Did you know that warm environments are the perfect breeding ground for germs? Conducting regular disinfecting cleaning services to stop germs from thriving in your office is essential. If you don’t, you and your staff are at risk of becoming ill.
In this blog post, we are going to look at some of the most common germs and viruses that can be found in offices and the disinfecting cleaning services that can stop them from thriving and spreading.
Common Germs and Viruses Found in Warm Working Facilities.
One of the most common germs that thrive in warm environments is the norovirus. This virus can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea and is highly contagious. It can be spread through contact with contaminated surfaces or through the air.
The flu virus is a respiratory illness that is caused by the influenza virus and is highly contagious and can spread easily from person to person. Symptoms of the flu include fever, coughing, sore throat, runny nose, and body aches. The flu virus can also lead to serious complications, such as pneumonia, and can even be fatal.
The rhinovirus, known as the ‘common cold’ and can survive on surfaces for up to three hours and thrives within warm environments.
Other less common germs that can thrive in warm environments include staphylococcus aureus, E. coli and salmonella.
Many of these germs and viruses can survive on hard and soft surfaces for an extended period of time, making the spread easier and the possibility of thriving much greater.
Stopping the Spread.
Fortunately, there are professional disinfecting cleaning services that can remove germs and viruses from your office and working environment. These services use a variety of methods, including vacuuming, mopping, and specialist disinfecting. These services use powerful chemicals and equipment to clean and disinfect all areas of your office or facility to kill and stop the spread of viruses, helping to prevent your staff and clients from becoming ill.
A-1 Cleaning has a vast array of experience and professional bespoke disinfecting services dedicated to reducing the ability for germs to thrive within an office environment, such as:
Electrostatic spraying services – This is one of the most highly effective disinfecting services we can perform. We come in on a nightly or weekly basis with electrostatic sprayers and disinfect your facility’s high traffic areas and touchpoints. As the disinfecting liquid comes out of the spray gun it is electrostatically charged. This allows the liquid to cling to surfaces and wrap around negatively charged surfaces.
It is especially ideal for objects that cannot be cleaned on a daily basis by hand, such as pens, desk items, paper clips etc. We currently perform this at many facilities, from office buildings to public transit hubs, athletic facilities, and medical offices. It is also used in airplanes, vehicle interiors, schools, and many other places.
Night-time Cleaning – We undertake a customized disinfecting cleaning program during the night so that when your staff and clients arrive the next day they are met with a clean and safe working environment. This includes all of the regular cleaning tasks, such as vacuuming, mopping, and dusting, as well as disinfecting all surfaces.
Daytime Porter Disinfecting – In addition to night-time cleaning, this is the absolute best service you can add to combat germs and viruses. Having a visible porter who cleans the restrooms and communal area touchpoints daily is key to stopping the spread.
This service keeps the patrons of your facility safe. It also lowers liabilities and puts everyone at ease as they can see your facility management is being proactive and taking the appropriate steps to combat the spread of the virus during business hours.
One-Time Deep Clean – We also offer one-off cleaning services for businesses that need a deep clean or are moving into a new space.
Sanitization Stations – We offer sanitization stations to help you keep your facility clean and free of germs.
