Oven Cleaning

Our deep cleaning team understand that Burnt-on grease and sticky food debris accumulate on ovens and are notoriously tricky to remove. Getting rid of those greasy patches can be a daunting and laborious task. On top of that, burnt-on oil and fat can contribute to your appliance’s malfunction and shorten its life. Not to mention the hygienic aspect of baking and roasting in a dirty oven.

To avoid it, it is recommended that your oven or cooker receives a systematic cleaning service. Lakethorne Groups preferred oven cleaner provided by Avica is specifically designed to cut through oil, grease, and fatty deposits often found in and around the top of ovens and grills, it features a highly effective solution to remove staining and provide a brilliant finish to your hobs and oven fronts. The cleaner deeply cleanses and removes baked-on stains typically found on the floor of the oven, which helps the efficiency of these machines and helps to give them a longer life. The cleaning of the ovens will happen during our periodic cleaning schedule


Virus Protection

The current climate makes for an even more stressful time for School’s facilities team, Lakethorne on-site operatives will not only have refresher cross contamination training, but they will also have access to the below process especially developed for COVID-19 and schools.

COVID-19 has challenged us to form alliances with chemical and equipment manufactures to help in the design of the next level of bacteria fighting material and innovational cleaning equipment. This partnership has allowed us to develop an enhanced COVID-19 fighting operating model which provides a cost effect way of supporting our existing cleaning arrangements.

 Our revised cleaning model offers two additional stages to our standard cleaning service. Detail below are the three stages to protecting your working environment, staff, visitors and building users.

Stage One – Maintain an effective cleaning solution As a Lakethorne customer you can expect that staff working on your premises are using professional grade cleaning chemical and equipment and are following a detailed cleaning specification. Due to the current lockdown procedures, we are providing varying levels of cover to existing customers which have included more staff for businesses who remain open and reductions in some areas for customers who have been forced to close temporarily. No matter how the pandemic has affected your business we remain committed to deploying staff who are well trained, motivated and work to an agreed and structured shift pattern, supported by our team of dedicated area managers.

 Stage Two – Effective testing & monitoring During these uncertain times we believe it important to evidence to our customers that your cleaning service is measured and evidenced as effective and fit for purpose. To achieve this will can provide regular ATP swab testing to offer rapid validation of your cleaning regime. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is an enzyme that is present in all living cells, and an ATP monitoring system can detect the amount of organic matter that remains after cleaning. These tests will be managed by our compliance team and can be conducted during a joint inspection process allowing for results to be shared with your building management and stakeholders within 60 seconds of the test.

 Stage Three – ULV fogging providing a protective barrier The final stage of our revised offer allows for a complete sanitisation of your premises using Ultra Low Volume fogging. ULV Fogging is used to disinfect many types of environments and is very common in the medical sector where exceptional hygiene standards are a prerequisite. ULV works by generating a fog or mist formed by Ultra Low Volume droplets between 5 – 50 Microns in Diameter.

Our medical grade chemical is projected into the atmosphere where it disperses onto all vertical and horizontal surfaces killing the following known viruses: Ebola, Coronavirus, Hepatitis, Rabies Virus, Influenza Virus and many more.

All additional services Lakethorne provides are subject to site surveys; we will be able to provide costs once these have been conducted
