COVID-19 belongs to a large family of viruses called coronaviruses that cause respiratory infections. The proprietary UV technology and equipment we employ, specifically Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI), uses UV-C to kill and/or inactivate airborne pathogens, microorganisms, and infectious agents such as bacteria and viruses – including coronaviruses.*

We provide reactive, preventative and proactive ultraviolet sanitisation and disinfection services in response to COVID-19:

  • Reactively, if an individual has, or a group of individuals have, tested positive for COVID-19.
  • Preventatively, if an individual has, or a group of individuals have, interacted with a confirmed or suspected host of COVID-19, or if they themselves are suspected of being infected.
  • Proactively, if no indication of past, present or future COVID-19 infection exists, yet safeguarding and peace of mind are of upmost importance.

Whatever your situation and scenario may be, we will work with you in a prompt, professional and discreet manner to address your COVID-19 concerns.
