Surface disinfection and hygiene solutions for your business

Initial offers a range of surface hygiene solutions which include wipes, sprays and disinfection services to help stop the spread of bacteria and viruses, protecting your people and premises.

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 to help improve hygiene and reduce staff absenteeism.


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.

Surface sprays and wipes 

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

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

Initial’s Ultraprotect sprays and wipes can kill up to 99.99% of feline coronavirus (a surrogate virus for coronavirus). They're also long lasting – offering up to 24 hours of continuous protection on hard surfaces by creating an invisible barrier to prevent germs multiplying.
