When everybody gets back to work, we will find ourselves deliberating differently about the surfaces and equipment around us, getting a disinfecting cloth where we had would never offer a second thought before.
Although it is understandable to face a little uneasiness as we return to the offices, it is valuable and achievable to keep our offices healthy.
Whether engaging in CDC-recommended disinfection for common surfaces, maintenance cleaning, office cleaning exercise come down to a similar prominent tenet: appropriate equipment, a group, and a solid strategy.
This article will guide you through collecting the appropriate tools for your daily routine, introduce a valuable strategy, and implement it in your office with the aid of your team.
The appropriate office cleaning procedure
Although our reaction to covid-19 has been to default disinfect everything, the CDC suggests cleaning instead of disinfecting in daily situations. So what is the difference? Simply:
Cleaning is for the purpose of wellness and health: washing the common surfaces by using a simple water-and-soap solution and a green cleaner can make them secure and safe by removing dirt and dust. This also physically eliminates germs through picking them up (either in a cloth or paper towel) to eliminate them securely.
On the other hand, disinfection kills germs through the use of chemicals. The CDC advises disinfection only when a person has been visiting or working in the office while carrying a contagious disease; it does not have to happen for routine cleaning.
Gather the appropriate cleaning equipment
According to the purpose of cleaning (deep cleaning, disinfection, or simple cleaning), you will require a few tools at hand:
- Green cleaning spray
- Trash bags
- Disinfection spray, wipes, appropriately-diluted bleach solution
- Nitrile gloves
- For disinfection: an appropriately-rated protective mask and respirator mask
Build an office health and safety strategy
- Create a note of the traffic through particular office areas and the methods in which the areas are used- or not. During the mental inventory course, you might even realize ways to maximize and improve your office area usage as a side-advantage to your cleaning strategy development.
- Look through the office one space at a time, and make a note of the high-touch spaces in each.
