Let's Keep Each Other Safe: How to Get Professional Cleaning for COVID-19
Whether you're trying to re-open a business or keep your home extremely clean for at-risk residents, professional cleaning can help relieve your COVID worries.
There has never been a better time to re-evaluate your cleaning policies and procedures. Whether it's an office, residential building, or your home, cleanliness is now the highest priority.
If you want true peace of mind about potential exposure to COVID 19, you should find a professional cleaning service.
Here's how to do it!
Find a Trusted Professional Cleaning Service
Professional cleaners are in high demand because of the pandemic. If you are going to trust a professional cleaning service, you need to be sure they are qualified for the job.
Look for a service that has experience cleaning spaces like the one you want to clean. A company specializing in individual homes may not be the right choice for your office building or vice versa.
Read reviews for the cleaning service before hiring them. If other people have had a good experience, chances are you will too.
The professional cleaning service has their procedures with regard to PPE and other precautions. Most services now have clear guidelines on protection for their safety and the sanitation of the space.
A one-time cleaning is not going to be enough. Talk with the cleaning service about setting up a regular cleaning schedule weekly or bi-weekly.
A professional cleaning service will make a big difference in the safety of your home or workplace. But it doesn't mean that you can be complacent about other sanitation measures.
In between cleanings, you should clean surfaces, including door handles or elevator buttons. Any surface that people could potentially come in contact with should be disinfected.
Promote handwashing in bathrooms and kitchens. You can use sticky notes, posters, or any other signage that might be helpful to remind people to wash their hands.
Facial coverings should be worn in offices and shared spaces of larger residential buildings (apartments, condos, assisted living facilities).
Keep sanitizing agents available in areas where handwashing may not be convenient.
Limit Exposure Opportunities
If you are working in an office building, consider having some or all employees work remotely if possible. Try to host meetings virtually instead of in-person.
If you must hold a meeting in-person, inform every participant of the precautions, and collect contact information in case someone does get sick.
You can limit your exposure at home by reducing the number of people inside and encouraging guests to wear masks. You can also offer to host outdoor gatherings to reduce the likelihood of the virus spreading.
Be Clean, Be Healthy, Be Safe
These are uncertain times we are living in. But if you can promote a clean, safe space, it will ease your anxiety.
Find a professional cleaning service you can trust, and be diligent about cleaning regularly. Take precautions to prevent the spread of the virus by protecting yourself and your community at all times.
