Our Police and Prison Cell Disinfection Service

Our team of Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) accredited technicians are fully equipped with the necessary personal protective equipment and specialist disinfection equipment to help support prisons and the police force with expert disinfection treatments for prison and police cells. We can provide comprehensive deep cleaning to disinfect all areas and can use Ultra Low Volume (ULV) disinfection fogging, which sprays extremely small droplets of a disinfectant that can settle on top of and on the sides of many objects and inaccessible surfaces that may not be reached using conventional cleaning methods. 

We also offer a range of services in line with government guidelines to help minimise the spread of infection during the Coronavirus outbreak:

1. Confirmed Coronavirus Case Within 72 hours

Provided in the event of a confirmed or suspected case of Coronavirus in your prison or police station, when it is essential that you reopen the area within 72 hours of the case being reported.

2. Confirmed Coronavirus Case Over 72 hours

We provide this service when there is a confirmed or suspected case of Coronavirus and the area has been closed for 72 hours or more.

3. All-Purpose Specialist Disinfection

We can carry out a specialist disinfection cleaning service to help protect against microbial infection and to help you maintain a high level of hygiene in your prison or police station.

Why is Specialist Cleaning for Police Holding Cells and Prison Cells Required?

In the UK, Custody Sergeants are responsible for the welfare of the arrested individuals and detainees during their time in custody, which includes providing a hygienic prison or holding cell.

  • Detainees can perform “dirty protests” within their cells, which can involve them defecating or urinating in the cell without using the facilities provided. Other bodily fluids such as blood and vomit can also be present within the cell following an arrest or dirty protest. These bodily fluids can harbour infectious diseases and need to be cleaned up in a safe and controlled manner to prevent infection..

  • Walls, ceilings and other fixtures and fittings are often affected and it is often not just contained within the confines of the individual’s cell. Information suggests that dirty protests are also frequently performed in the communal areas such as the toilets and shower areas.

  • Due to the confined nature of prison cells  and the communal areas such as the toilets and showers, the rapid decontamination and disinfection of this type of risk is extremely important to prevent a spread of disease or infection occurring. It is also critical that the amount of time these areas are unavailable for is reduced to a minimum, to help ensure operational efficiency is not affected.
