What are the most effective methods in fighting coronavirus?
Since it arrived, it has felt a bit like coronavirus has taken over our lives. It affects almost everything we do from exercising at the gym to visiting relatives in the hospital and even simply going to work. However, there are steps we can take to limit the spread and take back a bit of control.
If you are in charge of somewhere where people visit or meet, one of the most effective things you can do in order to stop the spread of coronavirus is ensure you have thorough, effective cleaning in place.
Although this might sound a daunting prospect, we are here to offer guidance and help as you tackle this pandemic head-on.
How is coronavirus spread?
Coronavirus is not only spread via droplets when people cough or sneeze, but also through contact with contaminated surfaces. Social distancing and masks help take care of direct transmission but it’s important to also tackle contaminated surfaces.
High traffic touch-points (places or objects people touched often by different people e.g. door handles) are a great place to start when it comes to planning a cleaning regime. But, for peace of mind you could consider more thorough options such as office deep cleaning.
What kills coronavirus?
Coronavirus has an outer fatty molecule layer. If this layer is destroyed, the virus is killed. As soap or alcohol break down fat, killing it is in theory, quite a simple task. That’s why the government recommends regular hand washing with soap and using hand sanitiser if soap is unavailable.
Many conventional cleaning products are effective at killing coronavirus if used properly. However, soap and/or alcohol may not be the most practical options at your property. If you want a more belt-and-braces approach, we also use UV light and specially designed virucides when we help customers in their fight against coronavirus.
Not all cleaning products kill viruses. We have followed guidelines from Public Health England to select cleaning products and virucides, and use them in effective, safe ways to leave your property as virus-free as possible.
Office deep cleaning
It is really important that you do everything you can to protect people at your Southampton workplace from coronavirus. Office deep cleaning ensures peace of mind that you are offering better protection.
Office fogging tackles transmission via surface contact. It includes areas you may not automatically think of in a ‘normal’ cleaning regime. Carried out regularly this helps keep the risk of transmission as low as possible.
Fogging for COVID-19
If you are interested in coronavirus deep cleaning, fogging for COVID is a great option. This professional cleaning method kills 99.999% of bacteria, fungi and viruses, and reaches areas conventional cleaning can’t touch.
The specially designed cleaning liquid is atomised to create a fog. This is then sprayed throughout your property, binds to surfaces and disinfects on contact.
A real plus point of fogging for COVID is the great results with the bonus of being able to reoccupy your property in just a few hours.
UV light has long been used as a disinfectant. It works because UVC waves carry enough energy to break the bonds that hold together the DNA and RNA of viruses and bacteria.
There are real benefits to this method including that it is dry and can take on hard-to-reach areas. However, it is important that this method is carried out by a professional as there are many products claiming to be effective that are not.
