Covid-19 - Thursday 9th April 2020
Residents and employees have contacted the Management Office with concerns about the numbers of people congregating and sunbathing in the gardens last weekend, general visitors and non-essential deliveries to the Estate. The Government regulations are very clear that you should only leave your home for very limited reasons; these are as follows:
1. Shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, as infrequently as possible
2. One form of exercise per day, for example a run, walk, or cycle-alone or with members of your household
3. Any medical need, including to donate blood, avoid risk of harm, provide care or help to a vulnerable person
4. Travelling for work purposes, but only where you cannot work from home
Please refrain from situations whereby residents and employees of the Estate are put in harms way, particularly for our staff who have to engage unnecessarily with those who are not following the Government guidelines.
Staying safe at Kings Chelsea – Social Interaction
There are many residents taking the opportunity in exercising and walking around the development during the current lockdown. The footpaths around the development are narrow so please adhere to the social distancing rules which is 6 feet apart from others. In addition, when using the common parts in the buildings please do not enter a lift should it be occupied but wait and call another lift. Similarly, when people are exiting lifts please stand back to permit a safe distance of two meters apart where possible, likewise when passing in corridors or on the stairwells.
Once again, we also ask that children do not ride their bikes or play football games, nor residents congregate on footpaths or lawns as this creates unnecessary interaction and prevents others from passing safely by.
Please continue to follow the Government health advice which you can find at www.gov.uk/coronavirus
Cleaning of Common Parts / Precautionary Bio Clean:
A biological clean in all common part areas of the residential buildings has now been arranged as a precautionary and preventative method of sanitizing. There are some residents that are self-isolating and the foot fall in the common parts continues to be relatively high due to the need for residents to go out for provisions etc. Bio cleaning can protect the common part areas after carrying out sanitizing for up to and around 20 days as the products stay active on surfaces and soft furnishings for this length of time. We hope that this initiative will help to mitigate and reduce the likelihood of any potential bacteria. The dates and times for this super clean in the common parts of each building will be as follows:
Tuesday 14 April / Works commencing from 8pm and finishing at 11.00pm
Wednesday 15 April / Works commencing from 8pm and finishing at 11.00pm
Thursday 16 April / Works commencing from 8pm and finishing at 11.00pm
Friday 17 April / Works commencing from 8pm and finishing at 11.00pm
The Cleaning Process – Fogging
Whilst manual cleaning by spraying and wiping methods are the best practice to treat surfaces, fogging is an ideal solution both for combating airborne pathogens and disinfecting larger areas. Fogging comprehensively delivers across a range of surfaces and materials including textiles, micro-droplets of disinfectant and biocides that float in the air for around 30 minutes after application and are attracted to land underneath, on top of and on the sides of surfaces in the same way that the viruses and other pathogenic microbes would do, creating a virtual film of protection after drying-out because of its polymer backbone composition. Spraying would not get to this hard to reach surfaces, this is why fogging significantly increases the biocidal efficiency of the chemicals.
The Chemicals Used
The chemicals used for the cleaning process are suitable for office environments, offer no residual risk, would not cause allergies, are classed as Food Safe, non-corrosive, Fresh Scent or Odourless, water-based antimicrobial biocidal with multi-surface broad spectrum kill and residual control. The chemicals operate in Nanoscopic Level Activity, safe for humans and too small to harm people. They can be used on Surfaces, Hands, Rooms, Spraying, Fogging, Wiping, Foaming, Moping, offer no significant impact on the environment nor to humans.
Cooperation of Residents
As a precautionary measure whilst the cleaning is being undertaken in the corridors of your building, we ask that all residents remain inside their apartments for one hour. Noise will be very minimal.
