If you’ve returned to the office after a long period of working from home, it’s vital to keep your workplace clean to prevent the spread of Covid-19. You may need to make changes to your usual cleaning schedule, such as cleaning surfaces you wouldn’t normally or increasing the amount of cleaning carried out in your premises.
We’ve put together some tips for cleaning your premises during the pandemic, helping to keep your colleagues safe and making sure your business follows government guidelines.
Use high-quality products proven to kill Covid-19
It is essential to use high-quality products that have been tried, tested and proven to kill Covid-19. Do your research and choose only the best products that kill bacteria and viruses, looking out for products that have been certified to eliminate the Covid-19 virus. Using low-quality products to clean your workplace is futile as bacteria and viruses can remain on your surfaces even after cleaning.
Ensure that your premises is well ventilated so that odours from strong cleaning products do not linger for too long.
Clean all workplace touch points and surfaces
Cleaning all surfaces in your office that are regularly touched is essential to reduce the spread of Covid-19 amongst your colleagues. The more people who touch a surface, the higher the risk. Prioritize cleaning frequently touched surfaces – ideally at least once a day.
Touchpoints with high traffic include door handles, window handles, light switches, lift buttons, shared devices, and taps.
Office kitchens, canteens and break rooms are also full of highly touched surfaces, including kettles, microwaves, washing up utensils, drawer handles and fridge handles.
Office surfaces like desks, tables, partitions, Covid-19 screens, laptops, keyboards, kitchen worktops and windows also need regular cleaning to eliminate any lingering coronavirus particles.
Hire a professional cleaner for workplace Covid-19 cleaning
It may be beneficial for your business to arrange a professional cleaning service to ensure that your premises are regularly cleaned to the highest standard.
Professionals will thoroughly and efficiently clean your workplace, identifying key touchpoints and using trusted, high-quality products to remove all traces of Covid-19 to reduce the spread amongst your staff.
