Is a Fogger the Same as an Electrostatic
There are many ways to disinfect and sanitize spaces. Some people prefer wipes, others
prefer aerosols, and others choose higher-end foggers or sprayers, especially when it comes

What is a Fogger?
Foggers are devices that, as their name indicates, generate fog. They are usually employed to

very handy at eliminating airborne pathogens and at disinfecting moisture-sensitive objects,
Foggers come in all shapes and sizes. Some are compact, some are large but mobile; others
are handheld and wireless, and others are wall-mounted. What they all have in common is

What is an Electrostatic Sprayer?
Electrostatic sprayers are devices used to apply sanitizers and disinfectants onto surfaces.

better coverage than traditional cleaning methods; but also because of their electricity-based
technology, which offer
