"For COVID-19, it is essential that engineering strategies target transmission in occupied rooms—more so than in the ventilation system, given the paucity of evidence of recirculated virus. Barriers that need to be addressed include increased public and professional awareness of how it works, its safety and efficacy". Edward A. Nardell. Division of Global Health Equity, Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. Air Disinfection for Airborne Infection Control with a Focus on COVID-19: Why Germicidal UV is Essential.Photochemistry and Photobiology, 2021, 97: 493–497
Aerosol transmission is now widely accepted as the principal way that COVID-19 is spread, as has the importance of natural and mechanical ventilation.
For airborne infections, the most common way to reduce risk indoors is dilution and removal of infectious particles in room air through ventilation.
Air disinfection must occur in the same room occupied by an infectious source and persons at risk of infection.
The most common and growing type of air conditioning, ductless or split systems, pro-vide no outside air ventilation. The result of closing windows and turning on ductless air conditioning is a steep rise in re-breathed air fraction, that is the fraction of a breath recently exhaled by others, and a risk of airborne infection.
Apart from natural and mechanical ventilation, only two prac-tical and proven methods of supplemental air disinfection exist:upper room germicidal ultraviolet fixtures, and room air cleaners (using filters, UV or other means of disinfection).
Portable room air cleaners seem like a simple solution, and are being widely marketed for COVID-19, but their clean air delivery rate is low and depending on room volume is an inconsequential protection against most airborne infections.
According to a new science brief from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the risk of catching COVID-19 by touching a contaminated surface is considered to be low.
Normal routine cleaning with soap and water lowers the risk of spreading COVID-19 by removing germs and dirt from surfaces. In most situations, cleaning is enough to reduce risk.
Is recommended to use EPA-Registered Disinfectants According to Label Directions.
Be Careful Using Disinfectants Around People with Asthma
Be Careful with Fogging, Fumigating, and Wide-Area or Electrostatic Spraying.
Don’t Ask Children or Students to Apply Disinfectants.
If a product says that it kills SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), but it doesn’t have an EPA registration number, it may not be safe or efective. Federal law requires disinfectants to be registered with EPA.
WE CAN HELP
We use the EPA recommended protocol to desinfect surfaces and most importanly, the air you breath.
We evaluate your particular situation and plan an effective way to fully sanitize your commercial or residential property.
Cleaning includes the HVAC system and all surfaces in contact with people or animals.
We use advanced technology to kill the fungus, clean the afected area and dispose of the contaminants.
The methods we use may include UV light, Ozone, Photo Catalytic Oxidation, HEPA filtration, etc.
We can provide a yearly service contract that includes monitoring and remediation if a risk of contamination arises.
