Vanguard Cleaning Management Solutions Ltd would like to re-assure all clients that in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are following the PHE advice and thereby making sure our clients and staff stay safe by putting all the necessary measures in place to ensure this advice is followed.
Vanguard remains open as a vital service during this challenging time. Our main office will be manned by a skeleton staff, all managers will be available via their mobiles and email addresses.
All cleaning services for our clients that remain open, will continue until further notice.
As leaders in the medical cleaning field we are pleased to say that the chemicals, equipment and protocols that we use now have been used for many years already. As a result of this we are not having to be reactive at this time of extreme pressure but purely consolidate what we already do.
Our chemicals are suitable for purpose and details of these can be found on your web portal which you have access to. We also have access to chlorine based chemicals 1000ppm if and when required and recommended by PHE.
Regarding PPE our staff have been instructed to always wear gloves and change these as frequently as necessary washing hands each time they do so. We do not use face masks in anything other than exceptional extreme cleaning, situations. All sound scientific evidence suggest that these can be detrimental to the wearer unless in certain situations.
We are offering a deep cleaning service in situations when Coronavirus is either proven or highly likely to be present. Please contact us for further details about this.
Our staff have been instructed on the following PHE guidelines :-
Wash your hands frequently
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based gel if your hands are not visibly dirty. Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcoholbased hand rub eliminates the virus if it is on your hands.
Practice respiratory hygiene
When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – discard tissue immediately into a closed bin and clean your hands with alcohol-based hand gel or soap and water. Covering your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing prevent the spread of germs and viruses. If you sneeze or cough into your hands, you may contaminate objects or people that you touch.
Maintain social distancing
Maintain at least 2 metre (6’ 6”) distance between yourself and other people, particularly those who are coughing, sneezing and have a fever. When someone who is infected with a respiratory disease, like coronavirus cough or sneeze they project small droplets containing the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the virus.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Hands touch many surfaces which can be contaminated with the virus. If you touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your contaminated hands, you can transfer the virus from the surface to yourself.
