Academy Services helping tourism and hospitality sector get back to business with specialised COVID-19 cleaning

As restrictions on travel have been lifted in Queensland, one Sunshine Coast business is taking innovative measures to ensure the safety of customers and staff.

Among measures taken by Sunreef Mooloolaba, the home of aquatic adventure, is a non-toxic and non-flammable infection-control solution that kills COVID19, along with other dangerous pathogens, in just 30 seconds.

The product, Nanocyn, was recently approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) as killing SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 virus), making it the fastest all-natural, non-toxic disinfectant of its type. It is delivered by 40-year-old cleaning company Academy Services.

Sunreef Mooloolaba owner Dan Hart said tourism was a vital part of the Queensland’s economy and as part of that industry, they were doing everything possible to look after the health and safety of their guests.

“We have implemented a comprehensive COVID-19 infection-control plan and have included Nanocyn, as part of our response, on our vessels and at the Dive Centre,” Dan said.

“Its non-toxicity means a newly cleaned area can be occupied immediately after fogging.

“Sunreef has adjusted operations and reduced the number of guests on its tours and is looking forward to relaunching all diving as well as its Whale Watching season on 13th June, a fortnight after the normal start of the normal whale watching season.

“Whale One is ready to go for another great season and we can’t wait to greet guests and take them out to the whale highway where more than 35,000 whales are expected to migrate through Sunshine Coast waters during this year’s season.”

Academy Services’ Mel Blacklock spray The Dock Mooloolaba restaurant with Nanocyn to kill COVID-19 and other pathogens.

The Dock Mooloolaba, a dynamic 350m2 restaurant also at Mooloolaba is another business that has incorporated Nanocyn as part of their COVID-19 response.

The Dock Mooloolaba general manager Jaime Badia said while they had closed the restaurant, they launched takeaway and Heat & Eat packages to assist customers and were delighted to now be welcoming limited numbers of guests back to dine in.

“We are going over and above all the guidelines as part of our COVID-19 response and the Nanocyn fogging is part of that,” Jaime said.

Academy Services Chief Executive Officer James Pollock said products such as the TGA-approved Nanocyn give peace of mind that business is safely managing life after lockdown.

“Our business is on the frontline of the COVID19 battle using TGA-approved Nanocyn, including some sites where COVID19 was present, or was suspected of being present,” Mr Pollock said.

“The world has entered a new age in infection control, where next-level cleanliness is the norm and business must put cleaning and infection control to the forefront of their safety plans, working with trusted and experienced partners for the benefit of their staff and clients.”
