Most people focus on deep cleans and disinfection in the cold and wet months from September to March. While this is very important in the prevention of infectious respiratory diseases, you should not forget that summer sanitisation is also crucial. That goes for both your home and just about any commercial setting.
Deep Cleaning and Disinfection in Residential Properties
Summer may not be viruses’ favourite season, but surely bacteria and other germs thrive in warm temperatures with high humidity levels. It is important that homes are frequently cleaned and well sanitised to prevent infections and other unpleasant consequences for the household.
Even more important is the disinfection in big residential buildings such as blocks of flats and care homes. The elderly usually have a weakened immune system and are more susceptible to all sorts of diseases caused by tiny microorganisms.
Sanitisation in Schools
Britain is seeing a record number of secondary school pupils self-isolating because of COVID-19 this summer. The beginning of the new academic year is not too far away and schools must take all the necessary precautions to minimise the risk of viral transmissions. One of the top priorities for every educational setting should be organising deep cleaning and disinfection during the summer.
Viral infections are not the only health issue to be concerned about in school. Despite the absence of children during the summer months, dust and microbes continue to accumulate and spread within the premises. Proper sanitisation is crucial before the return of pupils in autumn.
Disinfection in Pubs, Bars, Cafes and Restaurants
Needless to say hospitality venues, where food and drinks are served, require immaculate hygiene and regular sanitisation. Most COVID restrictions are now lifted and people are going out more frequently. July and August are usually associated with partying and socialising in restaurants, cafes and bars for those who are not travelling abroad.
With the EURO 2020 and the Olympics loaded this summer, pubs are experiencing a big increase in customers, especially in comparison to the first half of the year, when most of them stayed closed. More people, means more spilled drinks, more mess and ever-increasing need of cleaning and disinfection.
For such commercial settings we always recommend EV dry steam cleaning systems. The main benefit of the tools and method is that it is 100% effective and requires virtually no drying time. The steam reaches up to 170ºC and combined with non-toxic virucidal or antibacterial products can kill just about any micro bug on the premises. What is more, the quick drying time allows uninterrupted business processes, happy staff and customers.
Office Disinfection in Summer
Many employees have returned to the offices from May even though the official government guidelines still recommend working from home. This recommendation is expected to change after 19th July when all lockdown restrictions will finally be lifted. Employers should expect their offices to become more lively again, but this means the entire space must be regularly cleaned and disinfected.
Office disinfection helps in the prevention of potential COVID-19 infections spread. However, there are more reasons why you should sanitise your workplace during summer.
A lot of people in the UK suffer from hay fever – an allergy to pollen. The symptoms are usually at their worst between May and August when the pollen count is really high. This year, there have been many reported cases of hay fever with symptoms worse than ever before.
Installing air purifiers or HEPA filters on the air vents in the office will help. But to ensure a pleasant and allergen-free environment for your workers, as an employer you should consider steam cleaning. It disinfects almost any type of surface, improves the quality of air and if done with an EV dry steam cleaner poses minimal disruption to the working process.
