Keeping your office clean and safe during a pandemic.
It has been more than a year since the start of a pandemic. What is going on right now is unprecedented and we realize that you may be wondering how safe and clean your office is. Here, we talk about the safety of the people who work with you and the clients who visit your office.
It is paramount to keep going about business as usual but it is also important to take steps to ensure that our office are clean and safe, now more than ever.
Our E Cleaning team is here to give you some tips on steps you can take to keep your office clean and safe during an outbreak based on recommendations from the CDC.
1. TO STAY HOME IF SICK
In order to prevent the spread of a virus like coronavirus, people who are sick need to see a doctor stay at home. This is going to make a huge difference in whether or not others become infected.
2. WASH THEIR HANDS DILIGENTly
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the CDC both recommend that we all wash our hands often and for at least 20 seconds. WHO has a graphic that you can print out and post in your restrooms that shows proper handwashing technique. Handwashing is the best way to clean your hands. Soap+mechanical movement=clean hands
It is also suggested that people use hand sanitizer if soap and water are unavailable. Sanitizers that have 60% alcohol content or higher are considered to be good products.
3. WIPing DOWN on HIGH-TOUCH AREAS
Have your employees wipe down high-touch areas with cleaning alcohol wipes to disinfect and sanitize.
High-touch areas around the office include:
· Front Desk
· Door handles
· Lift Buttons
4. Wear a mask at all times
Another thing we should all practice is to wear a mask at all times, this will prevent virus from spreading through coughing or sneezing.
5. Practise safe distancing even in office
In order to prevent further spreading of virus, everyone must assume that everyone else had a virus. Staying a meter apart in office and even in meeting rooms is recommended by CDC. Avoid holding large events or gatherings.
6. Hire a professional OFFICE CLEANING company
If you don’t already have an office cleaning contract with a team that knows the ins and outs of cleaning for infection control, this is something to consider investing in – at least in the short-term. If you would like more information, feel free to contact us.
We hope that we have given you helpful information that will help reduce the risk of spreading infection in your office and encourage you to share these things with your employees.
