As the world looks to reopen, it’s imperative we all take the necessary steps and precautions to ensure the safety of ourselves and those closest to us. 
 
2020 has seen an increased level of downtime for yachts and subsequently, their HVAC systems. When stood down, filters and ducting become a prime breeding ground for bacteria and viruses posing major health hazards to those onboard.
 
Traditionally, manufacturers will only inform customers to clean the filters in their air conditioning units; however, bacteria and viruses can collect and breed at numerous points within the system.
 
Mark Childs, CEO of Sirius Technologies – a UK-based chemicals developer and manufacturer – says the potential consequences could be devastating. 
 
“HVAC systems collect a lot of dirt and dust, but also offer the perfect environment to support bacteria and virus growth. Once the system is turned on, contaminated airflow is able to enter the cabin posing a threat to all onboard.”
 
“This is why we recommend going further than the manufacturer’s recommendations. When applying StereX BioBarrier with an electrostatic sprayer, the product is able to line the internals of the whole system, killing any existing microbes and protecting the surfaces for a minimum of 28 days.”
 
StereX HVAC treatments are certified to kill 99.999% of bacteria and viruses including SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. 
 
You can learn more about these services by getting in touch via the StereX website.
