With the arrival of September, flu season and the second wave of COVID-19 are due to arrive as Canadians are forced indoors by the coming cold. But if there’s one good thing about this pandemic, it’s that Australia’s careful COVID-mitigation practices also effectively prevented their flu season. That means by staying on top of masking, hand washing, social distancing, and workplace sanitization, we can hopefully prevent both a second wave of COVID-19 and the 2020 flu season. 

 

Hand Washing. Near the entry to your commercial space, set up a little handwashing station. This should be complete with complimentary hand sanitizer and wipes for baskets, buggies, etc. You may wish to include free, disposable masks for any customers (or staff members) who have forgotten theirs. As long as Calgary maintains a mandatory mask bylaw, offering free masks is a good way of ensuring all clients are safely ready to enter your commercial space. When you hire a commercial cleaning team, ask them to sanitize this handwashing station nightly and replenish the hand sanitizer and masks for the next day.

 

Social Distancing. Many public and commercial spaces now use floor stickers to help guide Calgarians to keep proper distance while indoors. These floor decals aren’t cheap, which is why you’ll want to work with a commercial cleaning team that prides itself on floor expertise. Our professional floor cleaners know all flooring types and surfaces. We’re able to carefully maintain your floors with green cleaning techniques that won’t destroy your floor stickers.

 

Workplace Sanitization. As Calgary businesses double down on their focus on health and safety, it’s vital to partner with a trusted Calgary commercial cleaner. From washrooms and foyers to individual work stations, no nook or cranny can be overlooked during this critical time. Businesses are well aware of how much money and time could be at risk if a single case leads to your entire staff being placed under quarantine and sent home to self-isolate. A commercial cleaning team is your best defence against the spread of illness. 

 

Canada’s health experts are predicting a second wave of COVID, but it is preventable if Canadians band together to prevent it. As a business owner, we’ve no doubt you’re feeling pressured to keep both your customers and your staff safe and healthy. Let our team help, so you can get back to focusing on what you do best without worrying about workplace sanitation.
