Disinfection measures Covid-19
In this period of Covid-19 Coronavirus, cleaning buildings is a priority to ensure a healthy environment and to limit the spread of the virus.
How is disinfection carried out ?
Disinfection in houses, flats or workplaces is done either by cold fogging (ULV) or fumigation with aerosols (according to EN14476).
In both cases, we generate a virucidal mist that will spread in the air, remain in suspension and come down to the ground and will thus spread over all surfaces and corners in its field of action. In addition to disinfection by nebulisation, we can also carry out wiping of at-risk surfaces (door handles, switches, railings, tables, etc...).
The installation of footbaths is also a barrier measure approved by the WHO in the event of an epidemic or pandemic. We place them at the entrance of certain buildings undergoing a high passage or even successive entry and exit.
How long does disinfection take ?
The intervention time is relative to the surface to be treated and the methodology. However, in all cases, a ventilation period of one hour must be respected before the premises are reintegrated.
Do I have to renew the disinfection regularly ?
Disinfection is immediately effective, but once the premises are reoccupied by their occupants, they can be re-contaminated by individuals. It is therefore advisable to repeat the treatment as many times as necessary and to apply barrier gestures regularly.
- Disinfect hands with soap and water or a hydro-alcoholic solution
- Press or sneeze into your elbow or into a disposable handkerchief
- Avoid touching your face and limit human contact
- Leave your street shoes outside if possible or use a foot bath
