Be Proactive & Prevent An Outbreak Before It Happens

Facilities with a high risk of contamination such as hospitals, universities, schools, and other public spaces can reduce the risk of transmission of the virus by being proactive in cleaning and disinfecting. If your facility had a recent exposure of 2019-nCoV, it is essential that proper decontamination is carried out before it is repopulated.

Our Procedures

Once exposed, the building should be evacuated as soon as possible. We use proper containment to isolate the suspected area to prevent the spread into other areas. Our environmental experts will then assess the area. A project-specific decontamination plan will then be created to address the specific need for each facility.

The management and the stakeholders will be kept informed at every step of the way. We have state of the art reporting systems that can automatically update on our progress.

 

 

A Little More Information About COVID-19

COVID 19 is short for Coronavirus disease 2019. The virus spreads similar to influenza, via respiratory droplets from coughing. Although the droplets are only suspended in the air for a short period of time, but they can stick to surfaces and – if similar to other coronaviruses- can survive and be contagious up to 9 days under room temperature.

Frequent Disinfection

Disinfection of surfaces is therefore recommended if a person exhibiting symptoms comes into contact with them. Increasing the frequency of cleaning in public places can help manage the spread of infection.

How Does The Virus Get Around?

Droplets carrying the virus can settle onto horizontal surfaces, which can then be transmitted to people via surface contact. Door handles, light switches, elevator switches, handrails, and escalator rails are also high-risk areas. The virus is believed to be able to survive and be contagious for up to 9 days at room temperature.
