“New age of cleaning will be driven by emerging science and technology,” says Oakland
With Covid-19 expected to stimulate innovation in retail, leisure and workplace hygiene, Oakland Innovation says science-led approaches will underpin the efficacy of cleaning products and strategies.
Product development experts at Oakland believe heightened awareness of hygiene will continue beyond this pandemic to become a lasting trend. This will have implications for a wide range of settings as people return to work or education and resume leisure activities.
The pandemic has also driven extensive global research into the nature of the SARS-CoV-2 virus which causes Covid-19. Scientists are working to establish its survival on various materials and in different environments. Others are investigating the virus’ transferability to humans and the ability of cleaning products and strategies to inactivate it.
