COVID-19 DEEP STEAM CLEANING
DEEP STEAM CLEAN including BACTERICIDE, & SANITISE TREATMENT
As we try to tackle the spread of COVID-19, we all need to work a little bit harder to ensure hygiene standards remain high. This is especially true if you know that you’ve come into contact with someone who has contracted the virus, in which case you may want to take a few extra steps to ensure your home remains as germ-free as possible. This is where a steam cleaner with our industrial strength deodoriser can help.
Our deodorisers are effective at eradicating enveloped viruses like COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). They have an active ingredient of a Quaternary Ammonium compound. This has proved to be highly effective at inactivating (we don’t say kill as the virus is not actually alive) any lipid style virus, of which SARS-CoV-2 is one.
Enveloped viruses like SARS-coV-2, which rely on a protective lipid coating, are the easiest type to deactivate. In contrast with many gastrointestinal viruses like norovirus which have a tough protein shell called capsid, viruses with this fatty wrapping are relatively vulnerable.
There are a few ways to burst this flimsy shell. Alcohol-based products disintegrate the protective lipids. Quaternary Ammonium disinfectants such as ours, attack protein and lipid strictures, thwarting the pathogen’s typical mode of infection. Bleach and other potent oxidizers swiftly break down a virus’s essential components.
For easy and effective treatment our deodorisers are applied applied by a fine mist spray or by using a fogger and left on the surface for at least ten minutes or longer to allow the product to work.
A recent study has suggested that COVID-19 can survive on surfaces, such as worktops or door handles, for up to three days.
The virus was detected on plastic and stainless steel for up to 72 hours after exposure and on cardboard for up to 24 hours. This shows just how careful we need to be that we’re keeping our homes extra clean to help prevent the virus spreading. And this is where a bit of steam power can help.
Heat at temperatures over 77 degrees C is the best way to destroy bacteria and viruses, and the temperature of steam is much higher than that.
