A new report by MP’s following the COVID pandemic calls for minimum cleaning standards to be introduced for venues.
The standards proposed include frequency guidelines and depth of cleaning and the key message of the report is that cleaning and hygiene is to be given top priority in the future in the hope that it will lead to a healthier, happier and safer public.
During the height of the pandemic, we saw a huge increase from businesses enquiring about increasing their existing cleaning program and requests for deep cleaning, anti-viral fogging and specialist cleaning however few of those businesses have maintained their heightened cleaning standards which makes you wonder if businesses truly see cleaning as the priority it should be.
It is proven that businesses which have high hygiene and cleaning standards are more successful, their staff are happier and healthier leading to low turnover and high attendance, their customers return time and time again and their good reviews lead to new business.
If you’re a business owner or in charge of the cleaning for your organisation don’t wait for the government to introduce mandatory cleaning standards, look around your premises, think about how often they are cleaned and are they cleaned properly, ask your staff and visitors how clean they think your premises are and consider any specialist cleaning that might be beneficial to your business.
