Floor Cleaning During COVID 19

The verdict on whether COVID-19 can be an air-borne pathogen isn’t clear, but we do know that, at least most of the time, the droplets tumble from the air to collect on the floor and surfaces. But does that really necessitate improving your floor cleaning policy? After all, your staff aren’t sitting on the floor, and your clients aren’t going to be taking off their shoes.

 

Except, of course they are. Your team members and customers may not be taking off their shoes in your business, but they will once they get home. While many loafers and slip on shoes can be easily removed without touching them with your hands, most of us still pick up our shoes to return them to the closet or another tidy location. At that point, it’s easy for dirt, viruses, and other germs to transfer from the shoe to the hands. Your clients or customers may also have small children at home. Many toddlers love playing with shoes, and they won’t know to wash their hands afterwards.

 

Further, your staff may not sit on the floor, but they will touch floor-contaminated surfaces more often than we expect. Papers and goods fall to the floor and need to be picked up. Something heavy is put down for a second while an employee opens a door. A brief case is set on the ground and then moved to a table. In a single moment, invisible viruses are everywhere within reach.
