The news that travelers from Uganda to the US will now be screened for Ebola is a fresh reminder that this country is far from out of the woods when it comes to concerns about infectious diseases. The fall is often the beginning of cold and flu season here in the Boston area, and many people are still concerned about COVID.
In this article, we’re going to talk about how office cleanliness can help keep employees and customers healthy and happy. The particular type of office cleanliness discussed is the sort that is provided by Woburn office cleaning services and other janitorial professionals, including vacuuming, trash removal, disinfecting hard surfaces, cleaning the bathroom and more. You may think these services are provided to keep a business looking attractive and respectable, which is true, but they also have an additional public health benefit.
Diseases spread when germs, viruses and bacteria are transmitted from one person to another. There are a number of ways this can happen – through the air, through contact with body fluids, and from surface transmission. Surface transmission is when disease is left on a surface like a countertop or keypad by one individual and is then picked up by another person who touches that same surface.
The amazing thing about diseases that can do such damage to human beings is that they’re incredibly vulnerable to soap. The best Woburn office cleaning services actually use medical grade cleaning products – the same sort of thing used in hospitals and health care facilities to keep patients & staff safe – in offices, manufacturing workplaces, restaurants, retail shops, and other workplaces.
By having the office professionally cleaned regularly – 1 to 2 times a week for most Boston area businesses with small to moderate amounts foot traffic – can significantly reduce the amount of disease causing agents in the facility. This includes hard surfaces, bathrooms, and in the upholstery and carpeting.
