COVID-19 has significantly changed how people view and clean their workspace. More and more business owners and managers are shifting toward professional cleaning as mere sprays, wipe-downs and mopping are not enough to prevent the spread of the virus.
The Dynamics of Cleanliness Standards
People are becoming much more cognizant of workspace cleanliness, as they fear contracting coronavirus and spreading it to co-workers, clients, or loved ones. As a result, more business owners, managers, and employees are ramping up the frequency of office cleanings as well as the quality of those cleanings.
Part of the challenge of dealing with the threat of COVID-19 is altering cleanliness standards as the virus changes. Simply spraying cubicles and surfaces with a cleaning spray and wiping the area with a paper towel will not suffice.
Though it costs a bit more to have an office professionally cleaned, it is worth every penny. The money spent on professional office cleaning is ultimately recuperated in the form of fewer employee sick days and a higher employee retention rate.
Shared Spaces Viewed in a Different Light
While the average office worker feels safe in his or her cubicle, most are hyper-aware of the threat of sharing common areas with co-workers, clients, and other office visitors. Employees are now aware of the increased likelihood of the virus spreading in shared spaces such as office kitchens, bathrooms, meeting rooms, and other areas where people congregate. Some office workers are even thinking twice before touching the buttons on copiers, printers, and other office machines.
The solution to the overarching fear of spending time in shared office spaces is to change the approach to cleaning and disinfecting. Though it is unnecessary to sterilize the entirety of the office every single day, more and more office managers are beginning to understand the importance of spending on a thorough office cleaning at least once per week. In particular, there is a growing emphasis on tapping into the power of professional cleanings.
A Focus on Comprehensive Cleaning
It wasn’t long ago when some business owners assumed sweeping, mopping, and spraying their office space was sufficient. However, with coronavirus is spreading, there has been a seismic shift toward truly comprehensive deep office cleaning performed by professionals with years of experience like Majik Cleaning Services.
A comprehensive cleaning requires the use of a disinfectant in all areas of the office. This means disinfecting the bathroom alone will no longer suffice. Rather, the entirety of the office including the reception area, break room, kitchen, and individual cubicles are necessary to halt the spread of COVID-19.
Employee Expectations are Higher Than Ever
Above all, there is a heightened expectation for employees and business owners to maintain a clean working space. Employees now expect employers to implement a thorough office cleaning at least once per week. Furthermore, employees expect one another to wash their hands at a higher frequency, social distance when necessary, and maintain personal hygiene in an attempt to benefit the greater good.
