The past few months have been challenging and uncertain for the whole world. It wasn’t just one city, one state, or a third-world country that was affected. COVID-19 affected the world as a whole with closings, lockdowns, and quarantines, and things that most of us have never experienced.
Now, little by little, things are returning to normal, and now, businesses need to get ready for the return of employees, customers, and vendors. While we may be returning to normal, that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of COVID-19. Experts warn it may never totally go away, much like the flu.
So, we need to educate anyone and everyone what to look for and understand how COVID-19 spreads. We all need to know how to keep it from spreading, and with the cleaning and disinfecting standards explained here, we can also slow the spread of other bacteria and viruses. One of the top Cleaning services company in Southern California, Kohl Building Maintenance, has paved the way for commercial cleaning. Trust, reliability, innovation, and leadership are the core of who we are – now and always
Indications of COVID-19
Every time we cough or exhale, droplets release from our mouth, and if we have, or we’re a carrier of COVID-19, those droplets are infected fluid that falls on nearby objects and surfaces. From countertops to desks, computer keyboards, tables, and telephones.
The next person that comes along and touches any of those contaminated objects or services is picking up that infection. They then touch their eyes, mouth, or nose, and even more concerning, anyone that is within one meter of a cough or exhaling will breathe in those droplets, taking in those bacteria and germs directly in their body.
Recommended Cleaning and Disinfecting Guidelines
By following the following COVID-19 cleaning guidelines for businesses, the spread of the coronavirus is reduced, making the working environment safer. The cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing remove any contamination, although we shouldn’t assume that all contamination has been eliminated with this extra cleaning. Further steps by each employee, customer, and vendor are needed.
These guidelines should be reviewed with the staff, and the immediate implementation stressed. Management should periodically observe each employee’s cleaning process that the guidelines are being followed. Additionally, every business owner needs to be aware of the spaces occupied and surfaces touched by others, creating a reservoir for COVID-19. Areas that need specific attention for thorough cleaning are:
- Any area where customers, employees, vendors, or general public gather. This should include breakrooms, conference rooms, locker rooms, offices, and reception areas.
- Restrooms, including handwashing stations, showers, sinks, and toilets.
- Dispensaries including, emergency showers, eyewash stations, first aid, and medical stations.
Within the areas mentioned above that need specific attention with a thorough cleaning, these surfaces that are highly likely to be a COVID-19 touchpoint need frequent and thorough cleaning throughout each day.
- Desktops and work surfaces
- Door handles, doorknobs
- Dimmer switches and light switches
- Desktop, laptop computers, tablets, and peripherals
- Telephones and their equipment like head
- Chairs with a focus on arms and headrests
- Breakrooms, kitchens including cabinets, counters, chairs, faucets, microwaves, ovens, refrigerators, sinks, tables, trays, dishes, and flatware
- Restrooms including hand dryers, sinks, toilets, all surfaces
- Drink dispensers, vending machines, water fountains
- Elevators and lifts, all buttons, doors, handles
