There are many advantages of using peroxide versus chlorine for disinfection. In healthcare and surface disinfection applications, Halosil International’s peroxide based disinfection products are EPA approved for fogging. By fogging versus spray and wiping, the product reaches every surface in a room whether visible or not and thus minimizes the impact of human labor inconsistencies. These products are effective, odor-free, economical, do not condense or corrode, have a long shelf life and are safe to use around sensitive equipment. Hydrogen peroxide decomposes into oxygen and water and is safe for people and the environment.
Chlorine bleach, while a powerful disinfectant, produces harmful and toxic disinfection by-products. Other issues with chlorinated products include strong odor and corrosion, making them unsuitable for fogging application.
