Preventive Health Protocol for the Workplace

When it comes to the workplace, you can’t take a reactive approach the health and well-being of your employees. Instead, you must put a preventive health protocol into place.

By doing so, you do your part to minimize the proliferation of cold and flu viruses. This keeps employees healthy, at work, and productive, benefiting both your business and employees alike.

But, what is a preventive health protocol? There are a few main elements you should know:

  • Customer Defense Zones – Properly stock points of entry, gather spaces, or personal hygiene areas and disinfect other recommended areas of the facility.
  • Target Areas – This includes the daily sanitizing of common surfaces and daily disinfection of key surfaces throughout your workplace.
  • Potential Additions – Steam cleaning, machine scrubbing, detail washing, sanitation, and carpet cleaning are important additions worth considering.

At Commercial Cleaning Experts, we follow the above protocol rigorously for our proactive clients. By doing so, we do our part to maintain the health, cleanliness, and well-being of your staff while fostering a productive workplace environment.

What Does it Mean to Use “Green Seal” Cleaning Products?

The movement to using non-toxic, Green Seal cleaning products is one that has been welcomed by homeowners and businesses alike. However, not all green products come with the Green Seal of approval.

But, what does it mean when products have the Green Seal Certification?

Green Seal is a non-profit organization that reviews and certifies a wide range of products if they meet the sustainability standards set forth by the organization. This provides safeguards for consumers shopping for products because they can trust the Green Seal Certification to ensure they’re purchasing environmentally responsible products.

The Certification covers a range of standards, including performance, health, and environmental criteria. As such, you can have peace of mind purchasing products understanding that they meet the rigorous standards you expect.

At Commercial Cleaning Experts, we only use certified Green Seal cleaning products. As such, along with our other elements of healthy buildings, you can have confidence knowing your workplace is cleaned with non-toxic materials, fostering a safe, healthy, and productive environment for your staff.
