“To ensure that we delivered with our Group’s high levels of quality control and care, it was crucial that we adhered to best practice with regards to the product and method used,” said Monwabisi Kalawe, CEO of Tsebo Cleaning and Hygiene Solutions.
The vehicles were cleaned individually using a two-step process that consisted of first cleaning with a neutral detergent, and then applying a disinfectant using an electrostatic sprayer. The disinfectant is EPA approved, 100% natural, safe for both people and animals and effective against a wide range of mycobacteria, fungi, and viruses (including the COVID-19 virus).
The fine spray mist is electrostatically charged using a lightweight hand-held device that works quietly and efficiently, providing 360-degree coverage and better adhesion to surfaces and objects.
Kalawe adds, “With more workplaces opening up and the alarming rate at which COVID-19 infections are increasing, it has become even more important to find reputable solutions and partners to not only safeguard employees but to also ensure that we are doing everything possible to combat the spread of this deadly virus.”
* Registered with NRCS (National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications), EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and SABS (South African Bureau of Standards) and standard operating procedures are aligned to recommendations from the National Institute of Communicable Diseases and guidelines from the Department of Health.
