Precautionary disinfection during Covid-19.
As countries around the world are moving through different phases of the COVID-19 infection, businesses and organizations need to protect their staff, customers, buildings, machinery, equipment, and goods from the risks of infection and contamination.
If you’re maintaining vital services or preparing for opening or re-starting business, a high level of hygiene is now recognized as essential to contain the disease and allow operations or activities to return to normal.
We have a range of disinfection services worldwide to help all business sectors, including retail, manufacturing, transport, education, hospitality, leisure, and healthcare, to provide a clean and safe environment for normal operations.
Cleaning, disinfection, and sterilization provide increasing levels of protection from pathogenic microorganisms that contaminate surfaces.
Cleaning is the removal of dirt, which can be an organic or inorganic material, from surfaces using water and detergents. It doesn’t kill microorganisms but physically removes them from the surface, lowering their number and reducing the risk of infection.
Thorough cleaning is essential before disinfection and sterilization as any material that’s on surfaces can reduce the effectiveness of the procedures and result in microorganisms being left on surfaces.
Disinfection is a process to eliminate all or most pathogenic microorganisms, usually using a solution of an active chemical certified to be effective against the target pathogens. Chemicals have a different set of pathogens and require different times to be effective. So it’s important for the operators to fully understand what to use and how to use the disinfectant to make the surfaces safe.
Sterilization is a process to destroy all microorganisms on a surface or in a fluid to prevent the transmission of pathogens, usually for medical purposes. Sterilization can be achieved by physical methods, such as heat or steam, or by using chemicals with a high level of germicidal activity, such as hydrogen peroxide or ethylene oxide.
Various factors can affect the efficacy of disinfection and sterilization, including:
? effectiveness of the cleaning done beforehand
? the amount of organic and inorganic material present
? type and level of microbial contamination
? physical nature of the object being treated, such as complex shapes and surfaces
? presence of biofilms
? temperature and pH of the disinfection process
Achieving effective disinfection requires suitable training of the operators to guarantee it’s done properly.
