High Level Dust Removal Helps to Prevent Covid-19
With clean and hygienic work environments being of such high importance for companies across the UK, high level dust removal is a solution that can make life easier, while reducing the spread of COVID-19.
The health risks of dust
Businesses often use cleaning techniques to improve the appearance of the most visible areas within their workplace. However, up to date advice released by the World Health Organisation (WHO) has made it clear that the presence of dust could pose health risks to both staff and visitors at your property.
A recent scientific WHO report discusses research which suggests that fine particles in the air (such as dust) can act as a transmission agent for COVID-19. The findings indicate that it could also be transmitted via indirect contact, i.e. inhaling respiratory droplets containing the virus, thus why face masks are now mandatory in shops across the country.
But what does this mean for businesses? Well, if the airborne spread of coronavirus can be facilitated and extended through dust particles in the air, companies need to think carefully about how they can reduce the risks.
What are your responsibilities as an employer?
It’s a company’s responsibility to protect the wellbeing of their employees, clients and public visiting their property. Therefore, as dust could act as a transporting mechanism for COVID-19, this needs to be considered when implementing new cleaning practices across your commercial premises.
Public Health England guidance has reinforced the need for robust measures in public and communal areas, with regular cleaning playing a vital role to reduce the transmission of the virus.
This doesn’t just mean looking at those areas of the workplace that are frequently touched, but any hard to access spaces too. Built-up dust could later act as an airborne carrier of infectious diseases.
What is high level dust cleaning & how can it reduce the spread of COVID-19?
Have you ever been in a supermarket or shop and looked up, only to see a lot of dust covering the ceiling and upper walls? While it’s often easy to clean surfaces within easy reach, those spots situated at higher levels are often ignored. Luckily, there is a solution available.
To clean these areas, high level dust cleaning is required, and one of the most effective techniques to extract and remove the dust is with a specialist hoover. Our vacuuming machines can access heights of up to 30 feet, getting to any internal areas that were previously impossible to reach via standard cleaning methods.
The SkyVac has a rapid airflow to extract the dust from surfaces at height, achieving an efficient, precise clean thanks to an integrated High Reach Wireless Camera. Cleaning from the ground, it allows for safe, deeper cleaning practices.
