Contacting Peter Cox to disinfect your premises means that you can rely on us to:

  • Help prevent cross contamination
  • Provide all the necessary PPE, safety wear, and specialist disinfection equipment required for the job
  • Safely and legally dispose of any and all waste
  • Be available 24/7
  • Have a nationwide network of branches and local teams so that we can deliver our Coronavirus specialist disinfection services wherever you are in the country

Coronavirus Disinfection Assistance

Should there be a confirmed or suspected case of Coronavirus on your premises, then we can provide this service to you within 72 hours of the case being reported. We can assure you that the safety of our technicians and the wider general public is our primary concern, and as such our carefully risk assessed infection control measures go beyond the minimum World Health Organization (WHO) guidance. For example, our technicians use full face respirators rather than half face respirators to provide them with full protection.

Firstly, our colleagues who survey your site will be wearing the appropriate PPE and RPE,  and will be guided by the site-specific risk assessment, method statement and safe operating procedures generated at the time of survey.  Our technicians will then rigorously manually disinfect rooms and areas using a specialist disinfectant cleaning agent called Steri-7, which is known to kill up to 99.9999% of a broad range of pathogens within seconds of contact and has been tested against feline Coronavirus; a surrogate of Coronavirus*. This specially formulated micro emulsion technology applies an active barrier which can persist and kill for hours afterward. Our supplier's Laboratory testing showed the barrier killing microbes (including pathogens) 72 hours after application. So long as the barrier is not wiped away, our treatment provides residual protection and biosecurity reassurance between cleans. In some cases we may need to utlise Ultra Low Volume (ULV) disinfection fogging to treat large areas in a short space of time.

When dealing with cases that could potentially result in cross contamination, safe and legally compliant waste disposal becomes a critical factor. We can assure you that our disposal service complies with all health and safety and legal regulations and our disinfectant team follow the COVID-19: infection prevention and control guidance as set out by Public Health England. All waste will be handled as clinical waste and will be correctly segregated, transported and disposed of in line with clinical waste regulations.

Our colleagues will segregate waste on site, and collect it in specialist UN approved containers that are designed for the transportation of infectious waste. Our ADR licenced waste management technicians will then transport this for disposal by alternative treatment or incineration. Full traceability, in accordance with the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005 will be provided, including a hazardous waste consignment note.

Coronavirus Disinfection in Confirmed or Suspected Cases After 72 Hours

We can provide this service if you have had a confirmed or suspected case of Coronavirus on your premises and your building has been closed for 72 hours or more. Government guidance states that under most circumstances, after 72 hours the amount of infectious virus on any contaminated surface is likely to have significantly decreased, however when dealing with us you can still expect:

  • Technicians equipped with full PPE and RPE
  • A meticulous manual disinfection process using high-level surface disinfectant, with special attention given to key touchpoints like door handles and kitchen surfaces
  • ULV disinfection fogging when required
  • Safe and legally compliant waste disposal

All-Purpose Specialist Disinfection

Our specialist disinfection services are not limited to cases of confirmed or suspected Coronavirus. We routinely carry out disinfection services to help protect against microbial infection, and to assist you in maintaining first-class hygiene in the premises.
 
Given the high levels of importance we attach to conducting our services safely and comprehensively, we will approach these disinfection projects with:

  • The appropriate PPE and RPE clothing and equipment
  • The capabilities to deploy ULV disinfection when necessary
  • Manual targeted touchpoint cleaning when required
  • Safe and legally compliant waste disposal

Contingency Survey

Speed of service is understandably a major concern for many of our clients. This is why we provide a contingency survey service that allows us to gather key information in advance, helping us to respond quickly and more efficiently  in the event of Coronavirus being reported on your site.

Once the survey is complete, we will compile a report including site risk assessment, method statement and pre-authorised works information. It should be noted however, that this service is only applicable in instances where there have been no confirmed or suspected Coronavirus cases on site at the time of the survey.
