Coronavirus Testing & Air Treatment
Our fogging treatment attacks the virus, disrupting its external structure and the mechanism by which it enters a host cell, thereby rendering it inactive. The fog is also supplied with an electrostatic charge during the spraying process, causing it to be attracted and bound towards surfaces. This enhances coverage as it means the fog “wraps” around objects without the object needing the fog stream directed towards it from all angles. Once deposited, the treatment then provides a residual effect which will cause ongoing deactivation of further incidences of the virus on the surface. With the correct precautions, this residual effect can last up to four weeks after application. Treatment may be considered worthwhile, even in areas where presence of the virus is not confirmed or suspected, as a preventative measure on the basis of this residual effect.
We also provide a swab test specifically for Covid-19 presence via PCR amplification at an accredited laboratory. Testing is best directed towards high-frequency contact surfaces such as door handles and taps. One use for this might be surface transmission monitoring. For example, you may wish to have an idea of how frequently the agent is transferred to a high-contact area such as a communal door handle or a button dashboard in an elevator, and then to infer whether existing measures and advice to residents are sufficient. This could be done by repeat testing and cleaning of the area of interest throughout the day. For instant post-clean verification, we can also use the more general ATP hygiene test as a proxy.
