The safety and well-being of our team and our visitors will always be our top priority at Head Over Heels.
Our COVID 19 Policy is in place to ensure all our customers can enjoy our facilities in a safe and fun environment.
To make sure our safety measures work effectively, we ask all visitors to work with us to help us all keep COVID safe.
The safety of our customers and staff is always our top priority at Head Over Heels. Here's an insight into the standard and additional steps we are taking to guarantee that our centres continue to meet and exceed the highest standards of safety and hygiene.
As part of the everyday processes at our centres, we have a dedicated cleaning team who work after hours to sanitise the play frame and toddler areas using antibacterial commercial spray killing 99.9% of bacteria within 30 seconds. The antibacterial cleaner we use (C25) contains benzalkonium Chloride which inactivates influenza. Steam cleaning kills viruses which is why we steam clean all floors including carpet using Duplex 420 floor steam cleaner and sanitiser which is used in hospitals, care homes and schools. Toilet walls, surfaces and floors are all cleaned with a Duplex Jet Vac steam cleaner as well as chemicals to clean the toilets.
In response to all the information we currently have available to us in relation to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we have taken the following additional steps to help protect the health and well-being of our team and customers. We are closely monitoring all government advice and putting the safety and well-being our customers and team at the forefront of all our decisions. We will revise this policy as soon as more information becomes available to us.
