Commercial Cleaning and Coronavirus
The recent outbreak of COVID-19 has compelled facility managers to seek professional commercial cleaning companies to ensure the safety of their staff and clients. In light of the virus spreading across nearly every state, businesses are increasingly realizing the significance of maintaining clean and sanitized facilities to reduce the risk of infection.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises that the virus can remain viable on various surfaces for hours to days. This underscores the importance of regular cleaning and disinfection to safeguard the well-being of your clients and employees. High-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, elevator buttons, desks, tables, faucets, sinks, and toilets need consistent cleaning and disinfection to minimize the spread of the virus. Moreover, several other areas in your facility can be potential breeding grounds for bacteria and viruses.
Engaging the services of a professional commercial cleaning company ensures thorough cleaning and disinfection of these areas. Complete Care Maintenance is dedicated to ensuring that your facility is virus-free, and we can perform our cleaning services after hours to minimize interactions with your staff and customers.
Besides professional cleaning, there are several practical steps you can take to maintain a safe environment for your customers and staff. The CDC has issued guidelines that are instrumental in ensuring safety and preventing the spread of the virus:
Regular Hand Washing:
Promote and encourage regular hand washing for your staff and customers. Ensure the availability of hand sanitizers for use.
Discourage close personal interactions and maintain a minimum distance of 6 feet from others. Advise individuals who feel unwell to stay home and self-quarantine for at least 14 days.
Hygiene and Shared Items:
Encourage staff not to share items like coffee cups, borrow pens and pencils, and avoid using communal water coolers. Provide disinfecting wipes in break areas and common spaces for everyone to use. Items like microwaves, coffee pots, doorknobs, and food prep areas should be routinely wiped down.
Make sure that workspaces, desks, keyboards, external pointing devices, and office equipment such as printers, copiers, and shredders are wiped down before and after use. Equip areas with disinfecting wipes to facilitate cleaning.
Maintaining a clean and virus-free work environment is vital, especially during this pandemic. A professional cleaning staff can ensure that your place of business is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after hours, providing a safe space for your employees to work. While these are challenging times, we can all contribute to reducing the impact of the virus by ensuring clean and sanitary commercial spaces.
With professional cleaning, rigorous safety measures, and cooperative efforts, we can navigate through this trying period and promote a safe and healthy environment for all.
