We all want our homes to be clean and safe, it is important that the workplace is kept clean as well. Cleanliness of the workplace can have a significant impact on the health of the workforce, so it is essential that the working environment is kept clean and that means making sure that you have the correct cleaning products to make a proper job of it.
With this in mind, we have compiled a list of 5 essential cleaning products to ensure a cleaner workplace.
1. Floor Cleaning
Having the right floor cleaning equipment available is essential for the cleanliness of any workplace. Evaluate your workplace needs and decide if you need cleaning, scrubbing and sweeping equipment, or if a simple mop with Xynol Premium Floor Cleaner will do the job.
A workplace will also need a quality commercial vacuum with a proper filtration system to effectively remove and contain dust and soil from carpets.
High contact and high touch areas should be cleaned and disinfected with Xynol Multi Surface Disinfectant very often, ideally after each use to ultimately stop the spread of germs spreading across the workplace. Frequently used areas include light switches, keyboards, phones, door handles, countertops, desks and stairwell handrails.
It is also important to note that disinfectants should only be used on a visibly clean surface as they will not work effectively if the surface is covered in grease or visible dirt.
3. TOILET CLEANER
A clean toilet for your employees would improve their overall mood and motivate them to work, Use Germpic Toilet Cleaner. A dirty toilet would not only cause ailments, but could also decrease the morale of everyone in the office. Nobody would want to relieve themselves in an unclean loo and this could result in the loss of desire to perform well.
4. Hand Soaps
Keeping your hands clean is one of the best ways to ensure workplace cleanliness and prevent employees from getting sick and spreading germs to other members of the team.
This means everyone in the workplace should regularly wash hands with Xynol Antibacterial Handwash water for at least 20 seconds, for example after using the toilet or handling food. It can also mean using an alcohol-based hand sanitiser with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not readily available.
One of the simplest ways to control odours and contain waste is ensuring the workplace has enough correctly sized bins that are changed regularly. Often, bins are incorrectly sized for the area – too large, and the bin may not get changed as needed, causing odours and bacteria to harbour. Too small, and the rubbish may overfill prematurely. Best practice is to separate your waste into recycling, waste and food waste. Check with your local council if you are unsure how you are separating your waste.
