Fogging: A New Disinfecting Process to Keep You Safe

As we come together again, safety is of utmost importance. Even though doors are opening and masks are coming off, it doesn’t mean that COVID-19 is eradicated. Plus, there still is no vaccine! The vulnerable among us are still at risk and our hospitals are, too.

This is why at Green Up 2 Clean Up, we added an additional service to cleaning and sanitizing: fogging. Our methods for cleaning and sanitizing have always been top-notch and safe for the environment. By adding the fogging in our cleaning and sanitizing process, we are going that extra step in the battle against COVID-19.

As a cleaning service, we realize our important position in the fight against COVID-19. We have been monitoring the updates and best practices provided by the CDC. For reducing the spread of the disease, the CDC approved a disinfection process that includes cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting surfaces.

Doing just one of these steps is not effective! You must do all of the steps in order for the process to work correctly. Even though cleaning/sanitizing/disinfecting sound like interchangeable terms, they are not.

The difference between cleaning, sanitizing, & disinfecting:

  • Cleaning: The process of removing dirt, dust, spills, and other things that aren’t supposed to be on a surface. Cleaning involves scrubbing, polishing, and washing.
  • Sanitizing: This process reduces the number of germs and bacteria on a surface.
  • Disinfecting: This process kills bacteria and viruses, like coronaviruses, on hard, nonporous surfaces. The label should indicate which viruses and bacteria that the product kills.
