When best practice hygiene standards are non-negotiable

Initial works closely with our customers to ensure that the most effective hygiene solutions and services are in place to create the type of retail space the customer is now expecting. Our comprehensive approach to a full Hygiene 360 approach across washroom, surface, clinical waste, hands and air (both odour and transmission risk management) will help you meet the expectation from staff and customers that your retail environment is protected.

Complete on site hygiene audit

The experts at Initial will carry out an on premise audit for your retail business, assessing your hygiene protocols across surface, hand, air and the washroom. We will offer a no obligation report on how to ensure exceptional standards in hygiene are adopted throughout the retail space paying particular attention to higher areas of foot traffic and of course, the public washroom space

Exceptional standards of hygiene in the washroom

Poor perception of a dirty washroom reflects negatively on your brand and may discourage repeat traffic to your retail space. Ensure that your washroom represents a high commitment to better hygiene standards via hand hygiene solutions to clean air hand-dryers and touchless technology to manage sanitary waste.

Reduction in the risk of harmful transmission

Precautionary disinfection services help maintain high levels of hygiene. Our highly trained technicians provide professional, regular disinfection services to protect the environment against the spread of sickness and infection transmission.

Pioneering solutions

We bring the very latest in hygiene technology to market. Our innovation, science, biology and research terms collaborate to ensure that only solutions that carry the highest efficacy in reduction of harmful transmissions, are launched. From our Viruskiller air purification solutions to our HEPA based hand-dryers, we ensure that only devices that add value to protect people and enhance lives, form part of our hygiene offering.
