If there is anything that we can take for granted this year, it is that business continuity is something that we can’t take for granted. Back in January 2020, most business’s biggest worry was the economic impact that Brexit would have on their commercial future. Ten months on and the future prospects of many businesses have changed forever thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Those businesses that are still up and running are caught up in a frenzy of COVID-19 cleaning to ensure that their people and customers are in as safe an environment as possible.
The sad reality of this pandemic is that many firms have gone out of business due to the forced closure of 2 lockdowns. However, for those companies that are weathering the storm so far, there is still a real threat of operational interruption as the virus continues to spread. There are companies that operate in sectors that have been pretty much “business as usual” since COVID-19 changed our lives: sectors such as construction, non-essential retail and healthcare, and others that just can’t offer work from home options to their teams.
All of these places of work have stepped up their COVID-19 cleaning efforts with particular attention being placed on high touch point areas, such as door handles, switches, portable phones and the like. Other areas that present a challenge include staff canteens and toilets. Covid-19 cleaning on Construction sites includes the added complication of shared plant machinery and shared tools.
COVID-19 Cleaning Services
Thankfully we can offer COVID-19 cleaning services to help remove the headache from your shoulders and allow you to focus on the business of running your business. Besides our day to day cleaning services, at Ascent Onsite Services we understand the distinction between simply cleaning, and disinfecting, and have gone one step further to provide specialist COVID-19 cleaning to give your company peace of mind.
Deep cleaning is a necessary first response to a possible outbreak of COVID-19 in your workplace. Different from regular daily cleaning, it focuses on disinfecting the areas where an infected person has been, paying particular attention to those areas which may not normally be tackled on regular cleans. These include areas behind equipment, underneath chairs and tables, and all other areas using more focused disinfectants.
COVID-19 Fogging Services
Fogging allows for whole room disinfection and decontamination, that can disinfect all surfaces of COVID-19 and other infectious bacteria, within thirty-five to forty-five minutes. This process provides added peace of mind, to compliment your regular cleaning regime, or can be carried out as a one-off exercise following a possible outbreak on site, subsequent to a deep clean.
The powerful disinfectants that we use are distributed throughout space as a fine mist, that coats all surfaces that it comes into contact with. It is completely safe to resume work in the space within forty-five minutes of the mist being applied and is safe for use around all electrical office appliances. The disinfectant is 99.99% effective at killing multiple viruses, including COVID-19.
We can provide these services out-of-hours including early mornings, nights and also weekends. This flexibility ensures that our services have no impact on your company operations. Having said that, we can also work around your teams during office hours. All our cleaning operatives are trained in the most current health & safety methods.
