Germs and bacteria are always around and we can’t let them catch us with our guard down. It’s Summer time and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the North American flu season is over, but that doesn’t mean your office cleaning service should cut down on the tasks that kill and decrease the spread of office germs. It happens every year. The bulletins come out and everyone is talking about the flu and other illness causing germs. And then all of a sudden this chatter disappears in the off season and it’s “out of sight, out of mind”. This is also the case for many of the traditional office cleaning services.
So, the question is, “How do you make sure your office cleaning service provides you a healthy office year around?”
EVALUATE YOUR CURRENT CLEANING SERVICE VENDOR
- Does your office cleaning service use a hospital grade disinfectant to disinfect “touch surfaces” each day?
- Does your cleaning service utilize microfiber rags that are color-coded to prevent cross-contamination (spread germs through cleaning rags)?
- Does your cleaning service provide consistent training to new employees and ongoing training to veteran employees?
