We have been listening to our customers and potential customers regarding their plans in the event of a confirmed case of COVID-19 in their office, school, surgery, shop or other business premises. We are currently setting up a ‘COVID-19 Deep Clean Team’, who will be kitted out with full PPE (personal protection equipment), given full training on how to clean and disinfect, use chemicals safely and ‘don’ and ‘doff’ (put on and remove) their PPE to avoid re-contamination. We held off jumping in immediately as we wanted to ensure we protected our staff and provided the right service which will be as effective as we can manage.
As of w/c 23rd March 2020, the UK has been on ‘lockdown’, meaning that there are less commercial premises open to the public or to staff. We expect the following situations:
- GP surgeries and other NHS hubs seeing COVID-19 patients will require regular COVID-19 deep cleans, potentially over night and at weekends in order to still provide a normal health clinic on the same site.
- Schools, offices, shops and critical premises who are still open may also require one off or regular Coronavirus deep cleans following confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19 attending their building.
- All commercial premises including but not limited to offices, shops, schools, nurseries, showrooms, dental practices, veterinary practices, GP surgeries once fully open may require deep cleaning following a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 entering their business. This majority is likely to be a way off, possibly a number of months. The virus is being slowed but is unlikely to be eradicated before the country starts moving again. Thinking about your cleaning requirements now is important to keep your staff and customers as safe and well as possible.
We are keen to hear from companies and organisations which are currently open with immediate requirements or likely requirements which will need to be carried out within the next 3 months.
We are also keen to hear from companies and organisations which are currently closed to staff and or public for the foreseeable future, with regards to what cleaning they will require upon their return.
In certain situations, cleaning companies will cease to operate if they are unable to weather this period, and there will likely be companies left with no daily commercial cleaning provision. We would also like to hear from these businesses and organisations.
Please feel free to give us any feedback on your likely expected requirements over the coming months.
Our dedicated ‘deep clean team’ are available by email on firstname.lastname@example.org. We will endeavour to come back to any questions asap. Please provide a phone number for us to phone you back if necessary.
