Clay Lacy offers base and mobile cleaning services

Clay Lacy team members are taking extra precautions.

Clay Lacy Aviation is now providing comprehensive aircraft cleaning and disinfecting services at the company's maintenance centres and through its mobile response teams.

Wearing full-body Tyvek suits, goggles, gloves and face masks, detailing experts use bipolar ionisation equipment and EPA-registered, aviation-approved products to clean and disinfect the aircraft interior. The procedure kills surface and airborne pathogens, bacteria and mould, removes odours, improves air quality and reduces static electricity, dust, pollen and smoke.

For clients who also require line maintenance, pre- or post-flight checks or return-to-service support after extended downtime, Clay Lacy mobile response teams can combine cleaning and disinfecting with maintenance requirements for easy scheduling and service.

Inside the cabin, a powerful ion distribution unit runs for one hour, producing up to two million positive and negative ions. This kills everything from COVID-19 and influenza viruses, to Staph and antibiotic-resistant bacteria, mould and other pathogens. No ozone is produced. The cabin is then sprayed with aviation-approved disinfectant and meticulously wiped down and dried. Leather surfaces are wiped down with an approved cleaner, and the entryway is sprayed with disinfectant and wiped down upon exit.

Cleaning and disinfecting services are provided at several Clay Lacy aircraft maintenance centres, and by its mobile response teams within 100 miles of its California and Washington locations.
