The importance of maintaining good cleaning standards

As lockdown measures have been eased and the country tries to get back to some kind of normality, it is just as important as ever to ensure a clean, hygienic and safe environment for yourself, your employees, your customers, your pupils, your patients or whoever comes into your building.

We have been living with COVID-19 for almost a year and a half now, longer than a lot thought and it does not look like it’s going away any time soon. In fact, it is highly likely that it will never go away and that we will have to find a way to live with it.

This means that businesses have had to change the way that they operate to accommodate the ‘new normal’. Including the cleaning, here are some pointers to help you maintain good cleaning standards…

Revisiting Cleaning Regimes

Are the current cleaning regimes, thorough and regular enough to ensure that premises are as clean and hygienic as possible?

The last thing that any business would want, is for an employee or a customer to potentially contract something after visiting their premises.

Many businesses are now choosing to outsource cleaning to professionals for both deep cleans ahead of reopening and ongoing, daily cleaning to ensure of a clean and hygienic environment.Products & Processes Effectiveness

Check that cleaning products and processes are effective against viruses, bacteria and infections.

The manufacturer of the product or piece of equipment will also recommend the most effective way of using it. I.e. application, dwell time and other specific instructions for best use.

Employee & Customer Reassurance 

By having proper cleaning measures in place, it is reassuring for employees and customers to know that a business is doing everything that it can to ensure that the environment is clean, hygienic and safe.

Some businesses choose to have visible cleaning throughout the day for that extra peace of mind. High touch point cleaning is an excellent cleaning regime for this, ensuring the most touched places are sanitised often.

Keep on top of high touchpoint areas

Ensure your high touch point areas such as door handles, hand rails and touch plates are cleaned more frequently
