Getting Your Office Ready for Flu Season

Getting Your Office Ready for Flu SeasonFlu season is here once again! And like other business, you want to get your office ready. Of course, being ready means keeping your team healthy and productive throughout the season. As the season progresses, it is hard to avoid team members arriving at the office sneezing, sniffing, coughing, and more. And with those conditions, the number of ill employees can double or triple, reducing productivity and costing loss revenue. By being proactive and taking action now, you can keep your office humming along productively through flu season and all year long.

A good start is installing hand sanitizers if you don’t already have them and encouraging your team members to get their flu shots early. What you may not have thought about is how hiring a professional cleaning service can rid your office of germs on a regular basis throughout the year before anyone falls ill.

Preparing a Prevention Plan

Starting now means you can plan ahead and protect your team members from the flu. The ideal place to begin is with “high touch areas” – desks, phones, keyboards, door knobs, doors, bathrooms, sinks, counter and surfaces in break rooms. Germs can live on surfaces for up to 48 hours infecting those who come in contact with the surface. Standard cleaning products can’t kill the worst of germs and store bought disinfectants only rid your office of the mildest bacteria.  A professional commercial cleaning team will see that these areas are sanitized regularly with premium disinfectants to prevent the spread of the flu and other germs and bacteria in your office.

Performing Routine Cleaning

On top of developing a prevention plan and sanitizing touch points with disinfectants, a commercial cleaning service will clean your office according to your specifications. A clean office is important to the health and wellness of your team and a professional service will deliver the highest quality cleaning. With a professional service, you choose the time that is best for you, day or night, and a licensed, bonded, insured cleaning staff will clean your offices thoroughly – removing trash, dusting, and vacuuming to get rid of dirt, grim, dust, allergens, and infectious germs. Plus, a professional cleaning service can steam your carpet or upholstery, clean ceramic tile and grout, strip and wax your vinyl floors, pressure clean exteriors, clean windows, and other needed services.  

Ensuring Safe and Effective Use of Cleaning and Disinfectants

A professional cleaning service will see that all cleaning and disinfectants are handled safely and effectively. These products, if not handled appropriately, can be dangerous. Professionals know how to use the products to kill germs, bacteria, and viruses without causing damage to property or danger to staff members. In addition, professional cleaning services have all the needed equipment to get the job right every time.
