The ways are many, but...
There are many methods of decontamination, but their effectiveness is often unsatisfactory.
Among the commonly used methods of removing pathogenic microorganisms
include manual cleaning of surfaces using disinfectant liquids, sprays and
special wipes. Unfortunately, it is insufficient to effectively get rid of
of pathogens, and in numerous cases manual disinfection leaves dangerous microbial contamination on surfaces
dangerous microbial contamination.
Another method, quite common in offices, is the elimination of pathogens using
UV lamps. As in the case of manual disinfection, this method does not
guaranteeing complete safety. It must be remembered that UV radiation is a factor
mutagenic and carcinogenic. It is so dangerous to humans that in the US this method has not
received a recommendation from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
Dry mist decontamination - maximum safety
UV lamp is not fully effective because it does not disinfect hard-to-reach areas
in rooms after disinfection leaves an unpleasant smell (ozone)
UV rays damage plastics
the cost of purchasing the device is high
It turned out, after many studies, that decontamination with the use of
volatile substances, when gaseous disinfectants are able to reach the
the most inaccessible places in the premises.
Dry mist decontamination is a method of disinfection designed for increased
Human safety. It provides a long-lasting effect (disinfectant particles
persist on the substrate for up to 10) days and is very suitable for decontamination of
Although it requires ventilation after disinfection, dry mist decontamination itself
does not change the temperature of the room being decontaminated, so it can find application
in such places as medical facilities, ambulances, means of transportation, residential facilities,
commercial and service, industrial, teaching facilities, offices, public institutions,
An important feature of this method is the safe disinfection of electrical equipment.
Dry mist does not interact with electronics, and can be used, for example, to disinfect
laboratory apparatus and medical equipment powered by electricity. It does not destroy materials
(does not bleach), does not leave odors, and is the best method for disinfecting absorbent fabrics,
used to cover mattresses, beds and chairs.
In the opinion of medical authorities, the method of decontamination by dry mist fogging
is the most effective and safest disinfection method available on the world market.
It is of particular importance in medical applications, especially in hospital wards,
where patients with COVID-19 are treated. dry mist decontamination is recommended by the professional journal
trade journal The Journal of Hospital Infection, in its March 2021 issue.
Experts recognize the high effectiveness of this method and delineate its important role
role in the strategy to fight the pandemic. Dry mist decontamination gives effective protection against
harmful bacteria, viruses (including rotavirus and SARS-CoV-2), and fungi.
