Coronavirus is on everyone’s mind and it has been an eye opener on how infection can spread very quickly. Not only should we get in the habit of practicing infectious control cleaning practices now, but it should be continued to protect employees and visitors from other infectious diseases from colds to flus and other such viruses. Today, we at Baker Sandoval Cleaning would like share how you can maintain a clean and infectious controlled environment.

Insist Sick Employees Stay Home

Keeping infected workers out of the workplace will significantly reduce the number of illnesses in both your workplace and your clients’ offices, though is not an actually cleaning method, it helps drastically. About 39% of employees go to work sick as suggested by research. To ensure people will not feel like they are expected to come into work, managers and other business leaders should lead by example with this one.

Clean & Disinfect Surfaces Daily

Only if done correctly, one the most effective infection control cleaning methods is to disinfect commonly handled surfaces. With an all-purpose cleaner first, clean the surfaces of keyboards, desktops, phone receivers, doorknobs, counters, and other high-touched areas and follow up with a disinfectant spray and wipe them down. To be fully effective, disinfectant should ideally be left on a surface for 30-60 seconds. Keep in mind that all-purpose cleaner doesn’t disinfect, so if that’s all you use, you are leaving most of the germs behind.

Wash Hands & Wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

When you’re cleaning offices during cold and flu season, as well as during the pandemic, use gloves and masks when you’re cleaning offices. It’s a good idea to swap out PPE every 30 minutes if the cleaning job takes a long time. Cleaners should wash their hands for 15-20 seconds with warm water and antibacterial soap when finished with PPE, and after touching potentially contaminated surfaces. Making it another effective infection control cleaning method, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), among other benefits, handwashing reduces respiratory illnesses by 16-21% in the general population.

Daily Disposal of Trash & Washing Trash Containers

In wastebaskets, germs continue to collect. Have the cleaning duties include emptying all wastebaskets daily and wash them down with disinfectant spray, inside and out. Before tending to the next task, be sure to have them wash their hands when completed.

Clean Window Ledges, Dust Vents & Other Neglected Areas

Being still capable of transmitting illnesses, many dust particles are comprised of contaminated dead skin cells. Dust the office thoroughly, remembering to tend to shelves, ledges, countertops, heating and cooling vents, and other areas where dust gathers to reduce the risk of infection. Giving them a healthy space, and giving you a little extra revenue, you can even add these to a “cold and flu season” add-on for clients.

When you were thinking about what 2020 would look like there is no way that you would have predicted the current pandemic that we are in. No one is having the year that they were planning on. Everyone is having to make significant adjustments to their lives right now. One group that has been deeply affected is churches. Today Baker Sandoval Cleaning has some tips for you on what to do with your church during this time.

Churches Practicing Social Distancing

Right now, government officials have mandated that we practice safe social distancing in order to stop the spread of coronavirus. Social distancing requires us to stay within six feet of other individuals and not to gather in groups larger than 10 people. This has required churches to shut down their traditional worship services and find other alternatives to keep their members spiritually fed. Church leaders across the country are rapidly trying to accommodate these changes. One way that many churches are staying in touch with their faith community is by providing online or televised church services. Every church will have different capabilities for providing remote worship services to their members. If you have not ever done this before you can call another church and ask them for advice. You may find that some of your church members can help with this process. In addition to televised church services, you can encourage your members to reach out to one another. Everyone is feeling out of sorts with all of the chaos in the world. A phone call, text, or private message on social media can make a huge difference for someone. You can also stop by and drop off a surprise on their porch. Taking time to brighten someone’s day is worth all of the effort it takes. This will help your congregation stay connected during this anxiety ridden experience. If your church hosts Bible studies or other small groups you cannot host those in person during this time. You can find alternative ways to keep these groups going. Each group will need to choose an option that works best for them. They can meet on Zoom phone calls, Facetime, group texts, Voxer, Marco Polo, and more. Keeping these groups going will help your members feeling hope and connection. As a church leader you will want to make sure that you reach out to the different groups that you are in charge of. See what plans they have for connecting with their groups at this time. Give them some of the tips listed above. Ask them to get back to you with any concerns that you can help address. If any members are struggling you will want to reach out to them personally.

There are lots of families that have parents that both have to work, especially first responders and those that work for essential businesses during this time. There are other families that have joint custody of a child that needs to have some child care. Child care is a necessity for most people and taking your child to be cared for can be a scary thing. You want your child to have the best care and be loved and safe. Most parents will take time to look for the best place to take their child and they usually have a list of things that are important to them. The day care system can be a great benefit for people and if you are running one it is important to ensure that families will choose you. The work that goes into keeping a day care running and clean can be overwhelming but you want to make sure that you use the right services. Baker Sandoval Cleaning outlines what it takes to keep a daycare clean.

Keep Daycare Sanitary to Prevent Illness Spreading

One of the biggest issues that most daycare centers have is the amount of germs that exist in the facility. The issue is that the kids that are coming and going on a regular basis are coming from many different homes. They can have been exposed to some illness that they are carrying and not showing signs yet. There are other kids that come and they have a runny nose or a cough. The problem is that many parents cannot take time off to stay home when your child is a little sick. The issue then becomes the rest of the facility is at risk of getting sick. This means the other kids but also means the staff as well. This can be a problem that should be dealt with by a professional cleaning company. We can come and treat all the surfaces to sanitize them.

Child Care Center Needs to Make a Good Impression

The other thing that you need to consider is that the facility needs to be kept clean for the sake of a good impression. The building that is housing a business that is caring for young kids needs to be clean. This is where some potential parents will come look to make sure that they want to leave their kids to be watched. It is best to have the daycare cleaned by a professional to make sure that you make a good impression. This will help to bring in more revenue and more potential customers to your business.

Clean Workplace for Healthy Employees

You also want to make sure that your employees have a place that they want to go and feel safe and comfortable. The place that they come to work should feel like the employer cares. The best thing you can do is to have the business cleaned. This will ensure that your employees have a clean breakroom where they can go to relax and eat their meals. It also will make sure that they have a clean and sanitary bathroom as well which is necessary since they have to be able to go when the kids are being tended to.
