Keeping Your Facility Clean During A Pandemic

It’s now more important than ever to ensure you are keeping your facility clean during this worldwide pandemic.

As professional cleaning experts, we are here to share some of our top tips on how you can ensure you’re keeping your facility clean. A clean workplace ensures maximized safety for you, your staff, and your customers keeping the virus at bay.


Firstly, it’s important to consider the PPE you should have available in your workplace. Every facility should have the following items to ensure safety for all.

  • Rubber gloves
  • Facemasks
  • Shoe protectors
  • Eye protection

It important that these pieces of PPE are provided to all when required in public spaces and particularly when cleaning to minimise the spread of the virus.

Cleaning Equipment

In terms of equipment and products, there are some vital items you should always have on-site. These are items such as:

  • Antibacterial wipes and spray
  • Mop
  • Hand Sanitiser
  • Vacuum cleaner
  • microfibre cloths

The most important element to this list when we’re talking in regards to a pandemic virus is the antibacterial products. Without these, we fail to kill the bacteria and germs spreading the virus.

Where Should I Be Cleaning?

To ensure optimal cleanliness within your facility you should regularly be cleaning and disinfecting every area of your workplace. However, some (not all) key high traffic areas to focus on are as follows:

  • Door handles
  • Kitchen areas and surfaces
  • Office equipment – this should be done after every use before another person uses the item
  • Soft furnishings such as sofas and office chairs
  • Bathroom areas
  • Lightswitches
  • Desk areas

Ideally, you should be disinfecting these areas on a daily basis at least. However, if you can you should consider doing this more frequently particularly when it comes to high traffic equipment. Encourage your employees and visitors to hand sanitise as often as they can especially when coming into contact with high traffic areas.
