During the lockdown we have been working to procure specialist equipment and chemicals which are designed to be effective against Coronavirus.
We expect many aspects of the lockdown to remain in place at least in the medium term, with social distancing probably being among the last things to be lifted. Despite social distancing being adhered to when employees are sitting at their desk, there are many areas of a workplace which are shared spaces and therefore pose a risk of infection. We understand these will require extra attention and disinfectant measures to be introduced and maintained.
To prepare for this we have launched an innovative disinfecting service using a system called bio-misting (known as fogging). This state-of-the-art system gives off a very fine vaporised mist, allowing microscopic droplets of the virucide to reach even the most secluded areas and surfaces not accessible by a cloth, and as these vaporised particles of chemical land, they start killing the virus and any harmful pathogens within seconds. Within an hour, the droplets will air dry on their own leaving all surfaces disinfected and your premises can then be entered again.
The chemical works on all surfaces and will protect for up to 30 days with one application, during this period surfaces can be cleaned with either chemicals or just water - the surface protector remains in place and will not wash off.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is this cleaning service effective against COVID-19?
A: Yes - The disinfection treatments we use meet EN 14476:2103 + A2:2109 standards and is therefore effective against all Coronaviruses including the SARS-CoV-2 strain.
Q: Is Virucide harmful to surfaces?
A: Virucide will not deteriorate, damage or harm common surfaces such as countertops, worksurfaces, upholstery, wood floors, carpet or painted walls. We may spot delicate items and perform alternative cleaning techniques if required.
Q: Does Virucide fogging cause damage to electronics?
A: Virucide does not damage electronics because the mist produced is extremely fine, yet effective. You will not have to remove computers, monitors or the like from the premises before fogging.
Q: What is the waiting period before we can access the property or vehicle after a decontamination service?
A: Wait at least 1 hour before returning.
Q: Can you provide RAMS and COSHH?
A: Yes - on request we can supply a risk assessment, method statement and COSHH assessment.
Q: Do you provide a certificate after cleaning?
A: Yes - on completion we will send a proof of cleaning certificate to you with your company name on it, an example is attached.
Q: How do we prepare for the service?
A: All premises must be vacated of all people, all electrical equipment should be turned off and all fire alarms MUST be switched off.
