For any business, hygiene and cleanliness should always be a priority, especially for environments such as medical facilities and restaurants. The importance of hygiene has never been so important, with the current health pandemic highlighting this.
Depending on the industry your business falls under, you may not have a very thorough cleaning regime. For places like office environments, it’s likely you employ a cleaner to come at the end of the day and clean surfaces, change bin liners etc. Although this can maintain a clean and hygienic place of work, it may no longer be enough.
The outbreak of COVID-19 now means that all businesses cleaning regimes need to be stepped up a level and become more intense. You may not be aware of it, but there are actually a number of different levels of cleaning, all of which target different levels of hygiene and cleanliness. To put some content around this, Ideal Response Group have created a visual which contains 6 levels of cleaning which businesses can focus on.
Below are some of the examples.
Although the majority of businesses will be aware of what a deep clean is, it’s more than likely it was only carried out once a week, if not less. A deep clean may now need to be the new routine clean; but what does this process involve?
The aim of a deep clean is to reach hidden areas where dirt and germs can accumulate. For example, if you work in an office and want to conduct a deep clean, you need to move any items of furniture and clean the area underneath and behind. Surfaces also need to be cleaned with an antibacterial spray or a similar product, as well as any equipment such as computers etc.
As we’re constantly being reminded of how good hand hygiene can stop the spread of COVID-19, it may be time for your business to consider a hygiene clean around your place of work.
Once a deep clean has been carried out, hygiene cleaning can take this level one step further. As germs can often gather on frequently touched areas such as surfaces and door handles, hygiene cleaning can fight against this. The process works by an antimicrobial cleansing product being applied to the areas of concern, such as a door handles. The product acts as a sanitizer and will help minimize the amount of germs and bacteria building.
These are just two of the 6 cleaning levels outlined by Ideal Response Group, but you can see how beneficial they can be for your business. It’s important businesses do their bit to make sure maximum cleanliness and hygiene is maintained for both employees and customers, as well as helping to reduce the spread of the virus..
