We might sound like a broken record when it comes to office cleaning since we continuously remind you to ensure that it is carried out to its utmost thoroughness. However, we do this to emphasize the importance and criticalness of a clean office space for reasons ranging from health to productivity. We only mean to assist you, especially during these times, when sanitation is of primal importance. Our first and foremost goal is to keep our clients as safe and healthy as possible.
1. Implement cleaning sessions more frequently.
Different sources are discovering new information every day, regarding the shelf life of germs and bacteria that exist on surfaces. These can latch onto surfaces for long periods, and on top of that, with the constant traffic within an office space, thorough cleaning sessions should be implemented more frequently to ensure a healthy and safe space 24/7. If germs accumulate daily, why should the workspace only be cleaned once a week?
2. Always wear gloves and a mask.
At this point, it is unsafe to take any risks, and no precautions are too extreme. From now on, whoever is cleaning your office space should continuously be using gloves and a mask to avoid the spread of particles via close contact.
3. Wash your hands as soon as you touch a surface
Hand-washing and sanitizing should be conducted as often as possible, especially after you come in contact with a commonly touched surface.
4. Amp up ventilation systems and replace filters
Air ventilation is incredibly important when it comes to keeping office spaces germ-free. Harmful bacteria can spread through the air and circulate throughout a building, so by continually replacing filters, you can continuously enjoy a breath of fresh, uncontaminated air. After all, coronavirus particles can travel up to 13 feet, according to the CDC.
5. Change the orientation of the office.
One of the first steps of the new office-cleaning routine will entail a reorientation of the space. Countless sources are predicting that social distancing will become a norm in our culture, to avoid the spread of germs in general. This will likely include greater separations between desks and common seating areas, automatic doors and dispensers, and other tools that are either hand-free or require limited contact.
6. Sustainable and eco-friendly materials
With an increased focus on environmental sustainability, many industries are looking for ways in which they can improve their practices and decrease their carbon footprint. One way you can do this is by switching up the products used to clean your office space. There are several effective cleaning materials out there, free from harmful parabens and chemicals, that are not only better for the environment, but they are better for your health. You would be surprised how detrimental certain everyday products can be.
