COVID-19 is a serious threat to health, so cleanliness and hygiene are critical.
The current coronavirus outbreak causes COVID-19 which is a serious threat to health, so cleanliness and hygiene are critical. Specialist deep cleaning will significantly enhance regular cleaning schedules. The frequency of deep cleaning will be dictated by traffic. Responsible businesses and employers will book a deep clean when there has been a confirmed exposure to coronavirus. Whilst educational establishments have shut their doors to most students and staff, a deep clean may be needed to eradicate any traces of the virus before re-opening.
“No cleaning protocol is perfect,” according to Benjamin Lopman, Associate professor of epidemiology at Emory University in Atlanta. He adds that a strict cleaning regimen, combined with other measures like social distancing, “will act in concert, hopefully, in reducing the transmission of the coronavirus.”
Deep cleaning to prevent COVID-19 will use disinfection procedures that already exist to get rid of the common cold or flu viruses. Public health advice is similar for both businesses and individual households. Frequency of cleaning should increase, particularly on “high-touch” spots such as door handles and lift buttons. It is important that the correct disinfecting products are used as the action of cleaning alone does not deactivate the virus.

As well as soap and detergents, COVID-19 is sensitive to bleach, hydrogen peroxide and products that contain 60% or more alcohol.
Effective Cleaning Products For Coronavirus
Coronaviruses are encased in fatty envelopes. The good news is that soapy detergents that remove grease are highly effective against this virus. The application of detergents onto the outer envelope of the virus break it down and destroy the active virus contained within. This is why the regular 20-second hand washing routine is recommended by the World Health Organisation as a critical infection control measure. As a supplement to regular handwashing, it is important to also make hand sanitizer available between washes.
Common cleaning products are effective against the COVID-19 virus. As well as soap and detergents, it is sensitive to bleach, hydrogen peroxide and products that contain 60% or more alcohol. Natural products that are often used in cleaning like vinegar or tea tree oil are not effective against coronavirus.
As a new virus, it’s still unclear how long the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 can survive outside the body. However, a recent US study found it could last on stainless steel and plastic surfaces for up to three days. There are variables that could affect its length of survival. These factors are likely to include ambient temperature and air humidity. Since it is possible that the greater the exposure, the higher the probability of transmission of infection the safest assumption is that, without the correct cleaning, the virus can live for days and not hours on many surfaces.

Antiviral Bio-fogging is a very effective technique for eliminating pathogens such as coronavirus, norovirus and MRSA.
Antiviral bio-fogging is a very effective technique for eliminating pathogens such as coronavirus, norovirus and MRSA. Bio-fogging works by creating a dry mist of fine droplets in the atmosphere. As the droplets settle, all areas are sterilised including walls, ceilings, furnishings, carpets and floors. All products used should comply with health and safety regulations.
Many industries including transportation providers and gyms benefit from antiviral bio-fogging to control infections. Hard to reach germs from hands and coughing contaminate door handles, telephones, keyboards, desks and other equipment. Antiviral bio-fogging is a quick and effective method for controlling the spread of infection.
