Essential environmental and surface hygiene

Our range of innovative surface hygiene services give you peace of mind that you are able to keep your employees and customers safe.

Surfaces that are directly touched by the skin, notably the hand, can be a source of transmission to staff and customers. Frequently touched surfaces can become increasingly contaminated and have a greater risk of transmission if no remedial action is taken to reduce cross-contamination. Every area in your business should be disinfected and cleaned thoroughly and regularly.

The coronavirus is affecting every business around the world. To get back to business and to prevent cross-contamination and the spread of germs, businesses need the correct hygiene protocols in place.

It’s important that you keep your staff and customers safe, minimise risk and create hygienic environments across your facility. Their awareness of the importance of hygiene will have increased over the last few months and your business will need to provide reassurance and cater for these increased expectations.


Providing effective surface hygiene solutions

To ensure cleanliness and stop the spread of infections, your business can take measures to reduce the risks of contamination so that the premises are in a suitable condition for staff and customers.

Surfaces in a building can become hotspots for cross-contamination of germs if they are not regularly wiped and disinfected. Particular attention needs to be paid to:

  • communal areas, such as washrooms, canteens, receptions, kitchens, elevators, changing rooms
  • frequently touched objects and surfaces, such as door handles, floors or equipment and machinery
  • office areas including workstations, desks and storage areas

Using an integrated approach to hygiene – involving a number of interventions to minimise cross contamination risk along the journey of the germ – is the most effective way to limit the spread of harmful germs.

Did you know that traditional cleaning methods in the washroom fall short when it comes to eliminating tough germs, odours and bacteria? Of all cleaning techniques, steam is the most effective to remove odour, bacteria and germs.

Intensive Steam Hygiene Treatments work well as a once-off, supported by an Essential Hygiene maintenance program.
