Decontamination and Containment

The cornerstone of any effective microbial protection plan is to decontaminate and contain the space. This is what we’re good at. We’ll bring our machines to your space to measure the initial number of pathogens in the air and on the surfaces of your space. From there, we evaluate the needs of your space based on the results of the initial testing. Next, we’ll stabilize the area if the initial reports show a higher level of microbes than other areas of your space. Then, we’ll install our equipment without any disruption to the happenings of your office. The equipment works 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Finally, you’ll receive regular reports from the equipment detailing the microbes found in your space. We’ll inspect the equipment on a regular basis and send replacement cells every 24 months.

Set Up Handwashing Stations

Washing your hands is a highly effective way of reducing germs around the office. Your hands touch different things and surfaces each day, giving them ample opportunity to pick up different germs throughout the day. By washing your hands regularly, you cut down on the risk of passing the germs to other people. It also cuts down on the chance of those germs will make you sick. In order for the handwashing to be effective, you need to wash them for at least 20 seconds.

Clean High Touch Surfaces Regularly

How often do you clean the surfaces in your space? If it’s been a while, you might want to start cleaning them. Surfaces hold onto germs and other microbes, so the more often you can clean surfaces, the less germs will stay on there. Some of the high touch surfaces in commercial spaces include door handles, the coffeemaker, kitchen sponges and scrub brushes, desks, and your computer.

Stay Home If You’re Sick

Finally, one of the easiest ways to keep the office germ free is by allowing employees who are under the weather to work from home until they feel better. The pandemic showed employers that employees can still work effectively outside the traditional workplace. If your industry allows for working from home, encourage your employees to take advantage of it if they’re sick.

Staying healthy takes a lot of different actions. By taking steps to keeping the office germ free, you can do your part in protecting your employees from microbes. At Extreme Microbial Technologies, we’ve made it our mission to have workplaces maintain consistently low levels of microbes.
