Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update:
We at Clean as a Whistle Dorset fully understand this current pandemic is a emotional roller-coaster for all of us, with our nations health and well-being at the forefront of everyone’s minds. As we have discovered over the last few weeks, Coronavirus is a very contagious and transferable disease. We have all become very adept at washing our hands, coughing & sneezing into our elbows and keeping a good distance from others.

But what are we doing about the external hard surfaces around our homes and businesses? We are all concerned about staying safe and protecting ourselves by social-distancing, but it is often easy to forget that COVID-19 can hang around on inanimate surfaces when no other people are around. Park benches, picnic tables, children’s play areas, outdoor seating, metal handrails, bus shelters, gates, shopping trollies, handles & even your doorbell are just some of the things we can quite easily come into contact with, often without thinking of the consequences.

Results from over 22 medical studies state that COVID-19 can persist on inanimate surfaces, like metal, glass or plastic for up to 9 days. On more porous surfaces such as wood, stone, brick, patios, garden furniture and general hard surfaces COVID-19 can persist between 3-5 days. On 18th February 2020, the European Centre for Disease Control released a circular citing the effective use of Sodium Hypochlorite in combating COVID-19. It is known by the UK, USA & European Governments to effectively destroy Corona Virus within 1 minute of it coming into contact with an infected surface. Waiting 9 minutes more, they will be super clean to boot!

Alongside pressure washing, Clean as a Whistle Dorset has already been using a Sodium Hypochlorite based solution called Monty Miracle Solution - https://www.montymiracle.co.uk/ and as Dorset’s only user of this product is perfectly placed to deep clean the external hard surfaces around your business and home and ensure that they are 100% safe from any harmful bacteria or viruses.
