With Things Opening Up You Need to Protect Your Staff & Customers
Unfortunately for us, COVID-19 doesn’t seem like it will be going away anytime in the near future, so we need to adapt our cleaning services to meet the challenges of the ongoing pandemic. The first of many difficulties to overcome is that your regular cleaning services may no longer be sufficient to safeguard the health of your staff and patrons.
You and your facility may need help well before the night crew shows up. Coronavirus isn’t going to wait for your nightly disinfection service provider to show up and can easily spread around your facility in a few hours. In order to provide the most solid line of defense possible now might be the ideal time to add day porter disinfection services to your cleaning and disinfection plan. Not only is this a good practice, it sends the message to staff that you take the potential threats seriously.
Unlike regularly scheduled night cleaners, day porters are in your building during the workday providing regular cleaning, disinfection and maintenance which can greatly reduce the risk of SARS-CoV-2 from spreading like wildfire. Not only does it offer you the ability to target high traffic areas throughout the day, it gives you an immediate response team to any potentially infected surfaces or objects. Don’t risk the health of your team and customers, let a professional day porter disinfection service minimize the risk of infection in your building all while providing a superior cleaning experience.
Why You Might Benefit From Day Porter Services
There are two important aspects to protecting and disinfecting your facility to keep it safe for patrons and staff alike. The first is managing and disinfecting high traffic areas before they become high risk areas. Door handles, restrooms and other commonly used objects and locations will receive a lot of attention and thus have a significantly higher chance of coming into contact with COVID-19. To counteract this, day porters can target their cleaning to address these areas so that they are receiving regular disinfection. Not only does this minimize the risk of an outbreak but also gives people the peace of mind that their health is being looked out for.
The second aspect is damage control. It is impossible to completely protect your building and as such you need a response team if someone gets sick. It simply isn’t possible to wait for your night cleaning service to quarantine and properly disinfect an area. With a day porter, however, you are able to quickly seal off the areas an infected individual was in and disinfect them without having to worry about the risk of it spreading. Not only does this ensure that the impact of an outbreak is minimal, it also helps to control the impact on the day to day flow of your building. The faster the issue is addressed the faster you can go back to business.
Letting a Day Porter do What a Day Porter Does Best
A day porter service isn’t a set it and forget it type of cleaning program, however. The best and most effective day porter services and office disinfection services have the best communication and information backing them up. As a Facility Manager, you know your building better than anyone else and as such it is your responsibility to fill your day porter in on all the quirks and idiosyncrasies it has so that they can provide the most efficient, streamlined and seamless service possible.
For instance, you know which areas receive the most daily traffic and how daily traffic changes from day to day on average. Communicating this information to your day porter allows them to adjust their cleaning schedule to match this varying rate of usage so that they can provide the most coverage without interrupting the regular flow of work in your building. Furthermore, open communication between you and your day porter allows for problems to quickly be identified and addressed so that they don’t spiral out of control.
In the middle of a pandemic, responsiveness and adaptability are key to creating a safe, healthy work environment for you, your staff and your customers. A day porter is only as effective as the information they are provided - the more detailed you are in the day to day operations of your building the higher quality service you can expect to receive.
A Day Porter Service to the Rescue
All too often we run into Facility Managers that had no idea day porter services existed. Traditional cleaning certainly has its merits but the efficacy, responsiveness and adaptability of day porters make them the perfect service to safeguard the health of your workplace and create some desperately needed peace of mind during this time of crisis. The right day porter service could transform your office cleaning and facility maintenance.
