The lockdowns that occurred when the pandemic began in 2020 caused many of us to shift to a remote work format. Now that COVID-19 cases are decreasing, many feel comfortable enough to return to the office. But why would employees want to give up the convenience that comes with working from home? To offer the best of both work formats, many workplaces are implementing hybrid work schedules. However, since a hybrid work format requires fewer days at the office, you’re probably wondering how often it will need cleaning. To help you navigate the cleaning requirements of this new work schedule, we listed some helpful tips below.
Make a new cleaning schedule:
Now that you’ve made a new work schedule, it’s time to make a new cleaning schedule. How often you clean depends upon the frequency of your time in the office. Some hybrid work models meet every other day and others meet once per week. However, even if you and your employees only meet once per week, we still recommend a weekly cleaning. The weekly cleaning doesn’t always need to be an intense and thorough session. But disinfecting the shared workspace areas is crucial to prevent the spread of germs. Therefore, your weekly cleaning session can be very simple and just include a few disinfection precautions. However, you should also dedicate a more thorough cleaning session once per month to clean the floors, furniture, windows, and other areas you don’t get to in your weekly cleaning sessions.
Disinfect hybrid work areas after every meeting:
Since many hybrid workspaces have large shared spaces such as conference rooms, your employees don’t have their personal designated work area. Therefore, the spread of germs around the office is much more likely. Although you won’t be meeting in the office as frequently, quickly disinfecting the desk and workspaces after every meeting is a wise idea to ensure active viruses and pathogens don’t infect the next group of employees that will hold a meeting in the office.
