We have been warned by the government that the pandemic is not over; with unpredictable outbreaks occurring and new variants like Omicron emerging we are still very much in a pandemic. On a more optimistic note, scientists have agreed that the Covid-19 pandemic will end at some point and become an epidemic. This means that the likelihood of the virus being eliminated completely is very slim, but as more people are fully vaccinated, infections will arise at a consistently lower level. It is likely that Covid infections will become seasonal, much like flu.
With the emergence of new variants, it seems that each one is more infectious than the one before. This can put a strain on companies whose cleaning regimes are already stretched, as disinfection of workplaces need to be carried out with every new positive case.
But employee and customer safety must come first, and the advantages of disinfecting and cleaning reach beyond eliminating any potential Covid infection.
With so many regulations surrounding Coronavirus, routine and thorough cleaning by a professional cleaning contractor presents an opportunity to prove compliance; if ever there are any issues raised there will be a record of cleaning practices.
Customers and clients as well as employees need to feel safe and secure in their surroundings. It is important to ensure that every person entering your premises is aware of the cleaning and disinfection routine, giving them the peace of mind and confidence that every effort has been made to protect their health and safety.
Employee satisfaction can impact heavily on productivity. Whichever sector you’re in, employees focus more when they’re confident about the safety of their workplace. It is an employer’s duty of care to ensure the wellbeing of all staff, and thorough disinfection and cleaning can play a major role in that.
Regular and professional disinfection can help lessen the risk of spread of Covid-19, providing employees are following protocols set out to them. A professional cleaning contractor can undertake a more ‘advanced’ type of cleaning where professional grade equipment and products are used. They are trained to clean the often overlooked or hard to clean areas, ensuring every part of your building is sanitised and safe.
If a Coronavirus Covid-19 case is confirmed, then decontamination and sanitisation is of the utmost importance to ensure safety of others. Brightr have experienced teams that can provide deep cleaning services for your offices, warehouses, schools, and surgeries.
