Office Disinfection: Cold and Flu Season
Please note that all of these resources will all be available to you when you decide to partner with Swift for your daily office cleaning service.
Cold and flu season presents a significant challenge to employers. Not only is the UK susceptible to both infections, but the office can also be a breeding ground for bacteria.
This provides a significant risk to staff wellbeing and productivity.
Swift Office Cleaning Services can include these best practices when cleaning offices during cold and flu season:
Encourage the use of handwash and sanitiser
After the couple of years we have had, few people should need extra encouragement to regularly use hand wash and sanitiser.
However, as memories of COVID fade (if they ever do), subtle reminders around the workplace to use hand sanitiser and a steady supply around the building should help.
Checking sanitiser levels, ensuring the sanitisers themselves are clean, and providing everything staff need to keep hands clean is key.
Regular deep cleaning
We tend to recommend a schedule of deep cleaning on a weekly or fortnightly basis depending on the office in question.
A deep clean includes thorough cleaning of kitchens, bathrooms, cupboards, skirting boards, and window sills – anywhere viruses or bacteria can grow. We have specialist subcontractors who can help with specialist floor/carpet cleans
Daily cleaning of washrooms, kitchens, and rest areas
The daily cleaning of washrooms, kitchens, and rest areas is standard. Deep cleaning floors and basins, kitchen cupboards can be part of the deep clean and be included during cold and flu season.
As you can imagine, anywhere that sees a lot of foot traffic and high use will pose an infection risk.
Daily cleaning can help keep this risk to a minimum while remaining practical and sustainable.
Onsite cleaner, janitor or scheduled daily visits
We can also recommend keeping a cleaner on site throughout the working day or visiting during or after a lunch period.
This ensures bathrooms, kitchens and high traffic areas are kept clean and hygienic and keep hand sanitiser as well as soap and paper towel levels topped up.
This won’t always be possible, or necessary, depending on your business, but it’s something we can advise you on when you call.
More stock of cleaning products
We balance the stocking of products against your requirements and storage space.
However, during cold or flu season, we tend to increase our stock of antibacterial cleaners, and other supplies.
That way, they are always on hand when we need them and can be quickly and easily topped up or replenished with minimal delay.
