Our cleaners are continually confronted with varying degrees of biohazards and play a major role in infection control in the commercial properties we clean. This applies not just to our customers in the medical industry but also includes our customers in the hospitality industry and through to our commercial office customers.
The level of bugs and germs we encounter relies heavily on the particular cleaning task we are performing. Coughs, sneezing or the neglect of washing hands thoroughly can cause the spread of viruses and bacteria throughout the workplace. When cleaning medical facilities or washrooms in any establishment, our staff are frequently exposed to and trained to manage Biological Hazards in the form of body fluids such as blood, vomit, urine or faeces and discarded needles.
It is our practice to pay special attention to areas that people touch which spread those dastardly bugs and germs throughout the workplace. Such as cleaning in the toilet – the flushers; toilet seats, handles, taps, light switches. It’s by focusing on the detail that our cleaners can maintain a clean and healthy working environment for our customers.
Our cleaning staff, armed with protective gloves for their own personal protection, are supplied with the appropriate cleaning equipment (colour coded to minimise cross contamination), disinfectants (Safety Data Sheets are provided) and training to control and eliminate the spread of viruses and bacteria.
Finally, in the interests of personal protection and hygiene, we recommend to our customers that they encourage their staff to practice good hygiene by washing hands thoroughly, ideally with a sanitising gel.
