Commercial Cleaning and Disinfection Will Help Your Business Re-Open Successfully
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic closed businesses on an unprecedented scale. Many business owners are still closed and wondering how to re-open. Others are already looking forward to their reopening day and looking for the best solutions to reopen successfully while keeping their business free of the coronavirus.
Deep Cleaning Before Reopening
Many government agencies have instructed business owners to do a deep cleaning which involves a lot of cleaning and disinfecting. A deep cleaning includes having the appropriate gear to include PPE and face masks as well as virucides and other chemicals that are capable of killing germs, bacteria, and airborne illnesses.
For Everyone’s Protection
Governments are mandating that businesses take proper measures before reopening to protect employees from virus infection and preventing its spread. Common businesses that have already reopened and require a deep clean treatment include:
Medical and dental offices
Wait 24 Hours Before Cleaning
Cleaning requirements are different depending on the cleaning requirements for your particular type of business. If you have a busy business like a supermarket, it may not be possible to keep it closed for an entire day. In this case, you should do deep cleaning in sections or during non-peak hours.
For other types of businesses like office buildings, retail shops, churches, or car dealerships, these businesses can remain closed for a day. During this time, the business should be well-ventilated and the air must properly circulate and move out of the rooms and spaces. This step is important before anyone goes inside to do a deep cleaning.
Why Wait 24 Hours?
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends waiting at least 24 hours for suspected and confirmed areas that have coronavirus. Although your business may not have been exposed to any virus, waiting 24 hours is a good precaution to ensure that your business is safe to reopen. After 24 hours, your cleaning service can come in wearing the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) to do a deep cleaning.
Clean Before Disinfection
Before disinfection, make sure to do a general cleaning with an all-purpose cleaner. Any surfaces that appear visibly dirty should be cleaned to remove any soil or dirt. Once all surfaces are cleaned, you can then proceed to disinfect the workspace. When disinfecting, you achieve maximum results when you remove all dust dirt and grime before applying any disinfectant.
Deep Cleaning and Disinfection
When doing a deep cleaning, this means that everything is going to get clean. This type of cleaning goes beyond just your ordinary sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, and throwing out trash. Some common areas or items in an office environment that you should focus on cleaning and disinfecting are:
All entrances, walkways, and exits especially doorknobs and door handles
All light switches and plate covers
Phone receivers, remote controls, cash registers
All handles on doors, rails, stairwells, escalators, cabinets, sinks, restrooms
Refrigerator both inside and outside especially if food was left in it for a long time
Chairs, tables, desks, from the lobby entrance to the meeting/conference room
