OHSISA Hygiene disinfecting service is based on the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center of Decease Control (CDC) standards, we follow all the specified methods, statements and procedures to be able to certify the premises free of any bacteria, viruses and fungi (incl COVID 19).
We identify, spray, and wipe potential high-risk touch surfaces like light switches, door handles, taps etc. We also damp wipe computer keyboards, mouse and any electronic surfaces which is liquid sensitive. After this process we use fogging equipment creating a 5-micron fogging solution and then fog the entire premises. By using this method, the chemical reaches all areas within the premises ensuring that areas not hand wiped is also disinfected. These areas remain hygienically disinfected for up to 7 days. Hand wiped areas will only remain disinfected as long as the chemical is present, if cleaned afterwards this surface can get re-infected. We then also, because of this suggest that a follow up schedule is put into place with normal disinfectant or ADI product we supply. The disinfectant can be used with existing cleaning methods and need additional personal protective equipment or training. 
The premises can also be used within an hour after disinfecting as it leaves no fogging residue and has no hazardous characteristics making it risk free for the environment and people. This is of great benefit over and above any other method and chemicals currently in the market.
