After a very challenging 18-months, pretty much all COVID restrictions in England have finally been lifted. For many, this is cause for celebration. After all, our usual freedoms have been curtailed for so long. Everyone is ready for some normality.
Putting the pandemic behind us
Elevating the status of our industry
The cleaning and hygiene sector is now firmly in the spotlight. However, changing perceptions about our industry has to come from within, explains James White, Managing Director of Denis Rawlins Ltd.
Log counts: Why they matter in the battle against pathogens
When shopping around for a cleaning product, one of the most important qualities is the kill rate. People want to know how effective it will be and scour the shelves or search providers for bottles promising at least 99.9% efficacy.
But what does this percentage actually mean?
Reopening the school gates with confidence this spring
The school gates have reopened once again across England, with all children returning to the classroom after months of national lockdown. As we embark on step one of the Government’s roadmap out of hibernation, there is a general feeling of optimism amongst the public. However, as it becomes increasingly evident that we will be living alongside COVID-19 for many years to come, the loosening of restrictions must be met with caution, if we want to avoid another devastating surge of infections.
How do I make sure my building is clean, safe and infection free for opening after lockdown?
It is not difficult to make sure your building is very clean, even near sterile, therefore safe to reopen and retain the confidence of staff and customers.
We all know that cleanliness is now more important than ever, post COVID-19, our staff and customers will be looking to us, the facilities owners, to give them the confidence to return.
Combining surface and air innovations for a complete COVID-secure clean
We’re starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. The vaccine rollout has gained great momentum and infection levels are continuing to fall as a result. As the Government cautiously begins to lift lockdown, there is a clear route out of a crisis that has gripped our lives for the past year.
Safe Space, Safe School
With news of the latest national lockdown across the UK still ringing in our years, who would’ve thought at the beginning of all this that the pandemic would carry over into 2021? Unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to affect our daily lives, especially school students.
What COVID-19 has taught us during 2020
I think the greatest lesson that we have learned all over the world in 2020 is about adapting to change. COVID-19 forced our hands and made us interact with our built environment very differently.
Reassuring Retail – Opening the Doors Safely
We’ve been down this road before. Back in the spring of 2020 during our first quarantine, it was the most disturbing interruption to UK business ever seen, at least since the war.
Why healthcare infection control has never been more vital
Healthcare settings are typically thought of as safe places. They are where you go when you are unwell and need medical attention, and they help people get better, not worse.
But what happens when an infectious virus breaks out, and these locations suddenly become compromised? And even more concerning, what do we do when they become responsible for the spread of the infection?
