDAC, and hypochlorous acid (HOCI). These disinfectants have been tested and proven to be effective in killing various bacteria and viruses, including Covid-19.

How often do I need to apply the disinfectant?
It depends on the type of disinfectant used. We offer BAC, DDAC, and hypochlorite (HOCI) based disinfectants that have been extensively tested and proven effective in killing a wide range of bacteria and viruses, including Covid-19. The following are helpful guidelines for each disinfectant.

  • BAC 5 Antibacterial and Antiviral Surface Disinfectant:
After spraying, it can remain on the surface up to 30 days, providing long-lasting protection (even if the surface is contaminated in the meantime).

  • SHIELDme antiviral surface disinfectant and sanitizer:
as long as no contamination comes into contact with the same surface again. Studies have shown that continued use of this product steadily reduces the rate of contamination "rebound." This results in a reduced level of risk.

  • Sychem Control Surface Cleaner and Disinfectant:
Testing of the solution has shown that the disinfection level of the solution remains for three to five weeks after use, despite the possibility of recontamination during regular daily use.
