Corona Virus – Infection Control (Update)

As the last week has progressed it has become clear that we have a quickly evolving situation with Corona Virus, one which many of us have never experienced. We’re sure you’d agree the health of your staff and ours is of paramount importance, whilst continuing where possible to run our businesses efficiently.

In the event you have a suspected or confirmed case of COVID 19 amongst your organisation, we would ask you to inform us immediately, so that we can ensure best practice for our cleaning staff. We will of course inform you if your own cleaning operative is self-isolating.

If someone is suspected of having Corona Virus, The most recent advice from Public Health England can be found  here  and the advice on Decontamination in a non -healthcare setting indicates that a deep clean of the premises should be carried out, whether or not you decide to have a shutdown period. This recommended deep clean concentrates on the office and meeting room spaces, kitchen and washroom facilities.

We have at this current time, capability as a business to carry out such a deep clean, this would involve using single use PPE ( aprons, gloves, face masks) a clinical grade disinfectant (contains virucidal, bactericidal and fungicidal properties), additional cleaning operatives and time allocation. This would be quoted and invoiced as an additional one off charge.

In the meantime we recommend continuing stringent hand washing practices and you may wish to consider as some of our clients have, your own staff wiping hard surfaces such as desks, canteen tables and kitchen worktops throughout the day, after use, to minimise contact spread. We recommend the products below for this purpose and if you require any of these additional items please contact us.

As a company providing a cleaning service in many different business sectors, we thought it would be prudent to update you on the measures we are taking to  prevent the spread of Corona Virus or COVID19.  Whilst we believe there are many inaccurate and fear inducing media reports of this new virus, there are steps we can all take to minimise the risk to both ourselves and our employees. We would suggest you read advice and guidance from veritable sources, such as the links below.

We have had requests in the last 24 hours for antibacterial hand soap and hand gel, there is an increasing supply problem, even to a commercial company like ourselves, due to panic purchasing and stockpiling. We will of course endeavour to supply these as requested, but it is worth noting that this is a Virus, so antibacterial soap and gels will have no greater effect than a good handwashing technique with usual hand soap we supply.  

The best advice remains as below:

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • use hand sanitiser gel IF soap and water are not available
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
  • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

Our Staff have received this guidance to ensure that the routine cleaning is adhered to and they are following best practice.
