Disinfection / Disinfectant cleaning
When should you order disinfectant cleaning?
Disinfectant cleaning is recommended in the following cases:
when cleaning up after a deceased person or animal carcass, disinfection/deodorization should be carried out
in large offices, institutions with high customer traffic, shops, restaurants, recommended (if not daily, at least once a week)
during an epidemic
What are the types of disinfecting cleaning?
Disinfective cleaning can be carried out in several ways, including surface disinfection only or air disinfection, but there are also procedures that penetrate into the inner layers:
We clean the surfaces with surface disinfection agent (in strict compliance with the action time!)
using an ozone generator
using a cold/hot fog machine
ADVISE! We recommend the combination of different procedures to achieve the most effective results!
What good to know about ozone!
What is the ozone?
Ozone and oxygen are so-called allotropic modifications of each other. Ozone is a poisonous gas with a pungent smell. It has a pungent smell, even when diluted hundreds of times, similar to chlorine. Its toxic effects are caused by the oxidative breakdown of unsaturated fatty acids. Source: Wikipedia
The effects of ozone:
1. Disinfectant effect:
Ozone is one of the most powerful oxidising and disinfecting agents, hundreds to thousands of times more effective than chlorine, depending on the number of micro-organisms. If it comes into contact with any micro-organisms such as bacteria, viruses, moulds, fungi, it kills them. Micro-organisms cannot build up an immunity to ozone, unlike they can with conventional chemicals.
2. Deodorizing effect:
As soon as ozone comes into contact with the elements that cause the smell, it simply destroys them. Ozone treatment eliminates unpleasant odours, such as urine and faecal odour in extremely contaminated properties (in these cases, multiple level of treatment may be required!), tobacco smoke, strong odours from livestock, etc.
3. Germicidal effect:
Ozone is also effective in the fight against fungi and mould. It even kills airborne spores! However, ozone generator treatment alone is not enough to completely eliminate mould or fungus. Combined treatments should be used in both cases! A deeper penetrating wet mould and fungicide should be applied to the wall, which will also penetrate into the lower layers of the surface! First of all, the cause of the mould must be eliminated, otherwise the affected area will mould again!
4. Insecticidal and miticidal effect:
As mentioned earlier, ozone is an extremely toxic gas. It penetrates the tiniest cracks, crevices, sponges, furniture and carpet fabrics. So even the tiniest parasites can't hide from it!
How the ozone generator works?
Oxygen molecules are driven at ambient pressure to a high-voltage electrode, where they are converted into ozone by a voltage, known as a corona or silent discharge. These molecules are delivered to the desired location by a fan.
How is ozone generator disinfection/deodorisation done?
The ozone generator disinfection or deodorisation treatment can be carried out in a completely enclosed space. To achieve the correct effect, the effect time must be respected. At the start of the procedure, the machine is placed in the interior of the property (in the case of several rooms, the procedure must be carried out in each separate area), and the air must be circulated with extra fans to achieve a better effect, so that the ozone can get to the very last corner. The treatment can last from half an hour to several hours, depending on the level of pollution and the size of the airspace. IMPORTANT! During the treatment, no human beings, animals or any other living creature (including houseplants) MAY STAY IN THE ROOM.
