South Africa is aiming to progress towards less strict stages of lockdown. This means that more businesses will be reopening their doors - bringing some financial relief to small business owners and employees who have had no form of income since the end of March.
However, before companies start trading once again, it is vital to consider the cleanliness and hygiene of the business premises. Business owners need to evaluate whether their store, office, warehouse, reception or factory is clean enough for the return of employees and customers.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way the world will operate and has brought with it a need to maintain exceptional hygiene standards. Any public space or room that hosts human interaction needs to be disinfected and sanitised on a regular basis. This takes time and manpower, so may it may be wise to outsource these tasks to a professional contract cleaner like IWESCO.
IWESCO ensures the highest standards
We hold several certifications that guarantee our professional standards. IWESCO has an ISO 14001 certification for environmental management. The cleaning products and methods we use are not harmful to the environment. We also follow HACCP guidelines for workplace safety to minimise hazards and risks for employees.
IWESCO also adheres to international protocols for COVID-19 protection, which means that our teams are fully equipped with the correct personal protective equipment (PPE). We help to minimise the risk of infection by sanitising spaces thoroughly and regularly. This gives business owners and employees peace of mind that they are operating in a safe environment.
Processes for hygiene and sanitisation
IWESCO can help your business in the reopening phase by keeping it clean and disinfected. We can do this as a once-off offering before you open your doors to customers, or as an ongoing service for maximum risk reduction. As a contract cleaning company, we know what equipment and sanitisation products work the best for any type of surface.
We have also added thermal fogging to our list of service offerings. This process involves spraying a fine mist of chemical disinfectant into a sealed room. The disinfectant creates a fog that settles on all surfaces within the space, providing maximum protection against germs, bacteria and virus spores. The chemicals we use are not hazardous to humans once the room is opened.
Besides thermal fogging, we can offer industrial cleaning solutions to companies along with specialist advice. We can effectively remove any build-up of dust, grime or dirt from carpets, tiles, wood and other surfaces. Make sure that your business is clean enough to reopen and make a good impression on your customers. To get a quote or to set up a virtual meeting with one of our experts, please contact us today.
