Frequently Asked Questions
What sanitiser is used?
Qualchem Super V (Dyno Protect prepared version)
How is fog more effective than wet spraying?
The small droplet covers surfaces thoroughly whereas with wet spraying the gaps between droplets could be large enough areas for viruses and bacteria to survive.
What can you sanitise?
We focus on building interiors, office blocks and warehouses and can do inside vehicles as well if required.
What is residual action of Dyno Protect sanitising system?
Expectations are that residue will kill viruses and bacteria for up to 30 days on surfaces that have not been cleaned after treatment or haven't worn off from use.
Is there anything that will stop Dyno Protect Sanitising System from killing viruses and bacteria?
• Dust and dirt on treated surfaces (we recommend cleaning prior to sanitisation)
• Sunlight (however sunlight can also kill viruses and bacteria)
• Cleaning off the residue
Where is sanitiser applied to in a building?
Sanitiser is applied to walls up to 3m high, return air ducts in ceilings, floors and all equipment (desks, tables, chairs, cupboards, tools etc.). It is not normally applied directly to ceilings unless specified.
How high can you sanitise?
We can sanitise up to 10m without platforms if required.
What if something will be moved later and needs to be sanitised underneath?
Let us know - our applicators may be able to move things or return for a spot treatment. Items like chairs are mostly turned around to get full cover.
I don't want residue in some areas but would still like to kill any bugs that could be on surfaces?
Cover any areas of concern with cover sheets and ask applicators to remove these immediately after treatment while the fog is still in the building.
Should I clean glass after treatment?
A fine mist will be left on glass surfaces after treatment. For clear vision you may like to clean this mist however you will be removing the residual action.
Do you sanitise outside?
We typically fog anywhere 'under canopy' including doorways and building entrances. ULV cold fogging is not an ideal application method for open spaces.
Will fire, smoke and/or burglar alarms be activated ?
Yes, they often are activated but not always. Have a plan and notify any monitoring service. They normally shut off in about 20 minutes when the fog settles but may need to be reset.
Is your sanitiser registered?
The active ingredient we are using is registered for use in the USA against CoV-2* (the cause of COVID-19) with 10 minutes exposure. While it has not yet been fully tested against this virus, it is expected to be effective based on it
• Demonstrating efficacy against a harder-to-kill virus
• Qualifying for the emerging viral pathogens claim
• Demonstrating efficacy against another human coronavirus similar to SARS-CocV-2
Note: SARS-CoV-2 is a new virus. Such pathogens are often unavailable commercially for laboratory testing**
