As winter blankets the world in its chilly embrace, businesses must prepare to face unique hygiene challenges. The season not only ushers in the holiday spirit but also brings with it a host of cleanliness concerns. From the relentless battle against germs to the maintenance of a welcoming and safe environment for customers and employees, winter demands a specialized approach to hygiene. AEG Cleaning Service is here to guide you through the winter months with our top four winter hygiene tips designed to keep your business shining even in the darkest of days. Don’t let the cold compromise your cleanliness; let’s dive into these essential winter hygiene strategies to ensure your business remains inviting, healthy, and successful throughout the season.
Keeping your business premises clean and hygienic is important at any time of year, of course, but it is perhaps most important during the winter months, when flu and other nasty bugs can spread very quickly indeed.
And then there’s the added pressure of covid-19 and the lasting legacy of the pandemic… people’s hygiene expectations are higher now than they ever have been and if your site is dirty or not well looked after, it could spell trouble for your business.
It can be more difficult to maintain hygiene standards at this time of year, as wintry weather inevitably means wind, rain, sleet and snow.
Muddy footprints are an absolute given over the next few months, so it’s more important now than ever to make sure that you have a robust cleaning regime in place – and the help of East London office cleaners like us to ensure that the job is done properly and professionally.
In the meantime, here are a few top tips from the team here at AEG Cleaning to help you keep your premises spick, span and spotless this winter. If you need any further assistance, get in touch with us today!
Focus on high traffic areas
Pay particular attention to parts of your office or business site that see a lot of use, such as door handles, desk phones, tables and desks, kitchen countertops and so on. Germs can spread very easily so any areas that are communal should also be at the top of your priority cleaning list.
Put mats down
Prevention is better than cure when it comes to cleaning and you can make life a lot easier for yourself if you place mats strategically in certain areas, such as near entrances and exits, so that people can wipe their feet as they come and go.
This will help prevent mud and dirt from being tracked through into your internal spaces, keeping it out of carpets which are far harder to clean than other types of flooring.
Keep cleaning products within easy reach
If you can’t find your cleaning products, you’ll find it very tricky indeed to clean! By ensuring that you have a well-stocked cleaning cupboard, you’ll be able to carry out instant cleans as and when required, making your site far more hygienic and making it easier to do deeper cleans in the future.
Increase staff awareness
Even if you do all you can to keep your premises spotless, individuals may still need to be reminded about the importance of personal hygiene at this time of year.
Perhaps consider putting up a few posters here and there warning staff members about the dangers of germs and bacteria, or putting hand sanitiser, soap and disinfectant within easy reach throughout the site.
