Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between regular cleaning and antiviral sanitisation?

Antiviral sanitisation includes the additional disinfection of surfaces after cleaning. This is the method that Public Health England recommends for areas contaminated with coronavirus (COVID-19).

We'll bring specialist virucidal cleaning products to your home, ensuring that 99.99% of bacteria and viruses are killed.

How does antiviral sanitisation work against coronavirus (COVID-19)?

COVID-19 is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. SARS-CoV-2 is an enveloped virus, which means it's coated by a lipid membrane. Our two-step cleaning and disinfection process works by breaking down the lipid membrane, which deactivates the virus.

How do I book an antiviral sanitisation clean?

You can request antiviral sanitisation cleaning as part of any one-off clean.

Antiviral santisiation must be booked as part of a full clean, because cleaning must be completed before the sanitisation process to maximise effectiveness.

What safety precautions will the antiviral sanitisation cleaners take?

Cleaners will follow the Public Health England guidelines on protective equipment and social distancing during all antiviral sanitisation cleans.

About antiviral sanitisation

Our antiviral sanitisation service can be added on to any end of tenancy, after builders or one-off deep clean.

During the visit, your property will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, with extra attention paid to high traffic areas and 'high touch' surfaces, including door handles and light switches. Carpet & upholstery cleaning, and chemical fogging, are also available as optional extras.

We'll use virucidal cleaning products during the clean, ensuring that we can thoroughly sanitise your home. We'll also provide a certificate after the clean confirming that an antiviral service was completed. 

We’re the UK’s market leader in cleaning services, having delivered over a million cleans, with an average rating of 4.9-stars. With our antiviral sanitisation service, you can be confident that your home will be thoroughly cleaned and decontaminated, minimising the risk of COVID-19.
