Why businesses need to use fogging for complete sanitisation

Over 15 months have passed since the Covid-19 pandemic reached South Africa. The country has surpassed 2-million cases and this latest spike in infections has shown that despite a good vaccine rollout, sanitisation and hygiene still play an important role in reducing transmission of the virus. This is why it is absolutely vital that all businesses undergo complete sanitisation on a regular basis.

IWESCO is a certified essential service that can offer deep cleaning, disinfection and fogging services throughout South Africa. These can be undertaken on a routine basis or as a once-off service to any business that needs to keep its employees and customers protected from the virus. Our services will ensure that your entire premises are disinfected and sanitised thoroughly.

What is fogging?

Fogging is sometimes referred to as whole room disinfection. Essentially, it is a process whereby we use special machines to emit a fine mist of disinfectant solution into the air. The tiny particles fill the space and eventually settle on all surfaces, including the walls. This ‘fog’ of disinfectant then kills all viruses and bacteria on these surfaces and prevents them from spreading to other people when they touch the door handles, countertops, light switches and other objects.

This is a highly effective method for sanitising hard-to-reach surfaces as well as high-touch objects within a room. Businesses can truly benefit from these offerings as they will rest assured that their workspace remains safe and hygienic. Lockdown is the ideal time to opt for fogging services since there are fewer employees or customers within the premises.

IWESCO offers expert fogging services

We can have a team on-site within a day or two. Smaller businesses in remote towns may need to request our fogging services a few days in advance to allow us time to prepare the equipment and travel to your destination. Our team members are highly trained and wear full personal protective equipment (PPE), including hazmat suits, goggles and gloves. This ensures that they are protected from any contact with the virus and also prevents them from carrying spores to new locations.

The fogging equipment we use is specialised and the disinfectant is not harmful to human health nor the goods produced at the factory or warehouse. We can guarantee a world-class service and our team has been fogging since the onset of the pandemic, which means that they are well-versed in the best practises.
