Keeping workplaces clean has never been more important, with proper cleaning we can all help to slow the spread of COVID-19 and contract cleaning is one of the best ways to ensure this. Due to their professional knowledge mixed with dedicated staff members, contract cleaning services are part of the front-line workers who are keeping us safe during the pandemic.
Below, we talk about just a few of the many reasons businesses should consider daily contract cleaning if they are not already doing so.
There have been so many cases of coronavirus, a large portion of businesses have inevitably been exposed to the virus at some point.
If this has happened within a premise, proper deep cleaning and sanitising needs to take place to ensure everyone can return to work as soon as possible without the fear of contracting the virus.
Using a contract cleaning company means businesses don’t have to worry if they are using the right methods or products.
Contract cleaning professionals can even provide bio-fogging services within any workspace. This is a way of sterilising large areas in a matter of hours, with every area treated.
This uses a mist that can get rid of 100% of pathogens from floor to ceiling and everything in between and is safe to use even on soft furnishings.
Hand sanitiser, soap and other cleaning products are the key to staff, clients and visitors helping to do their bit to stop the spread, without this, bacteria and germs can be spread throughout the workplace during the day.
But without regular maintenance to ensure ample stock, this can quickly lead to individuals not taking the right precautions to protect themselves and others.
Commercial cleaning professionals can keep an eye on stock levels throughout the day to ensure all sanitation points always have what they need.
They will also monitor stock cupboards and ensure items are re-ordered with plenty of time of delivery to make sure nothing is ever out of stock.
When it comes to a good clean, it isn’t just the methods used, but the products as well. Businesses need to make sure that any cleaning product used is up for the task at hand.
Not everything in the market can kill COVID-19 and the products that do may not suit every surface in the office.
Professional commercial cleanings not only have the best products for the job but also know exactly how to use them. This means care and attention will be taken on delicate surfaces while still making sure that the virus is removed.
Not only will they use what is right for surfaces and purposes every time, but will also ensure safe storage of these. With such strong toxins, cross-contamination mustn’t happen and corrosive materials don’t cause damage if any leakage should occur.
All good professional cleaners are fully trained on COSHH and colour-coded cleaning making sure everything is handled correctly and with care, meaning people are kept safe.
Contract cleaning companies don’t just focus on the main areas, such as kitchen surfaces, washrooms and desks. They know every area that others may neglect during the cleaning routine.
Not only will all the obvious areas be left clean and safe, but also those overlooked items and spaces. Light switches, door handles, entry keypads and everything else that is touched frequently throughout the day will be given extra attention and care.
Even water cooler handles, microwaves doors and coffee machines will be sanitised daily or more frequently if required.
Especially in workspaces with high traffic, regular cleaning of these items can be one of the most effective ways to stop the spread of the virus.
Workplace budgets are being hit hard with having to provide employees with PPE so they can continue working safely.
Commercial office cleaners come fully equipped with their own and have the best knowledge and experience on how to properly use it.
With some businesses struggling to provide PPE to their employees due to stock shortages, they can even strike a deal with a contract cleaning company to provide PPE to their staff.
Bins aren’t usually emptied every day when they are not full, but during the pandemic, professional cleaners know how important this is.
Tissues, disposable coffee cups, plastic cutlery and anything else that comes into close contact with the user can easily spread bacteria around the office if not removed swiftly, even if they are in a bin.
Commercial cleaners can make sure this is dealt with swiftly and even make sure recycling and general waste is still separated.
Keeping colleagues safe is always at the forefront of businesses owner’s minds currently, by hiring contract cleaners, this worry can be removed from already very busy minds and it can be left to the professionals.
