Coronavirus – Deep Cleaning – Essex

In light of the current Coronavirus situation, Careclean would like to assure you that the health of both our staff and customers is top priority. As a cleaning company, hand washing and sanitation are part of our daily routine and we will continue to stay ever-vigilant over the coming weeks. We’ve put together this quick guide to let you know how Careclean are helping customers prepare for COVID-19.

So what do we need to know about Coronavirus?

Our suppliers at Alltec have been really helpful in educating us on viruses such as Coronavirus:

Coronavirus is an ‘enveloped’ virus. In basic terms, this means the virus is surrounded by an outer membrane or ‘envelope’, which allows the virus to attach to a host cell and replicate. However this envelope also makes the virus very fragile, which we can use to our advantage.

Enveloped viruses are vulnerable outside the body. They can easily be destroyed with disinfectant and hot water, which is why regular hand-washing is vital. It’s much trickier once the virus enters the human body, but by keeping our homes clean and safe, we can better protect our loved ones.

So what can we clean our homes with to help protect against viruses? Bleach is very effective against these kinds of viruses, but not particularly gentle on carpets and soft furnishings! Alcohol (such as in hand sanitisers) also works, but due to it evaporating quite quickly, it won’t provide long lasting protection. Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (QATs) however can be applied and left on the surface of carpets and upholstery and are able to penetrate viruses’ outer membranes.

Careclean’s Envirosafe Cleaner and Eco-Spotter both contain this vital ingredient. Better yet both products can be used on a whole range of surfaces (including carpets and soft furnishings) to help provide longer-lasting protection. These can be used – as part of a thorough deep cleaning process – in care homes, doctors’ surgeries, schools, and homes where virus and bacterial control is required.  It also must be stated that as it is so new, there isn’t currently a product out there that has been ‘proven’ to kill COVID-19, although as Alltec’s information above suggests, using the right products definitely improves our chances of tackling these kind of viruses.

Deep cleaning with Careclean

What is deep cleaning you might ask? There is a wide range of cleaning tools and equipment out there but Careclean use the top-of-the-range Truck Mounted Cleaning Machine. In a nutshell, this machine heats and shoots a specialist cleaning solution into your carpets and upholstery at high pressure to break up dirt and stains. Our machine then produces a large vacuum to draw the dirt and chemicals out of your carpets and upholstery. It also lifts the fibres to leave your upholstery with that ‘brand new’ finish.

Here’s what we can promise you:

  • We always disinfect all of our equipment before use and wear appropriate protective clothing where necessary.
  • Our cleaning machines are truck mounted, so will stay outside in the van when we are cleaning so you don’t need to worry about us bringing large equipment into your home.
  • We will frequently wash our hands. Each of our vans has a supply of Eco-Spotter which can be used if soap and hot water is not available.
  • At the present time, we will not shake your hand. As i’m sure you’ll agree, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
  • Our cleaning technicians are all fully trained, qualified and insured, so you can relax knowing you have the right people for the job.
  • We are closely following NHS and Government guidance on hygiene, self-isolating etc.
  • We will leave you a complimentary bottle of our Eco Spotter – read more below!

Free Sanitiser!

We have just received our monthly stock of Eco-spotter – which as well as being fantastic on spills and stains – also doubles up as a hand sanitiser and has proven to be effective against enveloped viruses such as Coronavirus. This antimicrobial, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal solution can be used on carpets, fabrics and hard surfaces (including door handles, work surfaces etc). Better yet it’s environmentally friendly, 100% natural, and safe to be used around children and pets.

We only have a small stock of these but will happily hand out 1 per customer until we run out – just mention it when booking your job. These usually cost £12.00 but in light of recent events will be giving them out free of charge. Just request one when booking your job and one of our cleaning technicians will bring it out to you when they come.
