DDD MEASURES (DISINFECTION, DESINSECTION, DERATIZATION)
DISINFECTION is a set of different measures that are being carried out with the aim of destroying, slowing growth and multiplication or eliminating most of the microorganisms.
Disinfection is carried out by using mechanical, physical and chemical measures.
Mechanical measures include the mechanical removal of microorganisms from work surfaces, objects, or inside the premises as self-destructive methods of removal of microorganisms
Physical measures imply the use of heat (dry or humid) which by its action destroys, slows down growth and multiplication or eliminates most microorganisms
Chemical measures imply the use of chemical substances or disinfectants, which by their action destroy, slow down growth and reproduction or eliminate most microorganisms.
Disinfection is carried out by high quality disinfectants approved by the Ministry of Health
DISINFECTION measures are performed in ventilation and air conditioning systems, kitchens, hospitality and health care facilities, and business and work areas.
DESINSECTION: a common name for a set of preventive and curative measures taken to reduce the population to at least the level in which it would pose a threat or cause harm, stop growth and multiplication or completely eliminate the present populations of harmful insects – arthropods that transmit the causes of infectious diseases, have a parasitic effect on the human body, cause allergic reactions, have toxic effects or are a nuisance or storage pests on food.
Preventive disinsection as a mandatory legal measure of sanitary protection excludes any possible infestation of pests, and thus all the negative consequences. It is also a considerably cheaper way to maintain facilities, since measures of control are much more expensive due to their complexity, methods and spending of considerably larger amounts of resources.
In the disinsection we use: biological, physical, mechanical or chemical measures.
From the techniques of applying biocidal products (insecticides) we use:
- spraying insecticide solutions in the form of solutions, emulsions or suspensions with pressure-sensitive, motor or electric sprayers (drops of 100 to 200 microns)
- spraying of insecticide solutions in the form of solutions, emulsions or suspensions of dispersing devices on electric or gasoline drive (drops of 50 to 100 microns)
- clouding using insecticides in the form of concentrated solutions or working solutions (aqueous or oily) – generators for hot or cold clouding of particle size up to 50 microns
- clouding using insecticidal formulations which, by combustion or smouldering, release aerosols (fumes), vapours or gases
- spraying with insecticide in powder formulation with a spraying device
- application of gels and pheromone traps.
The choice of measures, application techniques (insecticide applications) as well as insecticide types in the disinsection process are carried out directly, depending on the assessment and condition of each facility. Disinfection is done by applying the highest quality ecological resources in a way that excludes the possibility of incidents without disturbing the operation of service users, having in mind the particularity of each particular facility.
Every means has the approval of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Croatia.
DERATIZATION is a set of measures and procedures that are being carried out with the aim of reducing the population of harmful rodents, which are natural transmissions of infectious diseases, and because of their large spread, fertility and intelligence represent a great danger to man and its environment.
Deratization also includes all measures taken to prevent the entry, retention and reproduction of harmful rodents on surfaces, premises or in facilities. We suppress and reduce the population of harmful rodents by applying mechanical, physical or chemical measures.
We provide complete and expert services of deratization by applying the highest quality rodenticide of the 2nd generation. The choice and type of the injured bait, the manner and the dynamics of the exposure and the precautionary measure are determined for each facility, in particular with the previous drafting of the annual deratization plan. Deratization boxes are placed according to the Plan and arranged with the ground plan of the facility, at predetermined critical locations. Each exposed bait is duly marked and recorded in the ground floor of the facility. Deratization boxes are systematically monitored and, if necessary, supplemented with a new amount of poisoned bait. During each deratization process, special attention is paid to the safety of people and animals.
