One of the main ways in which the coronavirus transmits from one person to another is through contaminated surfaces. Evidence suggests that this virus can survive for several hours to days on porous and non-porous surfaces. This is one of the greatest threats that we face today each time we visit the grocery store, drug store, and other public places.
We offer the best cleanup services for COVID-19 in Vancouver with a team of experienced and skilled technicians. We follow the Health Canada guidelines to mitigate the contamination of the coronavirus on your indoor and outdoor surfaces. We wipe all surfaces around your home or business as needed and follow it with disinfection. Professional cleaning and disinfection can protect you and your family from contracting COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses.
How long does the novel coronavirus live on surfaces?
One study conducted by scientists from the CDC suggests that the COVID-19 virus can live for up to three days on plastic and stainless steel. This means that if someone with COVID-19 touches a doorknob, handle, table, countertop, keyboard, or light switch, the novel coronavirus can live on these surfaces for up to 72 hours. It is highly important that you constantly clean and disinfect your homes and cars each time after you return from a public place. It is also crucial that you follow this cleaning protocol if someone in your house exhibits symptoms of COVID-19.
When it comes to the virus’s life span on fabrics, it is yet to be determined. However, the CDC recommends that you change and wash your clothes each time after you return home from a public place or a place of business. The CDC also recommends that you use the warmest water setting in your washing machine to wash your clothes and dry them. Be sure to follow the same cleaning protocol for your clothes, towels, and other fabrics, if you are caring for someone sick.
What to do if someone with coronavirus has been to your business?
If a potential COVID-19 patient visits your home or place of business, you must call a professional cleaning service provider to clean and disinfect your establishment with an EPA-registered disinfectant.
We use Health Canada approved protocols to clean and disinfect surfaces such as floors, walls, tables, doorknobs, light switches, faucets, sinks, handles, desks, and toilets.

Some info about the disinfectant
The disinfectant we use is an EPA registered hospital disinfectant cleaner, mold killer, and odor eliminator. Its formula is non-irritating to the skin. Non-corrosive to most treated articles and NSF certified (No rinse required) for food contact surfaces. Kills 99.999% of bacteria; is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial that performs against bacteria, yeasts, viruses, fungi, spores, molds, mildews, and other microbes, is used against the Ebola virus according to the recent Center of Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
The disinfectant does fit the emerging pathogen requirements for viruses showing efficacy against enveloped and non-enveloped virus both large and small. Due to the fact that COVID-19 is in the coronavirus genus, and it currently has efficacy on Feline coronavirus, Strain WSU 79-1683, ATCC VR 989** and Canine coronavirus Strain 1-71, ATCC VR-809**, the supplier feels it will be effective against the COVID-19.
The disinfection is done using a ULV (Ultra Low Volume) cold fogging machine, that uses large volumes of air at low pressures to transform liquid into droplets that are dispersed into the atmosphere.
