Frequently Asked Questions

Why to Protect your Surface ?

As the Covid-19 pandemic has spread, scientists around the world have been studying the exact nature of this virus and how it is transmitted. Surface contact has been identified as the most prolific way this virus spreads. There is now a very real fear in the population of any contact any surfaces which may have been touched by other people example, door handles, work surfaces be it desks, tables, chairs, kitchen work tops etc. Like many respiratory viruses, including flu, Covid-19 can be spread in tiny droplets released from the nose and mouth of an infected person as they cough. A single cough can produce up to 3,000 droplets. These particles can be transmitted by the infected person by touching surfaces.

How Long Can Covid-19 survive on the surface?

Studies suggest Covid-19 can survive on a non-porous surface for up to 72 hours and up to 48 hours on porous surfaces. Some studies on other coronaviruses, including Sars and Mers, found they can survive on metal, glass and plastic for as long as nine days, unless they are properly disinfected.

How Fast Can viruses spread from infected Surfaces ?

An recent study demonstrated that viral DNA left on a hospital bed rail in an isolation room had spread within ten hours to 18 other surfaces, including door handles, chairs in a waiting room, children’s toys and books in a play area, it shows just how far a virus in a droplet of liquid that lands on a bed can spread by people touching surfaces.
