Coronavirus Decontamination

What are Coronaviruses and what is COVID-19?

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses causing illnesses ranging from the common cold to pneumonia (a more severe lung infection). COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by a strain of coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. It was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization in March 2020 and has spread globally.

How does COVID-19 spread?

Current evidence suggests that transmission of COVID-19 occurs primarily through the respiratory droplets of infected people, which are expelled when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks or sings. These respiratory droplets can reach the eyes, nose or mouth of a susceptible person directly or indirectly (via contaminated surfaces), resulting in infection.

Airborne transmission of the virus can occur in health care settings where aerosol-generating procedures are performed. While there have been limited reports of airborne transmission outside of health care settings internationally, its role and extent are under further study. MOH will continue to monitor the evidence as it emerges.

To reduce the risk of spread, members of public must wear a mask outside the home and observe safe distancing. Individuals should also observe good hand hygiene and avoid crowded spaces if possible.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

The symptoms of COVID-19 infection are similar to that of an acute respiratory infection or pneumonia. These symptoms include fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, loss of taste or smell.

1. Virucidal Wipedown

Mold Medic Technicians will perform a Virucidal wipedown on all high-touch areas. This step helps to ensure high-risk “areas” are properly decontaminated.

2. Virucidal misting

Virucidal misting is very effective in providing total disinfection. This step helps to kill any Coronavirus that is potentially on surfaces, in the air, cracks & crevices, floors, and furnishings.

3. HEPA Air-scrubbing

The AlorAir PureAiro HEPA Pro 770 air scrubber is unbeatable when compared with competitor brands in removing mold spores, airborne miscellaneous debris at 0.3 microns in size which include pollen, plant spores, and pet dander. The Carbon filter captures the larger particles whilst the HEPA draws in the smaller particles.

4. UV-C Sterilisation

Ultraviolet-C (UV-C) irradiation has proven germicidal and fungicidal capabilities against mold, bacteria, viruses, and other harmful pathogens. All of which, when exposed to the UV-C waves will be sterilised.
