As everyone talks about the virus in these pandemic-ridden times, our Director Lincoln R. Kumar Ramiah who has served Suren Cooke Agencies since 1986 enlightens you on ULV disinfection that we offer as part of our specialist disinfection services in Sri Lanka to keep Covid-19 at bay, by attacking the virus in the air.
The Covid-19 virus! it could be anywhere. Even an asymptomatic person can carry it around. In this backdrop, people adopt various safeguards to prevent its transmission, such as, wearing masks, maintaining social distance, practicing hand hygiene and touch point cleaning. But the virus can linger in the environment for as long as it takes. So how do we combat the virus hovering in the air?
Suren Cooke Agencies, which offers three dimensional, specialist disinfection services in Sri Lanka, covering the floor, hard surfaces and the space has now integrated Ultra Low Volume (ULV) misting to meet the rising demand for Covid-19 disinfection, particularly, at places frequented by people. We use this method to disinfect offices, gyms, transport services, banks, factories, homes and elevators.
It is done through a high speed electric misting machine known as the ULV fogger designed to create small spray droplets measuring 5-50 microns. The conventional sprayers create very large droplets of 100-200 microns during treatment. Small droplets of ULV technology effectively attack pathogens, vector carriers and pests in the air, not visible to the naked eye with sufficient hang time (lingering) of the disinfectant droplets in the right size to kill the virus in the air. The larger droplets fall to the ground before attacking the virus.
Apart from attacking the microorganisms in the air, ULV spraying has several other benefits.
It does not leave chemical spillage that make a mess on surfaces during disinfection activity.
A less amount of disinfectant being used to meet the need, is also beneficial cost wise.
The disinfection could be carried out with the occupants only needing to vacate a premise for a short duration. In a business that needs to be kept functioning, you can have the operations up and running within a short time of disinfection leveraging on this technology.
We at Suren Cooke Agencies not only offer our clients the most sophisticated products and technology in the realm of disinfection but also professional expertise to carry out a well-coordinated, proper disinfection exercise in a legally compliant manner.
Our company is licensed by the Registrar of Pesticides as a disinfection service provider as per circular No. RP/PES/01/2021. We have also obtained the ISO 22,000 for Disinfection which is a global standard. While adhering to the regulations issued by the Registrar of Pesticides of Sri Lanka, we follow the health guidelines on Covid-19 and the global standards stipulated by the World Health Organization (WHO), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) USA and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) USA in our services.
Prior to the disinfection, we conduct a site survey in consultation with the client to define the premises to be disinfected, structure wise, people wise and function wise to understand the action and the precautions to be adopted, while ensuring the safety of the people, the premises and the environment.
Although ULV misting could be safely employed in enclosed areas such as elevators, we recommend that people are distanced from the area for a while as a precautionary measure. Our technical experts advice the occupants on the safety measures to be adhered to during the treatment.
