Office Cleaning Methods, as Imposed by WHO Against CoVID-19

This lockdown phase seems to be never-ending, but we all have to go back to our usual work processes sooner or later; hence, this guide on office cleaning methods imposed by WHO must be practiced from now. The cleaning checklist discussed here is about sanitizing an office space fully to ensure personal safety.

Dust the office:

Wipe the dust buildup on tabletops and other furniture.

Upon entering, you’re quite likely to notice dust on tables and chairs including surfaces of all the furniture inside the workspace. 

Dust buildup isn’t just eye-soothing but also potential carriers of viruses or germs capable of infection. 

 The best part is, we know offices that are soon going to reinitiate their operations.

Following the dust clean up, breathing inside the office will be much easier.

Apply these precautionary measures during office cleaning:

During any office cleaning work, make sure you’re completely covered with NIOSH and WHO certified PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). 

An employer must provide the following list of items to their cleaners before initiating work.

Cleaning and disinfecting process by adopting the safest standards.

Once you begin the cleanup, you need to make sure that not the slightest bit of skin portions remain exposed; therefore, must wear these following gears:

  • A particulate mask by 3M, N95 preferably.
  • A pair of gloves covering your arms.
  • Shoe covers for covering your feet.
  • Protective eye covers or goggles. 
  • Knee pads for wiping low area spaces. 
  • A headcover for shielding your head.

Apply Clorox before wiping tabletops or any other frequently touched spots like doorknobs or taps.

For each of these gears mentioned above, look closely at the packaging for WHO and/or NIOSH certifications

In addition to protecting your own self, make sure that your whole team is equally equipped with adequate PPE.

Certainly, they will also feel safe working with you.

Souvenirs like hand sanitizers are impressionable. People will remember you.
  • Hand sanitizers on the reception desk so employees can wash their hands before entering the premises every time. 
  • A box of reusable mask supplies or gloves for employees, in case it doesn’t exceed your budget.
  • Replace hand dryers with toilet papers in every washroom, as the latter lowers the chances for spreading viruses and other microbes. 

As a matter of fact, leaving such souvenirs will generate a sense of authenticity in your client; moreover, it will definitely make them rehire your commercial cleaning services. 

You could hang a signboard on the wall stating all the general guidelines for suppressing the chances of infection.  

  • Reminding to maintain social distance within the office.
  • Reminding frequent hand washing or sanitizing.
  • Remaining at home if feeling unwell. 
  • Wearing a mask at all times.

If you’re the one leading your office cleaning team, then as a leader it’s your job to ensure complete safety for your members too. 

And that means, supplying them with proper PPE and other necessary items. 

There are gloves made of nitrile, which are comparatively safer than that of latex gloves. 

Warm water for disinfecting viruses:

You know how genuinely important it is to have access to warm water for deep cleaning or sanitizing any workplace.
Apply warm water on doorknobs, table surfaces, elevator switches, and any other spots that are frequently touched. Use disinfectant or sanitizer following every office cleaning job.

Disinfecting refers to the usage of chemicals that are EPA-registered; meaning, chemicals must kill germs manifesting inside any office space.

  • doorknobs
  • desk surfaces
  • taps in the loo
