SERVICEMASTER – FIGHTING TO KEEP SWINE FLU AT BAY

Leading commercial and residential cleaning company ServiceMaster Clean is joining the fight against Swine Flu by protecting homes and businesses across the UK with its specialist cleaning products which can help to keep Swine Flu at bay.

Following news that Ministers have been asked to consider closing schools this autumn to help curb the number of swine flu infections, ServiceMaster Clean is recommending that schools use the summer holidays to safeguard class rooms in time for the new term.

Alan Lewin, Director at ServiceMaster says; “We have already been approached to go into several schools over the summer holidays to carry out deep cleans using our unique cleaning products and specialist cleaning procedures. Our anti-bacterial products work immediately and after application, the products can stay effective for up to 12 months to ensure a safe environment for the start of the new school year.”

Many of ServiceMaster Clean’s cleaning products contain a unique antimicrobial agent that prevents bacteria’s access to nutrients causing them to starve and die. Independently tested and approved by the NHS, their products are effective against bacterial nasties such as MRSA, E-Coli, C-Diff and Salmonella. ServiceMaster Clean has worked with closely with its suppliers to produce this range of products which can be used to clean surfaces, floors, carpets and upholstery in the home and workplace as well as public buildings including schools and hospitals.

Like all flu viruses, Swine Flu is spread when people cough or sneeze without covering their nose and mouth with a tissue. There is also a risk of transferring the infection when people cough or sneeze into their hand, as the germs are then easily spread from the hand to any hard surfaces, and they can live on those surfaces for some time. Everyday items such as door handles, computer keyboards, phones and TV remote controls are all common surfaces where flu viruses can be found. If other people touch these surfaces and then touch their faces, the germs can enter their systems and they can become infected.

ServiceMaster Clean’s products can help prevent the spread of these germs through touch. Coupled with proven cleaning procedures to ensure thorough cleaning ServiceMaster Clean can offer an invaluable service to both the homes of those people at particular risk of infection as well as public facilities such as schools, residential homes and social housing.

ServiceMaster Clean is experienced in combating virus epidemics including Norwalk outbreaks in hotels, schools, hospitals, coaches, residential homes and even cruise ships. I addition to providing a thorough decontamination clean, ServiceMaster Clean can also provide hand soap that uses the same technology as the cleaning products to continue the battle against the bugs.
