Electrostatic HOCL Fogging Services In Williamsburg, VA

National Exterminating Company is proud to offer home and business owners across Virginia an effective way to fight the spread of COVID-19 as well as other bacteria, viruses, and spores: Electrostatic HOCL fogging. This deep cleaning service treatment uses droplets of hydrochloric acid (HOCL) disinfectant that are magnetically charged, making them attracted to numerous surfaces and able to stick to the sides and crevices of the surfaces they’re applied to. Using foggers, these droplets are sprayed throughout the application area, disinfecting all the surfaces present in the process.

HOCL is effective at killing microscopic organisms, but is not harmful to people or pets – making it the perfect solution for safety-conscious home or business owners. Help fight the spread of diseases and contaminants in your home today, with help from National Exterminating Company’s Electrostatic fogging services. 

Our Electrostatic Fogging Service Offerings

After you contact us to schedule Electrostatic fogging, one of our trained technicians will arrive at your home or business and walk you through the fogging process and explain the specifics of your treatment, such as rooms that you do not want directly treated.

A fogger takes the HOCL solution and creates a fine mist of nanobubbles. As the solution leaves the fogger, it is given a charge. These charged solution particles are attracted to surfaces and wrap around them, rather than each particle laying on top of one another. Fogging keeps the HOCL solution from pooling and soaking, so you won’t need to dry off or rinse surfaces in the room afterward.

Electrostatic fogging is a quick procedure: the treatment for a 3000sqft home takes approximately 20-30 minutes or less. While the solution is not harmful to people or pets once applied, everyone except the technician should plan to be outside the home during the treatment. Once the treatment has been completed, you will need to stay outside of the home for 10 additional minutes. Afterward, you can return into a safer home or business than the one you stepped outside from.

Why Choose Electrostatic Fogging For Your Virginia Home

Electrostatic fogging is a disinfecting and sanitizing treatment that has gained wide popularity in the wake of COVID-19 due its capability to kill the bacteria that can spread the disease.

HOCL solution kills the virus that causes COVID, the SARS CoV-2, as well as Staphylococcus Aureus (Staph), Streptococcus Pyogenes (Strep), Influenza A (H1N1), Escheria Coli (E-Coli), Adenovirus and Candida Albicans (Yeast Infection causing Fungus), and numerous other diseases.

HOCL fogging is safe for those with respiratory conditions, unlike bleach or ammonia. It destroys a wide range of bacteria, viruses, spores and fungus. It is relatively inexpensive. It makes the air in your home or office smell fresher and cleaner. HOCL fogging treatment leaves no unpleasant smell or after effects. The solution itself acts as an air neutralizer without any strong chemical odor. In fact, the treatment actually helps eliminate stale, musty smells as well as odors from pets and cigarette smoke.

Little to no prep work is required, except to cover your fish tank and vacate the building.

Electronic Fogging Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Does electrostatic fogging treatment get rid of COVID-19?

Yes. HOCL kills the virus that causes COVID, the SARS CoV-2. HOCL also kills other viruses, bacteria and spores such as Staphylococcus Aureus (Staph), Streptococcus Pyogenes (Strep), Influenza A (H1N1), Escherichia Coli (E-Coli), Adenovirus, and Candida Albicans (Yeast Infection-causing fungus). 

Is HOCL harmful to my family and pets?

HOCL is an endogenous substance to us all (all mammals and birds) and is part of the makeup of our white blood cells which fight infection as it is introduced to the body. HOCL is safe for all mammals. HOCL can be toxic to fish. All tanks should be covered during the service and remain covered for an hour afterward.

How long does electrostatic treatment last?

The treatment itself typically takes 20-30 minutes or less based on the size of the treatment area. How long the decontamination lasts will vary. The treatment works as a starting point. Viruses and bacteria will be destroyed once the service is complete but it is up to the customer to maintain the surfaces as well as personal hygiene ie. handwashing in order to prevent contamination in the future. Once the treated surfaces are exposed to contact from humans it has the potential to be contaminated again.

How often should I have Electrostatic HOCL treatment performed?

For the best results, the experts at National Exterminating Company recommend a treatment for your home or business once per month. However, it can be scheduled with us as often as weekly. We also offer quarterly and one-time services.

How should I prepare my home or office for Electrostatic HOCL treatment?

No prep work is required EXCEPT to cover your fish tank. However, if you are trying to decide whether you should do your general household cleaning before or after the service, we recommend cleaning prior to the service rather than immediately after. The HOCL cuts through biofilm left by many household cleaners such as bleach and ammonia based cleaners. This is why we refer to our treatment as a deep cleaning service.

Will I need to wipe down surfaces in my home or business after Electrostatic HOCL treatment?

Surfaces in the application area do not need to be wiped or rinsed afterward. The nanobubble mist is very fine and dries within 2-3 minutes. Once dry, it isn’t seen on surfaces. The HOCL solution is safe to mammals and birds.

Will the Electrostatic HOCL treatment make my house smell like chemicals?

No. The HOCL solution has no odor and acts as an air neutralizer, eliminating stale, musty smells as well as odors from pets and cigarette smoke.

Will the treatment cause my allergies to flare up?

HOCL fogging cleaning treatment may actually help those with allergies find relief as it breaks down the particles that could be triggering your allergic tendencies in the air as well as on surfaces. Killing the bacteria and fungus is part of the Deep Cleaning process involved with each service. You may notice it is easier to cope with allergies once the service has been completed.
