Aside from the obvious need to kill the Covid-19 Virus and other Bacteria in Healthcare facilities, many more Business such as Offices, Hotels and Businesses that house many hundreds or even thousands of occupants are turning to technology to assist in the fight against this pandemic.
Many people will have seen the Images in China of people in White suits spraying any available surface with chemicals. In fact they are using whats know as Full Fogging and its what we recommend as part of our Building Deep Clean & Sanitisation Process.
Here at Polyteck we are using a combination of different technologies to assist us in ensuring that the Buildings we work in and occupy are safe for us to use and return to. In addition to the full fogging Sanitisation process detailed below there are also some other well established fixed systems that can retrofit into existing Ventilation/air distribution systems. You can find out about these here
Building Deep Clean & Sanitisation Process
Our sanitisation process includes a full V1 Virucidal sanitising to all surfaces, focusing on touch points including equipment, furniture, doors, handles, switches, buttons, floors, kitchens and toilets etc. depending on your requirements.
We follow our sanitisation process with a full fogging process using a powerful germicide and sanitiser to keep your room sterilised for up to 7 days. The sprayed product produces a mist to ensure appropriate dwell time and as it is fogged, it feels the air, envelops furnishings and clings to surfaces resulting in a thorough application which does not need to be wiped off or hand cleaned.
Each specialist clean is followed up with a full report, including supporting photos detailing the surfaces and areas covered, when they were cleaned and who b.y.
Personal Protective Equipment – (PPE)
• The minimum PPE required to be worn for decontaminating an area where a possible or confirmed case has been includes a full protective body suit, face masks, disposable gloves and disposable overshoes. Hands should be washed thoroughly with soap and water after all PPE has been removed.
• If a risk assessment of the setting indicates that a higher level of contamination may be present (for example where unwell individuals have slept such as a hotel room or boarding school dormitory) or there is visible contamination with body fluids, then the need for additional PPE such as a full-face visor should be considered. The local Health Protection Team can advise on this.
• Most other settings where the person has spent shorter periods of time (such as a waiting room, office space, restaurants, gyms) are likely to have lower levels of contamination and therefore the risk of onward transmission of infection will be lower
Cleaning and Disinfection
Public areas where a symptomatic individual has passed through and spent minimal time in (such as corridors) but which are not visibly contaminated with body fluids can be cleaned as directed by any existing workplace risk assessment or manufacturer’s instructions on the safe use of their cleaning products.
All surfaces that the symptomatic person has come into contact with must be cleaned and disinfected, including:
• Objects which are visibly contaminated with body fluids.
• All potentially contaminated high-contact areas such as bathrooms, door handles, telephones, grab rails in corridors and stairwells.
• Use disposable cloths or paper roll and disposable mop heads, to clean and disinfect all hard surfaces, floors, chairs or door handles and sanitary fittings in the room, following one of the two options below:
• Use either a combined detergent disinfectant solution at a dilution of 1000 parts per million available chlorine.
• A household detergent followed by disinfection (1000 ppm av.cl.). Follow manufacturer’s instructions for dilution, application and contact times for all detergents and disinfectants.
• If an alternative disinfectant is used within the organisation, this should be checked and ensure that it is effective against enveloped viruses.
Avoid creating splashes and spray when cleaning. Any cloths and mop heads used must be disposed of and should be put into the correct waste bags as outlined below under the waste section.
When items cannot be cleaned using detergents or laundered, for example upholstered furniture and mattresses, steam cleaning may be used.
Spillages of blood and body fluids should be managed in accordance with the organisations spillage policy, before cleaning and disinfection. If any items are heavily contaminated with body fluids and cannot be appropriately cleaned, consider discarding. Permission to do discard items should be received from the owner prior to removing.
If an area can be kept closed and secure for 72 hours, wait until this time for cleaning, as the amount of virus contamination will have decreased significantly. The area can then be cleaned as directed by any existing workplace risk assessment or manufacturer’s instructions on the safe use of their cleaning products.
Waste from possible cases and cleaning of areas where possible cases have been (including disposable cloths, tissues, and masks if worn) should be put in a plastic rubbish bag and tied when full. The plastic bag should then be placed in a second bin bag and tied. It should be put in a suitable and secure place and marked for storage until the individual’s test results are known. Children, pets, pests etc. should not be able to access this place. Waste should NOT be left unsupervised on the pavement awaiting collection.
