Lockdown cleaning and sanitation services

Updated: 06 July 2021

South Africa is currently in a national lockdown, owing to the surge in Covid-19-related deaths and infections. President Cyril Ramaphosa has said that the lockdown will be strictly enforced "until we have passed the peak of new infections" in this third wave. As a certified essential business, IWESCO is well-prepared and equipped to provide all the cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting services during the lockdown.

A number of restrictions, such as the ban on the sale of alcohol, the closure of beaches and the ban on gatherings remain in place until further notice. Curfew hours will also be enforced but these may vary from city to city. South Africa has recorded 2.08 million cases and just over 62 000 deaths so far.

IWESCO will lend a helping hand during the lockdown

IWESCO will be on-hand to ensure that businesses can re-open and resume operations under safe and clean conditions. We employ a variety of cleaning methodologies that follow strict protocols. Our staff are highly trained to use specialised equipment and sanitising chemicals that are effective against viruses and bacteria. They are also dressed in the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure your safety and theirs.

This means that we can help your business to counter the spread of Covid-19 as South Africa attempts to reopen the economy and industries. We recommend the following services as the lockdown restrictions are eased:

  1. Ordinary cleaning and sanitising of your business premises by our cleaning team. This will get your store, office, warehouse or factory back into top condition before your doors reopen to customers.

  2. Placement of temporary staff to disinfect and sanitise all surfaces in your business. This will be on an ongoing basis until the lockdown is completely lifted. Our teams will work in shifts to sanitise door handles, ablutions, countertops, pay points and trolleys.

  3. Regular fogging of your work environment. This ensures the complete disinfection of an entire room, including hard-to-reach places. The sanitising chemical that is misted into the room will land on all surfaces and kill any virus or bacteria.

IWESCO also offers residual disinfection and sanitising services at any desired frequency. We can send a team to your property on a daily basis, weekly, monthly or even as a once-off service after suspected contamination. Ensure that your company complies with international recommendations for sanitation in the wake of Covid-19.

To set up an assessment or to get a quote, please do not hesitate to contact an IWESCO representative in your city. We aim to lend a helping hand and ensure that country is safe as we return to normalcy during the Coronavirus pandemic.
