Most people spend the bulk of their waking hours at work. So, whether it’s new standards that have been put in place due to the pandemic or simply as a commitment to provide a safe work environment, commercial disinfectant treatment is an essential component of commercial cleaning. Although many commercial businesses use a professional cleaning service, the actual cleaning that is done is often the minimum requirement, such as vacuuming, dusting, and emptying the trash. Unfortunately, even with routine cleaning, allergens, pathogens, and germs remain in the upholstery, carpets, and blinds. Here are just a few of the reasons why it’s important to have commercial disinfection treatments.
Commercial environments often have many shared surfaces, which provide a perfect breeding ground for the spread of bacteria and germs. From door handles and elevator buttons to equipment, such as printers and keyboards, average workspaces are about 100 times less hygienic than a kitchen counter. Along with routine cleaning, a professional commercial disinfectant treatment will significantly help reduce the spread of germs on shared surfaces. The best news is that fewer germs in the workplace mean your employees will be healthier, take fewer sick days, and be more productive.
Reduce the Spread of Coronavirus
The current pandemic has influenced commercial businesses to upgrade their cleaning and to regularly sanitize and disinfect the work environment. Whether your commercial building is used for office space or as a medical setting, commercial facilities are expected to develop and enforce cleaning and disinfecting strategies that are specific to your business. There are a number of different solutions to help slow or prevent the spread of the coronavirus, including fogging and/or electrostatic disinfection. These types of commercial disinfectant treatments remove almost 100 percent of microorganisms, making them highly effective at disinfecting the pathogens associated with coronavirus. Not only will the disinfection process meet local requirements, but it will also help employees to know that their health and safety is the top priority.
Provides a Positive, Professional Appearance
It is critical that you provide a safe environment for customers and clients coming into your business. Exposure to germs and pathogens increases when there are more individuals introduced into an environment, which makes commercial disinfectant treatments a key element for keeping everyone safe and healthy. When customers and clients recognize the cleaning and disinfecting protocols used in your business, they will be more comfortable and confident when they are spending time at your business. This type of dedication and attention to detail may help to boost your reputation as your customers spread the word about how responsible your company is. Keep in mind that although disinfecting treatments are essential, it is also important to incorporate routine cleaning protocols as well, especially in businesses that have a lot of customer/client traffic.
Stepping up the cleaning and disinfecting practices for your business can help reduce the spread of infectious disease, such as COVID-19. The coronavirus may be spread by touching contaminated surfaces, such as elevator buttons, chairs, desks, phones, and counters. Experts say that cleaning and professional commercial disinfectant treatment is the best practice for preventing the spread of viruses, such as coronavirus as well as other respiratory illnesses that are commonly spread in community settings.
