After the pandemic and the fear of COVID-19 spreading, many companies have made an effort to allocate more resources to the cleaning and disinfecting of their offices and commercial premises.
However, the cleanliness of workspaces has always been of vital importance for those who care about the well-being of their workers. Whether in offices, stores, industrial warehouses or other types of commercial premises, dirt, dust and all kinds of germs and bacteria accumulate that must be eliminated correctly.
We must take into account that our workspace is a place where we spend a large part of our time, therefore if there is no hygiene and a healthy environment in said space, this can have serious consequences on our health such as allergies, infections or respiratory problems.
If you are concerned about the disinfection of your office or your commercial premises, this post will help you find the necessary keys to achieve a healthy and clean space to work without any worries.
Points that you should consider when disinfecting an office or commercial premises
If you’ve made it this far, it’s surely because you’re concerned about working in a clean and healthy space. Sometimes, perhaps due to routine and work schedules, we limit ourselves to carrying out the same cleaning routines every certain period of time without delving into it properly.
If there is something you should know, it is that it’s not enough to clean the windows, remove the dust and scrub the floor. Even if your office or business premises are clean to the naked eye, bacteria can still be there without you being able to see them. Therefore, from time to time it is advisable to carry out deeper disinfection tasks.
Here are some tips that can help you accomplish this difficult task:
If you really want to achieve total disinfection, you must know which products to use and when to do it. Bleach is one of the most common cleaning products and one that can provide us with the greatest disinfecting action. It is also easy to get in any supermarket and its cost is not too high. However, there are other products such as cleaning alcohol that also offer great results in terms of disinfection.
1- Use the right materials
Today, it is common to find different specific disinfectant products for each area such as floors, surfaces, textiles, bathrooms, etc.
2- Caution with chemicals
Here it is important that you pay attention. First you should know that by mixing more cleaning products you will not get a better disinfection, but also, you have to take into account that not all products can be mixed. Some disinfectants contain chemical substances that when combined with other products can generate toxic reactions.
It is important that when buying any product to disinfect your office, you read the label carefully to find out what substances it contains and together with what products you can or cannot use it.
Another action that can be of great help when disinfecting any workspace is to ensure that there is good ventilation. It is advisable to open windows and doors for at least one hour a day. In this way we let the air renew and clean itself naturally.
4- Focus frequently used surfaces
At this point, we are talking about the bathroom, the kitchen, or any surface where contact is very close and recurring. For example, it is important to make time to disinfect the toilet or WC, as well as the counter or table where we take breaks to eat. Another element where we must take care of the disinfection tasks in an office, or any type of commercial premises are the tables, counters or other types of surfaces with which there is constant contact during the working day.
As you can see, disinfecting an office or commercial premises is not a complicated task, but it does take time and it is important to do it carefully and thoroughly. If you think that these tips are not enough or that you do not have enough time to dedicate to disinfecting your office, you can choose to hire a professional cleaning company.
