Something we’ve been figuring out during the COVID-19 pandemic is that cleaning is never going to be quite the same again. Whenever people go anywhere now, they’re going to wonder whether the space is safe and clean enough for them to visit. Customers are now more cautious than they’ve ever been.
We also can’t forget that businesses are impacted by the changes the pandemic has brought because they have to be sure everything is kept clean, and more thorough cleaning procedures are needed these days. If a facility is not kept clean, customers won’t feel comfortable enough to visit their property. We’ll be covering the ways in which COVID-19 has changed how cleaning is being done.
COVID-19 Results in More Visible Cleaning Getting Done
Even before the days of COVID-19, cleaning was one of the most important procedures for businesses. The difference is that cleaning didn’t get as much acknowledgment before. Nowadays, people have more concerns about the cleanliness of businesses, so they like when they can witness cleaning being done, whether it’s on pieces of equipment, upholstery, or floors.
More Money and Time Allocated to Cleaning
There is an estimate by ISSA that businesses will raise their labor expenses by 50%, while around a 100-200% increase in expenses will occur for supplies and equipment.
Plenty of different restaurants and stores have reduced hours so that they have more time to get their facilities cleaned up. When more cleaning is being done, that means more cleaning staff is needed for these tasks, as well as additional equipment. Also, since public areas are given a lot of attention, there needs to be a sufficient amount of time to disinfect facilities.
COVID-19 Brought About New Innovations in Cleaning
In mere months, there have been huge breakthroughs in the realm of cleaning technology worldwide. It’s with these new technologies that businesses will be able to be more efficient in their cleaning procedures than ever before. This will help keep facilities as safe as possible, not just for customers, but for staff members as well. In turn, more people will come to visit these facilities.
