Disinfectant Foggers and Disinfectant Sprayers, What's the deal?
on Wednesday, 19 August 2020. Posted in General
If you have a large space that you want to disinfect quickly and effectively i.e. your home, your business, a vehicle, etc. You’ve probably considered using a disinfectant fogger or disinfectant sprayer. A disinfectant fogger or disinfectant sprayer is capable of dispensing and dispersing a large amount of disinfectant spray or antibacterial spray in a short period of time.
If you have a 1000sq foot or larger space, going at your disinfecting protocols with a disinfectant spray bottle and cloth, or even a mop, is going to be a difficult task…especially if there is equipment, furniture, personal items, high-frequency community touch-points, etc. that need to be thoroughly disinfected. Going over each square foot with disinfectant spray and cloth to ensure proper disinfection in a space that size is going to be time consuming to say the least. On the other hand it's possible you’ll be able to be a bit more efficient with how much product you use because you’ll be in control of each area on which you spray disinfectant.
For covering large areas, a disinfectant sprayer or disinfectant fogger machine is a great solution because it’s going to save you time…but maybe not always money. Many disinfectant foggers or disinfectant sprayers are large pieces of equipment that churn out huge amounts of antimicrobial spray for disinfecting and although it might save you time, you might be using much more disinfectant spray or antimicrobial spray than you anticipated, and at the end of the day, spending more money.
A disinfectant fogger or disinfectant sprayer can work effectively to be part of your regular disinfecting protocols and routines but what is the best disinfectant fogger or disinfectant sprayer for you?
For some people hearing the term disinfectant fogger or disinfectant sprayer conjures up an image like this fogger used to disperse industrial strength pesticides.
Or this agricultural fogger…something used in agriculture, again with pesticides, to cover huge tracts of land and space in a short period of time. This type of application is really more like fumigation, actually.
Advances in disinfectant fogger and disinfectant sprayer technology have allowed for smaller versions of foggers and sprayers to become popular and one term that you’ll undoubtedly come across in your search for a disinfectant fogger or disinfectant sprayer is “Electrostatic”. So what is an electrostatic fogger or electrostatic sprayer?
Basically an electrostatic fogger or electrostatic sprayer uses an electrostatic charge to charge the particles that make up the disinfectant spray, which causes the particles to repel each other, or disperse in a fog/cloud/fine spray and stick to surfaces. It’s the same sort of technology used when you get a spray tan or in factories, like car factories, that have to paint large areas in a short period of time. Electrostatic foggers and electrostatic sprayers work but at the end of the day they can be very expensive. They can also be unwieldy pieces of equipment that require you to wear a backpack or roll a tank of disinfectant spray along with you as you clean. Some require specialized disinfectants to be used with the fogger or sprayer, and some of these disinfectants are proprietary, which is why you have to call a cleaning service to utilize them.
GTech Products are all about putting the power to disinfect your home or business in your hands so it's not necessary to use an electrostatic fogger. Although GTech Clean disinfectant can work with an electrostatic, it defeats the purpose of a system that is both easy to use and affordable. A great, and GTech Protection recommended, alternative to an electrostatic fogger or electrostatic sprayer is a disinfectant fogger or disinfectant sprayer that utilizes an air compressor instead of electrostatic technology. This type of disinfectant fogger is known as a "ULV" fogger/sprayer or Ultra Low Volume fogger/sprayer. The most effective model of disinfectant fogger or disinfectant sprayer that we have found in this category is the nuPower Compact Trigger Sprayer, which outputs the optimal amount of product to be both effective in killing pathogens and cost-efficient.
The nuPower Compact Trigger Sprayer is an electrical ULV disinfectant sprayer with a large reservoir for holding disinfectant spray and, as the name suggests, a trigger control mechanism that lets you determine the flow of disinfectant spray being put out. It’s perfect for use with GTech Clean because it doesn’t require liquid specially formulated for use with electrostatic technology, and the power source is consistent.
Using GTech Clean disinfectant spray and a nuPower Compact Trigger Sprayer, you can completely disinfect, deodorize, and eliminate mold and mildew in a 1000 sq foot room in minutes. GTech Clean comes in 5 gallon and 1 gallon containers, which are perfect for using the disinfectant fogger or disinfectant sprayer.
Though GTech Clean is specially formulated in that it not only kills viruses and bacteria on contact but it leaves a microscopic layer of protection on any hard or soft surface that lasts for up to 5 days. Even doing a complete, “deep decontamination” of your space with GTech Clean and the nuPower Compact Trigger disinfectant sprayer the cost breaks down to about less than a penny per square foot. The nuPower Compact Trigger Sprayer is available here on our website and, on it’s own, is a great value compared to other foggers, like electrostatic foggers, and battery-powered foggers.
Following up on the use of the disinfectant fogger or disinfectant sprayer by using GTech Clean disinfectant spray from a spray bottle (you can use our awesome 16oz. bottles or fill any spray bottle from the 5 gallon or 1 gallon containers) and regularly disinfecting high-frequency community touch-points, will give you total, long-lasting, protection against viruses and bacteria.
