Top 5 High-Touch Areas to Sanitize
You are probably worried about the most often touched or shared spaces in your office. Office Pride Commercial Cleaning Services can sanitize any worrisome areas, but these rank as our Top 5 recommendations.
1. Door Handles and Drawer Pulls
Out of pure habit, people kindly hold open doors for colleagues or guests without thinking twice. They also pull open drawers or open the refrigerator door in the kitchen, leaving their own germs behind. Frequently sanitizing all door handle and drawer pulls is essential.
2. Elevator Buttons
If you haven’t already noticed, we bet you soon will start noticing people using an elbow or knuckle to push elevator buttons. Observe new routines and ideas that you see others trying and decide if they will work for you. On top of precautions people might take in an elevator, sanitizing the buttons and the railing daily are musts.
3. Restroom/Sink Faucets
A vulnerable area by nature, the restroom is a host for germs. Toilet bowls, sinks, mirrors, surface areas, light switches and more all must be cleaned and sanitized daily. Office Pride also uses color-coded and/or disposable cloths for certain types of cleaning to avoid cross-contamination between restrooms and other office areas.
4. Shared Eating Spaces
An office is a second home, particularly in the kitchen. It’s time to unwind, visit with the team and share a meal (and a space to eat). It’s never been more important to have guidelines in place and a sanitary place to eat.
5. Shared Meeting Spaces
Everyone brings laptops, notebooks, pens, coffee and water into meetings. It’s like they have brought their workspace to the meeting space – along with germs, microbes and viruses. Office Pride uses EPA-approved chemicals and follows recommended “dwell times,” which is the time that a disinfectant must remain on a surface to kill germs.
