Celebrating National Cleaning Week
This year, March
22nd-28th celebrates National Cleaning Week. Headed by a
trade association for the international cleaning industry, ISSA, National
Cleaning Week raises awareness of the importance of cleanliness and the impacts
it has on public health, the environment, and the economy.
Our country is
in a bit of an upheaval right now. With fears of spreading COVID-19 through
communities, many Texas schools are preparing for the possibility of suspending
classes, and people everywhere are being encouraged to limit their contact to
curb transmissions. While concerns may be rising, the timing of National
Cleaning Week could not possibly be more perfect. Right now, it is an important
time to not just consider personal cleanliness but to ensure the safety of professional
environments for employees and patrons.
The CDC has
offered a lot of guidance for avoiding transmissions of COVID-19 and has
encouraged basic tenants of hand washing and social distancing. However, many
offices and industries have no choice but to remain open during this time.
Thus, businesses must actively continue to address the health and safety
concerns of their employees as they attend to their daily responsibilities. While
some basic cleanliness requirements can be maintained by individuals, institutions
carry a responsibility to their employees when it comes to the cleanliness of
workspaces. While maintaining a hygienic environment in office spaces is always
important, offering security and transparency during this more trying time is
bound to make workers feel that their safety and health is a priority to their employers.
offices can benefit from these professional cleaning services. High traffic
businesses such as health care offices and retail stores will remain active, as
many people will be seeking services and purchasing necessities. Securing the
hygiene of these frequented spaces will go to lengths to protect healthcare
workers, patients, employees, and customers.
efficient way to achieve this is by employing professional cleaning services. Full-service
janitorial companies have the experience and expertise to ensure that office
spaces, commercial properties, and even retail spaces can remain as clean and
safe as possible for the health of both employees, clients, and customers. Professional
cleaning services like DBM supply sanitation that goes above and beyond. While
handwashing and cleanliness in personal spaces is something individuals can maintain
on their own, only experts really know the key to efficient sanitation.
Professional janitorial services have the tools and know-how to guarantee the
cleanliness of areas that may otherwise be overlooked. With the use of Touch
Point, floor, carpet, upholstery cleaning, and more, professional cleaners use
industrial cleaners and up to date technologies to reach the places that are
often forgotten, and where contaminants may hide.
Although it may
seem like a strange celebration, National Cleaning Week is a perfect
opportunity to educate about the importance of overall hygiene not just at
home, but in the spaces we work in or visit every day. Especially right now,
encouraging the awareness and education of cleanliness and utilizing
professional janitorial services in such endeavors will help to maintain the
health and safety of not only ourselves but our communities.
