Sanitisation and Disinfection Service
Rodents carry pathogens that can pose health and safety risks. These pests transmit potentially harmful diseases to humans through the consumption of contaminated food and water, contact with open wounds or by breathing in airborne allergens.
Additionally, most coronaviruses such as the COVID-19 can also spread through droplet transmission. These viruses lead to respiratory tract illnesses such as pneumonia or bronchitis.

Commercial and residential premises are places of high human traffic. This may result in highly contaminated common surfaces including desks, chairs, counters and toys. An effective surface sanitation through Rentokil’s disinfection misting treatment reduces disease-causing pathogens and provides you with a peace of mind. Rentokil’s Surface Shield treatment offers a safe decontamination and disinfection process through Ultra Low Volume (ULV)* misting with the below benefits:
*The ULV treatment disperses tiny water droplets into the atmosphere or surfaces to thoroughly decontaminate even hard-to-reach gaps.
A disinfection service is the application of disinfectant to surfaces in order to eliminate 99.99% of disease-carrying pathogens including bacteria and viruses. Certified specialists carry out proper disinfection service using a disinfection misting with proper decontamination processes.
There are four main types of pathogens namely virus, bacteria, fungi and parasites. They cause diseases including the flu, gastroenteritis and measles through viral infection, urinary tract infection and Lyme disease via bacterial infection. Pests can cause these diseases as well through transmission by cockroaches, rats and ants to name a few.
On top of regularly cleaning the place, it is important to disinfect 'high-touch' surfaces like doorknobs, table surfaces, light switches and any area where many people are likely to touch daily. A thorough disinfection will need to be done by a professional company and it is not safe enough to disinfect as one-off activity. If you observe more interaction and human traffic, you may want to consider increasing the disinfection misting frequency.
While disinfection and sanitisation is important in any time, it is especially crucial now as we face the ongoing COVID-19 virus transmission. In places where there is high human traffic and increase in activities in offices, schools and retail malls, pathogens can spread easily onto surfaces and can survive for a few hours or days. This results in cross contamination and thus making us sick when we picked up these pathogens. While regular cleaning can get rid of most germs, these areas are not disinfected to eliminate bacteria and viruses effectively.
The price of a disinfection service will vary according to the size of the place to be disinfected, the number and frequency of treatments required and the level of disinfection covering infected and non-infected premises.
Prevention is always better than cure. Therefore, engaging a professional disinfection specialist should be a regular occurrence so that they can pre-emptively disinfect surfaces before pathogens get a chance to spread. In particular with the ongoing virus transmission and more activities are opening up, we should engage a specialist as early and proactive as possible.
