After a long year of isolation, people are making use of shared spaces and communal areas such as study lounges and break rooms once again. However, COVID is far from being over. There’s anxiety and concern about how safe it is to be in a shared space or communal area. The key to alleviating this anxiety: visibly high standards of cleanliness.
Cleanliness and health are strongly correlated. The word hygiene literally means maintaining health and preventing disease through cleanliness and sanitation. Employees and customers alike want to know they are safe as possible within your facility.
In shared spaces, there are several types of surfaces to be cleaned, sanitized and disinfected. These tasks are typically performed by professional office cleaning services in Stoughton.
Let’s begin with the hard surfaces. Many people are familiar with the idea that viruses can live on hard surfaces, perhaps from seeing cruise ships being disinfected after norovirus outbreaks. COVID is constantly evolving, but we know so far that the virus can linger on hard surfaces for between 4-6 days. We also know, through extensive research, that the virus can be eliminated from hard surfaces with proper cleaning and disinfecting techniques.
In shared spaces, these hard surfaces can take the form of counters, tables, chairs, light switches, door handles, tv remotes, and so on. Add to this all of the surfaces in any bathroom or kitchen areas. The best Stoughton office cleaning service uses medical grade cleaning, disinfection, and sanitizing products in all shared spaces and communal areas, including waiting rooms and reception areas, workplace huddle rooms, conference rooms, break rooms and more.
Upholstery cleaning ensures all couches, chairs, and other similar furniture is clean and sanitized properly. Commercial carpet cleaning and floor maintenance rounds out the picture. Having these services performed regularly – most businesses opt for 2-3 nights a week, unless they’re very busy, in which case nightly cleaning is available – helps keep your place of business healthy for your employees and customers.
