Cleaning & Decontamination Services

Meridian’s in-house detailing team offers multiple layers of disinfecting and cleaning services to ensure the safety of your aircraft operation. First, we decontaminate the aircraft by placing our Air Purification Unit inside the cabin to run for one to two hours. The ionized particles immediately kill airborne and surface pathogens and viruses where they live. Upon completion, the cabin is ventilated with fresh air.

We then clean the entire aircraft interior by wiping down and disinfecting all areas using our EPA registered disinfectant (Celeste Sani-cide EX3, EPA Reg. #42048-4) which is also an all-purpose cleaner.

It is eco-friendly and will not adversely affect any interior surfaces. We finish the interior detailing by activating our ULV Fog System Treatment using Celeste Sani-cide EX3 to completely fumigate the atmosphere inside the aircraft. We then vacuum the entire interior.

As a further step, we use an anti-microbial barrier treatment (ClearCabin powered by PreventX) that has an efficacy of 90 days on all the high traffic touch points in the aircraft.

This provides you long-lasting protection. When applied, this treatment arrests the growth of microorganisms and harmful bacteria. Once the microbes come in contact with a treated surface, the cell walls are physically ruptured, thereby killing them. This treatment is effective against many enveloped and non-enveloped viruses, and gives you peace of mind in knowing that there is a system constantly working in the background that will protect everyone onboard.
