Keep Your Employees & Occupants Safe With Commercial Disinfection

Your best defence against the spread of pandemic related illness, staff shortages and productivity loss rests upon one simple strategy: keeping your spaces clean with commercial sanitising and commercial disinfection.

Unfortunately, routine corporate cleaning procedures, while effective under normal circumstances, may not be sufficient to protect your staff and keep occupants safe from the pandemic. Preventative cleaning and sanitising during the pandemic helps ensure that your business remains safe, clean and open longer.

Partner With A Highly Trained And Experienced Cleaning Team

It’s important to partner with a highly trained and experienced commercial disinfection cleaning team. At Realcorp we will provide a safe and healthy office, manufacturing plant, gym, medical facility or residential apartment complex by complying with all recommended pandemic cleaning procedures when it comes to either preventative or decontamination cleaning and sanitising.

Realcorp has the kind of experience you can trust

When the pandemic hit our shores, Realcorp responded immediately; all our cleans now incorporate preventative pandemic disinfection. We’ve also performed dozens of all surface decontamination cleans in facilities where an occupant has tested positive.

We’ve been called in to provide commercial disinfection cleaning services to a range of facilities including residential apartment complexes, commercial offices and even food manufacturing plants, where the impacts of an infection would be particularly devastating.

For these types of businesses, their only hope of maintaining food supply chains is to stop any infection from happening in the first place and the best way to do this is regular high touch point cleaning and sanitising.
Our teams are proud to be making a difference, working on the frontline and helping to stop the virus spreading with our commercial disinfecting cleaning services.

Stay On Top Of All Pandemic Related Updates With Our Commercial Disinfecting Cleaning Services

The Realcorp team is continually keeping abreast of all pandemic updates. We understand that the virus is mainly spread in one of two ways: either through inhalation of droplets (i.e. when an infected person coughs or sneezes) or by touching surfaces where droplets have landed.

It’s also important to note that the virus can remain infectious on surfaces for several days. Studies have proven that previous similar viruses have lasted up to 9 days on certain surfaces – i.e. glass, metal and plastic.

You can reduce your risk of infection by having all occupants follow recommended hygiene practices:

  • Wash hands thoroughly and frequently
  • Avoid close contact
  • Stay home if unwell
  • Cough or sneeze into the elbow
  • Dispose quickly and properly of used tissues
  • Ventilate home and workspaces
  • Disinfect and sanitise all surfaces regularly

However, even with regular ‘top-up’ surface cleans using anti-bac wipes, you’ll still need to have your spaces regularly and thoroughly cleaned by a professional team.
This is because sanitising can be ineffective if the surface is not yet clean.

By following our pandemic-specific methods and protocols,which are aligned with the Victorian Government’s Guidelines for Workplaces, you can be sure your facility has been properly cleaned and disinfected during the pandemic.

Be sure that your facility stays ‘pandemic clean’ with commercial sanitising

Realcorp’s new pandemic cleaning and pandemic disinfection procedures have been developed in accordance with expert recommendations. Our Melbourne and regional based teams have been rigorously trained to ensure both their own safety and that of your occupants.

We now offer two pandemic-specific services:
Pandemic Decontamination Cleaning
Cleaning in buildings where a resident or employee has tested positive for the virus.
Pandemic Preventative Cleaning
Cleaning in commercial and residential apartment buildings where the risk of spread of the virus is high .

These new services have been designed to balance your risk. We’ve prioritised occupant safety, using effective, yet non-toxic products that minimise downtime, protecting business continuity.

How do we disinfect and sanitise differently for a pandemic clean?

Realcorp’s Standard Operating Procedures for these new commercial disinfectant cleaning services are very detailed and specific. Our teams follow strict processes for everything; from folding cloths in a certain way (to ensure every wipe is done with a clean side), down to safe Personal Protective Equipment removal post-clean.

To properly disinfect a surface, teams must follow a four-step process:

  1. Clean the surface first (of any organic material)
  2. Rinse the surface if required, and coat with a disinfectant
  3. Leave the surface wet for 10 minutes
  4. Rinse off disinfectant or leave to air-dry

Waste disposal takes on particular importance to prevent cross-contamination. In facilities where there has been a confirmed case of the virus, we will label and store waste in an agreed location for 72 hours (away from other rubbish) to ensure that any infectious waste is safe for normal disposal..

What’s the difference between ‘Decontamination’ and ‘Preventative’ infection cleaning?

Apart from the higher level of risk associated with an all surface decontamination clean (due to the presence of a confirmed case of the virus), the two services also differ in terms of scope and the need for additional personal protective equipment (PPE).

A preventative clean focuses on frequent and thorough disinfecting and sanitising of high traffic, high touch point areas; door handles, lift buttons, light switches and security pads, bathroom and kitchen taps and benches, meeting room tables and chairs – basically anywhere that people touch regularly with their hands.

PPE worn for this service may include gloves, masks and goggles.

An all surface decontamination clean requires a full-scale infectious commercial disinfection clean of potentially contaminated areas. All surfaces and furnishings must be disinfected and strict protocols in terms of PPE, use of cleaning tools and waste disposal will be followed to the letter. This level of precision and care prevents cross-contamination that would place occupants at further risk once they return (preferably not before 72 hours has passed).

In addition to gloves, masks and goggles, additional PPE including a gown and hairnet will be worn by teams where an official assessment has deemed an area to be particularly high risk.
