IWESCO is a professional industrial cleaning and waste services company that operates in South Africa. As the global COVID-19 pandemic has already reached our country’s major cities and numerous towns, it is vital to stay clean and sanitised. We offer continuous sanitising solutions for businesses - this includes daily cleaning and disinfecting of office spaces, warehouses, industrial sites, retail spaces and public areas.
IWESCO is monitoring the latest developments relating to the COVID-19 outbreak so that we can supply an uninterrupted service and deliver it with maximum efficiency. During these cleaning and sanitising sessions, we actively ensure the safety and well-being of your employees and our own. Preventing the spread of the virus is our top priority.
Sanitising the work environment and helping people to keep themselves protected at all times is essential. In addition to our standard operating procedures, which are governed by international environmental standards, we will be conducting more frequent cleaning and sanitising routines for our clients.
Cleaning services during COVID-19 outbreak
IWESCO will assist customers in these times of uncertainty by making additional staff available to focus on our sanitising solutions. These staff members will be trained to supply and utilise sanitation chemicals in the most effective way. They will also be on-hand to provide continuous cleaning services in order to reduce the risk of contamination and the spread of COVID-19. This leaves our customers free to focus on their core business.
As chemicals and hygiene consumables become difficult to find and purchase, IWESCO has successfully secured stock from our suppliers. Indications suggest that these items, such as toilet paper, hand sanitisers, towels and soaps, will be in high demand. In view of these current uncertainties and our large but finite stock, we would like to apologise in advance for any inconveniences that may occur.
Personal hygiene and sanitation of all spaces are absolutely critical in minimising the impact of COVID-19. Here are some simple but effective tips for fighting the virus at home and at work:
Every morning, take a deep breath and hold it for 10 seconds. Any pain in the chest or an inability to hold your breath is an early indication of the virus infection.
Take a sip of water every 10 minutes to keep your mouth and throat wet. This will also flush any virus into the stomach, where the acid will kill it. A dry mouth and throat will cause a virus to be breathed into the lungs.
Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, as often as possible.
Avoid touching your face, especially the eyes, nose and mouth.
Sanitise anything you touch regularly, such as a phone, computer keyboard, tablet, car steering wheel and all door handles.
If you go into a public space, change clothes when you get home and wash your garments with regular detergent. However, avoid leaving the house as much as possible.
Drink warm or hot drinks. The COVID-19 virus does not survive in high temperatures, so coffee, tea and warm water are likely to neutralise it. Avoid drinking anything with ice.
Practice social distancing, which includes inviting a friend around to the house. The best way to prevent the spread of this virus is to isolate ourselves as much as we can.
Do not hesitate to contact us should you require any assistance or advice. We can help you protect your employees and your customers by having a hygienic and sanitised space. By safeguarding the work environment, we can enable our clients to continue operating and trading in these uncertain times. Please stay safe and healthy.
