Police Cell Cleaning: Poor Hygiene Takes No Prisoners

Spending the night in a police cell is a sobering thought.

Aside from the obvious gloom associated with being banged up, a jail cell can also be the scene of some heinous hygiene crimes.

However, with over one million arrests made in England and Wales each year, it’s undeniably challenging to keep cells free from dangerous biohazards.

Indeed, if detainees defecate or urinate out with the facilities provided, this poses a high risk of infection from exposure, with immediate attention required to avoid the associated health problems.

Consequently, specialist cell cleaning should be performed quickly and efficiently.

Other bodily fluids such as blood and vomit may also be found following an arrest or dirty protest. Again, these fluids can harbour infectious diseases and should be cleaned up in a safe and controlled manner.

Rapid Response to Hazardous Incidents Is Crucial

In addition, walls, ceilings and other fixtures within the cell can be affected, with dirty protests also performed in communal toilet or shower areas.

At Rentokil Specialist Hygiene, we understand how crucial it is that prison cells and communal areas are available and operational efficiency is unaffected – which is why we offer a rapid response to these types of hazardous incidents.

This ensures the affected areas are safely decontaminated and disinfected, with all harmful bodily fluids removed and suitably disposed, meaning your operation can get back to normal with minimal disruption.
