DisinfectYour.com extends COVID cleaning

DisinfectYour.com extends COVID cleaning

(Posted on 05/01/21)

Rotterdam-based company DisinfectYour.com has launched a new service to help vessel owners and crew respond to COVID-19 outbreaks. The service includes complete disinfection of closed areas on a vessel, as well as care for the crew - including sanitised transfers between the vessel and COVID-safe accommodation in Rotterdam – during the treatment.

Even vessels that have spent a long time at sea can still harbour potentially dangerous microorganisms including viruses, with sleeping quarters and galleys particularly fertile breeding grounds for germs and bacteria due to the number of people using these areas. Disinfecting these work areas is a critical part of looking after crew and vessels in the midst of a global pandemic. A new focus on biohazards means it is likely to remain an important part of vessel maintenance even after the current situation has eased.

Nico Vroom, CEO, DisinfectYour.com, said: “Despite strong regulations and safety procedures, COVID-19 can still sneak onboard and we are seeing more vessels being disinfected as outbreaks continue. Our team of specialists has the experience, resources and knowledge to clean and disinfect any closed space within vessels of any type.”

Vessels are treated using a highly effective equipment approved by the UN and the World Health Organization. Nebulisers create a fine disinfectant mist that quickly cover surfaces, enabling the vessel to re-enter service as soon as possible pending a safety check after surfaces have dried.

DisinfectYour.com has a strong pedigree of sanitising workplaces – including airports, public transport facilities, shopping centres and offices as well as ships - to the highest environmental and occupational safety standards. The company’s processes target both visible dirt and invisible organic material to eliminate microorganisms, protecting the health and well-being of its clients’ employees, customers and visitors.

DisinfectYour.com specializes in cleaning and disinfecting both large and small spaces in seagoing ships, aircraft, public transport, office buildings and more.
