Disinfecting Commercial Offices During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Crisis
Working in an office, many people including co-workers, clients, repair people and others walk in touching various surfaces. In commercial office spaces, at any time, but especially during the flu season or this pandemic, commercial cleaning companies should be disinfecting high-touch surfaces such as light switches, doorknobs, and computer keyboards daily. This is especially true when employees are found to be sick with a bacterial or viral illness.
Personal telephones and computer keyboards should also be disinfected several times throughout the day by the person using that work area. Hospital-grade disinfectants are not needed in a commercial office because they can expose employees to unnecessary levels of toxins. Professional commercial office cleaning companies use safe and often organic products that can effectively kill dangerous pathogens. To avoid outbreak situations in your office, professional cleaning companies will implement the use of disinfecting products that will destroy viruses and bacteria. It is also vital that these products be used properly and according to directions to ensure their effectiveness.
Considering the number of surfaces in the average office building and the number of people that come in contact with those surfaces such as conference tables and chairs, door handles, floors, restrooms, break rooms, copy machines and more, it is essential that regular disinfecting and sanitizing should be a priority. It is the business owner’s responsibility to ensure the safest work environment possible. Cleaning professionals have the skills, knowledge and tools that help them complete that job efficiently and effectively.
Set Up a Regular Cleaning Schedule, and remember, cleaning is not the same as disinfecting or sanitizing. You need to focus on disinfecting which will kill the germs and bacteria that cannot be seen. Germs are found everywhere, even in places where you least expect them. In your office, start cleaning places that you do not clean often. In addition to the most used areas in the office, include the walls, doorways and other areas that have collected germs, dirt, dust and debris over the years.
Your office is more than a place to work. It’s a place for socialization, relaxation and collaboration. You need to maintain not just clean the office, but one that is fee of bacteria in order it to maintain good health for yourself and your employees. Your employees are essential to your business so it is important that you do all you can to keep them healthy, happy and safe.
