Keeping Things Clean In A COVID World
With Aotearoa now two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, and since the arrival of the Omicron variant to our shores, most kiwis should be well practiced at keeping things clean. One thing the pandemic has improved is our awareness of how important hygiene is. The things we touch, people we meet, even the air we breathe every day – all are areas we encounter germs.
By now we’re mostly used to wearing masks, using hand sanitiser and cleaning surfaces more often. But what about areas where nasty bugs can hide away, that are harder to reach or can’t be cleaned by normal methods? As we navigate the next few months living with COVID-19, we need to be more mindful of how we clean our homes and businesses.
Where can bugs hide?
While most people remember cleaning obvious spots like tables, door handles and counters, other areas often go forgotten. Chairs, floors, walls, behind furniture or appliances, and tight nooks are all places where airborne droplets can land and be missed during routine cleaning. As the weather cools, cold and flu viruses will start to rear up again, making it even more important to protect our loved ones.
Cleaning hard-to-reach places One cleaning method that can be effective against airborne viruses and bacteria is fogging. This method disperses micro- droplets of disinfectants, biocides and fungicides that get into spaces standard cleaning methods miss.
It can also prevent the spread of mould, known to cause health issues if left unchecked. Fogging/misting services also combat pervasive odours and pet-related diseases.
Fogging has become extremely popular overseas for cleaning homes and businesses, but it’s hard to find a good provider in New Zealand. Thankfully, Smart Fogging Solutions in Taupō are already servicing local homes and businesses with their high-tech ULV fogging machines, which are food-safe, pet-safe and kill 99.9% of viruses (including coronavirus).
