With the largest regional teams in the UK, Rentokil Property Care has partnered with its sister business Rentokil Specialist Hygiene to deliver a fast response and a professional and legally compliant specialist disinfection service to help your business deal with Coronavirus.

Depending on your situation, we can provide the following disinfection services to help your business deal with the effects of Coronavirus.
We can provide the following services to help your business deal with the effects of Coronavirus.
In the event of a confirmed or suspected case of Coronavirus on your premises, we can provide you with a specialist disinfection service within 72 hours of the case being reported. The safety of our technicians and the general public comes first and foremost to us, and this is why our thorough risk assessed infection control measures go beyond the minimum requirements set by the World Health Organizations (WHO) guidance. As an example of this, our technicians use full face respirators instead of half face respirators to provide them with full protection.
Our technicians, upon arrival to your premises, will survey your site wearing appropriate protective PPE equipment. Specialist disinfection will be carried out by our team of technicians to any rooms and areas where there has been a suspected or confirmed Coronavirus infection using a combination of high-level surface disinfectant (Steri-7) and, if required, disinfection fogging (ULV) to disinfect across larger areas.
Steri-7 kills 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*. The Rentokil Disinfection service utilises specially formulated micro emulsion technology that applies an active barrier which can persist and kill for hours afterwards. 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.
Ultra low volume (ULV) disinfection fogging, which involves using a fogger to generate extremely small droplets of disinfectant fog, may also be used when required. All treatment recommendations will be discussed during the initial survey.
Any waste will be disposed of in a safe and legally compliant manner to prevent cross contamination and will follow the Coronavirus: 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 ADR licenced waste management technicians will then transport this waste for disposal by incineration. Full traceability, in accordance with the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005 will be provided, including a hazardous waste consignment note.
We also provide a specialist disinfection service for premises which may have been contaminated by any confirmed or suspected cases of Coronavirus more than 72 hours ago where government guidance indicates that the level of infectious virus on any infected surface is likely to have significantly decreased.
As with our service offered within the first 72 hours, our experienced technicians will apply appropriate PPE and RPE, then manually disinfect your premises using a high-level surface disinfectant and ULV disinfection fogging. As part of our disinfectant service, our technicians will clean any key touchpoints, including door handles and other hard surfaces to minimise the risk of infection.
All waste is removed from the site in accordance with the relevant waste management regulations.
If your premises has not had any confirmed or suspected cases of Coronavirus, our technicians can conduct our specialist disinfection service to protect your premises against microbial infection and help your premises maintain the highest levels of hygiene.
As with our Coronavirus specialist disinfection service, our technicians will still carry out an extensive service using appropriate PPE and RPE equipment before using disinfection fogging to disinfect your premises. As part of an optional service, our technicians can carry out manual disinfection to key touchpoints areas including door handles using high-level disinfectants.
For our customers where speed of service is essential during this time, Rentokil Property Care in partnership with Rentokil Specialist Hygiene will offer a contingency survey to allow us to gather essential information in advance to provide a rapid response in the event of Coronavirus being confirmed or suspected on your premises.
The completed survey report will be kept on file along with our site-specific risk assessment, a method statement and pre-authorises works information. Our contingency survey can only be completed if there are no suspected or confirmed cases of Coronavirus on your premises at the time of the survey.
