Emergency Vehicle Disinfection Service

Emergency Vehicle Disinfection Service

GRID Group uses high temperature dry steam cleaning for the Emergency Vehicle Disinfection service. This is in line with The Australian Government protocol against Covid-19. Here are a series of questions and answers regarding the protocol and the service offered by GRID Group.

Who recommends steam cleaning?

The Australian Governments guidelines provided by the CDNA recommend steam cleaning soft surfaces and a carpets in the event of viral agents. In the case of vomit or bbf they recommend that the bbf is removed with neutral detergent and water followed by steam when possible. This recommendation is inline with governments around the world. The UK government recommends steam cleaning specifically against Covid-19.

Can steam vapour aerolise the virus?

No, the research does not support this. The dry steam machines at GRID Group reach temperatures up to 176°C (carpet steam cleaners only reach up to 70°C). Both Monash Health and the NHS in England have tested dry steam to see if it can spread anything. They tested this by sampling the air, vapor and additionally placed settle plates around the room and found that the steam did NOT spread anything.

Can GRID’s Dry steam units kill Covid-19?

There is still little known about Covid-19. To be effective it is important to break down the mucus surrounding the virus and kill it with temperature. Professor Bloomfield from UNLV says “to actively kill the virus you need temperatures of around 60 degrees [Celsius]”. The machines used by GRID are heated to >176°C drastically reducing the contact time required.

Steam is also the recommended process for sanitising a viral agent of any soft furnishings or carpet by the Australian Government, International Cruise Liners Infectious Guidelines and also specifically against Covid-19 by the United Kingdom Government.

Can steam be used on other surfaces?

Yes, the steam machines at GRID Group can be used on nearly any surface.
(Our dry steam cleaners and recommended microfibre cloths are being used as the sole cleaning method in hospitals within Australia and New Zealand. Combining these two cleaning technologies has seen a statistically significant improvement on achieving a reduction in hospital acquired infections and improved cleaning efficacy.)

Do we use vacuum or just steam?

It is recommended that in most cases just steam or steam and microfibre is used.
Special consideration can be given to use a vacuum in certain circumstances – in this case we ONLY use vacuums with HEPA filtration.

Are all microfibre cloths equal?

No. GRID Group use a microfibre cloth proven to remove at least 99.9% of micro-organisms. Most microfibre commercially available do not meet these standards. Disposable microfibre is always recommended in the case of an infectious organism.

PPE Requirements

If cleaning is being performed in an area suspected of being contaminated with the virus the appropriate PPE must always be worn. Introducing a steam cleaner does not require additional PPE.

What else needs to be considered?

Frequently touched points should be cleaned at least twice daily and more so after busy periods (i.e. reception desks, waiting room chairs, ER chairs).

For any other technical question please feel free to call our Operations Department to discuss.

Cleaning for Aged Care and Essential Services

Cleaning for Aged Care and Essential Services

Cleaning for our vulnerable and those in essential services, against the backdrop of the Covid-19 virus, requires a twentieth century solution—hospital grade, food grade disinfectant cleaning products coupled with dry steam.

GRID Group invested in the technology to disinfect and clean living and working spaces thoroughly. Superheated dry steam vapour technology takes water, trapping and heating it to over 170°C, to create a pressurised steam vapour. This is guaranteed to destroy the virus on all surfaces. Traditional steam cleaners operate at around 60°C.

  • Temperature – High temperature steam breaks the bond between the dirt and the surface and kills germs, bacteria, parasites (such as dust mites) and other allergens through thermal shock;
  • Humidity – The micro droplets of water detach and trap the dirt from the treated surfaces for easy vacuum extraction or removal using microfibre; and
  • Pressure – Adjustable pressure allows the user to quickly change from a gentle clean on the most delicate of surfaces to a powerful jet of steam for the more difficult grease and grime.

In addition to the cleaning and sanitising functions, a reduction in the amount of water used and the temperature produced on the surface means that the surface water evaporates very quickly, leaving the surface dry a short time after cleaning is complete. This is ideal to disinfect common living areas like chairs and couches. Common touch points however, such as light switches can only be disinfected using our disinfecting cleaning products.

All of our key staff have completed the Infection Control Training – COVID 19 course by the Australian Government Department of Health.

GRID Group have established internal Disinfection Cleaning protocol in the event of a person testing positive in the facility which we make available to our clients to follow.

Active Ingredient: Benzalkonium Chloride – 0.1300% *

* “Disinfectants/Sterilants: COVID-19 is an enveloped virus, which means it has an outer membrane. Enveloped viruses are relatively easy to kill compared to non-enveloped viruses, as the outer layer is easily damaged by most environmental disinfectants, provided the disinfectant is used in accordance with label directions. Disinfectants containing ≥ 70% alcohol, quaternary ammonium compounds (such as benzalkonium chloride) or diluted household bleach (including products containing sodium hypochlorite) are suitable for use.”—TGA Appropriate use disinfectants link

There are a few small-scale studies demonstrating that an alcohol-free hand sanitiser containing benzalkonium chloride as the active ingredient, at a concentration of 0.13%, is just as effective and even more effective than alcohol at getting rid of bacteria.
