How to Protect Against the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Outbreak With AGI’s Priority Sanitization, Disinfection, and Sterilization Services

As the world scrambles to find answers amid the COVID-19 outbreak, we felt it necessary to share some of our experience in virus sanitization, disinfection, and sterilization in an effort to answer questions and provide some reassurance.

While the novel coronavirus is new by name and definition, AGI has been at the forefront of forensic sanitization, disinfection, and sterilization for nearly 20 years, and currently operates in more than 20 countries.


Given AGI’s expertise in sanitization, disinfection, and sterilization services around the world, we have received many requests to help the wider residential and commercial market during the COVID-19 crisis.

For that reason, we would like to make our Priority Coronavirus Sanitization, Disinfection, and Sterilization Service available to the general residential and commercial sectors, in an effort to help keep staff and families safe.

Before we explain how AGI’s Priority Coronavirus Sanitization, Disinfection, and Sterilization Service works, let’s give a background on how viruses spread, and how to eradicate them.

How Does COVID-19 Spread in a Workplace?

From Harvard Medical School:

“Droplets that are produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes may land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby, or possibly be inhaled into their lungs. 

Coronavirus can also spread from contact with infected surfaces or objects. For example, a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the coronavirus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.”

And from the Journal of Hospital Infection:

 “On different types of materials it can remain infectious for from 2 hours up to 9 days.”

So essentially this highly contagious virus will stay on most work surfaces for up to 9 days, which is a problem for any business that has commonly touched surfaces, whether it be a desk or a coffee maker.


What Is the Difference Between Sanitization, Disinfection, and Sterilization for COVID-19?

Treatments for any virus (including coronavirus, bacteria, or fungus can be split into three separate categories — sanitisation, disinfection, and sterilization.


What Are the Options for Eradicating Coronavirus From a Home or Workplace?

AGI has two main services for eradicating COVID-19.

The first is AGI’s Priority Coronavirus  Sanitization and Disinfection Service in Malaysia — this service is suitable for the sanitization of business premises and residential settings where the inhabitants are of generally good health.

The second is AGI’s Priority Coronavirus Sterilization Service in Malaysia — this a specialist treatment called Steramist that ensures eradication of 99.9999% of pathogens. This service is best for settings where the inhabitants have compromised health, such as hospitals or old folks’ homes.

Let’s take a look at each treatment in more detail.


AGI’s Experience in Sterilization, Disinfection, Sanitization and High-Risk Cleaning

When you are dealing with something as serious as COVID-19, you want to make sure that your high-risk cleaning service provider has the experience to keep you, your loved ones and co-workers safe.

AGI have been responsible providers of high-risk decontamination services in Malaysia for nearly 20 years. In that time we have become Malaysia’s trusted specialists in the sanitization of bacteria and viruses, decontamination, disaster restoration, and air quality management.

AGI follows the EPA, CDC, and NEA guidelines, and is also in line with Malaysia Ministry of Health’s SOPs. All AGI technicians don an impenetrable white suit which covers from head to ankle (manufactured by us in partnership with virologists) as well as ankle booties, gloves, face shield, N95 mask or respirator, and eye protection.

All AGI technicians are also Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified.

Where possible, AGI will go above and beyond those guidelines to ensure your absolute safety and protection.

Most regular household cleaning and disinfection products will eliminate most of the COVID-19 virus from non-porous surfaces. If your household has been infected with COVID-19, use surface virucidal disinfectants, such as 0.05% sodium hypochlorite or ethanol (at least 70%) based products.

In settings where people are not immunocompromised or affected by COVID-19, most common household disinfection products will eliminate the COVID-19 virus from non-porous surfaces. Start by using soap/detergent and water to wipe away dust and debris, followed up by spraying with a disinfectant.

It’s not just hospitals and homes for the elderly that need to be disinfected for COVID-19. All homes, workplaces, and publically accessible buildings should implement a robust cleaning and disinfection regime.

Most regular household cleaning and disinfection products will eliminate the COVID-19 virus from most surfaces, whoever, for extra confidence, please use surface virucidal disinfectants, such as 0.05% sodium hypochlorite or ethanol (at least 70%) based products.
