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:


·       By phone 020 8640 8800

·       By email







Running a business is never easy, and trying to keep staff turnover to a minimum is just one more challenge that employers need to overcome. Keeping workers happy is an ongoing battle, however recent evidence shows that it could be as simple as just keeping your workspaces cleaner. Why? Read on and find out more.

Productivity Is Impacted

Research has recently shown that a surprising number of professionals believe that if their workplace falls below acceptable hygiene standards their work efficiency is negatively affected. 88% of employees who were surveyed said that poor bathroom hygiene, unpleasant odours and a low standard of overall workplace cleanliness all contributed to low productivity among employees. If companies paid more attention to these key areas, they could find that workers get a lot more done and achieve their goals more quickly.

Challenges Become Easier

Even if your staff really love their job, they’ll also have the odd difficult day. When workers are facing challenging tasks or tight deadlines, they don’t want to have to cope with mess and dirt as well as their difficult job. If workers are faced with a pile of dirty dishes in the sink when they enter the kitchen to make a coffee or if they can’t fit any more paper in the bin because it hasn’t been emptied, these small challenges can end up being the straw that broke the camel’s back. Nobody wants to have to stop midway through a job to sift through mess to find a key document or search for a cup in a disorganised kitchen. With a clean and tidy office environment, extra challenges are kept to a minimum.

Better Customer Service

When customers are happy, staff are happier too, so finding ways to improve the customer experience is paramount. One quick and easy way to do this is by making sure that the office area is bright, clean and tidy so that they feel more welcome and get the right impression. A clean and well-maintained work environment shows that you take your business seriously and care about your staff and visitors’ happiness.

Staff Will Be Healthier

One major reason to invest in better cleaning for your workplace is that a clean workplace will be a healthier one. No employer wants to lose valuable worker time due to sickness as this only reduces productivity and, in turn, profitability. When workers are able to spend their day in a hygienic and clean workspace, they are less likely to take time off due to viruses and bugs. Staff will also feel happier – after all, nobody wants to drag themselves into work while they feel sick or while they have the flu!

Hiring Commercial Cleaners

In the average office, workers are far too busy to have to think about cleaning and tidying on top of their other tasks. That’s why it’s so important to hire a team of professional commercial cleaners like North Kent Cleaning Services. We can keep your working environment pristine and hygienic so your team can stay as happy and productive as possible.
