Top 5 reasons for working with a dedicated FM company when challenged with COVID-19 cleaning
As COVID-19 continues to affect our daily lives it’s more important than ever for businesses to ensure they can provide a safe working environment for their employees to help prevent the spread of illness in their facilities. COVID-19 is likely to remain with us for some time and will continue to produce challenging situations for leadership teams, employees and occupants of business facilities across the country. So how can you rebuild confidence in your organisation and keep your operations running efficiently while remaining safe for employees, visitors, and customers?
By working with a trusted facilities services provider like ourselves you can be guaranteed that we will always regard the safety of your business and staff as a priority, and will do everything possible to ensure you are able to continue operations while providing a safe and welcoming environment.
Here are the top five reasons why you should always work with a dedicated FM company with specialist cleaning services to help keep your business safe and COVID-19 Secure:
1. In-house cleaning teams may not have the expertise required to complete COVID-19 cleaning correctly
COVID-19 cleaning is dangerous and should never be performed without sufficient training, the correct PPE, and the right equipment for the job. It also may not be efficient or budget-friendly for many businesses to train or provide their own in-house cleaning teams with the appropriate equipment and expertise to complete specialist cleaning services, such as COVID-19 decontaminations.
In-house cleaning teams without the correct equipment or appropriate knowledge also face a higher risk of infection due to a lack of training and available resources. They also may not be prepared to go into known contaminated areas for fear of their own safety. However, with the help of a dedicated facilities management provider with fully trained specialist cleaning teams, you can reduce the potential spread of infection by ensuring that any decontaminations of your facilities are completed by trained professionals, all with the required experience and knowledge to safely deliver specialist services for your business.
Dedicated FM companies are able to invest in the expert staff and professional equipment needed to deliver specialist services.
2. We use the latest guidelines, technology and specialised cleaning equipment to prevent infections
In many situations it may be difficult for businesses to justify the large investments needed to purchase the correct equipment required for specialist cleaning services. Dedicated FM companies are able to invest in the expert staff and professional equipment needed to deliver the specialist services necessary to fight against the threat of germs and prevent the spread of infections.
Our teams are always equipped with the latest environmentally friendly chemicals, viricidal products, and spray technologies to ensure your business has been cleaned thoroughly from top to bottom. Our COVID-19 decontamination service also uses a specialist chemical designed to keep all surfaces and touch-points germ-free for up to 30 days, ensuring your staff can continue to work safely and efficiently.
3. Specialist cleaning requires specialist staff and training.
Specialist cleaning activities should never be completed by untrained staff. Even with the right PPE and equipment it’s very important for cleaning teams to be properly trained in service delivery, and have the relevant knowledge of how to correctly clean contaminated areas.
When places of work become potentially dangerous settings due to known infections or outbreaks, businesses should always put the safety of their staff and customers first by ensuring their premises are immediately cleaned and decontaminated in order to continue providing a COVID-19 secure environment. By working with an experienced and trusted business service provider, you can be assured all specialist cleaning staff are well-trained in delivering services to contaminated areas and know-how to tackle even the toughest of situations.

4. We always use the right procedures and equipment to protect against COVID-19
By working with us you can always be assured that we will always take the necessary steps and work to the correct procedures to reduce the risk of infection in your business. Our C19 cleaning teams always use the correct PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) when performing dangerous procedures such as COVID-19 cleaning and decontamination, and are fully trained to ensure they always use the correct gloves, masks, and other protective clothing to shield themselves against catching or further spreading infections from contaminated surfaces.
5. We can provide certificates and documentation to prove your business is COVID-19 Secure
A good facilities management company will always be able to provide clients with the correct cleaning records, documents, or certificates to prove the agreed services were delivered. Being able to provide the relevant documents to stakeholders or other interested parties to certify an area is C19 Secure not only ensures a clean environment for safe working, but it also allows businesses to provide a more consistent service by giving employees confidence in returning to work safely to help resume operations.
