We have taken numerous measures to ensure our building is as safe as possible for our new tenants. Firstly, we enlisted the services of “Natri-san”, who are a sanitising fogging company specialising in preventing the spread of viruses in schools, hospitals, retail stores, and of course, boarding establishments – such as ours.
After thorough research into the most effective sanitising methods, we found fogging to be the most popular used by UK businesses and felt confident their services would help provide a safe living space for our tenants. The Natri-san fogging team covered every individual room, along with all communal rooms & areas in the building. Their non chemical solutions kills 99.9% of bacteria, and this procedure was carried out a few days prior to the new intake of tenants.
Along with the fogging preparation, we also scheduled in our usual end of year deep clean. This is carried out by a local cleaning company, and gave us that extra peace of mind that we had the full building as hygienic and clean as possible using professional services.
Also, as an extra precaution, we (Tom & Jack Atha) have been carrying out an additional clean 24 hours prior to the tenants moving in to their rooms. We have also implemented a new rule & left a 7 day gap between the old tenant moving out, and the new tenant moving in.
We feel these preparation steps have given both us and our tenants some much needed reassurance that every possible step has been taken to prevent a Covid-19 outbreak in our building & that we are providing safe student accommodation in Teesside.
