Coronavirus (COVID-19) cleaning guidance
The outbreak of COVID-19 means there has been slight changes to health and safety procedures in order to curb the spread. There have been recommended precautionary safety measures which all businesses should put in place and they include:
- Educating your staff on prevention
- Emphasizing frequent and proper hand washing
- Cleaning high contact points more frequently
- Providing hand sanitizer
- Working with local health authorities
There are 2 main routes by which people can spread COVID-19:
- Being in close proximity to someone else how has been infected, germs could possibly be inhaled into the lungs
- It is also possible that someone may become infected by touching a surface, object or the hand of an infected person that has been contaminated with respiratory secretions and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eye
To avoid the potential spread of COVID-19, there are certain measures you are able to partake in, including:
- Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve
- Put used tissues in the bin straight away
- Wash your hands with soap and water often, for at least 20 seconds
- Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
- Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
As the virus has a 14 day incubation period, the Government has recommended anyone with flu or cold like symptoms (including, coughing, difficulty in breathing and fever) should self isolate and ring 111. If you are exhibiting any of these symptoms, please contact NHS 111 for further advice.
Our teams are able to provide deep cleaning services as well as a range of commercial cleaning services. We are able to create a cleaning plan which suits your needs.
We are able to recommend safety features including minimum ventilation rates that help to reduce unwanted health effects as well as the guidance, equipment and requirements needed to keep the ventilation safe in areas like hospitals, nursing homes, labs and other building spaces.
As small particles are able to remain in the air for a short period of time, we want to work with you in order to increase the quality of the air flow. Whether that’s through supplying clean air, containing contaminated air and expelling it from the room or just diluting the space with cleaner air.
