How to properly disinfect elevators during the epidemic

As a vertical means of transportation, elevators are vulnerable to pollution due to the small space of the car. During the epidemic, the number of people taking the elevator at a time should be limited, and preventive disinfection should be done at the same time. The interior of the van elevator is disinfected at least once a day, and the handrail of the escalator is disinfected every 4 hours.
Ready to work
1. Before entering the elevator disinfection site, disinfection personnel should be equipped with their own protective equipment, such as protective clothing, gloves, work shoes, masks, goggles, etc.
2. Before disinfection, stop the elevator and set up disinfection warning signs.
3. Prepare disinfectant equipment and items, such as disinfectant, clean rags, watering cans, mops, etc.
Van elevator
1. Make signs at the elevator entrance to remind passengers to wear masks. Passengers should try to avoid touching the keys with their hands directly, reduce communication, and do personal protection.
2. Button disinfection: It is recommended to stick the plastic wrap, replace the plastic wrap several times a day, or sterilize the surface of the plastic wrap. If 75% ethanol is used for disinfection, the ethanol can be sprayed onto the surface of the object with a watering can, and then wiped and disinfected with a clean rag. It can also be wiped with 250-500mg/L chlorine-containing disinfectant and wiped clean with water after 30 minutes.
3. Cleaning and disinfection of elevator car walls and bottom: Wipe or spray with 250-500mg/L chlorine-containing disinfectant, and wipe clean with clean water after 30 minutes of action. Make disinfection signs at least 3 times a day.
4. Air conditioning is not used in the elevator car, and ventilation is strengthened.
1. Cleaning and disinfection of the handrails on both sides of the escalator: 75% ethanol can be used to wipe, or 250-500mg/L chlorine-containing disinfectant can be wiped and wiped clean with water after 30 minutes. Make disinfection signs at least 4 times a day.
2. Cleaning and disinfection of the surface of escalator steps: Use 250-500mg/L chlorine-containing disinfectant for wet mopping, and wipe clean with water after 30 minutes. At least 2 times a day.
Precautions
1. Air disinfection inside the van elevator at least once a day. Escalator handrails are disinfected every 4 hours, and the frequency of disinfection should be increased for elevator handrails and buttons in densely populated places such as subways, shopping malls, supermarkets, and hospitals.
2. chlorine-containing disinfectants are irritating to the skin and mucous membranes and are corrosive to metals. Wear masks and gloves when preparing and using them.
3. Ethanol is flammable and explosive, so it should be kept away from the fire source, avoid large-area spraying, and can be partially wiped.
