Infection Control by Fogging

Decontaminating with Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour technology

ULV HPV Decontamination fogging in progress

Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour (HPV) is a method of chemical disinfection as used in NHS hospitals when the environment has been potentially contaminated with a virulent pathogen or as part of a proactive deep cleaning programme.

HPV is an oxidising agent and has a lethal effect on viruses, bacteria, yeast, mould and spores. When it comes into contact with micro-organisms it oxidises the cells or spores, thus deactivating them.

HPV is biodegradable, non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-allergenic, it leaves no residue and it doesn’t develop germ resistance.

Our ULV (Ultra Low Volume) fogging equipment mists aqueous hydrogen peroxide to facilitate total disinfection of the area and contents being treated. The HPV is generated at high speed, ensuring distribution to all parts of a room. A very fine layer of micro-condensation is formed on all exposed surfaces, deactivating micro-organisms.

Treated spaces can be reoccupied after 30 minutes.

Please note: Whilst this is an approved infection control procedure in hospitals, as far as we are aware testing for its effectiveness against the new Covid-19 virus has not yet been documented.
