Have you thought about this? Questions to ask about facility cleaning, health, and safety

As the pandemic recedes, and new variants continue to raise a threat, businesses are faced with pressing questions regarding employee and customer safety. Questions about mitigating the spread of viruses, preparing for potential outbreaks, and improving ventilation are best answered by partnering with a reputable professional cleaning service that can provide ongoing support. 

Addressing the needs and concerns of the modern workplace is a multi-faceted endeavor. With so many variables to manage—from ongoing cleaning to contamination response — it’s a job best left to professional cleaning technicians. A reputable cleaning service can provide consultations and site assessments to provide recommendations based on best practices covering all aspects of cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting and meet your unique organization’s needs.

Here are some questions about your facility to consider:

Have you taken steps to prevent the spread of diseases in shared spaces?

There are dozens of high-touch point areas in a building – from door handles and elevator buttons to water fountains and refrigerators– where germs can potentially affect people. It’s important that shared surfaces are cleaned, sanitized, and disinfected by certified cleaning technicians to prevent the spread of infection. To ensure full coverage of these high touch point areas, professional cleaning services can create a custom plan to cover your facility’s unique needs.

How is the building prepared to increase air purification?

Air flow is the name of the virus mitigation game for viruses like COVID-19, the common cold, and the seasonal flu—all of which can be contracted through airborne particles. A study conducted by the CDC found that using HEPA air filters help to purify the air and reduce the aerosol exposure of people in a room by up to 65 percent. The filters worked best if they were located in the center of the room, close to the aerosol source. Professional cleaning services will be able to offer consultation on proper air purifier and UV placement.

Is there a plan for how to deep clean in the event of a viral outbreak? 

As in-person activities resume, businesses should partner with their cleaning provider to create a plan to manage potential viral outbreaks. Enhanced cleaning practices will ensure there is a deep clean of all surfaces as part of a total facility disinfection. Then trained technicians will use electrostatic sprayers to apply disinfectants in a controlled manner for effective disinfection distribution of hard-to-reach surfaces. These procedures can be best handled by cleaning technicians who are certified in the safe application of effective cleaning products.

Have you incorporated services to address the changing environment, like touchless strategies and signage? 

In addition to enhanced cleaning practices, professional cleaning services can offer additional support to reassure all who enter your facility about its cleanliness and safety. Informational flyers and emails keep everyone informed to build comfort as they return to work with the latest cleaning protocols and safety practices. Increasing the visibility of the cleaning staff during office hours with noticeable uniforms and descriptions such as “Disinfecting Team” helps to build confidence in the safety of the space. Additionally, services such as touchless strategies (like door pedals and auto light switches), temperature indicators and informational signs establish that your facility takes the health and wellbeing of all who enter seriously. 

The day-to-day logistics of keeping shared spaces clean have changed, and organizations need to adapt to adjust to those changes. It is not enough to dust a table or remove visible debris. Today, the priority is to clean — not only for appearance’s sake — with an increased focus on safety and health. In response to our changing world, we’ve established the Enhanced Kleen program which offers a variety of increased routine services as well as recommended one-time services and services to address the changing environment.
