New Zealand’s Ministry of Health is advising us that “With continued vigilance the chance of widespread community outbreak is expected to remain low.”
As part of this vigilance, we need to keep the environments in which we live and work thoroughly clean to keep germs, bacteria and viruses at bay and ‘flatten the curve” of infection.
Cleaning regularly keeps your workplace tidy, clean and healthy but during a pandemic such as COVID-19, properly disinfecting is important in helping to eliminate pathogens. Disinfection kills up to 99.9999999 percent of microorganisms by damaging the proteins so that the outer layers of the bacteria cell rupture.
Disinfection is essential for preventing the transmission of infectious pathogens and ensuring the health and well-being of employees.
At our commercial cleaning company, our professional cleaners use hospital-grade, broad-spectrum disinfectants to help contain and prevent the spread of infectious fungi, bacteria and viruses. Using a sanitiser also lowers the number of germs on surfaces to levels that are considered safe by public health organisations.
Special Response Surface Disinfection involves thoroughly cleaning high-touch surface spots in workspaces. In retail environments, offices, childcares and supermarkets, people regularly touch handles to open doors, pick up phones and touch chairs or desks or both. They use bathroom and kitchen facilities, turning on taps and kettles, pushing buttons on microwaves, turning on lights and flushing toilets. All the while inadvertently touching their faces and interacting with others.
For those working in aged care facilities, they may expose a vulnerable segment of our society to pathogens.
We find ourselves in the midst of a time of so many uncertainties, needing to be guided by experts to keep us safe from the novel virus, COVID-19.
Something we know we can do is keep our spaces clean, disinfected and sanitised to help prevent its spread.
Let our commercial cleaning company in Auckland support you with tailored cleaning services, including office cleaning services, medical cleaning services, industrial cleaning, retail facility cleaning, childcare cleaning, aged care cleaning, primary school cleaning, secondary school cleaning, education facility cleaning services and cleaning for supermarkets.
