With the 2021 national lockdown accelerating an uptake in demand for takeaway services, Deliveroo Editions knew it had a responsibility to ensure its kitchens not only facilitated the increase in orders, but consistently ensured the safety of all employees and visitors.
To achieve this, whilst also helping to maintain its 100 per cent 5-star EHO and equivalent rating, Deliveroo Editions commissioned the support of industrial, commercial and domestic cleaning services firm, ICE Cleaning to complete consistent virus sanitisation programmes throughout a selection of its UK delivery only kitchen hubs.
ICE Cleaning’s unique ICE SHIELD® decontamination treatment was regularly applied by a dedicated team of technicians throughout the venues to provide the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness, by adequately mitigating against the potential spread of viruses and bacteria.
Dora Besenyei, Operations Manager at Deliveroo Editions UK, said: “Over the last 12 months, ICE Cleaning has become a trusted partner of Deliveroo Editions. ICE Cleaning’s team has shown consistent dedication to improving the level of hygiene throughout our delivery only kitchen hubs, and through regular ICE SHIELD® decontamination treatments, we’ve been able to minimise threats in the workplace and create a clean, safe environment for our staff and guests.”
Utilising electrostatic technology to effectively destroy 99.9 per cent of traces of coronavirus and other bacteria and viruses, ICE SHIELD® has been independently proven to deliver 100 per cent effectiveness in killing certain types of bacteria, in addition to providing consistent protection against recurrence.
Besenvei continued: “The cleaning regime that ICE Cleaning offers provides an all-in-one layer of protection against bacteria and viruses which lasts for 28 days, meaning our workforce feel comfortable carrying out their daily duties. As a result, we’ve been able to maintain a high level of productivity – even during the pandemic. We’re incredibly thankful for ICE Cleaning’s hard work and look forward to developing our relationship over the next year.”
Guaranteeing full surface protection against harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi for at least 28 days, each ICE SHIELD® application was supported by a decontamination certificate, which evidenced the environment’s continued defence against the recurrence and bacteria, to provide restaurant owners using the facilities with complete peace of mind.
Zac Hemming, Managing Director of ICE Cleaning, said: “Throughout the first quarter of 2021, the pandemic fuelled a significant increase in demand for takeaways across the nation. As Deliveroo Editions worked closely with restaurant owners to ensure they could successfully meet this demand, they also knew they had to ensure the safety of all individuals at all times.
“It was therefore vital that all necessary precautions were consistently taken to protect the health and wellbeing of both Deliveroo Editions team members and restaurant owners, without causing disruption to daily operations. Our persistent ICE SHIELD® decontamination solution ensured each location was successfully protected against the spread of viruses and bacteria, both on surfaces and in the air, to ensure the safety of all individuals when on site.”
