CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) & Infection Control - The Enviro Clean Process*
The COVID-19 disease and the coronavirus that causes it are huge news and spreading fast across the US. Fortunately Enviro Clean offers a designated virus decontamination service for businesses and institutions affected or at risk from infection. Our professional cleaning services use EPA approved plant-based disinfectants engineered to combat viruses and bacteria to cleanse deep and purge the viral loads that colonize interior surfaces. Disinfecting hazardous materials is our specialty. We have a leading track record of decontaminating interior spaces across New England, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
How can businesses and institutions stop the spread of infection?
It is important to follow the advice from your Department of Health and the CDC (Center for Disease Control). Staff and visitors should be encouraged to use good hygiene and wash their hands with alcohol-based liquid soap, or regular soap and hot water for 20 seconds. People should avoid shaking hands and stay at least 6 feet away from one another. Once there is a suspected case, self-isolation of that individual is recommended. When buildings are open after a suspected case, it is recommended to use a professional cleaning service that offers virus decontamination.
How long does COVID-19 live on surfaces?
It cannot be said with certainty how long coronavirus lives on a surface, but it seems to behave like other coronaviruses in the family. These viruses can live for hours or even days on a surface, before being transmitted via the hands to infect someone. The exact amount of time will depend on numerous variables, such as the type of substrate, the temperature, and humidity.
How Disinfectant Fogging Works
Disinfectant fogging works by dispersing small particles of disinfectant into the air and onto surfaces using an ultra-low-volume (ULV) fogger. It’s like using a sprayer on steroids to ensure the disinfectant gets into virtually all areas, crevices and corners to fight germs.
Disinfectant Fogging Services - Size Matters When it comes to disinfectant fogging, droplet size matters. Droplet sizes from sprayers and foggers are measured in microns. A micron is 1/1000 millimeter, or about 1/25,000 of an inch. For perspective, a human hair is about 100 microns in diameter. The smaller the droplet, the lighter it is, and the longer it floats in the air as the droplet does not have enough weight to overcome air resistance.
ULV fog droplets are suspend in the air for a longer amount of time than those applied by misting and spray. This allows for greater coverage and more opportunities for the disinfectant to come in contact with airborne pathogens and allergens. Smaller particles can penetrate deeper into fabrics and other materials which disinfects carpets cushions and curtains more thoroughly. The ULV foggers we use produce a droplet size between 5-50 microns. Droplets this size can stay airborne for up to several hours; all the while colliding with pathogens. Below are diagrams to illustrate the difference.
We provide CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) & Infection Control cleanup to a range of industries:
