Gelder Group’s Xeric Team Providing Covid-19 Thermal Fogging Service

A system more widely used as a deodorising process when reinstating fire and smoke damaged properties, or for sanitising in flood damaged properties for insurance companies, the team at Xeric are now using their equipment to give individuals, organisations and companies piece of mind in the fight against Coronavirus.

Fogging is a process were sanitiser/deodoriser or in this case a biocidal cleaner is heated and sprayed in a fog form. Micro droplets hang in the air for approximately 10 minutes and then cover all areas often missed by conventional cleaning methods and because it’s in a fog form, the mixture is able to permeate even the toughest to reach spots, killing all airborne, surface viruses and bacteria it comes in to contact with. Furthermore, after fogging has taken place, the residual disinfectant, which is invisible to the naked eye, will continue to kill any virus’s it comes in to contact with.

Treatment is non-toxic, odourless and starts at just a few hundred pounds. The technique is very quick to carry out, with properties completely safe to re-occupy after just two hours and with the further benefit of the formula used killing 99.9999% of all bacteria, viruses, yeasts & spores; not just Covid 19.

Xeric is a Gelder Group company that operates the UK’s largest fleet of trailer mounted high energy drying equipment for more information visit

Gelder Group Secures Framework with Procure Partnership

Procure Partnership

Gelder Group are one of the thirty-nine firms that have secured places on Procure Partnerships minor works framework to be used by clients across 10 regions in England and Wales and used by local authorities, NHS Trusts, Universities and Blue Light Providers.

Gelder Group secured Lots 5 (£50k – £1m) and Lot 6 (£1m – £4m)

Framework director Robbie Blackhurst said:

The addition of the Procure Partnerships Minor Works Framework to the previously procured Major Works framework means that we can now offer public sector bodies a one-stop shop to compliantly procure contractors to deliver their projects ranging from as little as £50k right up to £100m plus.

The framework is not even 24 hours old and we have already began to procure our first sub £4m projects through it, which reflects the market need for a strong minor works framework, with local contractors across England and Wales and that the winning firms could enjoy a £2.5bn work pipeline over the next four years.

For more information about our involvement with frameworks, please get in touch.
