Covid is evolving – what you can do to minimise your risk of infection

The UK is officially entering cold and flu season and with this also brings covid back to the forefront of people’s minds.

The government announced the new covid Pirola variant seemingly made up of several variants including (XBB, ESG5.1 and BA.2.86) is proving more resilient than ever.

Whilst we can’t avoid catching covid entirely; there are ways we can keep ourselves safer. You can follow the steps below to avoid seasonal colds, flus, and covid:

  1. Always wash your hands as soon as possible after touching any public surfaces. If you know this isn’t going to be practical whilst you’re out, invest in some hand sanitiser and carry it with you.
  2. As our name suggests ‘touch points’ are something you need to clean regularly whether that be at home or within your place of work. Touch points such as light switches and door handles are constantly in use and should be cleaned thoroughly.
  3. If you have had an outbreak of covid in your workplace and are concerned about your team all coming down with it, we would suggest having an experienced cleaning team come in and expertly fog your premises to ensure your business is safe and free of infection.
  4. If you have access to the vaccine, perhaps that’s something you should consider to not only minimise your risk but also to minimise the risk of others around you.

Working in a clean environment is essential for the health of your employees and clients. With Covid still lingering, it’s important to ensure that any surfaces are appropriately cleaned with disinfectant solutions. Fogging is a quick and effective way of disinfecting a large space helping to control the spread of infection.

What is Fogging?

Fogging is a process used by professional cleaners to sanitise an extensive area, quickly and efficiently. A fogging machine uses an antiviral disinfectant spray to administer the chemical over a large space. A disinfectant fogger is often used to deep clean public transport, nurseries, and care homes, where there are many different people potentially spreading Covid and other infections via coughing or sneezing.

What Are the Benefits of Fogging?

  1. Deep cleans a large area quickly with minimal disruption.
  2. Commonly used to clean offices, schools, and other working environments.
  3. Prevents the potential spread of infection.
  4. Provides a safe environment for staff and the public.
  5. Meets health and safety regulations.
