Nichol Associates Ltd have announced that they can now offer a deep cleaning and service offering specialist Coronavirus sanitisation service for all premises having suffered a confirmed case of COVID-19 or who would like to take precautionary measures.

COVID-19 has an incredibly fast reproduction rate, with droplets from coughing, sneezing and saliva droplets from human mouths spreading onto any surface the droplets have contact with. When a person who has COVID-19 sneezes, coughs or talks, they may spread droplets containing the virus a short distance, which quickly settle on surrounding surfaces. This is called fomite transmission. Surfaces include door handles, computer equipment, touch screens and handrails amongst many other surfaces. You may get infected with the virus if you touch those surfaces or objects and then touch your mouth, nose or eyes.

Research has found the new coronavirus can last up to three days on plastic and metal surfaces and cardboard for 24 hours. With this in mind, and no vaccine or specific treatment, the main advice to prevent COVID-19 spreading is to practise stringent hygiene measures which include cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and objects that people frequently touch.

The simplest way to keep areas clean is by washing walls, mopping floors, cleaning desks and workstations, door handles etc. with anti-bacterial spray. However this may not be not sufficient and a thorough deep clean is needed, particularly in areas that have been quarantined.

The most effective way to deep clean a whole area is to use a method called Fogging.

Our specialist team use antivirul disinfectant solution and cleaning methods which cleans and sanitises large areas quickly and effectively. It can kill off the virus and other biological agents in the air and on surfaces. Fogging involves spraying a fine mist from a spray gun which is then left to penetrate surfaces and then evaporates.

Our team use specialist personal protective equipment and respiratory protective equipment and have the full use of a dedicated decontamination unit.

The product is safe to use on equipment such as printers and computers etc. as the mist is incredibly fine but effective in penetrating all areas to kill off the virus.

The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital if you have any of these symptoms. Get a test to check if you have coronavirus and stay home until you get your result.
