Coronavirus Containment and Control Assistance

With the largest regional teams in the UK, Rentokil Specialist Hygiene are able to deliver a fast response and a professional and legally compliant service. Depending on your situation, we can provide assistance with Coronavirus containment and control, as well as an all-purpose specialist disinfection of your premises. 

Our experienced RSPH accredited technicians are equipped with the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE), respiratory protective equipment (RPE) and specialist disinfection equipment, to carry out our specialist cleaning and disinfection service options safely and effectively.


Specialist Disinfection to Assist With Coronavirus Containment and Control

Provided in the event of a confirmed or suspected case of Coronavirus on your premises, within 72 hours of the case being reported. Our technicians' safety and the safety of the general public is of paramount importance to us, and is why our carefully risk assessed infection control measures go beyond the minimum World Health Organization (WHO) guidance. For example, our technicians use full face respirators rather than half face respirators for full protection. 

Rentokil Specialist Hygiene first surveys your site wearing the appropriate PPE and RPE,  and will be guided by the site-specific risk assessment, method statement and safe operating procedures generated at the time of survey. 

Our technicians then meticulously disinfect areas and objects that pose a threat of cross contamination using Steri-7, a high-level surface disinfectant. Steri-7 kills up to 99.9999% of a broad range of pathogens within seconds of contact and has been tested against feline Coronavirus; a surrogate for Coronavirus. Our service utilises specially formulated micro emulsion technology that applies an active barrier which can persist and kill for hours afterward. Our supplier’s laboratory testing showed the barrier killing microbes (including pathogens) 72 hours after application.  So long as the barrier is not wiped away, our treatment provides residual protection and biosecurity reassurance between cleans.* Additional ultra low volume (ULV) disinfection fogging is also used when required, to allow for the treatment of large areas in a short space of time. 

It is extremely important that any waste be disposed of in a safe and legally compliant manner, to help ensure that there is no further cross contamination. Rentokil Specialist Hygiene follows the COVID-19: infection prevention and control guidance as set out by Public Health England. All waste will be handled as clinical waste and will be correctly segregated, transported and disposed of in line with clinical waste regulations. 

Rentokil Specialist Hygiene segregates waste on site, and collects it in specialist UN approved containers that are designed for the transportation of infectious waste. Our ADR licenced waste management technicians will then transport this for disposal by incineration. Full traceability following the Carrier Regulations will be provided, including a hazardous waste consignment note.

Specialist Disinfection When a Confirmed or Suspected Coronavirus Case is Older Than 72 Hours

This specialist disinfection service is reflective of government guidance, stating that under most circumstances, the amount of infectious virus on any contaminated surface is likely to have significantly decreased after 72 hours. We provide this service when there is  a confirmed or suspected case of Coronavirus on your premises and your building has been closed for 72 hours or more. 

Our experienced technicians apply full PPE and RPE, then disinfect key touchpoints in your premises, such as door handles, light switches and kitchen surfaces, to help minimise the risk of microbial transfer. ULV disinfection fogging is also carried out, which involves using a fogger to generate extremely small droplets of disinfectant fog, to help ensure that all necessary areas are disinfected. All waste is removed from the site following relevant guidance and legislation.

All-Purpose Specialist Disinfection

If there are no confirmed or suspected cases of Coronavirus on your site, we can carry out a specialist disinfection service to help protect against microbial infection, and to help you maintain a high level of hygiene in your premises. 

Our experienced technicians apply the appropriate PPE and RPE before using ULV disinfection fogging to disinfect your premises. This allows for large areas to be treated quickly and efficiently, as the extremely small droplets of the disinfectant fog settle underneath, on top of and on the sides of many objects and inaccessible areas. There is also the option for our technicians to carry out targeted touchpoint cleaning, which can include the cleaning of door handles, light switches and kitchen surfaces, using a high-level disinfectant. Full, safe and legally compliant waste disposal is also provided.

Contingency Survey

For customers where speed of service is essential, we offer a contingency survey to allow us to gather key information in advance, so that we can react quickly in the event of Coronavirus being reported on your site. The survey is completed and a report is kept on file, along with a site-specific risk assessment, a method statement and pre-authorised works information. This can only be completed when there are no suspected or confirmed cases of Coronavirus on site at the time of the survey.
