Coronavirus Prevention Electrostatic Cleaning System
Established in 2002, ViruClean has grown to become the UK's largest independent Outbreak Prevention Specialists. We currently service a portfolio of over 1000 clients, from smaller independent business like ourselves, to larger Blue Chip companies such as Tesco & JP Morgan. As a result, we are more than capable of providing an individual and tailored service to suit all requirements.
We service the majority of industries but specialise in the Education, Hospitality, Leisure and Professional sectors. There are two main sides to what we do; one is general disinfection to maintain hygiene standards. The other is infection outbreak prevention from basic sickness bugs in nursery's, to the more serious such as Covid-19 (Coronavirus).
With the global outbreak of Coronavirus and the rise in awareness of communicable diseases, workplace cleanliness is high in the public consciousness at the moment.
Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans.
People can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus. The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person.
Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. People can also catch COVID-19 if they breathe in droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs out or exhales droplets.
Coronavirus is believed to last up to 9 days on certain surfaces in cool dry conditions. This means that a single infected individual can go on to spread to the virus to others long after they have been isolated. Viruclean's application of viricidal disinfecta nts via patented electrostatic sprayer can solve this with both ease and minimal disruption to your business.
Electrostatics is the process of adding an electrical charge to the liquid droplets when they are sprayed. This makes the droplet electrically stronger than the surface or the item being treated. Just like magnets, they are drawn to each other and attach when one surface is more positively charged than the other.
This is important because liquid agents work best when they are given an opportunity to electrically attach to a su rface. Treating three dimensional surfaces effectively is generally not possible without leveraging a liquid adhesion technology like electrostatics.
The unique technology of the system we use enables the electrical charge to be applied inside the droplet instead of attaching it to the outside of the droplet, like many other electrostatic sprayers do. This enables the droplets to keep their charge for longer and ensures that we get the full effect of the electrostatic technology; providing your environment with an even and full disinfection.
The science of electrostatics is only one element of better disinfection management. We must take into consideration the environment where disinfection is required; identify the appropriate chemical for that environment, and determine the correct method of application. Failure to do so could result in the disinfection process being ineffective and/or damage to the areas being treated.
It is for the above reason that this system should only be applied by a trained professional, using the correct cleaning agents to provide the required cleaning effect in a safe manor.
Benefits Of Electrostatic Cleaning:
Unlike traditional cleaning by hand, electrostatic application provides far wider coverage and a more thorough disinfection. When we spray our product that is charged with electrostatics, the solution will envelop the target. This means it is far harder to miss any areas; this is key when disinfecting an area that has been subjected to a virus. Any untouched areas from a manual clean could still harbour the virus making all efforts worthless.
With the application of our water-based solution through the electrostatic sprayer, there is no need to touch/wipe the surface(s). This means equipment and possessions do not need to be touched during our process.
Correct Dwell Time
Most people will not realise that for disinfectants to be effective, they require a certain contact dwell time with the su rface in order to kill the bacteria. This time depends upon several factors and the product being used. Simply spraying and wiping a surface immediately will often not fully kill the bacteria. Our system leaves the disinfectant on the surface until dry, providing the correct minimal dwell time to do the job.
The electrostatic positive charge inserted into the droplet in our system (unlike any other electrostatic application) enables the droplet to adhere itself to the surface via the cationic charge. As the droplets hit the surface, they create an even spread because they hold their cationic charge for approximately 2 -3 seconds therefore not creating drips, as two positive charges will repel from each other.
Efficiency Of ViruClean's Disinfectant Against Coronavirus
Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome. ViruClean's preferred disinfectant has been tested against Adenovirus and Murine norovirus in accordance with EN14476, the European standard for demonstrating viricidal activity of a disinfectant, against the enveloped Vaccinia virus. According to EN14476:2013 + A2:2019, testing the efficacy of a disinfectant against Adenovirus and Murine norovirus allows the product to claim efficacy against enveloped viruses including Coronavirus, Influenza virus, Hepatitis B and C and Human Immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
Why Choose ViruClean?
- Superior Product
Our specially developed disinfectant provides the ability to kill Coronavirus, while at the same time being safe for use in enclosed environments over all surface types. The chemical is water-based and PH Neutral; unlike many in this field that are a strong Alkaline, close to that of bleach.
- Unique System
The unique technology of the system we use makes our type of disinfection far more efficient and thorough than anyone could possibly achieve with traditional cleaning by hand.
- Vast Experience
Established in 2002, the average working experience of our operatives exceeds 5 years. This makes our team one of the most experienced in the field. This provides us with an outstanding ability to identify and correctly administer the necessary disinfection needed to contain and prevent outbreaks.
- High Man Power
Unlike anyone else we have the capacity to cover in excess of 1 million sqft in a day; meaning we can treat most buildings in 24 hours.
- Zero Disruption
We work out of hours unless specified by you. Couple that with the fact our cleaning system is touchless; and we can carry out a thorough disinfection without the majority of people even knowing we have been in.
- Lasting Effect
Unlike regular disinfectants the chemical we use not only kills at point of contact but continues to work after application. This reduces the chance of viruses and bacteria staying on surfaces. Studies show chemicals containing quaternary ammonium chloride to reduce bacteria build up to 99% for 8 weeks. Many chemicals containing this are strong Alkaline like bleach; ours however is PH neutral making it not only extremely effective, but safe.
- A Company You Can Trust
We service a regular portfolio of over 1000 Clients across England, Wales & Scotland.
