Importance of Winter Disinfecting

Whether winter is your favorite time of the year, or you are counting down to longer, warmer days of sunshine, one things is true about winter: you are more likely to catch some diseases in the winter time. Scientists argue about what exactly makes winter a prime time for spreading cold, the flu, and even Covid-19. Some believe that cold air makes it easier for respiratory illnesses to spread, while others suggest that higher rates of illness are due to the fact that more people are spending time indoors. Whatever the reason, we are more likely to get sick in the winter, which makes it a good time to get a winter disinfecting service!

What can you do about it? If you are like many business owners, you are still recovering from business shutdowns that came at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The last thing you want to do is get your customers sick or have employees miss time because of illness. So, you need to take steps to disinfect your business for the winter.

Sanitise your office regularly. You may already be using disinfect sprays, wipes, and cleaners on your office surfaces. However, are they getting to the surfaces you do not regularly clean? At Monita Janitorial, we can use disinfecting mists that completely sanitize a room’s hard surfaces and greatly reduce germs present in soft surfaces. We can incorporate sanitising into a regular cleaning schedule or as a stand-alone service to start your off on a clean slate.

Consider investing in an air purification system. Whether you purchase a stand-alone air purifier or install one as part of your HVAC system, they are a proven way to improve indoor air quality. While no air purifier can completely eliminate germs in the air, they can greatly reduce the number of freely moving germs in the air. That means a reduced risk of disease spread.

Disinfect high-touch surfaces regularly. Spend a little time watching what items your customers and employees touch on a frequent basis. Then, commit to a schedule of cleaning those high-touch surfaces. Door handles, light switches, bathroom faucets, and elevator buttons are some common high-touch areas. Do you have pens for customers to sign credit card receipts? Regularly wipe-down electronic pens and consider having a pile of sanitized pens and used pens so that customers can use them once and lower the risk of touch-spread disease.

There is no way to keep a business with people in it completely free of germs. However, by taking the above steps, you can go a long way towards disinfecting your workplace.
