Absolutely, a core aspect of our service is emergency response treatments, supporting with decontaminations due to infection outbreaks, fire, water and sewage etc.
Like any professional service, our prices depend on the size and complexity of the job. To provide a quote, we seek to understand a) the size and layout of the premises or b) the number of objects (e.g., transport vehicles or bio safety cabinets) that require treatment. Quick indicative quotes can be provided following a brief discussion.
Prices start from £100+VAT.
Yes, absolutely. The old saying goes ‘prevention is better than cure’. This is certainly the case with infection prevention and control best practice. We provide regular preventative treatments, weekly, monthly and quarterly, significantly reducing the risks of an infection outbreak.
For advice regarding your obligations regarding COVID-19, please refer to the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) guidance.
The HSE has recently updated its guidance: “Disinfecting using fog, mist and other systems during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic”. Within this guidance, the HSE confirms that dry fogging is a suitable method for disinfecting large areas. The HSE also advises that the choice of chemical for fogging is extremely important. Chemicals traditionally used for surface disinfection are not automatically suitable for administering as a spray or vapour.
The HSE states in their guidance that hydrogen peroxide is suitable.
Yes, it’s highly likely that we can support your business. Our services are suitable for use within any indoor setting and within most objectives (including planes, helicopters, trains, incubators, bio safety cabinets, sterile manufacturing machinery etc). The only environment that we cannot treat is an outdoor open space.
Touch-less disinfection means an airborne application of disinfectant that negates the need for cloths, mops and other utensils to apply and then wipe away the solution. Core benefits of this approach are:
- Rapid reduction in treatment time and costs vs a manual application approach
- An area of up to 20,000m3 can be treated in a single application
- Removal of cross contamination risks (e.g. moving pathogens from one area to another on a contaminated cloth)
Hydrogen peroxide vapour biodegrades into water and oxygen quickly after the treatment has been administered, ensuring no chemical residue on surfaces or in the atmosphere. In contrast, other disinfectant solutions can leave a surface and/or vapour residue for considerable periods of time (the specifics will vary, depending on the disinfectant solution), increasing risk of hazardous skin, eye and lung reactions.
Under UK law, it is illegal for any manufacturer, seller or service provider to claim that a biocide is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, harmless or natural.
Sanondaf’s stabilised hydrogen peroxide formula is classified as an irritant (it is not classified as toxic), requiring the handler of the chemical to adhere to certain chemical safety practices (such as enhanced PPE, restricted access to areas during and after treatments, chemical spillage risk assessment etc.
After treatment, no chemical residue remains on surfaces or in the atmosphere – it is therefore safe and non-toxic for humans and animals to use a treated space, once the specified down time has expired.
No, quite the opposite, hydrogen peroxide is entirely odourless. Any unpleasant odours present in a space or object are neutralised during the treatment.
