Sickness and illness can run rife through an office. Aircon, enclosed spaces, and uncleanliness all play a part in bacteria being spread through a workforce. 

Especially since the Coronavirus pandemic, commercial office cleaning should be a priority.

Keeping your office clean daily will not fully eradicate sickness or bacteria, but it will help significantly reduce the percentage of sick employees.

Carter and Faraday Associates are a family-run independent commercial cleaning company offering an extensive range of quality commercial cleaning & support services across the South of England including Sussex, Surrey, Kent, and South London.

Here are some tips on how to clean the office to prevent sickness.

Clean All Surfaces With Antibacterial Spray/Wipes

Making sure to clean all surfaces with antibacterial spray or disinfecting wipes daily is vital in removing harmful bacteria. 

Did you know? The cold virus can live on hard surfaces for 24 hours!

This is where a professional office cleaning company, like us, can come in handy. 

We can come to your office in Lancing, Southwick, Portslade, or Southwater, at the end of each day and make sure all surfaces such as door handles, fridge doors, light switches, kitchen appliances, and more are cleaned thoroughly.

We can also discuss with you booking a monthly deep clean, to make sure all the hard-to-reach areas are also cleaned regularly.

This means you don’t have to worry about asking your employees to spend time, either within work hours or outside of work hours, cleaning the office.

We also provide commercial cleaning services to businesses in Preston Park, Hailsham, Peacehaven, Hassocks, and Steyning.

Employee Personal Hygiene

Companies need to make sure all employees know how to stop the spread of colds and viruses, such as COVID-19.

You probably remember when the government brought out ‘Hands, Face, Space’ during the coronavirus pandemic. It’s still very relevant to prevent any kind of cold/virus from spreading.

Hands: Make sure you wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use a hand sanitiser.

Face: Wearing a face covering helps to prevent the spread of any virus.

Space: Be aware of the space around you, and make room between yourself and others. Especially if you’re surrounded by people with health issues or the elderly.

We recommend having an antibacterial gel, some wipes, and tissues on each desk, so employees can do their part in stopping the spread of bacteria. 

Ventilate The Office

Keeping a steady flow of fresh air throughout the office is vital in removing air particles that may contain viruses.

Ventilation in the office and at home has proven benefits, such as better sleep and fewer sick days.
