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






If you’ve tried absolutely everything to get rid of those dirty baking tray stains, and feel as if you have no other option but to buy new ones, try this five-step method

baking traybaking tray

No matter how hard we may try to keep our baking trays looking as shiny and new as when we got them, they always end up looking a little worse for wear after a few months.
Whether you’ve lined them with tin foil or baking parchment, somehow the dirt finds itself on your beloved pan – leaving you feeling as if you have to tell dinner guests that ‘they are clean!’ whenever you pull them out.

If most of the time they look stained, have a layer of grease on that you just can’t budge, or bits of burnt food that has gotten lodged in the corners, and replacing them every few months just isn’t in your budget…
This simple five-step cleaning hack guarantees to wash all of your worries away – literally.

Step one
Grab your dirty baking tray and pour over some boiling water – enough so that it’s filled to the brim.
Leave it for a minute before emptying, and don’t dry it.

Step two
Sprinkle on an ample amount of bicarbonate of soda, focusing on places that you really want to clean.
And it has to bicarbonate of soda, not baking powder, as it’s much stronger.

Step three
On top of the bicarbonate of soda add a layer of salt.
Any type of salt will do, but it’s said that coarse sea salt works best.

Step four
Into an empty spray bottle add white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar, and spray liberally over the bicarbonate of soda and salt concoction you’ve made.
When it fizzes, you know it’s working.

Step five
Finally, with a slightly damp heavy-duty scourer or steel wool, scrub every inch of your pan.
You can also use a ball of scrunched up tin foil to do this, if you don’t have anything else at hand – but this is only if your pan is made only of metal and doesn’t have a special coating.

You’ll notice as you start scrubbing, the ingredients will form a paste.
After around five to ten minutes, give your pan a final rinse in the sink and it should be as good as new.
