English Premier League club West Ham United has been working in partnership with commercial cleaning and decontamination specialist ICE Cleaning to mitigate the spread of viruses, including Covid-19, at London Stadium and the club’s facilities.
As part of this, ICE Cleaning has been appointed as West Ham’s official cleaning contractor, with the responsibility of consistently providing the safest and most hygienic environment for its players, employees and supporters.
ICE Cleaning’s decontamination solution, ICE Shield, uses electrostatic technology that is said to “destroy 99.9% of traces of coronavirus and other bacteria and viruses on surfaces within a working environment. This persistent solution, which can last for up to 28 days, guarantees long-lasting protection as part of a monthly cleaning regime.”
Zac Hemming, founding director of ICE Cleaning, said: “Like any commercial business that has been able to open its doors throughout this pandemic, football clubs have had, and continue to have, a huge responsibility to ensure they are implementing the strictest health and safety measures to protect the wellbeing of all individuals.
“Maintaining a safe environment is therefore absolutely paramount. For West Ham United, we’ve taken this to the highest level, with our daily commercial cleans supplemented every 14 days by a comprehensive decontamination service that uses innovative cleaning technology for maximum protection.”
“The fact that West Ham United is implementing a complete decontamination deep clean every 14 days shows just how seriously the Club is taking its commitment to combatting coronavirus and preventing any other harmful bacteria from spreading within the training and wider facilities,” continued Hemming.
“This is giving the Club peace of mind that their changing rooms, restrooms, training facilities and meeting rooms are protected for 14 days. What’s more, as our solutions are non-toxic and non-abrasive, they do not cause any damage to physical surfaces or human health, which enables players to continue practicing just 15 minutes after the cleaning services have taken place.”
