The importance of cleaning touch points
Having a regular cleaning schedule for high-contact building places is crucial. It limits the spread of bugs and improves the cleanliness of the workplace.
So, what is a high touch point?
There can be differences between businesses and industries. Some common touch points are things like door handles, light switches, kettle handles and microwave buttons.
Handy tips for cleaning your Southwest Wales factory
Why is cleaning high-traffic areas so important?
Because high touch points are used or touch much more, they will be the first places to show signs of wear or dirtiness.
So taking extra care to keep these areas clean will improve the overall cleanliness feel of the business.
Another reason it’s so important is to stop the spread of germs amongst your employees.
With so many people touching them every day, cleaning these areas regularly can help stop the spread. This in turn means less staff absences!
How often do touch points need to be cleaned?
It’s always best to offer antibacterial wipes or gels near particularly high-risk areas like toilet doors.
Wherever possible you should be cleaning high touch points regularly to keep the business looking clean and employees safer from germs.
Remember, not all surfaces or materials are suitable for all cleaning products or tools. Take care before using a new cleaning product on an area or you might risk either damaging the surface or not properly disinfecting it.
