Research and studies into COVID-19, into how long the virus survives on surfaces, suggest that the virus may remain active on different surfaces from a few hours up to 3 days.
The government guidelines for washing hands and social distancing is the constant message we hear in the media every day. As we know, the virus transmits from breathing in contaminated aerosols from a cough or a sneeze, and these droplets also settle on surfaces. The virus travels mainly on the hands from one surface to another, eventually making its progress into the body, so surfaces must require frequent cleaning and sanitisation.
Using steam to remove microorganisms safely leaves the surface instantly clean and dry without leaving any biofilm residue left when using general disinfectants.
It is vital to keep all common high touch surfaces clean and sanitised in the workplace to reduce the risk of infection. When we keep our workplaces clean, we take pride in how they look, but actually, how clean are your light switches, door handles, workspaces, keyboards, chairs?
Suppose you use general cleaning products, bleaches, disinfectants as part of your daily cleaning regime. In that case, you need to adopt the right methods to ensure you are “invisibly” clean to remove germs and viruses effectively.
A straightforward method is to adapt to using a professional dry steam cleaner as part of your ongoing cleaning regime.
The key elements to using a Professional Dry Steam Cleaner are;
- Steam cleaning is effective at removing 99.99% of germs and viruses. (Including Coronavirus)
- Steam Cleaning creates a healthier, environmentally-friendly, sustainable workplace, thanks to using less harmful chemicals.
- Steam Cleaning will reduce your cleaning costs significantly against using cleaning chemicals and disinfectants.
We all accept that the world is changing in how to keep workplaces hygienically cleaner and safer, not just clean but ‘invisibly clean.”
The way to achieve this will never be a one size fits all solution, but adapting to a better way will be the best choice.
