I started allt his back in may with peroxide in a sprayer watered down to 5% ish but it played havoc with nasal membranes-mine and my cleaners. The bleach isnt too bad, difficult to get a correct droplet size and as long as it smells "clean" we seem to get away with it. We do all surfaces, chairs toilets and hard toys.
Are you using this inside classrooms?

Been looking online and cant really find what I am looking for but would make cleaning outside equipment much quicker!

Re: Disinfecting a room using fogging or mist

Boy oh boy am I glad I retired 6 years ago. I can't imagine how difficult a C.T.'s job has become with all this Covid stuff. Also the reports of browbeating by the B.M.s and C.O.s..........the job certainly has taken a turn for the worst, by the sound of it. I have been told school I worked in appears to have a constant stream of new caretakers "passing through" and 1 only stayed for a day. -JawDropped.png- Also they are on their 4th B.M.
There seems to be a total lack of respect from the top table. Be brave folks and stay safe (and get any complaints on email) and boot them home to keep a copy....Take cars
