The 4th July 2020 is a very important day for many businesses in the Hospitality sector.
There is however anecdotal evidence that staff and customers are reluctant to return to ‘normal’ and are afraid of contracting the virus.
So how can we encourage staff to feel safe and customers to be confident enough start eating in restaurants and staying in hotels. This will be critical over the coming months as many businesses are un-viable operating at very reduced capacities.
It is fairly well accepted now that the best way to reduce the risks of COVID-19 is through increased hygiene measures and a robust policy of social distancing + testing.
Normally cleaners are kept out of sight but we would argue that at the moment it is very important for consumer confidence to have visible cleaning. This visible cleaning should be bolstered with regular ULV treatments using a disinfectant which kills coronaviruses on contact. Because the ULV (ultra-low volume machine) emits micro droplets in a fog, they penetrate surfaces where cleaning teams are unable.
These two combined services working hand in hand will help protect staff and customers through the next few months of difficult trading.
The ULV decontamination treatment is fast and relatively low cost in comparison to cleaning teams.
It provides peace of mind for the cleaning teams, the rest of your staff and your customers and shows that your hygiene regimes are robust and that you as a business are doing everything you can to protect them.
NOTE: There are numerous companies on the internet purporting to provide services and products which allegedly protect against COVID-19 for 30+ days. As an innovative and responsible company we have investigated some of these products to see if we can verify the claims. Unfortunately, as of writing we have not found a product which we believe will in fact protect for 30 + days and we would urge companies to conduct their own proper due diligence before using them.
