Kill Bacteria In 30 Seconds, Gives Protection For 30 Days tWo services are an independent, family run business who are celebrating 30 years as cleaning and maintenance specialists for the facilities management and catering industries. We cover the whole of the uK including scotland, ireland and Wales. Our services are predominantly focused on the deep clean and maintenance of commercial kitchen facilities and ductwork, but we also provide specialist services such as sterile fumigation or ‘fogging. This service is particularly useful for care homes where bacteria and viruses can have devastating effects. Even with daily cleaning and disinfection regimes, preventing the spread of airborne and surface viruses like Norovirus, C-difficile, MRSA and E.coli, is a constant battle. Fortunately, there's a quick and easy way to stop them in their tracks. Our specialist, sterile fumigation process, uses a unique disinfecting agent to ‘fog’ specified rooms and areas. It kills bacteria in 30 seconds, eradicating 99.9% of

both airborne and surface-based germs, leaving barrier protection on surfaces for 30 days, even with subsequent cleaning. Independently tested to BSEN Standards, it is harmless to humans and animals, but deadly to bugs and has been used in care homes, schools, kitchens & operating theatres across the country. TWO Services’ General Manager, Margarita Dickson says, “The beauty is that it is safe, affordable and can be carried out with minimal disruption. In just 15 minutes, it quickly and effectively leaves surfaces and other hard to clean areas such as ceiling tiles, disinfected. The rooms can be used shortly afterwards, as unlike chlorine based agents, the chemical is completely non-toxic, non-irritant and non-corrosive. Certain bacteria actually thrive on the alcohol used in some sterilisation products, so this is the most effective way to prevent the spread of germs.” To find out more about fogging or any of our cleaning and maintenance services: Visit www.two-services.com, Email: hq@two-services.com Call: 0800 22 44 33 Twitter @TWO_Services LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/company/t.w.o.-services-ltd.

aNgLoPLas are a uK manufacturer who specialise in producing dispensers for the health and hygiene industry. although these are designed to keep the workplace tidy and uncluttered they are, more importantly, built knowing the control of healthcare-associated infections (HCais) are a priority for healthcare providers, and who are employing a combination of infection prevention and control strategies, including hand hygiene, cleaning, training and the adoption of new technologies, to tackle the problem. As a result, a wide range of infection control products and technologies are emerging on the market, including antimicrobial technology. With this in mind, during the summer of 2011 Angloplas became an official partner of BioCote® which allowed it to transfer production of

its dispensers, originally produced in a standard PVC material to the the world's first independently proven antimicrobial PVC with BioCote® silver ion technology. For non-clinical environments Angloplas has recently launched its new Budget Range of products which are made to the same exacting standards as the antimicrobial protected ones but with lower price tags. You can order Angloplas products directly from its website by going to www.angloplas.co.uk and clicking Hospital, Health and Hygiene or by using the Quick Response code. There you can use the easy online shopping system, or alternatively if you are NHS or an account customer, via an emailed or faxed purchase order.
