Either things have changed a great deal since I qualified as a journalist in the late 80s, or I’ve become a lot less naïve over the years. Either way, I’m probably the first one to tell people: “Don’t believe everything you read in the papers”.
The Internet has had a great deal to do with my own changing perceptions of the national press as I’ve been able to read a wider range of newspapers and watch news from different countries. Social media in particular, has made an enormous difference with an alternative view or conspiracy theory on most subjects we’d normally have taken ‘as read’.
Now we have Ebola and my goodness are some writers trying to scare us (although I for one never did believe that story doing the rounds about ex-Ebola sufferers who’d risen, zombie-like, from the dead)! I was taken in briefly though, by a scaremongering video showing hospital cleaners doing a poor job in a room in which an Ebola patient had died. It turned out that they weren’t cleaners at all.
Several companies have been in touch to let me know about their products and services that should help combat the spread of Ebola (one or two of them are featured below) and I’m sure that over the coming weeks I’ll receive – and feature - many more. Bearing in mind some of the more general ‘news’ I’ve read on the subject, I believe the best way of approaching what may turn out to be a long-running debate, is to start with the World Health Organisation’s statement - issued on Monday, on what it knows about Ebola and how it is thought to spread. You can read it below.
If there’s any situation that drives home the importance of those whose job it is to clean, to have a thorough training in (and understanding of) cleaning and infection control, it’s this one. Cleaning crews tasked with making safe once more, anything or anywhere that could potentially enable the virus to spread, will show the world they are worth their weight in gold.
I wonder when it is finally over and done with though, whether the world will remember the crucial role the cleaners will have played…

Soapbox: Sanitation Canada... What would happen if it came here?
Marc Ferguson, international business development manager for Kaivac, developer of the No-Touch and OmniFlex Cleaning Systems, which are sold in Canada, writes about the global spread of epidemics
In February 2003, a doctor who had been treating people with atypical pneumonia cases in China flew to Hong Kong to attend his daughter's wedding. He was staying in a local hotel when he began to develop symptoms similar to those of the patients he had been treating. In less than 24 hours, this illness, which would soon be known as severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, would spread to approximately a dozen other hotel guests, including a 78-year-old woman from Canada.

Morclean's machines move into Milton Keynes
Another delighted customer arrived at Morclean's premises earlier this month to take delivery of his new Morclean trailer-mounted wheelie bin wash machine.
Beating off tough competition to seal the deal, Morclean's director Peter Morley handed over the keys on the new machine to Milton Keynes based cleaners, Cleaner Bins MK - a company setting up a franchise operation that specified the machine in its corporate colours - black and yellow.
Here's how to get rid of mould... All mould loves cellulosic material - so all wallpaper, grout, plaster and plasterboard and wood, carpet - in short all household fixtures and fittings, are subject to mould contamination and it isn't easy to get rid of.
Where does it come from? Damp.
1. In a big old house the damp course could easily be compromised, assuming that there is one in the first place.
2. From broken gutters, window frames, holes in worn brickwork and grout, leaking roofs and tree roots... Damp wicks through the brickwork and wall finishings. As it dries off, the mould grows on the cellulosic material.
3. From high humidity in unventilated bathrooms and showers, but also in 50/50 humid atmospheres.
Little and often...
It's no secret that regular floor maintenance saves contractors from the time-consuming deep cleans, while also saving your carpets too. But is this a solution that is sat right in front of many, but completely overlooked?
This case study as Mike Egerton, MD of Host Von Schrader UK, explains may be an eye opener - after all, every little helps.
