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

Unless you’re one of those responsible adults, you probably aren’t washing your bed-sheets as frequently as you should.


What about your mattress? Let’s be real – if you can’t be bothered to chuck your pillowcases in the laundry every few days, the need to clean your mattress has likely slipped your mind. Even if you do think ‘wait, should I clean this?’, it’s tricky to know where to start. You can’t just bung a mattress in a washing machine and hope for the best. So how often should you be cleaning your mattress? And how on earth do you do it, beyond just covering the entirety of your bed in squirts of Febreeze? Neil Robinson, Chief Sleep Officer (yes, that is his real job title) at Sealy UK advises giving your mattress a proper wash every six months or so.

This is to get rid of all the dirt and dead skin that accumulates, even underneath bed sheets, and to prevent dust mites. If you suffer from allergies, however, it might be worth cleaning your mattress more frequently to get rid of any triggers. There’s a super simple way to clean your mattress. First, strip it of all its sheets and pillows, then give it a good vacuum on all sides to remove any dirt, hair, or crumbs (we see you people who like to eat biscuits in bed). Once that’s done, sprinkle bicarbonate of soda all over the mattress. Leave to air for a few hours then vacuum it all away, making sure to get every last grain. This helps to get rid of any bacteria and damp and make your mattress feel fresh again.

You can also find special mattress cleaning sprays which work in a similar way. If you have light stains on your bed you can use an enzyme cleaner to get rid of them. After that you can hit your mattress with your Febreeze or other linen sprays to give it a nice scent. Don’t absolutely douse the area – you don’t want your mattress to get too wet. It’s important to note that this method only works for those every-six-months cleans. If your mattress is absolutely filthy, seriously stained, or has dust mites, a vacuum job won’t cut it. In these extreme cases, it’s time to call in a professional. They’ll have high power cleaning products to tackle the serious stuff. Once you’ve cleaned your mattress, take steps to make sure it stays clean. That includes regularly washing all your bedding, buying a mattress protector, and letting your bed air.
