How COVID-19 Lives Inside your Facility
COVID-19 is a viral pathogen. Pathogens are microorganisms that cause disease. Pathogens spread through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes (or even breathes!) inside your facility, ultimately landing on horizontal surfaces. They are also tracked indoors on shoes or clothing. Pathogens can live on inanimate objects – like flooring or upholstery – for as long as 30 months. Pathogens recirculate when hard-surface flooring or carpet are walked upon or seating is utilized.
How Pathogens (like COVID-19) are Eliminated
HEAT – Bacteria and viruses are generally destroyed by temperatures in excess of 167°F. Scientists discovered in April, 2020 that COVID-19 requires a minimum temperature of 197.6°F for extermination.
DISINFECTANT – Disinfectant can be very effective in eliminating pathogens (incl COVID-19), IF (1) the site is properly prepared; (2) a disinfectant with the correct active ingredient(s) for the pathogen of concern is chosen; and (3) the disinfectant is applied correctly. Not all disinfectants kill all pathogens.
Choose Safety. Disinfect your Facility.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends eliminating pathogens using a
- Deep Clean – using the warmest water appropriate and appropriate soap/detergent
- Disinfect – using an EPA-approved disinfectant
