Mitie has launched a new cleaning service with the UK’s first cleaning product proven to kill COVID-191 on surfaces for six months2, Citrox Protect
As part of a new specialist service, Mitie cleans, seals and protects all touchpoint surfaces, offering ongoing protection against the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses for six months
Citrox Protect is chemical-free and non-toxic and produced from all-natural materials
Mitie is the only UK FM provider to offer Citrox Protect, which kills 99.9998% of all known viruses and bacteria, including COVID-19. The product works in two parts. The silicon dioxide forms a natural barrier which coats surfaces to prevent viruses or bacteria from being able to bind to them. Meanwhile, any viruses or bacteria that do land on the surface are killed by the Citrox. The effects of Citrox Protect last for six months, the longest ongoing protection on the market. The product is applied by trained biotechnicians as part of a specialist sanitisation clean, with the product dry to the touch within minutes and fully sealed in 24 hours.
As both silicon dioxide and Citrox are natural compounds, Citrox Protect is non-toxic and safe to be used on food preparation surfaces, as well as being Microsoft approved for use on technology. This makes Citrox Protect ideal for all work environments – from desks, phones and laptops, through to kitchens or retail displays.
