During these difficult times, our homes may need to be decontaminated to protect our families and ourselves from the spread of COVID-19.
Particles of the coronavirus are spread through droplets coughed or sneezed by those carrying the virus. These droplets then spread out and settle on surfaces and objects, where they can remain dangerous for up to several days.
If someone in a household has a confirmed or suspected case, decontamination can rid a home of any remaining particles.
Doing so will help to safeguard homes and prevent others from contracting the virus. Decontamination can also act as a method of containing the virus until the self-isolation period has passed.
Decontaminating a home is also an excellent precautionary method against the spread of COVID-19.
It is a service which can be especially useful for key workers and those who still leave their homes regularly, such as NHS and care workers or volunteers.
Decontaminating can allow some to no longer fear bringing particles of the virus into their home, whether merely for peace of mind or to protect other members of their household.
Thoroughly sanitising a home by hand can be a long and challenging task; lots of rooms and hard to reach areas to regularly clean. Decontamination services can not only sanitise an entire home within a day but can reach areas hand cleaning can not.
The method of decontamination allows it to penetrate deep into surfaces and different materials which provides a much deeper clean than wiping down surfaces with a shop-bought cleaner.
Decontamination can help ensure a safer environment for those who may be more vulnerable to COVID-19, such as the sick, elderly or those with pre-existing medical conditions.
