When it comes to environmental decontamination, Ionised Hydrogen Peroxide Fogging Technology (also known as iHP technology) is an excellent choice as it replaces the traditional formaldehyde or chlorine-based applications offering fast, residue-free and repeatable cycles within a sensitive and controlled environment.

These environmental decontamination and cleaning and decontamination solutions are applicable for airborne and surface contamination control. Unlike some other alternatives, we use a “dry mist” solution, which means that electrical equipment is completely safe to be left in while the fogging takes place.

Across Europe we are seeing ionised hydrogen peroxide fogging being used as environmental decontamination solutions in offices, retail stores, and public transport, in fact, it can be used wherever people congregate and if there is the risk of infection.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is environmental decontamination?

Environmental decontamination is the process of cleaning up or removing hazardous materials from an area. This can be done through a variety of methods, depending on the type and amount of contamination present.
Common contaminants include chemical spills, oil leaks, sewage overflows, and radioactive materials. Decontamination is often required when these kinds of incidents occur in order to make the area safe for people to enter and work in again.
There are three main types of environmental decontamination: physical, chemical, and biological. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, so the best method for a particular situation will vary depending on the specific circumstances.

What are the benefits of environmental decontamination?

There are many benefits to environmental decontamination. By removing contaminants from the environment, we can reduce exposure to harmful substances, protect delicate ecosystems, and improve overall air and water quality. Decontamination can also help to prevent the spread of diseases and pests.
In some cases, environmental decontamination may be required by law. For example, if a company produces hazardous waste, it may be required to clean up any contamination that results from its operations. In other cases, decontamination may be voluntary, such as when a property owner decides to clean up contamination on their land.
Environmental decontamination can be a complex and costly process. However, the benefits of decontamination are clear. By removing contaminants from the environment, we can protect human health and the environment, and improve the quality of life for all.

How can I ensure my home or business is properly decontaminated?

There are a number of ways to ensure your business or industrial estate is properly decontaminated. First, you should always contact a professional cleaning company that specialises in decontamination services. We have the experience and equipment necessary to safely and effectively clean your space.
Second, you should make sure to follow all recommended protocols for decontamination. This may include removing all food and water sources from the area, as well as sealing off any openings that could allow contaminants to enter.
Finally, you should regularly check for signs of contamination. If you see any evidence of mould or mildew, for example, you should take immediate action to clean and disinfect the affected area. By taking these steps, you can help protect yourself and your property from the dangers of contamination.

What are some common contaminants that may be found in indoor environments?

There are many potential contaminants that may be present in indoor environments. Some of the more common ones include
Mould spores
Animal dander
Chemicals (from cleaning products, off-gassing from building materials, etc.)
While not all of these contaminants are necessarily harmful, they can certainly cause discomfort or aggravate pre-existing conditions such as allergies or asthma. It is important to try to keep indoor spaces as clean and free of potential contaminants as possible. Regular vacuuming and dusting, using air purifiers, and avoiding the use of strong chemicals can help to create a healthier indoor environment.

How can I tell if my workplace has been contaminated?

If you suspect that your workplace may have been contaminated, there are some tell-tale signs to look for. First, check for any visible mould growth. Mould can be black, green, white, or brown and can appear fuzzy or slimy. If you see mould growing on any surface, it’s likely that the area is contaminated.
Another sign of contamination is a musty or earthy smell. This is often caused by mould or mildew and indicates that there is moisture present, which can lead to mould growth.
If you have noticed these signs, it’s important to have your workplace professionally tested as soon as possible. Contamination can cause serious health problems, so it’s vital to take action right away.

What are the risks associated with exposure to contaminated environments?

There are many risks associated with exposure to contaminated environments. Some of these risks are direct, while others are indirect. Direct risks include infections, poisonings, and injuries. Indirect risks include chronic illnesses, cancers, and reproductive problems.
Exposure to contaminated environments can also lead to mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. Additionally, people who are exposed to contaminated environments may have difficulty sleeping and concentrating
The best way to protect yourself from the risks associated with exposure to contaminated environments is to avoid them altogether. If you must enter a contaminated environment, be sure to take proper safety precautions. Wear protective clothing, including gloves, goggles, and a face mask.
