The Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCov) is from the same family of viruses as the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).
As with other respiratory illnesses, infection with 2019-nCoV can cause mild symptoms including a sore throat, runny nose, cough, and fever. It can be more severe for some individuals and can lead to pneumonia or breathing difficulties.
More rarely, the disease can be fatal. People with pre-existing conditions such as heart disease and diabetes along with older people are susceptible to becoming severely ill with the virus.
- Fever, cough, shortness of breath or breathing difficulties
- Pneumonia, kidney failure and even death (severe cases)
- The incubation period is 2-14 days.
How its spreads
- The air by coughing and sneezing
- Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands
- Touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands
- Rarely, fecal contamination
Due to the microscopic sizes of these fungi, bacteria, and viruses, physically cleaning the premises alone is insufficient in ridding them completely, so much that more than 10-30% of these microbes still remain.
By using the latest space treatment technology and methods, we are able to eradicate these particles on any exposed surface at a microscopic level, ensuring optimal cleanliness of the spaces and promoting wellness for the occupants.
More than 99.99% of influenza A virus particles attached to a plastic carrier were inactivated by exposure to 10 ppm ( V/V ) – ozone gas for 210 min at 23 to 29 degrees and a relative humidity of 64 to 65%. When the virus was exposed to 20 ppm ( V/V ) – ozone gas for 150 min, more than 99.999% was inactivated.
Our 3rd generation custom built ozone machine gives out 250g-300g/h (regular machines give out 2-5g/h) of ozone power to kill virus, bacteria and mold. It leaves no chemical residue during the process and there is no known viral resistance against ozone.More on ozone treatment
Wavelengths in the UV-C range are particularly damaging to bacteria and virus because they are absorbed by proteins, RNA, and DNA.
UVGI machine uses 4 tubes of 30W 254nm wavelength of germicidal power to help neutralize novel coronavirus, bacteria and mold. Leaves no chemical residual during the whole process which makes it ideal in moisture sensitive areas. Its standing design gives a wide coverage of surfaces and can be moved easily around the premise to sterilize not only the surfaces but air as well.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3298127/
Choosing the right equipment for the task is a very important component of disinfection. Many fail to realise the importance of chemical contact time for virus elimination. Droplets which are too fine will evaporate too fast which makes the treatment useless and if it’s too wet it might damage equipment in the premise.
Our Chemical Atomizer is battery powered and light with a long throw distance which reduces fatigue and allows us to treat areas limited by power supply. It also allows us to customize the droplet size to match the right chemicals and environment to ensure maximum contact time to kill the virus.
Quat and Hydrogen Peroxide based chemicals are specifically selected, tested, and proven with lab reports to show that that not only it kills novel coronavirus, but also bacteria and mold. It gives a wide spectrum kill ability which does not leave any odor and is non-corrosive. It is safe and 100% biodegradable and its made to be used in offices, homes, hospitals and childcare centres.
These chemicals are used widely around the world for disinfection especially in hospitalshttps://www.betelgeux.es/images/files/Externos/09_08_3-listado_IAT_eficaces_H1N1.pdf
Proper disinfection of our equipment and our technicians are done before removing our decontamination suits and discarding them. Reusable equipment such as our machines and body of the face mask are thoroughly sterilized and wrapped up before bringing back to our warehouse to be placed in our decontamination chamber. This is to ensure there is no cross contamination between jobs and the safety of our teams are paramount.
