Cruise ship cleaning: Environment hygiene and infection protection on cruise ships

Protect your passenger ship, your guests and your crew members from avoidable infection waves or even dramatic epidemics with our Hygiene Standard DioProtection, already tried and tested on prestigious cruise liners! Save yourself the increased use of manual cleaning disinfection as well as the high cost and manpower involved. Take advantage of our fully automatic aerosol atomizer Diosol Generator, that offers a reliable, inexpensive and exceptional standard of hygiene.

The use of our space and surface disinfection device Diosol Generator can curb epidemics cost-efficiently or minimize the risk of outbreak. We help you to improve the ship hygiene program of your passenger ship!

The indicator for a successful implementation of disinfection and cruise ship cleaning measures can only be the decrease or stop of infectious cases. With DIOP you can reach this goal!

The cruise ship disinfection solution against norovirus outbreaks

For travellers it is a terrible thing to imagine:  during the cruise, violent vomiting and diarrhea destroy the most beautiful holiday expectations. Often it involves an infection with the so-called Norovirus. The highly contagious virus is spreading particularly rapidly in closed groups, such as schools, kindergartens, retirement homes – and on cruise ships. For babies, chronically ill and elderly infections with viruses can be very dangerous.

Noroviruses are regularly found on carpets, mirrors, door handles, wall claddings or stair railings of the ships. They are transmitted equally through direct contact (eg handshake) and through aerosols – when droplets of infectious material remain in the air after vomiting. An unimaginably small infective dose of ten to 100 virus particles is sufficient to make a healthy person sick within a few hours.

The increase of outbreaks of diseases only on American passenger ships from 1996 (4 epidemics) to 2006 (34 outbreaks) is enormous. In the same year 2006, on 13 ships in European waters 35 outbreaks with 1,500 illnesses were registered. But not only the number of outbreaks, also the number of illnesses per 1,000 cruise participants has risen sharply in recent years. The index climbed from 0.6 in 2001 to 5.5 in 2004.

Nowadays, for a shipping company nothing is worse for the reputation than a number of Norovirus epidemics or other outbreaks on a luxury liner.
