Rentokil adds new service for businesses with confirmed COVID-19


April 16, 2020



After announcing in late March that it had added a disinfection service offering “to help businesses such restaurants, hotels and office facilities with disinfecting their businesses from pathogens,” Rentokil is now rolling out an additional level of disinfection service to treat facilities with confirmed COVID-19 cases.

“We’ve seen such a high demand for disinfection service with our commercial customers,” Rentokil President & CEO John Myers said in a press release. “The protection of their employees, customers and our service personnel is our top priority, and we are now able to help our customers get back up and running safely after a confirmed COVID-19 case.”

Each Rentokil Disinfection Service starts with an assessment of the facility to identify any high-risk areas. The certified specialist determines the level of disinfection, protection and service, and wears specialized protective gear while conducting the service. In cases where there has been a COVID-19 exposure, the specialists set up a special staging area for donning and removing this protective gear to further protect the facility.

According to the release, the specialists use a wide range of tools to treat the area with advanced liquid dispersal technology, which creates extremely small disinfectant droplets to treat hard-contact surfaces and inaccessible areas. The fast-acting formula inactivates pathogens in 10 minutes, including COVID-19, SARS, MRSA, E. Coli, Salmonella and more. The formula is U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-registered on the N-list, which is approved for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The environmentally friendly formula also has the added benefits of leaving no harsh fumes or visible residue, and eliminates odors.

“We developed this program to maintain the highest level of hygiene in our customer’s facilities,” said Myers. “It is our goal to give business owners the peace of mind that they are doing all they can to protect their people and show that their brand is committed to safety.”
