COVID-19 has an incredibly fast reproduction rate, with the droplets from coughing, sneezing and saliva droplets from human mouths spreading onto anything the droplets have contact with. When a person who has COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or talks, they may spread droplets containing the virus a short distance, which quickly settle on surrounding surfaces. This is called fomite transmission. Surfaces include door handles, computer equipment, touch screens and handrails. You may get infected by the virus if you touch those surfaces or objects and then touch your mouth, nose or eyes.
Research has found the new coronavirus can last up to three days on plastic and metal surfaces and cardboard for 24 hours. With this in mind, and no vaccine or specific treatment, the main advice to prevent COVID-19 is to practice stringent hygiene measures which include cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and objects that people frequently touch.
To help avoid cross infection frequent high-level cleaning must include basics such as regular handwashing with soap and water to cleaning high traffic areas and contact surfaces.
The simplest way to keep areas clean is washing walls, mopping floors, cleaning desks and workstations, door handles etc. with anti-bacterial spray. However, sometimes this is not sufficient and a thorough deep clean is needed, particularly in areas which have been quarantined.

How is COVID-19 transmitted?
According to current evidence, the COVID-19 virus is primarily transmitted between people through respiratory droplets and contact routes.
Human-to-human transmission is occurring extensively. Hence, precautions to prevent human-to-human transmission are appropriate for both suspected and confirmed cases. In addition to respiratory secretions, SARS-CoV-2 has been detected in blood, faeces and urine.
There are three simple actions we must all do to keep on protecting each other.
Wash hands keep washing your hands regularly.
Cover face wear a face covering in enclosed spaces.
Make space stay at least 2 metres apart - or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions.
Nichol Associates use powerful steam fogging machines that are able to sanitise and disinfect vast areas quickly without missing any surfaces.
We use a government approved virucidal germicide in our fogging machines. Although very powerful, it is 100% environmentally friendly and effective against a broad spectrum of viruses.
When in operation, our fogging machines produce large volumes of fine mist which lands on both hard and soft surfaces without causing any harm. This method ensures that every area of your premises is reached and every surface is properly sanitised.
