  • Why we are different
    • We are different because we need to be – Common approaches do not work. This includes:

    • Tara Support Services
      Lack of Knowledge

      Often Businesses are unaware of the new, more effective approaches to hygiene;

      Tara Support Services
      Commercial Short Cuts

      Often small, short cuts to save money lead to the whole cleaning regime being ineffective;

      Tara Support Services
      Chemical Overuse

      Often chemicals commonly used lead to harm and reduction of immunity.

    • We are independent – A lot of companies use particular products because of commercial relationships; we vow to never tie ourselves to using one particular product or method for our own gain but instead educate and offer the many alternative, better methods that emerge;

    • The approach we take – Often people don’t know if cleaning is working. We adopt an holistic method that makes sure we know what needs done and if it’s working.

    • Tara Support Services
      Clean

      We first remove all germs from the surface before adding anything onto it;

      Treat

      We then use methods to ensure surfaces are clean and can resist germs;

      We then make sure it’s working.

      We make sure all who work near or clean the surfaces understand how to maintain hygiene.

    • Our products – We have unique arrangements with a range of providers to ensure we use innovative, sustainable and effective products. This includes harmless liquids such as Hypochlorous Acid HOCL which is changing the way we clean, ozone gases and the equipment that can be used to treat surfaces.

  • What we do

    • The way we work is different to the vast majority of cleaning companies. There are several reasons why and the how revolves around the following 4 simple principles:

    • Tara Support Services
      Treat

      Once a surface has been cleaned we use innovative and sustainable methods to disinfect surfaces in ways that saves on downtime for your business. These methods include:

      • Electrostatic Spraying;

      • Fogging

      • UVC and

      • Ozone gas.

      Although we promote the use of sustainable products where possible we can also use the more traditional approach to liquid disinfectants including the Quats, Hydrogen peroxide, AO, PCO and other proven virucidal treatments.

      Test

      Crucially we ensure whether our services and your staff’s cleaning regimes are working. This vital information informs future behaviour of staff as well as providing real peace of mind for your organisation. We will design and implement surface testing regimes with reporting procedures using a range of methods such as:

      • ATP Testing – This quick and effective test allows us to determine the cleanliness of surfaces;

      • Swab Testing – Taking samples from surfaces will allow laboratory based testing to identify the exact nature of what was found on the surface; and

      • Visible Verification – This involves using a disclosing solution to determine if protein residue is on a surface providing a fast and effective method in changing staff behaviour.

      From our 30 years experience we know how crucial staff behaviour is in ensuring ongoing hygiene. We have effective training techniques that change these behaviours to include areas such as:
      • Correct Hand Washing technique using fluorescent lotions;
      • Cleaning for health (Cleaning the unseen);
      • Practical solutions to avoid cross contamination;
      • Disinfectant spraying using client equipment;
      • Disinfectant fogging using client equipment; and
      • Surface test using ATP, Swaps and disclosing solution.

      A vital way to change behaviour is to show people how clean surfaces are. We employ florescence sprays or UVC disclosing lamps that are randomly/discreetly applied to hard and soft surfaces which are then monitored to ensure that an effective cleaning regime is in place.

  • What we use and Supply
