Cleaning company sees spike in bookings due to Coronavirus outbreak
16 March 2020
Fantastic Services , a provider of domestic services, has reported an increase in demand for professional cleaning and sanitation due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Company founder Rune Sovndahl says they have been preparing for this for the last couple of months, expecting the outbreak to eventually reach Europe and the UK.
“Ever since the first reports from China came in, I realised we could soon be dealing with this crisis over here. We offer cleaning services, after all. We know a thing or two about sanitation,” said Sovndahl.
As the first cases of Coronavirus in the UK have been reported and the authorities have begun to raise awareness, the panic and discord have only grown.
But while travel companies are cancelling their flights and tech-giants such as Facebook are telling their London staff to work from home, Fantastic Services remains very much busy.
All Fantastic Services professionals who will remain active have not travelled outside of the UK in the past two months.
In addition, all staff will strictly follow practices and procedures on a daily basis to ensure their own safety.
Sovndahl added: “Our specialists have looked into what cleaning agents are suitable for such viral conditions. I think we are ready to do the best we can in case somebody needs a little help.”
The company has stated that it will be launching an Antivirus Sanitation service that will be available from 16 March 2020. The technicians will be using a certified non-toxic antiviral detergent to sanitise washable surfaces.
The World Health Organization has stated that preventative measures such as personal hygiene, sanitation, and avoidance of risk factors can minimize the spread of the virus.
“I think it is important to stay calm and brave for each other in times like this. As far as I know, people with already shaken health are the most vulnerable. And fear and stress can further comprise a person’s resistance to sickness,” said Sovndahl.
