This guide will contain a list of benefits of subscribing to a vector disinfecting service and the hallmarks of a professional disinfecting service to look out for should you wish to subscribe to one in Singapore.
With the arrival of the novel coronavirus, Covid-19, to Singapore’s shores, there has been a corresponding increase in the demand for vector disinfecting services by schools, companies and owners of private residences in Singapore. It is not difficult to understand why the local demand for such services has been on the rise given the shocking scientific reports of Covid-19 living on surfaces such as plastic, glass and metal for up to a lengthy nine days. From DBS’ evacuation of all its 300 employees from its head office to Victoria Junior College’s thorough disinfection of the school compound after one of its teachers contracted Covid-19, it appears that staying safe may be better than sorry during this highly uncertain period.
What is Vector Disinfection?

Vector disinfection, as its name suggests, is a thorough, 360 degrees type of disinfection that is able to eliminate the majority of germs through either chemical methods or physical methods (e.g. heat). Fumigation is, by far, the most common way of delivering the gaseous disinfectant in enclosed spaces, followed by steaming. Regardless of which method the disinfection is carried out via, the process needs to be performed by a trained professional for safety reasons.
How Does Vector Disinfection Differ From Area Cleaning?
Unlike area cleaning which is usually accomplished with soap or water and is merely a physical removal of dirt and grime from surfaces, disinfection makes use of concentrated chemicals or heat to kill off a high percentage of germs residing on surfaces, rendering them incapable of reproducing. Another significant difference between the two is that while area cleaning is oftentimes restricted to reachable areas, the gaseous chemical used in vector disinfection can penetrate into even the most isolated nook and cranny within your home.
