Has anyone had any calls for this yet? Fears of out break so called in to do a deep clean sanitising everything?

If so, any word on the products that's being recommend to be used for this?

Nick and Ken will tell you the official answer; but Soluclear would be the early favourite.

I suppose it would be difficult to give an official answer unless the product has been specifically tested with the coronavirus in mind. As far as my own personal research has gone there isn't a hard and fast official answer however as Luke mentioned biocides and disinfectant. Soluclear does seam to tick all the boxes and looks like it has what it takes for good all-round health and hygiene. I will be ordering some next week.

IMO, unless you are cleaning the WHOLE house, carpet cleaning will never be able to sanitise the building. For treating carpets with a certified product, you need to use Solu-Clear as suggested by others. Otherwise, for synthetics there's the SPM family (contains a biocide) and for natural fibres, M Power.

Safe and happy cleaning:smile:

You would also need a certificate of completion, COSHH method statements etc to protect you from liability

If you offer anything other than cosmetic cleaning you need to know and follow hse rules and regulations and be able to produce the relevant documentation on completion

There are whole courses for this type of thing as usual

If it starts spreading around en mass we'll all have potential exposure to it on entering any household.

People won't want any service coming to their house, more for fear us infecting them or vice versa, lets see what happens in the coming weeks :popcorn:

For floor mopping , hot or cold also dilution rates for mopping ie 5 ltr bucket

General surface cleaning , again hot or cold

What can it be used on or more like what can it not be used on ie marble worktops , stainless steal etc etc

The information regarding lifespan, what products work is really sketchy, there has been articles saying standard products are not working, time of life may be greater, there is simply no good information out there, also would you not be using fogging style machines for decontamination as opposed to spray and wipe method that appears to be the method I have seen being used by companies that have already don e it on the news ect.

Probably a little late to reply on this thread. We have a commercial cleaning business cleaning Offices and a few medical centres. Currently our offices are closed but luckily we have our medical centers which are keeping us busy!!. to answer your Question on Cleaning we have been told to use a chlorine based product at a 1000ppm. were using chlor clean as advised by PHE and NHS guidelines. Corona virus is an enveloped virus which has a lipid layer so please make sure your using the correct solution as some disinfectants are not strong enough to break down the layer. you can use a natural cleaner first to help break down the barrier but ensure you have the product on for a long enough contact time. All of this is precautionary measures and will hopefully reduce the risk but they are still not sure if its the correct solution as they have no evidence other than offering the same guidance as was used for SARS and MERS.. They also recommend steam cleaning soft furnishings and also using disposable cloths. Also ensure method, Risk and COSHH statements have been drawn up to protect yourselves. Take care and stay safe xx
