How To Intensify Cleaning Efforts at Work During a Pandemic

Living in a COVID-19 world has changed daily life forever. Even after the coronavirus pandemic ends, it's likely that people will never view cleanliness the same way again. If you're running a business, then you know this first-hand. You've had to completely reassess and amplify your cleaning protocol, but there's still more you can do. Here are six tips to intensify your workplace cleaning efforts during a global pandemic.

Keep Spaces Clear

This is one point in time when less is definitely more. If you've been tempted to minimize, or have a more streamlined appearance at the office, now's the time to do it. Uncluttered spaces make it extremely easy for anyone to wipe down an entire room in minutes. If you have a waiting room, get rid of all magazines, pamphlets, remote controls or anything that's touched by a lot of people. Remember, the more things you have scattered about, the more things you'll have to disinfect. Adopting a simpler layout will make it much easier to keep spotless.

Use Essential Oil

There's no doubt you've resorted to using heavy chemicals for sterilization. To switch things up, try supplementing your cleaning routine with fragrant Young Living Essential Oils. Ingredients used in oils, such as lavender, have antimicrobial properties. Lemon oil is extremely effective as a grease cutter and peppermint oil makes a great antibacterial spray. Both lavender and peppermint also repel insects and other pests, while at the same time produce a calming, or invigorating, aroma for both your customers and staff to enjoy.

Add Sanitizing Stations

You can help your building remain even cleaner by making hand sanitizer readily available at the point of entry. Having a touch-free sanitizing station at the entrance of a company keeps everyone's hands germ-free and is well worth the small investment. If your business uses carts or shopping baskets, make spray cleaners, paper towels and a trash receptacle handy. Anything you can add at your front door, including face masks, will ensure added cleanliness to the interior of the building.

Check Your Air System

You can't see them, but the air you breathe is filled with molecules. Keeping a building clean starts at the molecular level, so while disinfecting fixtures, don't ignore the air around you. This can be easily accomplished by installing HEPA filters in your air system. HEPA, or high-effective particulate air filters, can block the corona and other viruses. These filters should be changed more frequently than normal during a pandemic. 

Increase Professional Services

Many businesses leave the housekeeping up to professional cleaners which can save you time. Cleaners use their own equipment and usually arrive after hours. In addition to their evening hours, you many want to increase their presence. For example, if they clean weekly, bump it up to several times a week. If they work every night, you can inquire about a midday spruce-up during the week. A cleaning crew's presence, in addition to your own efforts, will give you and your clients peace of mind.

Alternate Rooms

By now, you've seen how offices and restaurants are partitioning off reception areas and work stations with plexiglass. Along those same lines, you can extend this idea throughout an entire office. Block off certain rooms and sections that are rarely used, especially if your customer capacity has been reduced. You can even opt to alternate spaces, such as exam rooms in a medical office, by doing 72-hour rotations between uses. This will cut down immensely on the area that needs to be sterilized in a day, and will prevent any contamination.

Adapt to Change

This time in history is unlike anything most people have ever experienced, but human beings are extremely adaptable to change. The last few months have been a whirlwind of transformations especially in the workplace. These modifications to everyday life, and the extra effort put into the way businesses and public places are kept clean, is just one important part of coexisting during a pandemic.
