What is Chlorine Dioxide Fogging?

Chlorine dioxide fogging is a decontamination treatment preventing biofilm loads such as bacteria, mold, viruses, and other microorganisms from thriving in your facility. Along with product recalls and facility shutdowns, these unseen microorganisms can potentially cost your business millions of dollars. This solution is not as costly as it may seem. It is affordable and can be utilized regularly to knock-down the microbial load within your facility. As one of IFC’s decontamination methods, chlorine dioxide fogging services will improve your food safety program and keep your facility ongoing.

How Are Chlorine Dioxide Fogging Treatments Completed?

Similar to a gas sterilant treatment, on-site generation is required. Depending on your microbial challenges, this service provides a monthly or quarterly routine treatment. The efficiency of the service includes no required sealing of treatment areas or evacuation of faculty from the facility. A full treatment takes less than 4 hours to complete. With no residue behind and no post-treatment cleaning necessary, a Chlorine Dioxide Fogging Decontamination treatment gets you back in your facility quickly, returning to operations sooner than expected.

Sanitation Innovation: The Rise of Foaming Probiotic Cleaners

No matter what kind of food processing or manufacturing your company does, it’s likely that your facility produces fragrant waste. Most often these byproducts are stored in broad areas which, if left unchecked, can serve as heavy attractants to all kinds of pests...
