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:

A clever cleaning hack reveals how to easily freshen up your washing in the tumble dryer using a simple cleaning sponge and a dash of fabric softener.
Instagram user, Mrs D, has taken to the photo sharing app to share how she gives her laundry a heavenly scent by popping in a sponge soaked in fabric softener — and she claims it works far better than expensive tumble dryer sheets.
Posting to her Instagram stories in a helpful step-by-step, she says: ‘I’ve got two caps of fabric conditioner, which I’m just going to put straight into the bowl. Next, I’ve got a jug of water and all you want to do is just pour it in until it’s just above the actual sponge.
‘You don’t have to let it sit for too long, either. Some people leave theirs for 24 hours to soak, but all you need to do is give it a good squeezing. When you come to use it, all you have to do is fold it in half and squeeze it gently. You don’t want to be squeezing to the point where there is nothing in there. You still want it to be heavy with liquid. It won’t work if you wring it out.
‘I’ve been using these sponges for the past 12 months and I’m still getting use out of them. They are so much better than using tumble dryer sheets. It’s going to save you money as well and your clothes are going to smell really fresh. You’ll also notice that your tumble dryer is giving off that nice scent in your house, too,’ she adds.

Many of her followers commented saying they would ‘never go back to their old ways’ after discovering this hack. One lady even said: ‘I’ve been doing this a while now and I use cut up kitchen sponges instead. I just pop a few in depending how much is going in the tumbler. It’s a fantastic trick to do. Washing always comes out smelling amazing.’

How does it work?
You can simply have a go at this hack yourself by following these simple steps…
1. Fill a medium-sized bowl with warm water and add two cupfuls of fabric conditioner
2. Next, take your cleaning sponge and place it in. Leave it for a short moment so that the sponge fully soaks up the water
3. Take the sponge out of the water and rinse it slightly, so that it won’t drip on your washing
4. Then, place your sponge in your tumble dryer with your laundry and wait to see your the results
You can also follow a step-by-step how-to over on her Instagram stories.
