Covid-19 Cleaning and Decontamination: Understanding the Risks

COVID-19 cleaning and disinfection

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) the infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus has affected people in many countries.

In any environment where there has been a known case of COVID-19 infection, it is vital to have the area safely cleaned, decontaminated and sanitised. In such cases, it is best to hire professionals for Covid-19 Cleaning and Decontamination services.

Who is at risk of contracting COVID-19?

Most people who are infected with coronavirus will either experience mild symptoms or be completely asymptomatic. Unfortunately, some persons can become seriously ill and require medical attention.

Elderly persons and people with pre-existing or underlying medical conditions are more at risk. Those who are more likely to develop serious illness include persons with chronic respiratory disease, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease.

When is COVID-19 cleaning and disinfection required?

A professional Covid-19 cleaning is required immediately in the following situations:

  • areas where there has been potential exposure to an infected person,
  • isolation areas following an infection with COVID-19,
  • quarantine areas where an infected person is receiving medical treatment.

Covid-19 Cleaning and Decontamination can also be done as a safety and preventive measure in homes, commercial properties, industries, healthcare and other facilities.

How does COVID-19 spread?

The virus that causes COVID-19 is known to spread via respiratory droplets generated when people affected with COVID-19 infection cough or sneeze. These droplets can then infect people who are in close proximity.

The droplets can also settle on and contaminate surrounding surfaces. This is how other people can pick the virus up.

Crowded and enclosed areas with lack of ventilation, as well as surfaces that are frequently touched by hands are likely to be easily contaminated. Particularly cleaning and disinfecting hard surfaces, high contact and high traffic areas can reduce the risk of infection.
