Two Counties Cleaning was called in last week by Hampshire County Council to conduct an emergency deep clean at Hythe Primary School.
The school, which is not one of our contracted schools, had been struck by the bug which had affected a large number of people. With around 300 pupils aged between four and 11, the highly infectious bug was spreading quickly with many reporting suffering sickness and diarrhea for a 24 – 48-hour period.
Trevor Jackson, MD at Two Counties Cleaning said, “We received a call asking if we could send our specialist team in for infection control, and within 6 hours we had an emergency crew working two evening shifts to help rectify the problem. Our knowledge and expertise of cleaning for the education sector as well as the medical sector means that we apply stringent protocols in our cleaning standards which can help prevent and control any such outbreaks. It is still important to instill good hygiene practice in schools such as regular hand washing and use of sanitizing gels when infection breaks out.”
Two Counties Cleaning Services Ltd is contracted to many schools within the Hampshire and Dorset area, but Hythe Primary School is not one of them.
