Your Office Disinfection Checklist – Be Sure to Check it Twice

Your Office Disinfection Checklist – Be Sure to Check it Twice

It’s that time of year – when daily headaches are typical, and your nose is a faucet. Yep, it’s flu season. You will see signs telling you how to stay healthy and prevent the spread of germs everywhere you go, especially this year. You know the drill – wash your hands, increase your fluids, bundle up when you go outside. Just like caring for your health during flu season, your spaces require attention and action to stay germ-free. 

As temperatures drop, more bodies pack indoors, bringing their unique habits and germs with them. To care for your staff, customers, and yourself, you need a disinfection checklist that can remind you of what you know to do and make you aware of what you don’t. 

Here is our flu season safety checklist:

  1. Give instructions. Did you know the average person isn’t aware of proper handwashing protocols? Make signage available to remind your staff of when and how to wash and sanitize their hands. Thorough cleaning will lower the germ transfer to surfaces and others.
  2. Make supplies available. It is much easier to have an all-hands-on-deck mentality toward disinfection if items like disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, cleaning spray, and paper towels are available and in plain sight.
  3. Beware of the bathroom. It probably comes as no surprise to you that waste disposal – of all varieties – is one of the biggest threats to the health and safety of your staff. Your team or cleaning company should disinfect the facilities multiple times a day to keep the germs at bay.
  4. Know your limits. Most people only clean something when they can visibly see that it is dirty. But the accumulation of dust, dirt, and grime is not the only measure of active bacteria and germs. Keeping up with consistent daily cleaning and disinfection can be challenging. Don’t hesitate to enlist help from the experts.
  5. Invest in the best. More and more businesses, schools, and healthcare centers are turning to electrostatic cleaning, a process that can reach all those awkward crevices and hard-to-reach places where germs can thrive without defense. It is quick, efficient, and a safe solution for your weekly deep cleaning needs.

What is electrostatic disinfection?

When the EPA-approved, hospital-grade, atomized spray cleaning solution hits a surface or object, it wraps around unwanted contaminants, killing them and leaving a sanitized protective barrier. In addition, the process reduces the time required to disinfect by up to 50% compared to conventional methods. The best part is that electrostatic spraying requires fewer chemicals to treat a wider area, saving you exposure to harsh fumes in the name of safety.
