Hundreds of students will be back in the classrooms in approximately 2 weeks’ time with colleges and universities to follow but it will not be the same school year with staggered start and finish times, class ‘bubbles’ and newly enhanced cleaning procedures.
It is imperative that hygiene, decontamination and safeguarding are a top priority if we are to protect teachers, pupils, parents and the wider community and although washing our hands is important, this alone will not suffice. To really keep people safe the following will be necessary:-
- Cleaning throughout the day
- High touchpoint cleaning
- Emergency cleans following reported cases of COVID-19
- Decontamination anti-viral fogging/spraying
- Deep cleaning
- Computer cleaning
- Carpet steam cleaning
You will no doubt be familiar with all of the above except perhaps for the decontamination anti-viral fogging which although not a new service has become more commonplace in recent months.
Fogging offers the highest level of service against coronavirus using anti-microbial chemicals in the shortest amount of time meaning it is ideal for a busy educational environment with heavy foot flow.
A fogging machine delivers a fine mist of chemical covering all surfaces from floor to ceiling including all surfaces and hard to reach areas and it can even be used in computer rooms etc. without causing any damage to equipment. The specialist chemical bonds to the areas that it has been sprayed onto killing coronavirus and providing a barrier for up to 30 days.
