Though COVID-19 continues to slam countries around the globe, in the United States vaccines have allowed us to safely resume many of our favorite public pastimes and work life. Now more than ever, keeping your office environment safe is extremely important for the health of your clients and for your employees.
Whether you’re eagerly anticipating reunions with favorite coworkers or worried that cubicle life post-COVID-19 may not be entirely safe, here are some of the considerations that you should have when handling your office environment during the pandemic.
Hard Surfaces & High-Touch Areas
Highly trafficked areas like entrances, countertops, meeting rooms, and any other shared space can become highly dangerous areas for your staff and clients. It is essential that these areas are addressed on a regular basis to reduce the spread of COVID-19. It is best to bring in a professional team of cleaning specialists to disinfect and clean these areas, but it is also essential to clean them in between professional cleanings as well. To ensure that your office remains safe and clean, you should have your staff address the following:
- Wipe down doorknobs and doors including the entrance doors and any doors that may be used throughout the day.
- Ensure kitchen countertops and appliances are wiped down after each use.
- Desks, tables, and chairs in conference rooms should be wiped down after they are used.
- Elevator doors and buttons should be routinely wiped down with disinfectant.
As a general rule of thumb, if you’re not sure whether or not something should be wiped down, it is best to simply do it. These cleaning tasks can easily be worked into the daily routine of your employees to ensure that everyone who interacts with your business stays safe. Additionally, handling these items on a regular basis will ensure the work done by professional cleaners is maintained in between cleanings.
