Implementing Medical Cleaning Practices Into Other Residential & Commercial Cleaning Situations

04 Oct 2020 8:17 AM | William Wargin

  In recent months we have all been affected by the worldwide pandemic. This has forced us to look at how we do otherwise normal things in our day to day lives. From wearing masks to protect too carrying around hand sanitizers, we have all had to make a conscious effort to protect ourselves and others from this devastating virus. 

  We have always cleaned our homes and offices. But now we are looking at what we are cleaning with and for most people doing it more often. Using appropriate disinfecting cleaners is more important than ever. Thinking about the surfaces that are touched and weather you have transferred the virus to your home is in the front of your thoughts. Disinfecting the high touch surfaces in my home has become almost a daily routine. 

  Either when you are cleaning at home or at the office change is a must. At least in the foreseeable future. Medical cleaners that you would rarely see outside of a Hospital or Doctors office are making there way into the mainstream marketplace. Disinfecting surfaces such as tables, door handles and menus after each patron is a must. A policy of not passing the same pen from customer to customer without being disinfected should be implemented. These are just some examples of small things that could make a big difference. 

 Training in the prevention of cross contamination should be given at all workplaces. This not only protects the patrons of the establishment but the employees. Keeping a healthy workforce and community is everyone’s responsibility. A little can go a long way.
