While there have been many improvements in coping with this virus, new cases are happening daily. So, it is we all must take precautions to keep our living and working environments safe. In Part l, we discussed ways to keep your home or living environment safe. In this part, we will discuss tips to help make your commercial, which is an office and industrial spaces, safe during COVID.
One of the major problems with preventing COVID on a large scale is how to sanitize main areas such as hallways, public bathrooms, reception and waiting areas, and entryways. For the most part, there is little a nonprofessional person can do apart from wearing a face mask and practicing social distancing and thorough hand washing. There are, however, a variety of sanitation techniques a professional cleaning servicecan administer. Some of these include:
Regular vacuuming followed by a sanitizing floor wash.
Intense cleaning of all bathrooms with particular emphasis on toilets, sinks, counters, and receptacles of any kind. Making sure all special soap containers are kept full in important as well.
Intense cleaning of employee break areas taking particular care to clean countertops, tabletops, chair seats, microwaves, fridges, and open shelves.
Wiping down walls from about seven feet up with a sanitizing solution and including all doors, door frames, and baseboards.
Using a sanitizing solution to wipe all door handles and light switches.
Some buildings have specialized equipment such as medical or dental, and almost all offices have computers and other large types of equipment. These features must be carefully wiped down with an appropriate solution on a soft cloth.
All waste receptacles must be emptied daily, and the contents bagged in closed plastic bags which are to be removed from the premise. Containers must be cleaned and sprayed with disinfectant.
Furniture in reception areas, waiting rooms, and conference offices must be wiped down and sprayed appropriately. A professional cleaning service will know what is best for which type of wood and fabric.
When an area has been completely sanitized, it should be sprayed with a disinfectant capable of killing the coronavirus.
In these times, it is imperative to find a professional cleaning service that not only understands the proper method and products to use but also how to use them correctly. Additionally, all workers must be trained and must themselves wear masks, practice social distancing, and adhere to all CDC guidelines when working within the commercial confines.
