How Clean Is Your Office?
Like mold, bacteria and germs are everywhere. Even a “sterile” environment will have something. But, making it as clean as possible to prevent the transmission of harmful pathogens is something that all of us can do a better job of. What are some of the things you’re doing that could be bringing germs into your business? How do we prevent it?
The CDC suggests “Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.” This is something SERVPRO of West Forsyth County can help with. Our Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned program can put you on a schedule for proactively disinfecting your office.
Recently I discovered that resort hotel operators are manning the front door to stave off germs with a host of people. One is giving you hand sanitizer; another is directing you to step on a mat that is saturated with a disinfectant. Another is working on spraying your luggage with disinfectant. All of these protocols are at work to try and reduce the chances of transmission of the disease into the cleanest environment they can create. What can we learn in our own business from this? Spraying our shoes, and shopping carts or other items used frequently with disinfectant. Ensuring that we are sanitizing our hands and maybe even ensuring customers hands are sanitized before they come into our place of business.
What about those items we use in our office frequently with our hands, or even close to our face? When is the last time you disinfected your keyboard or phone? Wiping these electronic items with an electronics safe disinfectant is a good idea. Be sure to wipe your phone down when you come back in from being out and about. While you are out be sure to not lay your phone on a surface in public.
We sometimes forget about the small but “high touch” areas of our homes and businesses. These can include, the medicine cabinet, drawer pulls, handles, and light switches. If you use your hands to open, turn it on, or off, close or pull it, then it probably is a high touch item that needs to be sanitized even more frequently.
