ICE Cleaning delivers specialist decontamination for the London Exam Centre
The London Exam Centre has partnered with ICE Cleaning, to ensure the safety and wellbeing of its staff and students by successfully eliminating the spread of viruses and bacteria.
Forming part of Wimbledon School of English, The London Exam Centre offers a wide range of examination options, including authorised Cambridge assessments, with both computer-based and paper-based testing available to students throughout the year.
As an educational institution that processes around 9,000 candidates per year, The London Exam Centre recognised the importance of protecting the health and wellbeing of its staff and students by creating a safe and hygienic learning environment.
To reduce the threat of viruses and bacteria spreading, The London Exam Centre has appointed ICE Cleaning to deliver its bespoke cleaning and virus decontamination service, ICE Shield, each month.
When applied with electrostatic technology, this system eradicates all traces of viruses and bacteria by forming a protective barrier, as positively charged electrostatic particles attach themselves to negatively charged particles found on solid surfaces, whilst simultaneously counteracting any negatively charged particles within the atmosphere.
ICE Shield has been proven to deliver 100% effectiveness in killing certain types of bacteria, in addition to providing consistent protection against recurrence, following extensive independent testing by the University of Hertfordshire, even in settings with high levels of bacteria.
"Educational institutions, such as The London Exam Centre, have remained open for a large part of the pandemic,” says Zac Hemming, managing director of ICE Cleaning. “As a result, they have had to implement strict health & safety measures to ensure both students and staff are sufficiently protected at all times.
"To create the safest possible environment, our team of highly skilled experts complete a thorough deep clean of the centre once a month, which includes our ICE Shield treatment. The treatment forms a protective barrier that lasts up to 28 days, making it the most effective form of protection for a school environment, whilst ensuring minimal disruption to students and staff.
"It is vital that the services we provide not only protect students and staff, but also offer reassurance that exams and assessments can go ahead as planned. By creating a clean and hygienic environment, students and teachers can focus on the task at hand, whether that's an exam they are sitting or classes they are attending."
Martin Cowdrey, maintenance support at Wimbledon School of English, adds: "After researching suitable cleaning companies to use at Wimbledon School of English and The London Exam Centre, we selected ICE Cleaning for its wide range of cleaning services. The quality of the services provided are high and have met the needs of our business in these different times."
ICE Cleaning is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with an emergency response team able to arrive on-site within an hour. The company's expert technicians are trained to the highest standards, whilst adhering to all the relevant health and safety regulations. For more information, visit
