Flu Season Tips for a Germ-Free Workplace

Flu season its on its way. Recent reports say that employees will miss 75 million days this flu season. Absenteeism is costs businesses roughly $660 per employee each year. It is critical to implement daily or weekly professional cleaning services to keep employees healthy and your business successful.

Flu season is relentless, so review the tips below for a germ-free workplace:

  • Disinfect hard surfaces. Viruses and bacteria can remain on hard surfaces for up to 18 hours. Regularly disinfect hard surfaces such as door handles, desks, keyboards, and phones.
  • Sanitize restrooms. The buildup of harmful germs in restrooms can transfer to guests’ hands and cause illness. Implement a deep cleaning system that reaches all corners and sanitizes grout lines, walls, sinks, faucets, and commodes.
  • Mop the floors. Flooring can contain more than 2 million bacteria per square inch, making it one of the top germ hotspots. To reduce bacteria levels throughout the facility, use clean mops and tools specifically designed to prevent cross-contamination by separating dirty water from clean water.
  • Encourage hand washing. With more than 50,000 bacteria per square inch, hands are a playground for germs. Frequent hand washing is the most effective way of reducing the spread of illness among clients and employees.
