We are pleased to share more information with you on how we are revolutionising facility and healthcare management in the education industry!

“The main hope of a nation lies in the proper education of it’s your “


With the ever-rising number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 amongst educational institutes, whether they are creches, primary and high school, colleges and universities, it is now more important than ever to ensure professional and credible facility and healthcare management systems are in place!
This is where we can assist. Not only are our services convenient and compliant, but they are also cost-effective which is equally as important as the financial cost implications of the pandemic are being far felt


  • Put measures in place for hygiene control.
  • Safeguard the health and wellbeing of learners, teachers, and support staff.
  • Provide safe and healthy teaching and learning environments.
  • Ensure that the necessary personal protective equipment items are in place

The installation, supervision, and regular re-filling of hygiene products, stock and equipment is the responsibility of the school principal/head of the institution.

General cleaning and disinfection of low and high touch surfaces, as well as routine environmental cleaning, is an essential part of disinfection and is stipulated by current regulation!
Organic matter can inactivate many disinfectants. Cleaning reduces the soil load, allowing the disinfectant to work. Removal of germs such as the virus that causes COVID-19 requires thorough cleaning followed by disinfection.
The length of time that the SARS-COV-2 virus (the cause of COVID-19) survives on inanimate surfaces will vary from hours to days, depending on factors such as the amount of contaminated body fluid, such as respiratory droplets present and environmental temperature and humidity.
In general, Coronaviruses are unlikely to survive for long once droplets produced by coughing or sneezing dry out. Regular cleaning and disinfection in schools are critical in controlling the spread of the COVID-19 virus.


Cleaning of minimally touched surfaces such as floors, walls, ceilings, blinds, etc. should be thoroughly cleaned! We adhere to the outlined regulation cleaning guidelines as follows:
  • Detergent solution/wipes are used as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Damp mopping
  • Walls and blinds are cleaned when visibly dusty or soiled.
  • Window curtains are cleaned regularly changed in addition to being cleaned when soiled.
  • Sinks and basins are cleaned regularly.

Cleaning and disinfection of high touch surfaces. Frequently touched surfaces are a high-risk for cross-transmission by pathogens that are transferred from people’s hands. Items such as door handles, light switches, lift buttons, working surfaces, tables, railings etc.
  • High touch areas in public places are cleaned and disinfected regularly and daily.
  • Clean general surfaces and fittings when visibly soiled and immediately.

Application of spray disinfectants.

  • Because COVID-19 infection is spread by droplets either through coughing, sneezing or from hands to surfaces, outdoor areas have less risk than crowded indoor areas, in part due to ventilation. Therefore, air spraying of outdoor environments is not essential. Pur focus is on the indoor crowded areas such as:
    • We spray floors, walls, and other internal surroundings in areas of high human traffic.
    • We spray communal showers and toilets.
Our daily cleaning duties include:

  • Cleaning of all surfaces e.g. floors, bathrooms twice daily with a disinfectant cleaner
  • Surfaces that are frequently touched, e.g. taps, doorknobs, reception desks are cleaned hourly or wiped down with disinfectant wipes
  • We collect all the bags with possible contaminated waste from classrooms and offices.
  • Complete cleaning rosters and checklists to be signed-off daily in compliance with the regulation!
