COVID-19 showed that workplace safety is about more than reducing injuries. Faced with new responsibilities to keep the workforce safe, many companies shifted to remote work for much of 2020. Now with vaccines making a return to the office possible, it’s important to understand what is necessary to maintain a safe and hygienic workplace.
For most employers, the easiest, most cost-efficient way to ensure that workplace cleanliness is achieved is by hiring a commercial cleaning company. These skilled professionals come in when the office is not open, or during the slowest portion of the day (for facilities that operate 24/7) in order to clean the facility from top to bottom.
Many people are very nervous about life in a post-pandemic world. For this reason, your business facilities must appear to be very clean. Cleanliness is strongly associated with health in most people’s minds. What’s considered visible cleanliness? This includes your entranceway door and windows, as well as all public areas – reception counters, any windows or partitions, meeting rooms, treatment rooms and bathrooms.
For your employees’ health and peace of mind, all work areas also must be maintained at an acceptable level of cleanliness. This includes cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting all surfaces with medical grade products. Additionally, soft surfaces (upholstered furniture, some wall treatments and dividers) require regular cleaning and disinfection.
Carpet cleaning eliminates dirt, grime, and potentially harmful contaminants from underfoot while improving the appearance and smell of your facility. Additionally, regular carpet cleaning prolongs the life of your flooring. Other floor maintenance options include cleaning, stripping, and waxing hard floors. There are special cleaning services available for anti-static flooring.
If you’re not sure what cleaning services are appropriate for your office or how often you’ll need them performed, contact your Dedham commercial cleaning company. Commercial cleaning services are available on an as-needed basis, with weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly options available. A customer care service is available to field any special requests, such as special deep cleanings.
