Questions? We’ve Got Answers!
Does Maid to Shine have to clean my home in order to get a fogging?
It’s most effective after a thorough cleaning, however you can purchase just the fogging service.
What is actually in the cleaning solution used to disinfect?
We are using hypochlorous acid HOCl (not to be confused with hydrocloric acid). Hypochlorous provides a unique power to eradicate dangerous organisms while not causing harm to our cells. HOCl is one of the only agents that is both nontoxic to the delicate cells that can heal our wounds while being lethal to almost all known dangerous bacteria and viruses that threaten our health.
What is that smell?
What you are smelling is a compound call Hypochlorous acid (H-O-Cl) (not to be confused with hydrochloric acid). Some people describe this as bleach smell or beach smell. HOCl is a weak acid at a pH of about 6.5 (7 is a neutral pH) and is 100% biodegradable. The smell should dissipate after 1-2 hours. Just to make sure everyone understands, this is NOT bleach or chlorine we are using (bleach is Sodium Hypochorite (NaOCl)).
Is Hypochlorous Acid dangerous?
Besides being certified by the EPA as harmless to humans in the concentrations we use, HOCl is one of the only solutions that is both nontoxic to human cells while being lethal to almost all known dangerous bacteria, viruses, fungus, and molds that threatens our health.
Can I touch it? Eat it? Breath it? Put it in my eye?
It is instantly safe for both you and the technician applying the solution. There is no needed safety equipment to apply HOCl. It is registered safe to use on restaurant and food equipment. HOCl is used in some eye drop products. There are also 100% HOCl products that are used for washing veggies and fruit.
Is it safe for my pets?
It is instantly safe for everyone including your dogs and cats.
Ok, but does it work?
Our product is registered with the EPA to kill the worst of the worst bacteria and viruses. Hospitals, schools, airlines, nursing homes, and government buildings are using the same solution to disinfect their buildings and vehicles. In fact, schools, when they are in session, found that HOCl was 3 times more effective at disinfecting and reduced the number of days students were absent from class.
Will it discolor my fabrics/carpet?
No, Hypochlorous Acid is fabric safe and can be use on any color-safe fabric.
What do I need to do to get ready?
We ask that pets, children, and yourself be in a separate room as we fog to allow the solution at least 5 minutes of undisturbed time while the solution does its disinfecting magic. The machine sounds like a vacuum and atomizes the solution in order to be fogged; because of this, paperwork can be blown around. Please put all paperwork away as it could fly around and get water vapor on them. Electronics are fine where they are. Paintings and anything sensitive to higher humidity should be moved into a safe area or covered. It seems to be fine for birds (who are sensitive to most anything), however as a precaution we are asking that bird friends be moved elsewhere. We also ask that open food containers be placed inside cupboards.
Can this replace my regular cleaning?
No, this is strictly for disinfecting purposes meaning it will not get rid of soil stains, dust or build up that a traditional cleaning would take care of.
How long will it take?
It takes roughly 30 minutes to fog 5,000 sq. feet.
Can I have my business fogged as well?
Yes, this is for anyone who wants a deep disinfecting. Whether you’re a business, church, daycare, etc. we’re happy to work with you. We even disinfect vehicles!
How often should I have my home or business fogged?
