BS EN 1276 is the European standard for the bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectants. To pass this standard, products must prove a germ kill rate of 99.999% with a 5 minutes of contact.

Realising the importance of slowing down the spread of a virus, we developed a service based on guidelines by Public Health England. It is suitable for all non-health care premises and can be used as a precautionary measure.

This type of virus control helps against spreading infection. It is carried out with a highly effective and independently certified virucidal cleaner that is used for infection control and eliminates dangerous viruses, microscopic bacteria, fungi, and protozoa that can cause disease.

This service is suitable for, schools, colleges, nursery’s, offices, public houses, restaurant’s, offices, food premises, and rental properties.

The treatment includes all surfaces such as hard floors, walls, cupboards, kitchen tops, tables and doors, as well as carpeting, furniture, desks, equipment, computers, door handles, control panels, etc. Overall, any highly touched area or surface.

Here is how we perform the service:

The technician fills the tank of a fogging machine with a disinfecting solution which is dispersed into the air in the form of microscopic droplets. This way, all surfaces within the space, even the most secluded areas, are evenly disinfected.

Disinfect vs Sanitise – The difference?

The main difference between disinfection and sanitisation is that the first process is designed to kill all harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi on surfaces, whereas the latter is associated with deep cleaning items and surfaces with a range of sanitising products that will remove dirt and germs, however, without the guarantee that all types of pathogens will be completely neutralised. In other words, using a said sanitiser will not necessarily kill 99.9% the virus, which causes Coronavirus, or eliminate certain bacteria, but it will only reduce several harmful micro-organisms.

Disinfecting

Disinfectants are designed to kill 99.9% all types of pathogens on a particular surface. The process is applied in medical facilities and labs, of course, in food production establishments and wherever there’s a need for increasing the safety of people in particular circumstances and environments. Still, we need to note here that depending on what the disinfectant contains, one particular product will be effective against a particular group of viruses or bacteria, but it may not be reliable against other types of pathogens.

Levels of disinfection

There are different levels of disinfection, based on the main type of substance used to make a particular product. For instance, alcohol-based disinfectants are classed as intermediate to high-level disinfectants, depending on the percentage of ethyl or isopropyl alcohol the product contains. Lipid-enveloped viruses like the coronavirus and various bacteria will be killed with an alcohol-based disinfectant (above 60%).

Intermediate-level disinfectants, such as bleach and other chlorine-based products, are also effective against many types of pathogens, including fungi, viruses, and bacteria. Oxidising agents like hydrogen peroxide are in the category of high-level disinfectants, along with aldehyde-based biocides. These are used for disinfecting medical equipment, for example, and can be applied against non-enveloped viruses (norovirus, rhinovirus), as well.

Low-level disinfectants can be in fact many types of all-purpose sanitisers that contain ammonium-based substances. These will have some antibacterial properties but will not be the first choice in the fight against fast-spreading viral diseases.
