Unfortunately, as we all know, the COVID pandemic is continuing to impact the Canton area. At the same time, winter weather is starting to arrive with the first measurable snow. The combination of COVID and winter weather makes keeping your place of business clean and hygienic and increasingly difficult.
As a commercial cleaning company in Canton, we recommend the following cleaning strategies to local business owners:
Prioritize the Care of Your Floors
The floor is one of the first things customers notice about your business. Whether you have carpeting, vinyl tile, or concrete flooring, floors need to be kept clean and free of any potential hazards. During the winter, when customers track in snow, slush, water and grime, it’s easy for floors to become stained and more importantly, slippery. While your team should be prepared to handle any in-the-moment messes to preserve employee and customer safety, the best way to preserve the condition of and extend the life of your flooring is to have professional cleaners provide floor maintenance regularly.
Disinfecting and Sanitizing Surfaces Remains a Top Priority
While COVID is largely airborne, surface transmission of contagious diseases including the flu remains a top concern. For this reason, it’s important that both hard and soft surfaces inside your business are regularly cleaned, disinfected, and sanitized. It’s especially important to pay attention to areas that the public comes into contact with. Examples of critical surfaces include door knobs, door jambs, light switches, countertops, waiting area furniture, and bathrooms. Your team has likely been performing some of these sanitization duties already. However, for a medical grade thorough cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing experience, bringing in a Canton commercial cleaning company on a nightly, semi-weekly, or weekly basis makes sense. The busier your business is the greater the need for disinfecting and sanitization. This helps combat the traditional wintertime sicknesses like the flu and colds as well as COVID.
