Fabrics should be washed regularly to prevent the spread of Coronavirus

In the 50 page roadmap recently published by the Government outlining the plan to Covid-19 recovery, it is highlighted that ‘Clothes should be washed regularly to prevent the spread of Coronavirus’. So, with the hospitality market set to reopen in a matter of months now is the time to get your business ready for a safe reopening. According to the report, scientists have seen evidence that the virus can stay on fabrics for a number of days.

We have seen a big push on santising surfaces. However, we know that within the hospitality sector fabric is one of the biggest customer touch-points. This means there are more factors to consider when washing fabrics.

Using an antibacterial washing powder such as Persil Hygiene to wash clothes, bedding and towels is the surest way of stopping the spread of viruses. This also creates a safer environment for your business and your customers.

Pro Formula Persil Hygiene has been extensively tested and is effective against harmful bacteria strains including MRSA. Persil Hygiene disinfects at temperatures as low as 40 degrees whilst maintaining excellent performance against a wide range of stains and types of soil.

Ovens Cleaning for Busy Businesses

In many smaller and independent hotels and restaurants, the kitchen will be the centre of activities. And in that kitchen, the oven will most likely be the most important piece of equipment. Without it, the business won’t be able to prepare food and serve its customers. Regular cleaning will help keep the oven in good working order and maintain good hygiene. But sometimes – after busy periods, for example – a bit of extra effort is needed. Diversey offers some excellent products in its Pro Formula range to help busy businesses clean their ovens quickly and easily. They are ideal for Spring Cleaning too.

Cif Professional Oven & Grill Cleaner

This a powerful ready-to-use cleaner that removes stubborn grease and carbon deposits from ovens and grills. Grease and deposits can be unsightly but under the wrong conditions, they can also post a food safety threat by providing a feeding ground for bacteria that cause illness or bad smells. They can also interfere with components inside the oven, leading to inefficient overworking and costly breakdowns.

Cif Professional Oven & Grill Cleaner eliminates these potential problems with its advanced professional formulation.

  • Removes tough grease and burnt-on food
  • Quick and easy to use
  • Non-corrosive formulation
  • Non-hazardous formulation 
  • Perfume-free so no risk of tainting food

The product is suitable for ovens, grills, and other surfaces to remove tough grease and carbon deposits. It is not suitable for aluminium, non-alkali resistant surfaces or self-clean panels. 

Like all Pro Formula products, Cif Professional Oven & Grill Cleaner is easy to use. Preheat the oven or grill to between 50 and 70oC. Switch off and spray the product on to the dirty surfaces and leave for 20 to 30 minutes. Rinse surfaces thoroughly with clean water. If the oven has not been cleaned regularly several applications may be necessary to remove the toughest carbon deposits.

Cif Professional Power Cleaner Degreaser

This powerful ready-to-use cleaner and degreaser quickly dissolves grease and dirt on most kitchen surfaces. It is suitable for ovens, cookers, hoods, filters, kitchen utensils, pots, pans, filters, floors, walls, doors and drains. It is safe to use on aluminium. The perfume-free formulation makes it ideal for any surface or item that will come into contact with food because there is no risk of tainting. Its two-in-one cleaning and degreasing capability makes jobs simpler and removes the need to buy separate products.

  • Dissolves grease fast
  • Safe on a wide range of surfaces
  • Suitable for aluminium
  • Perfume-free so no risk of tainting food
  • Two-in-one cleaning and degreasing performance

Cif Professional Power Cleaner Degreaser is easy to use, like all Pro Formula products. The temperature of the surface to be cleaned should be lower than 70oC. Remove excess soiling from the surface. Spray the product, leave for five minutes and then wipe clean. Rinse food-contact surfaces with clean water and leave to air dry. For tough grease, spray on the surface and leave for 10-30 minutes. Rinse with clean water and allow to air dry.

Clearing Blocked Drains

Blocked drains and pipes are an inconvenience. Clear them as soon as possible to allow the proper function of sinks and appliances in kitchens and washrooms. Partially or fully blocked drains will also cause bad smells that create a bad impression for guests and customers. Either way, clearing blocked drains should be on every Spring Clean list. Fortunately, Diversey has some great products to help.

Domestos Professional Drain Unblocker Gel

This is an effective and fast-acting unblocker for kitchen or bathroom drains. Simply pour into the blocked pipe or drain and leave for 15 minutes to do its work.

Use Domestos Professional Drain Unblocker Gel to clear blocked drains quickly.

The thick and powerful formulation sinks through any standing water to get straight to the source of the blockage. By removing the source of the blockage the gel also removes the source of potential odours. A regular dose of the gel will also help to keep drains free and prevent smells from returning.

  • Powerful formulation
  • Gel clings on surfaces
  • Safe on all pipes
  • Kills odours
  • Prevents build-up
  • Sinks through standing water
  • Child-proof cap and handle for safety

Good Sense Breakdown

We developed this versatile product to remove unsightly organic residues and sources of smells in washrooms and similar areas. Its active ingredients include enzymes, bacteria and detergents that eat through the organic residues that can block sinks and drains and cause bad smells.

Use Good Sense Breakdown to unblock drains and remove unsightly organic residues.

Pour it neat into the blocked sink or drain and leave to do its job. The active ingredients eat the residues causing the blockage. They simply wash away when the sink or drain is used as normal. A regular dose of the product will help to keep drains and pipes clear and odour-free.

The product is also used diluted to clean hard surfaces and prevent the build up of unsightly residues. On carpets, it’s a great spot cleaner when used neat or for general cleaning of larger areas when diluted.

Good Sense Breakdown also contains Odour Neutralising Technology (ONT) to eliminate the chemicals that cause bad smells.

Fast and Simple Kitchen Disinfection

Regular cleaning is the bedrock for any business that serves and prepares food. It keeps key areas clean and hygienic to enhance food safety and reduce the risk of food-borne illnesses. It also maintains the appearance of critical areas to reassure customers and guests that the business takes food safety seriously. Smaller and independent restaurants, hotels and care homes want to achieve these objectives but do not always have the time and resources available to their larger counterparts.

Cif Professional 2in1 Kitchen Cleaner Disinfectant 750ml spray bottle.

Diversey bridges this gap with Cif Professional 2in1 Kitchen Cleaner Disinfectant. This advanced product with its powerful two-in-one formulation delivers professional results, keeps tasks simple and saves time in busy kitchens. It is ideal for clean-as-you-go daily cleaning of all surfaces in food premises. But its power also makes it suitable for Spring Cleaning.

  • Effective against a wide range of micro-organisms
  • Powerful cleaner
  • Perfume-free to remove any risk of tainting food
  • Cuts through grease and dried-on food soiling
  • 2in1 formulation simplifies tasks and saves time

Cleaning & Disinfection In One Product

In food preparation and serving areas, it is important to clean and disinfect surfaces whenever switching between tasks and when switching between handling ingredients, uncooked and cooked items. This minimises the risk of cross-contamination and helps prevent any spread of food-borne illnesses. The two-in-one formulation of Cif Professional 2on1 Kitchen Cleaner Disinfectant does both jobs in one go, removing any risk of forgetting the all-important disinfection step.

Cif Professional 2in1 Kitchen Cleaner Disinfectant bulk five litre container.

Food contact surfaces must be rinsed with clean water and allowed to air dry.

Shiny Windows and Mirrors

Few things impress guests and customers more than bright and shiny glass, metal and hard surfaces. That special sparkle shows you’ve done your work and take cleaning and hygiene seriously. During spring cleaning it refreshes any room and helps to create a great impression for customers and guests. This will reassure them and help encourage positive comments, reviews and recommendations. Smaller and independent restaurants, hotels and care homes want to achieve these objectives but do not always have the time and resources available to their larger counterparts.

Pro Formula meets this challenge with Cif Professional Window & Multi-Surface Cleaner. This advanced ready-to-use cleaner delivers professional results, keeps tasks simple and saves time.
