CORONAVIRUS
DEEP CLEANING & DECONTAMINATION

React, Remove, Reassure

React Specialist Cleaning are experts in deep cleaning and decontamination services. Following evidence-based trials, we have developed specialist processes to eradicate SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus responsible for Covid-19).
 

Our services can be deployed in all commercial and public sector premises including hospitality, healthcare and public transport settings.
 

ATP Testing gives peace of mind

Much of the country has now cautiously reopened for business and commercial use. Still, many people are concerned, and they are right to be, routine cleaning is insufficient to eradicate the virus. So, along with specialist equipment, our highly-trained team use ATP Testing (adenosine triphosphate) before and after cleaning. The ATP test measures the presence of pathogens and demonstrates removal, offering our clients and their customers complete peace of mind.
 

Key steps of React’s Infection Control service

  1. Respond rapidly 24/7/365.

  2. Secure the area, protecting staff and public.

  3. Test for contaminants pre- and post-clean.

  4. Utilise superior quality PPE.

  5. Deploy BS EN 1276 chemical cleaners.

  6. Clean and thoroughly disinfect.

  7. Remove hazardous waste as a licensed waste carrier.

  8. Apply specialist cleaning expertise throughout.

 

From hospitality to hospitals, we do what others can’t do – going beyond cleaning to disinfect and decontaminate areas that have been exposed to coronavirus.

Experts in Covid-19 coronavirus cleaning, disinfection and decontamination

If your premises have been exposed to the Covid-19 coronavirus, then please contact us urgently for advice on the correct procedure to follow to prevent the disease from spreading.


We recommend regular deep cleaning and decontamination to restrict the risks posed by the virus.

Proper preparation for cleaning

Our team will arrive on-site following your instructions. They are trained to the highest standards and are security cleared. Our operatives will always act in a manner appropriate to working in or near public locations, and with discretion and respect.

The team lead will check and prepare sanitising equipment following the industry standards and will display warning signs near the area to be disinfected. We’ll make sure to complete risk assessments, COSHH assessments and method statements to be clear and transparent about what we’re doing.

The team will only enter a room once equipped with the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE); as a minimum, this comprises Hazmat Cat 3 suit, A1P2 mask and two pairs of disposable gloves.

Advanced products and processes during cleaning

At React, we use superior products that identify the presence of infections such as coronavirus (Covid-19) and measure the correct usage levels of sanitising agents. We follow rigorous health and safety guidelines for all coronavirus cleaning processes, adhering to rules around colour-coding, specialist equipment, protective clothing, use of fluids and disinfection methods.
 

All objects that are visibly contaminated, for example with body fluids, and all potentially contaminated high-contact areas such as toilets, door handles and telephones will be cleaned thoroughly and then disinfected correctly following recognised safety protocols.

Our team will deploy ULV (Ultra Low Volume) fogging and pump spraying where appropriate, always following agreed procedures and manufacturers’ recommendations.

ATP Testing proves decontamination

The most effective way to provide confidence that a property has been cleaned effectively is to test the surfaces for the presence of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).
 

ATP is an indicator molecule for the presence of biological residues. ATP testing is commonly used in the healthcare and food sectors.
 

We recommend ATP testing. Our team use it before and after all deep cleaning

Post-cleaning clear-up and paperwork

React is a licensed waste carrier, and we’ll dispose of any material contaminated with Covid-19 coronavirus, as well as all cleaning materials such as discarded single-use PPE, following strict government controls. The team lead will complete waste transfer notes or consignment notes depending on the waste which is generated and removed. Finally, we’ll get the work completion note signed by site staff, and where necessary, we’ll forward all appropriate paperwork to head office for processing.

We don't recommend the use of Ultraviolet light

There has been much speculation about using ultraviolet light (UV) to achieve decontamination. There have been reports of UV emitters being installed by certain organisations to disinfect skin, clothing and other objects.

However, the type of UV effective in killing the virus, UVC, is highly dangerous to humans. Indeed, the World Health Organization (WHO) has issued warnings against UV light being used to sterilise skin, as it can cause immediate and lasting damage.

We do not deploy UVC sterilisation during any part of our cleaning process.

What we know about this coronavirus

Covid-19 (the disease) is caused by SARS-CoV-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus Two).

Covid-19 has an incubation period of between 2 and 14 days. The primary symptoms that develop within 14 days are a continuous dry cough, difficulty in breathing, and a fever. Other reported symptoms have included loss of senses of taste and smell, chills, muscle pain, and headaches.

People with underlying health conditions and weakened immune systems, as well as older people, may experience more severe symptoms. People from BAME communities seem to be particularly affected.

Transmission

Transmission appears to occur during close contact with a symptomatic individual (i.e. within 2 metres), and the likelihood of communication appears to increase with extended exposure.

The primary means of transmission is airborne. SARS-CoV-2 can spread through droplets of respiratory secretions released from an infected person coughing or sneezing. A single cough can produce up to 3,000 droplets, some of which remain in the air for up to three hours. However, someone can also become infected by touching a surface that has been contaminated by an infected person. Most notably, droplets can land on surfaces from contact with the air or be transmitted directly from an infected person’s unwashed hands.

Initial studies into the Covid-19 coronavirus suggest it can survive on porous surfaces such as cardboard for 24 hours and on hard surfaces for up to three days. Therefore, there is a potentially high risk of contact transmission during the first 72 hours of environmental contamination.

Regular deep cleaning reduces risk

Daily deep cleaning and decontamination of frequently touched surfaces are one effective means of preventing the spread of the disease. In a range of commercial and public settings, the deep cleaning, disinfection and decontamination in React’s infection control service can help to return environments to a safe and usable condition.
