Town & Country Cleaning recently helped reopen a high-profile school using the very latest specialist technology (electrostatic-sprayer) and disinfectant chemical specifically designed to tackle the threat of Coronavirus.

This electrostatic spraying technology delivers a precise application of disinfectants with x3 the coverage compared to traditional sprayers, wipes or cloths. The risk of infection is high. Tests have proven that in just a few hours, viruses can spread to 60% of a building’s occupants from a single door handle.

Lee Turner, Managing Director of Town & Country Cleaning said, “it is important everyone remains balanced yet proactive in their response to Coronavirus. Everyone has a responsibility to manage their personal hygiene including frequently washing their hands and using hand sanitiser”.

“Organisations need to consider their duty of care for everyone on their premises. This includes having a risk assessment and hygiene plan, increasing hygiene measures and commissioning a preventative contingency deep clean as and when required. It means thinking about everyone who enters the building and not just employees, and doing more than simply emailing cleaning companies to take responsibility. In many cases, the cleaning company is contracted for general cleaning, and the customer needs to consider having hygiene product and cleaners assigned or reassigned to sanitising high-touch areas”.  

Town & Country Cleaning has produced a helpful guide to dealing with Coronavirus covering subjects from where to get the latest information and advice from government, cleaning products to use to combat the spread of Coronavirus, and best practice for a Coronavirus deep clean.

Containment & Prevention 

Containment and prevention of passing on Coronavirus is paramount, with the following general health advice:

1) regularly wash hands (20-30 seconds per wash)

2) use hand sanitiser throughout premises including entry/exit

3) frequently use a personal hand sanitiser gel

4) promote “Catch it…Bin it…Kill it”

5) increase daytime housekeeping focused on hygiene cleaning on high-touch areas, e.g. handles, rails, surfaces etc

6) for higher-risk environments, consider added personal protection including wearing a face mask (eg. 3M 9332 FFP3)

7) have a preventative contingency plan if the situation escalates, including using the very latest electrostatic-sprayer cleaning process in a “deep clean”

Cleaning Products (Prevention)

Cleaning solutions specifically recommended to reduce the threat of Coronavirus include using products such as Selden Selgiene Extreme, Selden Selgiene Ultra, Selden Spray & Wipe, and strong bleach-based disinfectants that kill 99.9% of bacteria.
