Why Deep Clean?
What the eye does not see, the heart does not have a chance to grieve…
People – from the CEO to the actual cleaning staff themselves – have a right to demand safe hygiene standards. Unfortunately there is evidence that the regular cleaning routine is often just a wipe over of the contact surfaces.
Ignoring deep cleaning means:
Surfaces are only disinfected until the chemicals applied have dried.
Contamination and infection increases, and is often unseen or ignored.
Internal and/or inaccessible areas and fittings are neglected.
Hygiene shortfalls for the your workforce and clients.
This means that periodical deep cleaning of amenities is essential to:
- Ensure – or establish – the upkeep of high hygiene standards.
- Provides a review of conditions and an inspection of systems and equipment.
- Brings it to a ‘start-up’ disinfection baseline.
- Comply with Local Health and Environmental demands
- Prevent blockages occurring and the associated costs of repairs and maintenance
- Eliminate malodours
- Ensure that the establishment is safe and clean for staff and clientele.
Before and After Deep Cleaning
First, we survey your establishment to write and agree a Scope of Work.
Second, we ensure that all surfaces and fittings, internally and externally, and waste drains (as far as accessible) are cleaned and disinfected.
Third, we chemically flush the systems for safe guarding and safe working in the environment we are working.
Fourth, we dismantle waste pipework to deep clean, making use of a puricator as necessary.
Finally, we reconnect pipework and test throroughly to ensure that systems are working properly.
We always work to an agreed scope of work so our prices are never a surprise.
We only invoice when you are completely satified that the specified scope of work is suitabley fit for purpose
We always deliver compliance to Local Health and Environmental and HSE demands
The Chemistry of Contamination
This is produced by the deposition of dissolved salts that are present either alone in the water supply such as limescale or in combination with uric salts. Limescale is almost ineffectively soluble in water and builds upon the exposed surfaces of urinals as the flush water evaporates. This natural development can be increased by the addition of warm urine. Further to the build-up of limescale, uric salts form encrustations on the toilet and urinal surfaces and can cause additional blockages.
Dependent on usage and cleaning regimes, such installations can become blocked but more frequently suffer high levels of unpleasant malodours. The odour is caused by a build of fats and yeast within the trap and pipework exacerbated by a progressive build-up of uric salts which have an amazing ability to adhere to plastic pipework as a hard and encrusted residue which can only be removed by dismantling the pipework.
With ever increasing pressure to reduce costs, the frequency and volume of water used to flush urinals are being reduced. The effect of this reduction as a cost-saving decision reduces the ‘flushing effect’ and therefore makes the problem worse. Motion detection controls can affect hygiene standards in the long-term.
After Deep Cleaning
Following our rigorous deep clean we recommend arresting infection with our Residual AntiBial Infection Prevention Barrier.
