Breaking the infection cycle… Re Covid -19 disinfection 30-day treatment.

We are specialising in high level disinfection of buildings. The system is micro particle fogging, a very fine mist applied in a dry state. Safe with computers, paper and electronics. Safe and nontoxic in kitchens and dining areas. We are supported with COSHH and laboratory performance data for the products and procedures used.

During the application we open commonly used items that are easily accessible like fridges, microwaves, key & broom cupboards to expose Covid to the disinfection. Some dust disruption will be caused by the power of the fogging. We use two machines, a revolving standing unit and a mobile unit to ensure complete access and speed of application. This strategy ensures a comprehensive aerosol coverage and miniscule detail coverage. With 2 units working simultaneously we can cover the area of a tennis court in an hour, it typically takes between 1 to 3 hours to complete a treatment. If well ventilated the building can be re-entered in 1 hour. Charged at £100 (plus VAT) per hour per unit working inclusive of materials and 7 days a week call out. To put it in perspective traditional hand cleaning would take 10 times longer and is still not as comprehensive.

The product we use (Sterizar) will kill Covid 19 immediately on contact and will continue to work on non-porous surfaces for up to 30 days. After our treatment normal Covid precautions and cleaning routines need to be observed as friction and handling will wipe off the treatment.
We are currently treating actual instances of Covid and doing preventive treatments in schools, doctor’s surgeries, banks, gyms, laboratories, offices, places of worship, farms, pubs and hotels.
To help break the chain of infection we are offering high level disinfection to small shops and barber shops for as little as £20 for a room. mob O7795242173
