Our thoughts go out to the people and businesses that have been affected during this Flu Season and the spread of the COVID-19. We are stepping up with cleaning and sanitising of surfaces of common areas to help combat the Coronavirus.
According to “The New England Journal of Medicine” the research is showing that the Coronavirus can live on a surface for hours:
- Copper – 4 hours
- Cardboard – 24 hours
- Stainless Steel – 48 hours
- Plastic – 72 hours
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention: a person can be infected with the virus by touching a contaminated surface or object and then touching their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes.
Research is also showing that using certain temperatures, bleaches and sanitation solutions will help to deactivate the virus and kill it.
But it’s vitally important that you know the correct mix or choice of solutions to use! The CDC broadcasted a message to be careful “never to mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser“, and be careful of creating toxic fumes in your workplace or home environment.
All of our team members at JMac Property Services are:
- trained with our effective cleaning procedures,
- experienced in the use of the necessary sanitising solutions and hot water high pressure machinery, and
- also wear the appropriate personal protective equipment.
If you have an area that has people-traffic and you are concerned about safety of your loved ones or the public, then please jump on the phone or fill in the form on our contact page now to organise cleaning and sanitising to combat COVID-19.
Take care and stay safe!
