Clay Lacy Launches Aircraft Cleaning & Disinfecting Services

Clay Lacy Aviation now provides comprehensive aircraft cleaning and disinfecting services at the company’s maintenance centers and through its mobile response teams. Wearing full-body Tyvek suits, goggles, gloves and face masks, detailing experts use bipolar ionization equipment and EPA-registered, aviation-approved products to clean and disinfect the aircraft interior.

The procedure kills surface and airborne pathogens, bacteria and mold, removes odors, 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.

Rigorous Cleaning and Disinfecting Process
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, to mold 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. ©Dylan Patrick Photography Inc.
