Proactive approach to cleaning and sanitisation in response to the Covid 19 crisis

The worldwide Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has people scrambling to protect themselves, their homes and businesses from potential contamination.

Halcyon offers a Covid-19 decontamination fogging service for businesses looking for professional micro-cleaning and infection control. Our state-of-the-art fogging machines distribute a fine mist of hospital-grade disinfectant that settles onto every surface.

We use Formula 429, which is proven effective against bacteria, fungi, mould and viruses, including coronaviruses. The process of fogging is quick and the premises is safe to return to just one hour after fogging, meaning you have minimal disruption and downtime.

The disinfectant remains active for three to four weeks, giving businesses peace of mind. In addition, Halcyon carries Professional Indemnity Insurance, which allows us to certify our work.

Businesses that have received a Halcyon Infection Control and Decontamination clean are issued with a certificate of completion to display to customers so that they can feel confident the premises has been professionally decontaminated.

What is Coronavirus?

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.

How does it spread?

Infectious diseases are commonly spread through the direct transfer of bacteria, viruses or other germs from one person to another. This can happen when an individual with the bacterium or virus touches, coughs or sneezes on someone or something. As scientists learn more about Coronavirus, they’re discovering it has the ability to linger on surfaces and remain infectious for a number of days. This is why proper micro-cleaning by fogging is becoming the preferred method to control and prevent infection in premises.

Our Service:

Micro-cleaning and decontamination by Fogging

We have specialist teams situated all over Ireland and Northern Ireland and can respond to emergency Covid-19 callouts

DISINFECTING CORONAVIRUS
Undeniably, the main attribute of effective disinfecting is the prolonged residual action of preventing viable colonies of micro-organisms from developing. Deep sanitising and disinfecting by thermal fogging of entire rooms is the most effective form of decontamination and infection control.

Fogging works by irreversibly immobilising bacteria, fungi and viruses both airborne and surface based, rendering them unable to replicate. Disinfecting the whole area including atmosphere, furnishings and surfaces, leaves a safe and decontaminated environment.

The pandemic lingo is to talk about ‘needing a deep clean’. The typical offering is teams of cleaners that move through a building wiping down surfaces, however this is open to human error, as cleaning by hand will inevitably mean some spots are missed. Fogging is a deep- cleaning process that takes the labour, time and risk of human error out of a hand-clean. It’s impossible to miss a spot as the mist is dispersed into the air, sanitising all surfaces, minimising the risk of disease and illness, destroying germs and ensuring all previously-infected areas are clean and free from bacteria and viruses.

The fogging cleaning method means you can reach pathogens not otherwise accessible to conventional cleaning. As a result of this there is no need to move furniture or equipment around for the area to be treated.
