Tonight at midnight South Africa enters into lock down and many businesses will be forced to down tools during this period. We want to remind you that Rentokil Initial will continue to do what we do best: protecting people and enhancing lives. We’ll continue to provide critical pest control and hygiene services to other essential services businesses. Our customers include healthcare providers, food manufacturers, supermarkets and other essential services, all of which will still be operational during the lock down. If your business falls into one of these categories and you are remaining operational during lock down, have you considered a disinfection service for your business?
What is Rentokil Initial’s Disinfection Service?
Rentokil Initial’s Disinfection Service is an antibacterial fogging treatment that quickly and effectively eliminates disease causing pathogens (viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi) thus reducing the risk of illness and cross-contamination.
How is our Disinfection Service Performed?
A Rentokil Initial technician will apply the product in the form of a spray or mist to any area that requires disinfection. Once the technician has completed the service, the area that has been treated should be vacated for 20 minutes to allow the product to settle and the fog to dissipate.
Rest assured that Rentokil Initial technicians performing this service do so wearing full personal protective equipment (PPE). They have also all been extensively trained on the safe and effective use of the equipment and chemicals required to undertake this service.
What Chemical Preparation is used in a Disinfection Service?
Rentokil Initial uses Steritech CAS; a broad spectrum disinfectant which is safe to use on all surfaces, including food contact surfaces. Steritech CAS has been proved effective against a number of major disease causing organisms including E.Coli, Salmonella, Streptococcus and Staphylococcus. This product kills 99.99% of pathogens.
Whilst there are currently no products that have been tested for efficacy against COVID-19 (due to COVID-19 being a novel strain of the Coronavirus) Steritech CAS has been found to be effective against existing strains of Coronavirus, such as SARS and MERS.
Steritech complies to the following EN and SANS efficacy standards on;
- Bactericidal Efficacy: SANS 51276 (EN 1276) & SANS 53727 (EN 13727)
- Fungicidal & Yeasticidal Efficacy: SANS 51650 (EN 1650) & SANS 53624 (EN 13624)
- Virucidal Efficacy: EN 14476 (SANS 54476)
