Neil has acquired the Sanondaf license to operate in Cardiff and the surrounding area offering the full range of infection control and prevention services to both commercial and domestic sector clients. Neil comments "Hygiene is such an essential process for any business or person to consider and I was keen to acquire Sanondaf and allow this specialist treatment process to be available in South Wales. I am particularly proud to be the first franchisee in Wales and have ambitious plans to grow and develop across the region."
