Enhance your cleaning with kind and effective sanitising and disinfecting products from Dew! Infection control policies have been reviewed by early years services over the past 18 months in light of COVID-19. This was done in accordance with HPSC and Tusla’s Early Years Inspectorate Guidance and Information on how to operate a service successfully.
Part of this review is to ensure that ‘enhanced’ cleaning schedules are put in place. Services are required to implement strict cleaning and disinfecting measures. This should be done by cleaning frequently touched surfaces and objects and between sharing of any equipment by different play pods.
Due to enhanced cleaning, services are cleaning more and possibly using products that are harsh on surfaces, equipment and hands! If you are looking for a product that is kinder on you and kinder on your indoor and outdoor areas then check out our Dew range of products! These products are eco-friendly and non-alcohol based.
