Rentokil Initial’s Specialist Disinfection Service


Have you considered what you would do if you have a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case on your premises? How do you ensure that premises are safe for other colleagues once you reopen?

Rentokil Initial globally has been hard at work to formulate a central response to our customers’ needs for various levels of Disinfection Services. Specialist Disinfection has already been tested in Asia and Europe and is now being rolled out locally to meet the needs of our South African customers.

Rentokil Initial South Africa has been given the go-ahead by our global head office to offer Specialist Disinfection Services, and we are able to safely treat high-risk premises, where there are confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19.

What can our customers expect?

Rentokil Initial’s Specialist Disinfection Service is an ultra-low volume (ULV) fogging treatment that quickly and effectively eliminates disease causing pathogens including viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi, thus reducing the risk of illness and cross-contamination. Ultra-low volume (ULV) fogging is the use of extremely small droplets of a disinfectant, dispersed through a fogger, to settle on inaccessible areas. This enables the treatment of large areas in a short space of time.

Our Disinfection Service is tiered into 4 distinct categories, making us better able to respond to our customers’ specific needs.

1.   High Level Specialist Disinfection Service:

For those customers who need a highly specialised service because they’ve had a suspected or confirmed case or cases of COVID-19 infection on their premises within the last 72 hours.

2.      Intermediate Level Specialist Disinfection Services:

For customers whose premises have been closed for more than 72 hours due to suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 infection. Under most circumstances, the amount of infectious virus on any contaminated surface is likely to have significantly decreased after 72 hours.

3.      Precautionary Disinfection Service:

For those customers who want a one-off precautionary clean to sanitise their premises:  carried out only on premises there are no confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19 on site.

4.      Contingency Survey:

For customers who want to be able to react quickly should a case of COVID-19 occur – by planning in advance how a Specialist Disinfection service would be carried out on their premises.
