Many businesses are taking measures to ensure that their workforce can reduce the risk of contracting Covid-19 (or Coronavirus), by working from home if possible. As the government have advised, this is a sensible measure in the current situation, but it is not an option for all businesses. For example; care homes, childcare facilities, healthcare providers and many, many more. For these organisations as well as ourselves, it’s business as usual!

Our Staff are fully trained and Qualified in Infection Control & Fogging.

We wear full PPE (personal protective equipment).

We are fully insured.

Our core services are based around sanitising both domestic and commercial spaces, which at this time is in even higher demand. Our staff have always done an excellent job of maintaining extremely high levels of hygiene. We carry sanitising products with us that we also use to treat hospitals and care homes, utilising industry-leading products and techniques to provide the best level of clean possible. We cannot be more clear-- there is no magic formula you can use to sanitise an area to keep the germs from coming back, keeping an area sanitised requires thorough and regular cleaning (even more regular than your usual cleaning routine). There is currently a lot of misinformation circulating regarding cleanliness and Covid-19 (coronavirus), but as cleaning professionals, we know what level of cleanliness is required.

Cleaning can be broken down as:

General Cleaning -  removes germs and dirt from surfaces. Using detergent and water to clean surfaces doesn't KILL GERMS, but removing them lowers their numbers. Surfaces should always be cleaned before you disinfect them.

Disinfecting  - KILLS GERMS on surfaces. After first cleaning a surface you then disinfect it. Killing germs lowers the risk of infection. To properly disinfect, the disinfecting solution need to remain on a surface for a specific amount of time (depends on manufacturers’ instructions).

Sanitising - also KILLS GERMS, but not as many as disinfecting. Some products are capable of doing both, but disinfecting requires a bit more work.

If you have a cleaning service at the moment, it’s time to up your level of clean and ensure they are attending more regularly and carrying out more deep clean operations, if you don’t have a cleaning service currently or haven’t had your carpets, upholstery, or hard floor cleaned recently then you’ve come to the right place! We are already used to dealing with sanitising both domestic and commercial spaces and we are trauma trained, so you can be sure your property is in safe and very experienced hands.

We are also ensuring we have a good level of both staffing and high-quality cleaning products to be able to manage the increased workload we expect to see over the next few weeks and months. I would also like to reassure you all that all our cloths used are clean, all dirty cloths are separated from clean ones and disinfected thoroughly at the end of each day. Our staff will wash their hands thoroughly before leaving every premise and may ask to use your facilities to wash their hands at your property. We also use separate shoes when carrying out the clean in your property and ensure we use sanitising and safe products when completing the clean. All of our equipment is regularly sanitised and we are doing everything we can to ensure best practice is followed, as well as providing excellent cleaning results.

Contact us on hello@acleaningservice.co.uk and we can help put a regimented cleaning plan in place for you, but in the meantime, we would advise that you ensure you are following these essential rules...

  1. Avoid sharing telephone handsets
  2. Wash hands regularly for a minimum of 20 seconds and avoid touching the face
  3. Keep your own supply of tissues and hand sanitiser (if available, but remember washing your hands is more effective anyway)
  4. Have your own mug at work that only you use if you are not self-isolating at home
  5. Clean your smart phone (Apple said this week that disinfectant wipes are OK to use on iPhones)

The health and well-being of our customers and staff is a priority, so if anyone in your household or place of work is displaying symptoms, we ask that you advise of this before our staff enter your property or premises.

And finally #StaySafe
