Why haven’t I seen this before?

Hypochlorous was discovered in the 19th century by a British scientist. It was actually manufactured for the first time in the 1960’s. There was always a problem however in that no one was able to make a stable version that had a shelf life so it could be packaged. The only organisations that could take advantage of this incredible product were large scale industrial and agricultural operations such as dairy and poultry units, where they produced non-stable Hypochlorous onsite for immediate use. Our team and the scientists have worked out how to stabilise the active ingredient so we can now make it available to everyone.

How often would you have to apply this disinfectant in order to ensure that there are no viruses or bacteria on the surface?

In other words, how long would the protection from bacteria and viruses last?

As long as no contamination comes again in contact with the same surface. Some other chemical/Alcoholic disinfectant manufacturers claim that they are effective for longer time, but the truth is that it is chemical compounds and the exposure to it, is much dangerous if they are available on the surface.

 

By using the Fogger, will this affect the Fire Alarm in the building?

Do not apply the fog directly to smoke detectors. Typical application is to direct the fogger’s nozzle 45 degree toward surfaces need to be disinfected and by taking into consideration that the disinfectant is a (99.5%) water having a considerably heavy weight droplet that naturally falls by gravity on surfaces, therefore fogging the disinfectant will not trigger the intelligent fire alarm system.
