What can I do to protect myself and help prevent the spread of disease and bacteria?
Protection measures for everyone
Many countries around the world have seen cases of COVID-19 and several have seen outbreaks. Authorities in China and some other countries have succeeded in slowing or stopping their outbreaks. However, the situation is unpredictable so check regularly for the latest news.
You can reduce your chances of being infected or spreading COVID-19 by taking some simple precautions:
- Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with a suitable hand sanitiser or wash them with soap and water.
Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using a suitable hand sanitiser kills viruses that may be on your hands.
- Maintain at least 1.5 metres distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
- Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
- Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance.
Why? Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
Your guide to disinfection and sanitisation
Dawson’s Australia want to share some helpful hints to understanding some of these practices. Below we’ll discuss useful tips to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and provide some solutions to consider when reducing the presence of bacteria.
What are the hygiene and safety risks to consider?
Firstly, why is disinfecting and sanitising so important to us? This is because of the many types of bacteria that are always present in the air and on the surfaces around us. Some of these bacteria and viruses such as Coronavirus P. aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Influenza A, E.Coli and Enterococcus hirae can make us sick. The symptoms may include upper respiratory problems, vomiting, diarrhoea, headache and fever. Moreover, there is a cross-contamination risk by transferring these harmful elements to people around us through interaction. Above all, it makes us more vulnerable during an outbreak such as COVID-19 which the world is currently experiencing.
What areas are considered high risk for contamination?
A location or space becomes unhealthy and contaminated due to a number of reasons. Poor air quality, the presence of people who are ill or sick, and an environment with high traffic areas or where people interact and conduct activities.
Some of the common areas of high risk contamination include:
- Aged & disability care facilities
- Office equipment
- Public Transport
- General Household
- Food preparation and serving areas
- Production, manufacturing, warehouse and storage facilities
- Playground or play area
- Retail offices, showrooms
- Offices, meeting rooms, canteens

Complete protection from people who care.
How often should you have the disinfecting and sanitising done?
This will vary for each situation, there are a lot of variables to take into consideration and some of these are; how much activity is at the premises, how often surfaces are touched such as door handles, etc. Some clients just have it done once, however the bacteria and pathogens will return, so we would recommend having the disinfecting and sanitising carried out at frequent intervals that suit your particular situation and budget to ensure peace of mind for all
How long does surface sanitisation treatment take?
Typically, a home or small commercial office or childcare centre would take approximately one hour. A large-scale office and warehouse or multiple level building might take a few hours.
When should we engage a disinfecting and sanitisation service?
Rather than waiting for a family member or employee to get sick, we recommend a proactive maintenance program to help keep good hygiene and reduce the risk to your family, employees and clients.
What is the cost of a disinfecting and sanitising job?
Dawson’s Australia offers Disinfecting and Sanitising from as little as $330. Contact us today to discuss your requirements.
How is the disinfecting and sanitising service applied?
Our Surface Disinfectant and Sanitiser Spray is applied with handheld or backpack mister capable of producing a fine particle, which is then applied wet onto clean dry surfaces and large open spaces. Our sanitising product is listed in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods – ARTG #338686, and is suitable for most surfaces including steel, plastic, fibres, rubber and wood and will bind to surfaces over extended periods of time up to 30 days. It is also ideal and safe to be used around children, pets and plants and breaks down to form harmless organic compounds which are not environmentally damaging.
As it dries, it forms an organo silane matrix of electrostatically charged spikes that bond to a diverse range of surfaces and substrates. Unlike all non-bound disinfectants, our Surface Disinfectant and Sanitiser does not leach from (or leave) the treated surface, it does not deplete in microbial efficacy, create a field of inhibition or promote microbial resistance.
