Using a fogger is an excellent way to apply Nok-Out or SNiPER very efficiently.  It is especially useful when you want to apply over large areas – such as your basement, or the whole of your house. A fogger is simply an electric sprayer. A good one will be adjustable and you can  dial the droplet size up or down. Using the smallest setting, the droplets are around 15 microns across and are nearly invisible they are so small. At this size, the airborne droplets can float around on the air currents in a room.  When dialing in the larger droplet size, the volume of spray is increased and so it sprays out much greater quantity of liquid.  The larger size droplets will not ‘float’ in the air as long as the smaller size droplets.  Foggers are tools used by professionals because they allow you to be  efficient and they are fast.  Many consumers use them also, for the same reasons.

If your basement has a tendency to get a little damp at times, a fogger is a great way to spread a very thin coat of Nok-Out or SNiPER very evenly over large areas.  It is quick and takes only a few minutes to ‘fog’ large areas.  Being able to spray such a thin coat makes it efficient, because you don’t use much of the spray, so it can help you be efficient as well as effective.

How to use a fogger

You can ‘paint’ the walls and other surfaces you would like to spray, treating the fogger as if it were a ‘paint sprayer’.  A larger droplet size makes this very quick.  Or you can spray the air until the atmosphere becomes saturated with moisture. At this point, the excess moisture will begin to condense onto literally every surface in the room. When you start spraying the air, the little droplets will also come in contact with mold spores, dust and dander and will fall to the ground where they can be vacuumed up easily.  In this way, you can lay down an extremely thin layer of Nok-Out or SNiPER onto literally every surface of a room.  This is perfect for some things, such as when you are trying to get rid of smoke odor, which, as you know, get’s onto every surface in a room.  Fogging a smokers room is the perfect way to get Nok-Out or SNiPER to come into direct contact with residue from smoke, whether it is fire or tobacco.

When ‘painting’ surfaces using a fogger, the idea is to spray enough that the surface gets wet.  But not so much that the liquid begins to run down the wall, or that puddles form on horizontal surfaces.  In this way, you can be most efficient in your use of Nok-Out or SNiPER.  This efficiency and ease is what using a fogger is all about.

At Nokout.com, we like the ‘Fogmaster Jr’ and keep them in stock. It is available here: https://www.nokout.com/Fogmaster-Jr.html. A more professional fogger is the RL Flo Master 1035B.  Foggers are very nice tools, but they are expensive. Maybe you only have a one-off need for this type of application. In this case, you could consider using a ‘vaporizer’ or room humidifier or a pump up atomizing sprayer, etc., which will be much slower, but can also put Nok-Out or SNiPER in vapor form into the air. It is really slow though, and if time is an issue, may not be a good alternative. See: https://www.nokout.com/Vaporizer-How-to-use.html to see if this may be right for you.

If you decide you need a fogger, be sure that the one you get is NOT a ‘thermal’ fogger because the high heat will damage and reduce the effectiveness of Nok-Out or SNiPER.
