Cleaning for Healthier Workplaces in Winter - Strathcona Cleaners - Cleaning Services Calgary

Winter brings new, unique challenges to health and cleanliness of commercial workplaces each winter. With many people sharing a small space, cleaning needs to be diligent and effective in order to keep up with the obstacles winter presents.

The Easy Stuff

Keeping your office clean is not an easy task. There are however certain easy steps you can take to ensuring a healthy workplace. For example, installing numerous garbage and recycling bins and encouraging employees to wash their hands regularly is important, especially in the winter months. Winter is a season of more workplace illness as well. Encouraging employees to take sick days if they need it is a good way to minimize the spread of germs in the office.

The Big Stuff

The big stuff is what we are here to help you with! What are these steps? Here are a few of the tasks we carry out on a routine basis!

Entryways. Protecting entryways from mud covered, snowy footsteps is a bigger job than it may seem. With numerous people using these entries on a daily basis, dirt from outside can accumulate quickly. Heavy duty rugs are our solution to this as they help to prevent injuries and are easily cleaned.

Air. It’s hard to keep air clean, right? Think again! If you control pollutants before they manage to creep into the air you breathe, you can maintain exceptionally clean air in a workplace. An easy way to do this is to be thorough with dusting, vacuuming it up before it gets into the air.

Regular Disinfectant. Disinfecting shared spaces is key to protecting your office from viruses in the cold winter months. Grab some disinfectant spray and attack objects such as door handles, phones, keyboards, tables, and just about every surface in the restroom. This will help reduce the spread of germs in your workplace and keep your employees healthy this season.
