Keeping a tidy office has always been an outward sign of a solid business. As your venture has grown over the years, so have the responsibilities. More employees, larger facilities, worldwide pandemics, and complicated procedures have added more to your plate. COVID-19 has upped the standards of cleaning at all facilities, now is not the time to cut corners. Creating a plan for a safe work environment that protects employees and customers alike from risks connected to COVID-19, including exposure and transmission.
Having a competent, professional commercial cleaning company is another layer of safety for your team. And the janitorial industry is evolving to keep up with the pressures. They want to return the sense of security for returning employees, clients, vendors and visitors.
Great door mats (and a regular schedule for cleaning them) are a great investment for your facility. But this year, business owners are stepping it up for personal hygiene. Ask the Cloute team to recommend installing touch-free restroom systems: automatic flushers, faucets, soap dispensers, paper towel dispensers and hand sanitizers. Each will reduce the amount of high touch surfaces that people may come into contact with.
Ensure that ventilation systems in your facility operate properly. Your building’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems might benefit from an increased cleaning schedule. You might also consider adding air cleaning equipment. By themselves, portable air cleaners and HVAC filters are not enough to protect people from the virus that causes COVID-19. But they will help with allergies, dust, and odors.
These days, paper lists and voicemails can be replaced by tablet-based software. Then the data gathered can be analyzed to provide deeper insights into the cleaning process and its results. Cloute offers better communication between technicians, dispatchers and customer service staff to ensure enhanced responsiveness for your business.
Working with Cloute can add efficiencies through software tools that allow online bookings, tracking of work orders, and accounting. Automating could help reduce costs, improve efficiency, speed up work, and minimize customer pain points.
Business owners today want a clear plan of what will be covered: what areas, what products, the frequency, the qualifications of the team.
As business reopens in stages throughout the year, your facility managers should have a systematic plan in place that is communicated to your team as well as the custodial staff. With the added responsibility of COVID-19 cleaning services, multiple levels of cleaning required for routine coverage are complicated. Add on to that the additional response to any known outbreaks at the center. Communication between the business and the cleaning team is key to ensure appropriate services are being delivered depending on the situation’s requirements.
