It’s not wrong to say that the fight against Coronavirus in the UK has not gone as well as anyone would have hoped and with unclear messages from the Government and unenforced rules, infection rates have risen again.
Amidst all of this when cleaning should be at the forefront of every business, the efforts of the cleaning sector are unfortunately quickly being forgotten
Back in March the PM thanked the cleaning sector for their input and highlighted the importance of the work cleaning operatives do but where are we now. Companies are struggling to stay afloat and in trying to cut costs are ditching their dedicated cleaning teams in favour of using their own staff to carry out the work yet this shows little value for cleaning and hygiene despite the obvious benefits this would bring to the business.
Cleaning and disinfecting is a critical line of defence against the pandemic and it being carried out by trained cleaning operatives is key to keeping facilities safe and cleaning standards should be better than ever to ensure premises are COVID secure and to instil confidence in staff and customers alike.
Experienced cleaning operatives are trained in cross contamination prevention and infection control measures.
With winter coming and the pandemic still at large, investing in robust cleaning procedures and utilising the services of a professional cleaning company is now more important than ever.
