Fumigating with Sanosil : Do’s & Dont’s
What is Modern Fumigation?
Aerosol / Fumigation disinfection: Here, disinfectant is automatically blown into the air as a mist using a automatic device. This mist settles on the surfaces and disinfects them. It is the most modern method of surface disinfection. It closes gaps in the effectiveness of manual surface disinfection and is establishing itself as an important instrument in the fight against, among other things, antibiotic-resistant germs.

What’s the procedure for aerosol disinfection with automatic devices?
The procedure is as follows:
• Pre-clean the room
• Perform manual spray-wipe disinfection of all critical areas (e.g. handles)
• Set up the Q-Jet unit and fill with Sanosil disinfectant
• Calculate the size of the room and program the unit.
• Close and, where necessary, seal all openings (windows, doors, hatches, etc.), and turn off any ventilation
• Start the unit and leave the room.
• Leave the disinfection programme to run, then leave for the minimum exposure time.
What treatment is required before fogging?
The following distinction needs to be made: For preventive room disinfection in offices, conference rooms, commercial premises, gyms, spas, hotel rooms and care homes, thoroughly cleaning all surfaces with a vacuum cleaner and damp cloth is sufficient.
In medical areas, such as doctors’ offices, dental practices, hospitals and areas with a high risk of infection, cleaning should also be accompanied by traditional surface disinfection.
Do you need to wear protective clothing when operating the device?
There are no special handling or storage requirements for the Sanosil disinfectant used, and it is not a hazardous substance. However, it can cause irritation if it comes into contact with the eyes or skin. For this reason, we recommend wearing rubber gloves and simple safety glasses when filling the device.
If entering the room during or immediately after fogging, you must wear a respirator (CO NO P3) and full safety goggles.
Can people remain in the room during disinfection?
No, that’s not possible. People and animals are not permitted to remain in the room during disinfection. The hydrogen peroxide in Sanosil disinfectants acts as an irritant during the active room disinfection step and must not be inhaled over an extended period. If you inadvertently enter the room during the disinfection phase, the active substance hydrogen peroxide is noticeable and unpleasant (irritant effect on inhalation). This short-term irritation on inhalation is harmless, and will subside again quickly after you leave the room. However, you must wear a respirator (CO NO P3) and full safety goggles if you spend a longer period of time in the room during the disinfection phase.
How does Sanosil disinfectant work?
The product is considered a safe, reliable room disinfectant and has been successfully used worldwide for many years. The main active ingredient is specially stabilised, environmentally friendly hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), further enhanced by small quantities of silver. The result is an antimicrobial effect many times greater than that of normal hydrogen peroxide. The silver left on surfaces is invisible and non-toxic, but effectively deters and delays microbial recolonisation. This unique combination of active ingredients achieves maximum efficacy at low active ingredient concentrations.
What happens to the active substances hydrogen peroxide and silver after Sanosil has been fogged into a room?
The two substances float, firmly bound to each other, as drops through the air until they land on a surface. There the hydrogen peroxide decomposes into water and oxygen, while the silver remains stuck to the surface.
Are any disinfectant residues left behind after use?
99.995% of cold fogged Sanosil decomposes into water and oxygen within a short time. The silver residue remaining on a 1 m² surface in a room in which Sanosil disinfectant has been cold fogged at an effective concentration weighs less a grain of salt – whilst still being sufficient to inhibit microbial recolonisation.
The silver residue binds to the surface and can only be removed with water, detergent and rubbing.
The amount of residual silver is so small that any discolouration will only become apparent after many years of using the Q-Jet system, if at all
