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:

toilet wash

After a cleaning hack involving washing up liquid went viral, some plumbers have spoken out to warn against the trick.

This is what you need to know about the cleaning hack – and whether or not you should be doing it.

What was the ‘hack’?

Posted to Facebook group, Mums Who Clean, one woman explained how she’d been using washing up liquid to keep her toilet clean.
She wrote, “[Put] Dishwashing liquid in the toilet tank compartment and every flush is fresh, clean smelling bubbles and the toilet always looks clean.”
The writer explained, “I do a big squeeze about three days a week and the toilet is used all the time.”
She also said how she had “been doing it for years” with no problems.

Why you shouldn’t put dish soap in your toilet

It appears, however, that not everyone is on board with this DIY toilet hack – with other users warning against the trick.
“It ruins your system, so don’t do it,” wrote one person, and another added, “Please don’t do this – the rubber/seals in your toilet cistern can break down when anything else but water is used in there.”
Peter Daly, CEO of Master Plumbers, said that you should be wary of using products that aren’t designed to go into a toilet system.
Talking to News.com.au, Daly said, “Master Plumbers advises that it’s safest to use cleaning products specifically designed for flush toilets. People living in outside built-up areas who are using septic tanks (rather than sewers) should ensure the product used is compatible with septic systems.”
Daly also added that people should think about the environment when selecting cleaning products.
