Did you know that your metal building could increase the overall spread of disease or virus? While it may seem insane, it’s true. A prime example would be the recent outbreak of COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus. This deadly disease has taken the lives of many while continuing to spread like wildfire throughout the remainder of the world. While there are several precautions you can take such as washing your hands and isolating yourself from others, you should also consider taking precautions for your building. Ask yourself, what can you do with your building to help decrease the spread of the Coronavirus?
The Coronavirus, which was first found in Wuhan, China, has continued to spread quickly throughout other countries in the world. Not only has it changed the lives of many in China and Italy, but it has also affected people in the United States. While human contact has been the most common reason for spread, other factors such as buildings has caused it to continue spreading. For example, the Diamond Princess, a cruise ship which has been quarantined, had around 3,000 passengers and crew members aboard during its most recent trip. According to the New York Times, at least 700 passengers contracted the virus during their trip and continued to spread it to their friends, family members and so on. So, what does this tell us? It means that poorly managed structures such as cruise ships, schoolhouses, churches and even homes can easily help spread the virus. While there are several ways you can help to contain the Coronavirus, we’ve listed one of the most efficient ways to keep your building from causing any further spread.
Invest in a Proper Ventilation System – Believe it or not, investing in a proper ventilation system for your building can do so much more than just keep your structure comfortable inside. A properly installed system can help keep contaminants in the air such as chemicals, germs and other sicknesses out of your building and away from its contents. Even if your unit isn’t used to house or entertain people, the Coronavirus can live on certain surfaces for up to several days, so it’s important to take all precautions. Not only will a well-managed ventilation system keep your building comfortable and safe throughout the year, but it will also help the structure stay clean.
An All-In Approach is the Key!
From contaminated surfaces such as door handles and countertops, cell phones and pens, there are a number of ways for the Coronavirus to continue spreading.
