Coronavirus Disease COVID-19
In December 2019, a new respiratory disease called Coronavirus Disease 2019 COVID-19 was detected in China. The COVID-19 virus is caused by a virus (SARS-CoV-2) that is part of a large family of viruses called coronaviruses. Coronavirus spreads easily and can cause severe lower respiratory infections for the elderly or anyone suffering ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome).
Clean Air Capability and Resources
Clean Air Australia are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and we can provide an emergency response with 24 highly trained technicians. We have prepared for deep cleaning procedures with stocks of Personal Protective Equipment and chemistry to allow for a fast response to all cleaning requirements. With over 25 years of experience in the cleaning and treatment of air conditioning systems as well as rooms and surfaces allows us to provide all of the cleaning services that may be required. The regions we service are FNQ, SEQ, GC and NSW.
The procedures offered aim to “break the chain” in further surface to surface or surface to person cross-infection. We achieve this using well understood effective deep cleaning, sanitising, disinfecting, sterilisation and surface treatments. Successful disinfection and decontamination of a building that has had a recent outbreak of coronavirus, requires a thorough understanding of that virus. The newest species of COVID-19 is still being researched for its means of transmission and best disinfection and decontamination procedures. Understanding COVID-19 allows us to create better coronavirus disinfection and decontamination protocols, use better chemicals, which ultimately allows for more successful decontamination and prevents contamination in the first place. Until further information is produced, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has directed cruise ships, hospitals, schools, and businesses to rely on interim guidance for disinfection, based on the past successful decontamination techniques used for previous strains of viruses.
