Fridge Decontamination

Whenever disposing of a refrigerated item, it is important to ensure that they are decontaminated prior to collection to ensure no risk of disease or risk to human health.

Decontamination services may be as simple as removing your food from the fridge and giving it a good clean, however, if your fridge has been contaminated with decomposed food, heavy mould or overly pungent odours, you may not want to touch this yourself, in which case, we are able to assist with the cleansing services and disposal. Laboratory fridges must also be strictly be decontaminated and again, we can assist where required.
