Ventilation, the fundamental measure to avoid contagion in offices

Beyond masks and hydro-alcoholic gels, ventilation may be one of the ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19

As the cold sets in, people start to spend more time indoors and ventilation takes on great importance and, when designed correctly, a good ventilation system can even reduce this risk of contagion. In summer ventilation is much easier and not a problem, but in winter things change. Cleaning Polished, a company with a long history in the disinfection world, remembers that the most important thing is to use a mask and to use hand sanitizer frequently. However, using soap and water also reduces the risk of transmission.

Ventilation systems can be friends or enemies of people’s health, depending on their operation and maintenance. Ventilation systems are generally designed to achieve the ideal temperature in the home, but are not intended to avoid the risk of exposure to viruses. In addition, a team from the University of Cambridge has shown that “mixed ventilation” is a system that evenly disperses pollutants in the air. Pollutants can be both droplets and aerosols in the air that contain viruses.

According to Polished Cleaning, a total and daily cleaning of spaces minimizes the risk of contagion. This company, which supplies a large quantity and variety of disinfection products, recommends cleaning the air with ozone machines as well to reduce the risk of contagion. Although ozone is not a method that completely prevents contagion, it is a good way to minimize this risk. However, Polishing Cleaning recommends the use of masks at all possible times in work environments. Another way to reduce the risk of transmitting SARS-CoV-2 is to disinfect all surfaces daily after use.

Cleaning Polished recommends both its high-risk surgical mask and the FFP2-KN95 disposable mask, the latter being the safest. Preventing the spread of viruses by drops and sprays is very important and should be done by taking several measures together. In addition, a good cleaning of public centers is extremely important. Cleaning Polished recommends cleaning with disinfectants for each type of surface or even using bleach. However, an all-purpose disinfectant is also a good idea. Cleaning Polishing always recommends using disinfectants registered as bactericides.
