Protecting Office Spaces

Protecting Office Spaces

By : Mister Kleen November 3, 2021 Comments off

More than ever, businesses must consider the wellbeing of everyone who enter their doors each day. Professional cleaning services are poised to help address today’s new concerns, and lessen the potential risks associated for office and communal work.

MANAGING RISKS

Just as a flood could arise from a leaky pipe or a fire could spark from faulty equipment, the outbreak of illnesses is a new type of hazard to manage. Viruses like COVID-19 and the seasonal flu can cause major disruptions in service, reduced productivity, and profit loss—an estimated $225 billion annually, according to the CDC Foundation.

A clean office is one way to help reassure everyone who enters a building that they, and the space they are in, are being cared for. Professional cleaning services can work to keep offices clean through techniques like increased disinfection of common high-traffic and high touch point areas, specialized deep-cleaning sessions, and preventative electrostatic spray applications.

At Mister Kleen, we’ve established the Enhanced Kleen program to address these shifting priorities with new techniques, time, and training.

STAYING SAFE

Professional services can help their customers create a plan to address each businesses unique challenges, while staying within budget. Certified cleaning technicians are trained to keep environments as clean as possible by using a variety of approaches, methods, and tools.

Let’s start by understanding the difference between each method:

Cleaning is a necessary first step so that sanitizing or disinfecting can work effectively. Cleaning by using soap (or detergent) and water will remove dirt and debris, but it doesn’t kill bacteria or viruses.

Sanitizing lowers the number of bacteria on surfaces to a safe level based on public health standards. Sanitizers don’t kill viruses, so in facilities with severe viral outbreaks including COVID-19, disinfection is required.

Disinfecting kills viruses and bacteria on hard, nonporous surfaces by using EPA-registered chemicals. Disinfectants do not kill germs continuously or after recontamination, so frequent reapplication is required to prevent the spread of infection.

Since cleaning technicians are versed in choosing which approach to take for specific high-touch areas, this can offer an added level of coverage for your business.

NEW TOOLS

Today’s approach requires maintenance crews to use new tools to provide a safer and healthier building for occupants and visitors. Cleaning equipment such as electrostatic spraying can be used to deep clean facilities that have suspected or confirmed COVID-19 cases. This specialized spraying technique is also part of routine cleaning programs to help prevent potential outbreaks.

Enhanced deep cleaning requires not only removing surface debris, but also disinfecting hard surfaces and treating soft, porous surfaces such as carpets, drapes, and upholstered furniture. To help lessen the spread of illnesses, these cleaning tools and products must be applied correctly and safely.

Additional mitigation techniques such as air purifiers, UV disinfecting, temperature indicators and directional signage can help customers and employees feel clean and safe. Touchless strategies such as hand sanitizer stands, door pedals, auto light switches, wall separators and other touchless technology can help reduce risk of the spread of illnesses.

LOOKING AHEAD

Investing in the proper cleaning of a workspace is one way to help protect workers and visitors, and to support daily operations in running smoothly. By partnering with professional cleaning services and hiring trained cleaning staff on site, businesses can reassure employees and visitors that they are taking today’s new working conditions seriously.
