Acorn Environmental and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

 

Dear Customer

 

In light of the developments around Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that we have implemented measures ensuring our business can provide you with the best possible service during this time.

Our office-based staff have the ability to work from home if it is deemed necessary in order to provide our customers with continued support.

 

During this time, we will continue to fulfil our contractual obligations where practicable with the use of our usual mobile work force and part time staff, and where necessary our emergency response teams. We will do our best to continue to offer the additional services, such as bulk refuse removal and gutter clearances etc. However, there may be delays in some of these services should we need to step in and complete deep cleans for some of our more vulnerable and high-risk clients i.e. schools and sheltered accommodation sites.

 

Acorn’s staff have all had communication regarding what they can do to try to help reduce the spread of the infection not only in their homes but within our clients’ sites as well.

 

As our staff, and certainly our cleaning staff will be on your site(s) regularly, and to ensure that our staff are protected, we would ask that you inform us as soon as possible of the following:

 

·       Any confirmed cases at your site(s)

·       Anyone from your site(s) that is self-isolating

 

This information will allow us to make an informed decision as to how best to proceed on a site by site basis.

 

As a company our plan is to:

 

·       Identify employees at increased risk

·       Have the ability for our office staff to work from home with uninterrupted phone access should the need to isolate arise

·       Using remote access software to ensure we are able to continue to communicate with our clients

·       Follow the latest government guidelines to reduce the chances of infection and the spread of the virus

·       On-going communication with suppliers and clients allowing back-up plans to be implemented quickly

 

Acorn Environmental is committed to continue to provide the highest levels of service. Should we have any unexpected circumstances which may affect supply of goods and services, we will clearly communicate this to our customers via the normal communication channels.

 

If you have any questions or concerns in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact us:

Christmas tree surrounded with gifts

A three-week countdown to cleaning your home for Christmas

It’ll leave you with enough time to enjoy the festivities!

We know, we can’t believe it either – a year has passed and here we are, just weeks to go before Christmas and there’s still so much to do in the home.
We thought we had learnt our lesson from last year, where we vowed to be so much more organised to reduce the rising stress levels that is all so very common in this very busy month. But no, just like everything else, time got in the way, and now with three weeks ago, Christmas is very much in sight.
Preparing to welcome guests during the festive season means paying urgent attention to the home, from the rooms and objects we touch the most, to all the corners and crevices that are often forgotten.
There’s no doubt about it, household chores – whether big or small – can be daunting. But in fact, there really is no need to worry at all. Why? Because the experts at Oven Pride has put together a three-week guide to help you prepare your house from top to bottom. And the best bit? It’ll leave you with enough time to enjoy the Christmas festivities – minus the stress.

THREE WEEKS TO GO

The Living Room
It’s time to prepare the living room for the main event – the Christmas tree. Pull all the furniture in to the centre of the room and vacuum the floors and soft furnishings. Begin to clear a space for the tree and dust off the decorations.
*As for Santa, he’ll need a clean fireplace for a grand arrival, so take the time to dust the hearth.

TWO WEEKS TO GO

Kitchen cupboards
Turkey ordered? Check. Clean cupboards? Hmmm. About that… Prepare your fridge and cupboards for the Christmas feast by clearing out and wiping down all surfaces and shelves so you’re ready for the ‘big shop’.

ONE WEEK TO GO

Entertaining guests over the festive period? One week before Christmas is the perfect time to ensure their bedroom is visitor ready, so it’s a good time to ensure that your guest towels and bedding are washed, ironed and ready to roll.

Kitchen
The one job that’s often forgotten about… the big oven clean! With family and friends poking around your kitchen on the big day, let your oven have it’s time to shine and make it mother-in-law proof! You can cut time using Oven Pride by simply placing the racks in the plastic bag provided, add in the solution and then wait 24 hours.
And do you reserve your ‘posh’ cutlery and glasses for special occasions? Make sure glasses are polished and cutlery is clean and ready to go.
Tip: If you notice any stains on your glassware, fill the sink with warm water and add a small amount of bleach. Soak for at least 30 minutes. Make a paste from baking soda and water and rub it into the stained area. Rinse well and allow the glasses to air dry. If the stains remain, repeat the process.

24 HOURS BEFORE

Bathroom
To get your bathroom ship-shape before Christmas guests arrive, make sure to clean the shower and sink with an all-purpose spray, and don’t forget to fluff up the bath mat to be extra soft for guests. Flush the toilet, then pour a cupful of bleach into the rim of the bowl and leave to sit for five minutes.
Tip: Create a solution with equal parts water and vinegar in a spray bottle and use a microfibre cloth to clean toothpaste stains and water marks.

Living Room & Dining Room
Time for one last vacuum in the living room to clear any loose pine needles and dust and polish surfaces.
Finally, why not set the Christmas dinner table the night before to ensure the big day is as stress-free as possible… then pour yourself a drink and enjoy the festivities because you’ve certainly earned it!
