IWESCO offers numerous cleaning and sanitation solutions. One of these services is fogging - also known as whole room disinfection. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have created a comprehensive response plan to ensure the safety of our customers, their operations and employees. Fogging is an effective method of sanitising an office, shop, industrial facility, warehouse or any private space.

We are a certified essential service by the Department of Trade and Industry and, as such, we will continue our cleaning, sanitation, disinfection and hygiene services during the national lockdown. Our fogging services are particularly important for testing and treatment centres, food manufacturers and similar industrial processes where microorganisms and viruses can come into contact with humans and consumable goods.

Fogging ensures the complete disinfection of an entire room, including hard-to-reach spaces. During any manufacturing process, the goods can be exposed to microbial contamination from the factory surfaces and the air. This can lead to product spoilage and consumer health issues. Normal disinfection processes can clean surfaces adequately, but many microorganisms can survive on difficult-to-reach surfaces and uncleaned machinery.

Fogging ensures complete disinfection

Fogging is a process of sealing off a room or factory floor and spraying a fine mist of chemical disinfectants into the air. The minute particles of the cleaning agent fog up the space and cover all the equipment contained within, including the undersides of machinery and all surfaces of the room.

Fogging is a highly effective way to disinfect a space and minimise the number of germs and bacteria. The chemicals used are not harmful to human health and do not affect the goods being produced at the facility. This method of sanitation can save money for businesses as it reduces the risk of wastage and of potential lawsuits through consumer illnesses.

IWESCO minimises safety risks

Whole room disinfection requires a number of steps to be taken before the process begins. IWESCO is a certified ISO 140001 company and we use HACCP protocols for minimising safety hazards on-site. This means that we identify all areas of possible risks and work to ensure the complete disinfection of a space in the safest way possible.

We use thermal fogging machines to prevent the spread of the virus and microbial infections in your workspace. All non-essential service providers should use the national lockdown to clean and disinfect their business environments. This will make offices, retail stores, warehouses and factories cleaner and safer once the lockdown is lifted. This will have a positive effect on staff morale as you are actively playing your part.

Our fogging service is an innovative way to keep spaces clean, hygienic and sanitised. Now is the ideal time to disinfect commercial spaces, so contact us for a quote or to set up a virtual meeting. Fogging will protect your employees and customers, as well as minimise the spread of Covid-19 during the pandemic.
