Your staff is one of your biggest expenses and also your biggest asset. They work to ensure every aspect of your business runs smoothly, so your clients are happy, and your business keeps growing. With flu season just around the corner, it’s important to put your business on the offensive to prevent your employees from falling sick. 

 

Illness can bounce through a commercial space, leaving lethargy and unproductive weeks, or even months, in its wake. Partnering with the right Calgary commercial cleaner can help stop sickness in its tracks, protecting your investment in your people and your bottom line.

 

Clean and Disinfect. The flu spreads when people first touch an infected surface and then touch their eyes, mouth, or nose. Fortunately, the flu virus is relatively easy to kill. With the right cleaners, the flu virus can be completely eliminated from surfaces, but disinfecting only works retroactively.  Each time a surface is recontaminated, it needs to be disinfected again. 

 

Don’t rely on your employees to remember to clean and sanitize their work, kitchen, and bathroom surfaces. Partner with a reputable commercial cleaning team, like Strathcona Cleaners, so you can have complete confidence in your flu prevention initiatives.

 

Target High-Touch Surfaces. Desks, countertops, the arms of office chairs, doorknobs, keyboards, faucets, light switches, microwaves or toaster ovens, and the phones are all touched frequently throughout the day by numerous people. These surfaces should be fully sanitized at least once daily using a proven disinfectant. Exceptionally germ-prone areas, like the lock on bathroom cubicles, need even more attention.

 

Choose the Right Green Cleaning Products. The wrong cleaning products can leave your business in a chemical haze. It’s hard for your team to be at their best — and your clients to focus on your latest pitch — if they’re suffocating in a fog of disinfectant. At Strathcona Cleaners, we only use the best green cleaning products. Our eco-friendly disinfectants are easy on the environment and on your staff, so your team can breathe easy all through flu season.

 

Without the right action plan, flu season can easily wipe out your staff productivity for a month or more. Keep sickness at bay by encouraging your staff to get their flu shot, advising sick employees to stay home, and partnering with the right Calgary commercial cleaning team. Call Strathcona Cleaners today, and keep you workplace a flu-free zone this winter.
