The Current COVID-19 Coronavirus Outbreak
Commercial virus decontamination entails the physical cleaning and disinfecting contaminated areas. The decontamination process is determined by the type of virus and protocol for the project. However, to effectively clean your workplace, consider hiring an experienced industrial hygienist who specializes in virus decontamination. Numerous factors are considered when offering biohazard decontamination services. Some of these factors include:
- Incubation period
- The lifecycle of the virus
- Virus transmission rate
- Mortality rate
- Means of transmission
To develop a comprehensive decontamination protocol, understanding the characteristics of the virus and the layout of the building is critical. For example, coronavirus is transmitted via contact. Therefore, high-risk areas like doorknobs, elevator buttons, and light switches should be disinfected thoroughly. On the other hand, if the virus is airborne, decontaminating the HVAC system prevents further spread of the virus. When providing virus decontamination services, the following should be considered:
- Sensitive areas in the building
- Normal operation hours
- Ingress and egress areas
- Type of occupants in the building
- The use of the commercial building
- Number of people currently infected by the virus
- The time the virus has infected these people
- High traffic areas
- Design of the HVAC system
Understanding how the commercial building is utilized, the high traffic areas, and the type of people in the building facilitate successful commercial virus decontamination.
