Fight the Flu Year Round with Workplace Cleanliness

The 2018 flu season has left everybody feeling weary and paranoid. Though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has declared that the flu season has finally, finally peaked, it warns that there are still unusually high numbers of flu-related hospitalizations occurring around the nation. This means that we can all breathe a slight sigh of relief, but we cannot become careless in our cleaning habits.

One of the most powerful ways to prevent the pervasive spread of the flu begins in the workplace. Just like schools, offices and other workplaces are hubs of germs and contagious diseases. By taking certain preventive measures, offices can ensure that they do not enable the spread of the flu.

Undergo Regular, Thorough Cleanings

Only regular and comprehensive cleanings can reduce the presence of bacteria in office spaces. The true quantity of germs lingering in offices was proven in a 2014 study in which researchers placed a norovirus-like sample on doorknobs, tabletops, and other surfaces within office spaces. They found that 40-60 percent of office surfaces had been contaminated with the virus within less than 4 hours!

Summer is Almost Over! Is Your School Building Ready for Students?

Teachers and students alike rejoice each summer as they survive the final day of school and prepare to enjoy two months of vacation. This means that unlike other commercial and industrial spaces that are used year-round, school buildings are virtually empty throughout July and early August. The majority of professional cleaning can take place during this time to ensure beautiful and comprehensive results.

The Key Cleaning Areas

The Dirtiest Places in Your Office

You and your colleagues spend a great deal of time in the office each day, which equates to a constant exchange of germs and bacteria in the air. As it turns out, certain spots in your office are far dirtier than others. If you want to avoid getting sick, be sure that the following areas receive extra cleaning attention each week!

The Doorknob

According to recent research, a single doorknob in the workplace can spread germs throughout an entire building very rapidly. One study purposefully applied a virus to doorknobs in public facilities and found that up to 60 percent of employees and visitors had picked up the virus within two hours! In between professional cleaning sessions, disinfecting wipes can be used to reduce the spread of bacteria around your office by up to 99 percent.  

3 Major Consequences of Cutting Corners on Commercial Cleaning

Whether you manage a movie theater, fitness center, country club, car dealership, or office building, there are certain products and services that your customers expect you to deliver in a reliable and friendly fashion. However, it is important to remember that many other aspects of your business will sway consumer behavior just as heavily as the quality of your goods and services. The cleanliness and organization of your building, for instance, is very influential in shaping the impression that your past, potential, and future customers will retain about your business.

What’s the Difference between Residential and Commercial Cleaning?

Whether in a home, office, or retail space, cleanliness is an important priority for many different reasons. However, there are many differences in how commercial cleaning should be tackled compared to residential cleaning. While cleaning your home only needs to suffice for your own needs and expectations, commercial cleaning must keep employees, customers, and other visitors safe, comfortable, and satisfied. This is why businesses and companies always turn to a professional commercial cleaning company like Royal Building Maintenance in Tampa, Florida to handle all of their cleaning needs in a way that is distinctly different from residential services.

Tips and Tricks for Making Your Classroom a Sick-Free Zone

Germs are everywhere around us, especially in classrooms where children from many different homes come together and share common surfaces every day. Teachers are known for their impressive immune systems after spending years enduring every strain of bacteria imaginable, but children don’t usually have such strong disease fighting capabilities. These tips and tricks are designed to help prevent the spread of illnesses in classrooms all year round.

The Benefits of Hiring a Professional Office Cleaner

Cleaning is a time-consuming but necessary component of home and business ownership. Though many homeowners can handle keeping their own bathrooms, floors, and kitchens clean, office buildings are another matter altogether. It is critical that business offices hire and rely  upon a commercial cleaning company to keep office space organized, clean, sanitary, and safe. Let your own business focus on what it does best, and allow a professional cleaning company to come in and do what they do best.

What’s in Your Carpet?

Carpeting is an important element in any commercial setting. It adds atmosphere, hides stains, and provides a sense of comfort. However, carpets also collect dirt, germs, and grime, especially carpets created and installed specifically for commercial purposes.  Professional and regular carpet cleaning is one of the most important components to improving the appearance of and extending the life of commercial carpets.

The Truth About Commercial Carpets

Cleaners Stay Clean, but Can They Stay Green?

Commercial cleaners play a critical role in the business world, far more than most people realize. From floors and desks to trash and disinfectants, commercial cleaners are responsible for keeping public buildings in prime condition for the safe and enjoyable use of customers, employees, and employers. Now that sustainable waste management is becoming a priority for more and more companies, it’s worth taking a look at how commercial cleaners can stay clean and stay green.

The Importance of Finding, Controlling, and Eliminating Pathogens

Professional cleaners play a critical role in public health, much more than most people realize. Pathogens, also known simply as germs, are present everywhere in public, commercial buildings, especially in hospitals, restrooms, gyms, pools, and other places where humans are most likely to unintentionally exchange sweat and other sources of infection. It is up to professional commercial cleaners to understand the biology of pathogens in order to neutralize them and keep all public spaces clean and safe each day. This is no easy task.

Understanding Pathogens

Of the potentially 100 million species on this earth, pathogens account for 3 million of them. Humans, meanwhile, are one solitary species. In short, we are wildly outnumbered by microbes and germs that have the ability to make us sick. Pneumonia, tuberculosis, and so many other conditions can be easily passed from person to person when proper preventions are not taken. While vaccinations have helped wipe out many diseases that used to be considered major threats, like polio and the measles, germs are still responsible for spreading E coli, salmonella, herpes, MRSA, the common cold, and more.
