Here at 1st Commercial Cleaning, we understand the importance of keeping businesses safe and protecting staff and customers. Our sister company OvenKing has developed an infection and decontamination control service. This aims to prevent the spread of infections, viruses and bacteria, such as Covid-19. As businesses and workplaces reopen, we must minimise the risk from Coronavirus and other illnesses. These can be harmful to staff clients and customers, and disrupt our businesses. You can read more about our fogging technology, disinfecting and antibacterial fogging here.


What is Fogging?

Fogging is a new deep cleaning solution. Trained professionals in PPE will use a specialist machine and a spray with a chemical around the room. This mist reaches cracks and crevices around the room, including floor and ceiling walls. The micro-droplets enter the air stream killing any viral, bacterial or fungal particles. They find even those that have not yet settled.


How does it work against Coronavirus?

The chemical we use has been tested against Coronavirus and proven to be effective in only five minutes! It breaks through the cell wall of the virus. This disrupts the respiration of the microbe, causing it to be unable to take oxygen. This chemical is also effective against other microbes such as bacteria and fungi. It also destroys other viruses and bacteria such as Hepatitis B, HIV, SARS, Norovirus, E.Coli, Salmonella, Streptococcus and Listeria.


Why is it more effective than a regular deep clean?

Disinfectants and commercial and domestic cleaning products denature microbes but do not kill them. Therefore, the microbes can build a tolerance to chemicals and build resistance against them. With fogging, the microbes are destroyed instantly and cannot survive.


How safe is it?

The chemical we use is non-toxic, non-irritant and non-corrosive. This is harmless to humans and animals. Once the process is completed you can return inside the building or room immediately. The room is completed 10x faster than a manual clean, meaning that you can get back to work fast!


What companies should use fogging?

Our machines are fully portable and able to be used anywhere! We clean many high-risk areas, such as hospitals, care homes, nurseries, schools. This also includes popular areas such as gyms, home offices, hotels, area of food preparation, restaurants and pubs. We can arrange a suitable and convenient time, including evenings and weekends. Additionally, we provide a certificate with your business name and date of completion. This also includes a copy of the chemical details to reassure clients, staff and customers.


Fogging is a new specialist cleaning and decontamination method, using the latest industry technologies. Therefore, we highly recommend our service to reduce risk levels on an ongoing basis. Contact us today or call us for a free quote on 01202 705040.
