Preparing Your Commercial Business For Cold and Flu Season
In case you haven’t noticed, the recommendations to vaccinate for the cold and flu vaccine have officially started. That’s because there have already been cases of the flu reported, and predictions call for an earlier and longer-than-anticipated season. So how can you protect your commercial business from being affected this fall and winter? One of the first and most effective lines of defense is hiring a certified commercial cleaning company like New England Cleaning Services, Inc.
What can a commercial cleaning company do to help?
To start, a cleaning company can ensure that high-touch and shared areas are properly cleaned and disinfected to minimize the spread of disease and infection. Door handles, light switches, faucet handles, soap dispensers and break room surfaces are all common areas of concern, as well as phones, keyboards, and individual workspaces.
We use advanced technologies like electrostatic disinfection to distribute disinfectant to all potential germ-infested areas. Our electrostatic mist allows for charged disinfectant particles to cling to even difficult-to-reach areas without having to physically touch the surfaces. This process makes disinfection both time-efficient and effective.
Our disinfectants are not only powerful but also environmentally-friendly. We strive to have a minimal environmental impact through our cleaning, so we are committed to offering green products like Stabilized Aqueous Ozone (SAO) to our clients. With SAO, you save gallons of water and don’t need any strong, harmful chemicals to create an all-in-one cleanser, disinfectant, and deodorizer.
Having a certified cleaning company come in to clean your business regularly means that your business will be protected consistently throughout the peak cold and flu seasons. You don’t need to worry about sick employees being responsible for cleaning, which is especially important in healthcare settings where many people have compromised immune systems.
Hiring outside professional help eliminates the need for business employees to take time away from the work they were hired to do to do any cleaning. Cleaning professionals can deliver better results because they are highly trained, knowledgeable, and work flexibly to work around business schedules and obligations. They are also compliant with all HIPAA and OSHA standards and are reliable to deliver consistent results.
In addition to commercial cleaning, it’s also important to remind your workers to get vaccinated and stay home if feeling sick. Encouraging your workers to practice good hygiene is also key.
