FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is disinfectant fogging of surfaces?


Disinfectant fogging is a process of aerial dispersion of a dry vapour, allowing treatment of hard surfaces, even unreachable areas, with an automated dispersion machine, the Nocomax.

It provides an even distribution of the disinfectant on the surfaces in the area being treated.




How does the process work? / How is it successful on germs?


The Nocomax machine disperses a dry vapour to treat air and surfaces in an automated way.

The liquid is brought into contact by the machine with ionized, heated air, creating a dry vapour of Hydrogen Peroxide ions. These ions have a destructive effect on all micro-organisms in a short period of time.




How long does the disinfectant fogging treatment take?


The duration of the treatment is defined by the room dimensions and the pathogen type present.

To give an example of treatment time – treatment of a 500m3 room:

  • diffusion time: 5 minutes
  • contact time: 60 minutes
  • total time taken for disinfection: 65 minutes

Because each treatment is unique, Ability Enterprises will work with you to tailor a treatment specific to your area as required.




Is it biodegradable? Does it leave residue?


The product contains only hydrogen peroxide. When delivered according to instruction it is not corrosive. The solution can safely be used to treat rooms containing medical equipment, electronics, and furnishings.




Is the solution corrosive?


The product contains only hydrogen peroxide. When delivered according to instruction it is not corrosive. The solution can safely be used to treat rooms containing medical equipment, electronics, and furnishings.




Is disinfectant fogging of surfaces hazardous to humans (users)?


Since the aerial disinfection is operated in the absence of human presence (and it does not leave residue on the surfaces treated), the operation is safe for the user, provided that the requirements are met.




What is the disinfectant solution used?


Nocolyse is a ready for use, bio disinfectant containing 6% hydrogen peroxide and silver. The silver stabilises and preserves the hydrogen peroxide.

The solution is diffused in the form of gas (particle size 5µ) and ensures a perfectly uniform disinfection of the room.

Nocolyse has a lethal effect on viruses, bacteria, yeast, moulds and spores.

Nocolyse is biodegradable, non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-allergenic, leaves no residue and doesn’t allow the development of resistance.




Can pathogens develop resistance to the germ?


The disinfectant fogging concept disperses biodegradable products and leaves no residue on the surface. Resistance can not be developed.

Other disinfectant fogging systems which disperse non-biodegradable products and leave a residue on treated surfaces can develop a resistance to a germ.

In fact, this treatment is used in hospitals to combat pathogens that are already resistant to standard cleaning processes.




Is it effective against Covid-19?


Yes, Nocolyse, when delivered in the appropriate concentration is effective against bacteria, viruses and fungi. This includes COVID-19.




Does disinfectant fogging replace cleaning?


No, it does not. Disinfectant fogging is recommended after normal cleaning of an area.

Appropriate cleaning before allows the removal of dirt and microbes with a detergent.

Following a thorough clean, a treatment with the Nocomax System is regarded as a Gold Standard Service.




What other uses are there for this machine?


This system can be used to dispense a range of disinfectants and insecticides:

  • Remove Odours
  • Surfaces that come into contact with food
  • Deodoriser
  • Flying and crawling insects
  • Mosquito treatment
  • Anti-dust mite treatment
  • Specific anti-bedbug treatment/larvicide
  • Insecticide treatment adapted for the food industry




Is disinfectant fogging of surfaces subject to a effectiveness standard?


Nocospray is approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (ARTG 157843) as a hospital grade disinfectant.

Studies conducted in multiple hospitals across multiple countries (Australia, USA, France, Canada, Netherlands, Switzerland and Sweden) have demonstrated the effectiveness of this system. CASA have even licenced this system for use around aircraft.




What is it effective against?


Disinfectant fogging is effective against bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores.




When should I use the disinfectant fogging machine?


The service can be undertaken as a preventative measure for an area, or as a curative treatment.
