What Disinfectant Should You Use?
You can use any Virucidal Disinfectant (anti-viral disinfectant)
Look for a disinfectant that has been tested to BS EN 14476.
Craftex Micro Kill has been assessed for virucidal activity following test methods such as BS EN 14476 and BS EN 14675. Results show it is effective against a range of viruses such as the H1N1 influenza virus, Norovirus, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV and the Ebola virus. The Coronavirus is not currently available for commercial laboratories to test against so we cannot give a definitive contact time and dilution rate. However, given the above test data we can reasonably expect Craftex Micro Kill to have efficacy against the virus. We would therefore recommend using the product for general disinfection in the infection prevention and control for the 2019-nCoV.
How To Use A Fogging Machine?
Using a fogger should be as routine as using a hoover or mopping the floor. We recommend using the machine at least once every 30 days on low traffic areas such as offices. In high traffic areas open to the general public we recommend using the fogger every 15 days.
Remember using a fogging machine is easy and quick to use and will provide your customers with confidence that you take sanitation seriously, which will become a selling point in the future.
We strongly believe that a premises cleanliness will be a critical factor in the businesses future.
Firstly make sure you are wearing suitable PPE Goggles, mask, gloves, and overalls is advisable and recommended.
We recommend cleaning all surfaces with a damp cloth with a suitable cleaning solution. Remember hard to get areas will be cleaned with the fog mist. Try and wipe down all high touch areas such as worktops, chairs, telephones, keyboards, door handles, light switches, bathrooms and kitchens.
As cleaning regularly will become normal for most, perhaps hourly checks on certain areas already in place in a number of businesses. Moving straight to using the fogging machine will be achievable reducing the time required for the end of day deep clean.
Mix your chosen disinfectant (we recommend Virucidal Disinfectant BS EN14476 which is Government Approved) externally in a suitable container (Helps prevent COVID-19 Spread) in accordance with the manufacturers label.
Do not fill the ULV Cold Fogger Machine with more than 5 litres of diluted product at a time.

You can cover fast areas without missing any surfaces or the need to wipe afterwards. The sanitiser lands dry on all surfaces hard or soft without causing any harm and offers a full covering of disinfectant.
Do not operate the fogging machine in an enclosed area for more than 30 minutes. You can cover over 1000sq ft in under 5 minutes – the more objects your have in the room may take longer.

After use rinse the tank with water and dispose of the solution done a drain. Allow to dry before storing, you can dry quicker by using paper towels. Allows store away from direct sunlight and areas below freezing.
