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:

For many persons, the concept of “effective” cleaning simply means that their surrounding areas are clean and orderly. But in a work place setting, effective cleaning means much more than that. Effective cleaning can be the difference between a safe work environment and one that’s a ticking time bomb. Safety consultants have long shown that a clean work environment not only boosts an entity’s image and facilitate an environment that is conducive to productivity and staff morale, but that it ensures that safety hazards are eliminated as much as possible. Here are four ways effective office cleaning can prevent workplace accidents.

Prevent Falls

Falls, slips and trips account for most of the frequent types of workplace injuries that occur. In order to stem these kinds of injuries, workplaces must ensure that floors are kept clean and dry. Using the correct type of cleaning agents is important as grease for example, can be hard to get rid of. Using the wrong cleaning products can end up spreading the slippery grease instead of getting rid of it. That is why it is always advised that businesses use professional cleaners who know how to get the job done.

Prevent Fires 

It should be workplace policy that all employees avoid letting material that are combustible pile up around the work area. Anything that can cause a fire should be stored properly or disposed of. Therefore, office cleaning should be a thorough and regular activity. Additionally, employees should take precaution against coming into contact with flammable liquids. Business owners should make sure that passageways and fire exit doors are clean and free of obstructions in the event a fire occurs.

Prevent ergonomics issues

Working in a cluttered environment can cause ergonomics problems as there is less space for employees to operate in, which can lead to injuries. Injuries such as cuts are prone to occur when people are working in tight, cluttered spaces. This kind of environment can cause body aches, the most common of which is back pain. With limited space, employees will tend to twist their bodies this way and that, instead of actually moving around to do or look for something. Routine cleaning will get rid of harmful clutter.

 Control dust 

Dust can range from being a nuisance to a full-blown fire hazard. In fact, according to Quincy, a Fire Protection Association, having more than 0.8 millimetres of dust covering at least 5% of an area (making the accumulation similar in size to a paper clip) is enough to pose a serious fire risk. Because of this, businesses should make sure that regular dusting is done by experts to keep dust levels down. It is to be noted that dust can also affect the effectiveness of cleaning equipment and so using the right equipment for cleaning like a high-quality industrial vacuum, and caring for them properly, will ensure that the job is done right.

Effective cleaning becomes even more critical for large manufacturing companies and warehouses that use equipment that can cause accidents. Because of the risk the equipment poses such as creating combustible dust, proper cleaning will play an integral role in such a business’ overall safety plan
