PVC coving can help fight and limit the spread of diseases

PVC coving, alongside other cladding solutions, are a great way to fight against the spread of viruses and diseases.

We write this, of course, because of the international worry surrounding the global spread of coronavirus.

And we don’t wish to contribute to that worry by mentioning it on our blog. But it’s a simple fact that, while the world is rushing to find a way to stop the virus in its tracks, the best way to minimise risk of catching it and spreading it is through prevention.

PVC coving when combined with hygienic wall linings, ceiling linings, wall partitions and many other protection-based products – when installed properly to the specifications of the area – are the easiest and best ways to keep environments easy to clean.

Because coronavirus isn’t the only illness that people can help prevent the spread of with the right approach to cleanliness, especially if you work in or own a public-facing service or business such as a hospital, school, café or restaurant.

Covings and claddings together create an easy to clean and maintainable surface area that can be wiped down at a moment’s notice. They stop germs and mould from manifesting in exposed brickwork, grout and other materials, helping to contain them and stopping them spread.

PVC coving is especially important in this regard. Some may think that having hygienic walling is enough to keep the kitchen or other areas clean but, using the right coving and reducing the tight corners and nooks and crannies means that there are less paces for bacteria to hide. Coving also creates a seal between difficult wall to wall and wall to ceiling joints.

Think of working in a kitchen; you may have hygienic ceiling covering but, steam and water can rise. So too can germs, and without the right PVC coving, it could still create a scenario where mould and other undesirable elements could manifest in the room’s original walling.

Again, prevention is the best form of control for illnesses – especially if you have a duty to maintain cleanliness for both public and staff.

It may be a while before a vaccine or other solution is found in the fight against coronavirus, but having the cleanest place to work in as you could possibly have is the absolute best way to minimise risk at work, and even at home should you so wish.

What’s more, it will also encourage confidence amongst your consumers and workers, too, that yours is a conscientious business with cleanliness (and ultimately their health and safety) at the forefront of who you are and what you do.
