Keeping Offices Clean

Keeping Office Clean and Safe

This year has been like no other. With the pandemic upon us, the world came to a standstill. Everything from offices to schools was forced to shut down in the wake of the pandemic.

The goal was to contain the spread of the virus which had become rampant.

And was has been the leading cause of the spread? The microbial transmission from surfaces, human contact etc. People come in contact with doors, handles, or any surface which was previously touched by someone who had contracted the virus and the germs are left behind..

This has become a point of serious concern for many people, especially those who work in offices. Companies have realized the need for proper hygiene protocols to be implemented, which employees can rely on for a safe environment.

Why do we need antimicrobial products?

As mentioned earlier, the spread of the disease has become problematic for many of us. The need for a standard hygiene protocol is imperative to ensure a safe working environment for everyone.

Antimicrobials are various substances that inhibit the spread of microorganisms on surfaces that would otherwise be harmful, such as viruses, bacteria, or fungi. They are needed to protect inanimate surfaces such as doors, handles, desks, or any other place prone to human contact. Even the cooling towers which maintain heating, cooling, or ventilation are quite susceptible to microbial accumulation. If attention is not paid, it can contaminate the air and worsen the overall environment.

Apart from practicing hand hygiene, it is also essential to regulate a cleaning schedule which ensures that the office premises is kept free from germs. Investing in the right quality products protects not only these inanimate surfaces but also protects employees and staff from illness.

A complete hygiene program is a must. So, which antimicrobial products are necessary?

ADHESIVE COVERS

SafeHandles Tape

One of the most significant concerns when it comes to cleanliness is touching doors or surfaces which are under heavy use. A smart solution to this is to use Adhesive Covers which mask the entire handle. They are easy to apply and remove as they can be peeled and stuck.

SafeHandles ADA Handle Covers are the perfect product available in various shapes to especially accommodate the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) compliant door handles. These are clear, translucent handle covers which hold their form for extended periods of time.

  • Easy to remove
  • Convenient to place

The printed covers not only provide the satisfaction of a clean workplace, but also communicate their presence to employees and patrons. You won’t have to worry about touching those high touch surfaces that can become filthy even with the most regimented cleaning protocols, and that naturally improves work ethic.

DISINFECTANT

When it comes to inanimate surfaces that cannot be covered, such as desks, chairs, and doors, it becomes imperative to invest in an effective disinfectant. Many disinfectants are chemical agents that are specially designed to kill or inactivate microbes on inert surfaces.

They will not necessarily kill the microorganisms, but they will restrict spread to a great extent. There are many disinfectants available in the market, but not all of them ensure maximum protection, and certainly not without unwanted hazardous toxins requiring a separate set of application safety protocols and associated personal protective equipment(PPE).
