Our equipment does a great job at detecting microbes in your commercial space and removing them. Even though our equipment does a great job, you still have a job to do regarding microbial spread in your office. If you’re looking to minimize the spread of germs in your office, you have some quick ways to kill germs. Below, we’ll discuss some of those quick way to kill germs in your commercial building.

Wash Your Hands

Your hands hold many germs. Think about how many different things you touch in a day. That’s a lot of germs you’re moving from place to place. By washing your hands after using the bathroom (a place with plenty of germs on its own) or before eating is one of the easiest and quickest ways to kill germs throughout the day. For any reason, if you’re unable to wash your hands, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol to reduce germ spread. Washing your hands is the preferred way, but hand sanitizer works if it’s the only thing on hand.

Disinfect Surfaces Daily

Germs exist on every surface in your office building. To get rid of the germs, you’ll want to disinfect surfaces on a regular basis. Our equipment helps in disinfecting the surfaces and air in your commercial building. However, the more you stay on top of cleaning, the less the equipment will have to work, prolonging the machinery’s life. That means it will last longer, leaving you a cleaner office overall. When you have an office without germs, it helps to keep you and your employees safe from germs that make them sick.

Clean Spills Immediately

Accidents happen. Sometimes, you or your employees may spill something in the office. Instead of leaving it sit, it’s crucial that you clean up any spills as soon as they happen. Not only does that cut down on the likelihood of mold growth if it’s a liquid, it cuts down on bacterial growth overall. Depending on the type of spill, the bacteria that will grow if it’s not taken care of promptly could get the rest of the office sick if they’re exposed too long or accidentally put something on top of the spill not knowing about it and then move whatever it is around.

Replace Hand Towels Regularly

Does your office have cloth hand towels? Do you know how often they get cleaned? If the cloth towels are in the bathroom, think about how many people touch them with germy hands. As a general rule of thumb, it’s best to clean hand towels that aren’t single use every week. Luckily for you, it’s easy to remove germs from hand towels. A simple run through the washing machine does the trick.
