Facilities management firm, Polyteck Group, has launched a new deep cleaning and sanitation division aimed at servicing the residential and commercial sectors it operates in.
The move aims to tackle the increasing need for enhanced cleaning and hygiene services during and post the Covid-19 crisis.
The bespoke service will be delivered using specialist cleaning equipment, such as fogging machines, to ensure the safety and cleanliness of buildings and circulation spaces for occupants and visitors.
Polyteck’s sanitisation process will include full V1 Viricidal sanitising for all surfaces. These focus on touch points such as equipment, furniture, doors, handles, switches, buttons, floors, kitchens and toilets.
The sanitisation process includes a full fogging process, using powerful germicides and sanitisers to keep a room sterilised for up to seven days. The sprayed product produces a mist to ensure appropriate dwell time and, as it is fogged, it fills the air, envelopes furnishings and clings to surfaces resulting in a thorough application which does not need to be wiped off or hand cleaned.
As part of its service, Polyteck will also be offering Covid-19 sampling to clients and customers, which will enable businesses to take swabs from surfaces directly to identify contamination. These swabs will be sent to specialist laboratories and assessed.
Guy Goodall, Director, Polyteck, said: “The Covid-19 pandemic continues to unfold around us, and we are learning something new every day. While the science regarding how the virus impacts the body changes daily, we do know that regularly cleaning and disinfecting high touch surfaces has been considered an important precaution to lower the risk of infection from the beginning.
“Our new dedicated cleaning division offers our clients the reassurance that this vital function is carried out well and often.”
Polyteck will be using its existing team of qualified cleaners and technical staff, as well as new recruits brought on board to deliver the new services.
