Business as usual, interesting Coronavirus info and some great products ready for delivery!
Wrennalls Group's Shaun Bradbury says that despite the UK being in lockdown, his company is still very much operational and indeed it is 'business as usual', with some great products available and ready for delivery.
"Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses, meaning that they are RNA viruses which are surrounded by an outer coating comprised of a lipid bilayer (water-insoluble fatty coating)," explains Shaun.
"Enveloped viruses spread through a 'budding off' process during which a new virus becomes wrapped in an outer coating. However, if this layer is dissolved, these viruses are relatively easy to kill - making the exposed virus more susceptible to disinfectants than non-enveloped viruses.
"The Coronavirus therefore falls into a category of viruses that are most susceptible to disinfectants.
"Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread, include: regular hand washing, especially before and after food preparation, before eating, after toilet use and after handling animals or animal waste; covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing; thoroughly cooking meat and eggs, and avoiding close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing. Particular attention should be directed to the regular cleaning of door handles, switches, hand rails, chair arms and any other 'hand contact' areas."
"Appropriate, combined cleaning and disinfection strategies are recommended to help control the spread of dangerous pathogens, such as the 2019-nCOV."
Wrennalls Group's M2 Ultra demonstrates 'virucidal activity against enveloped viruses'. A neutral cleaning and sanitising solution, it can be used to both clean and sanitise a wide range of carpets, textiles, floors and other hard surfaces within domestic, commercial and healthcare environments. It has WoolSafe approval.
M2 Ultra has been independently tested and fully approved to meet the BS EN 1276 Standard for the bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectants as proof of effective infection control against harmful micro-organisms such as MRSA, Salmonella, E. Coli, Flu Virus (H1N1) and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. It has also been independently tested and fully approved to meet the BS EN 13704 and BS EN 1327 Standards.
M2 Ultra is available in both a five-litre concentrate and a one-litre (1:10 dilution ready-to-use sanitising spray) direct from www.m2care.co.uk or www.cleanerswarehouse.co.uk .
"Being a tech-enabled business gives us the unique benefit of being able to service your cleaning solutions and janitorial product needs, even now that we are all working from home," adds Shaun.
"The good news is that we can facilitate your deliveries to business or residential addresses, so your business should not suffer due to supply chain issues.
"We're sure you are aware, that our carrier partners are taking the utmost precautions to ensure both driver and customer safety.
"While there may be possible delays to shipments during this time, please be assured that we have the ability to monitor your shipments to ensure that they stay on track or - if need be - alert you of potential delays ahead of time."
Other products Shaun says are in great demand at the moment include the M2 Total Washroom Concentrate and the Sebo BS 360 upright vacuum.
The M2 Total Washroom Concentrate cleans, disinfects and deodorises - eliminating odours at source. For use on walls, floors, paintwork, tiles, Formica, glass, chrome, stainless steel, enamel and porcelain, it is ideal for all toilet areas, toilet seats, handles, urinals, toilet bowls, baths, sinks and showers, where it prevents build-up of hard water, limescale and body fats.
