How to Keep Your Business Clean in the Time of COVID-19

When your business opens (or if it has already), it’s important to be sure that all surfaces are kept clean and free from germs as much as possible. COVID-19 has already hurt many businesses across many industries, and everyone needs to do their part in slowing the spread of the virus. To keep your business premises clean, be mindful of these practices.

 

COVID-19 and Keeping Your Business Clean

 

Use trusted cleaning products

The right tools and techniques can help protect your business, employees, and guests. Be aware that new chemicals to fight COVID-19 may not be suitable for some surfaces. Using the wrong chemical agents could easily damage a surface in your business – and your business property insurance probably won’t cover it. Use cleaning products from this Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) list of effective disinfectants for COVID-19.

 

Maintain social distancing

In many ways, social distancing will stay with us for a long time. It’s worth considering how these guidelines will affect your business when you reopen. Will you need to move employee desks further apart? Should you mark out six feet in guest checkout lines? Implement practices to help everyone keep their distance.

 

Set new guidelines

Most importantly, encourage employees to wash their hands regularly. This should be before and after eating, coming into the workplace from outside, and after using the restroom. Ask them to wash their hands for at least 20 seconds with anti-bacterial hand soap and warm water.
