Avolution Cleaning Services
Avolution Cleaning Services is adding an additional step of ultraviolet light (UV-C at 254 nm) to their standard deep cleaning services.
UV-C light is a proven technology when it comes to reducing viruses, bacteria, and other harmful microorganisms that pose a risk to human health. The use of ultraviolet (UV) light is well established for water treatment, air disinfection, surface and food decontamination. For many years, UV germicidal lamps have been used to disinfect of air and surfaces within hospitals, care homes, and laboratories where hygiene and cleanliness are of utmost importance. In light of the current Coronavirus outbreak, UV is just one of the many technologies available and being utilised to help reduce and control the spread.
The UV lamp used in our sanitation can result in > 90% reduction in Coronavirus from just 2 seconds exposure, according to the manufacturer.
We are not alone in adopting UV as a sanitation step. UV has been used in China to disinfect buses (https://www.scmp.com/video/china/3075171/shanghai-introduces-ultraviolet-light-disinfect-public-buses). A recent publication has proposed using UV to disinfect masks during the Covid-19 crisis. (N95 masks placed within a Biosafety Cabinets at the manufacturer’s reported fluence of 100 µWcm−2 should be effectively sanitized for reuse after approximately 15-20 minutes per side according to Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine https://doi.org/10.1101/2020.03.25.20043489 ).
Our three step decontamination process:
- The first stage of the cleaning is to clean down everything using a suitable anti-bacterial solution removing as many traces of the virus as possible.
- All ‘high-touch’ surfaces will be treated with a hand held UV-C germicidal lamp for at least 2 seconds.
- Fogging with a sanitizer will be used after this step especially if there are areas that cannot be reached, or too many small items (such as toys, products, tools) that cannot be cleaned well enough by hand. Thirdly if food items are present the UV light machine can be used.
Whether it's a public space like a surgery, washroom or waiting room, or a staff zone like an office, the need for thorough cleaning has never been more important than right now.
Anywhere that can be touched could present a problem, and your customers/visitors/staff will be reassured knowing that they are in a clean environment.
We've got the equipment, the know-how and the capacity to help you.
