Importance of Cleaning High Touchpoints
If there is one thing the pandemic has taught us it is the importance of maintaining a clean and hygienic surrounding. Whether it is your home, office, or retail space, regular and thorough cleaning can help keep the environment safe to be in. Now, more than ever, people are looking at ways to deeply disinfect their homes and offices. High touchpoints (HTP) are those areas that are the most touched throughout the day.
Here are some reasons why cleaning high touch points is extremely important and effective in maintaining a clean surrounding:
Helps you stay safe
A high touchpoint in an office or retail space can spell trouble if it is not cleaned and disinfected regularly. High touch surfaces or points include:
- Remote controls
- Cell phones
- Light switches
- Fridge handle
- Communal surfaces like tables, chairs, and benches
Targeted cleaning of these can help prevent the spread of germs. While it is a good practice to use sanitizer before touching any of these high touch surfaces, regular and scheduled commercial cleaning service can help maintain hygiene. A professional cleaning company uses proper disinfectants and cleaning chemicals to maintain a clean space.
Cross-contamination is defined as the transfer of bacteria or other microorganisms from one substance to another. High-touch surfaces or points are easily contaminated because they are touched so frequently and commonly. Doorknobs, light switches, faucets, windows, and shared crockery are some of the most common ways cross-contamination can occur. Proper cleaning and disinfecting at the right time can stop the spread of germs in a workplace or store.
Helps maintains hygiene
Getting used to the new normal means keeping our workspace, homes, stores, or any other shared space sanitized and disinfected at all times. Early evidence suggests COVID-19 can live on objects and surfaces from a few hours to days. A critical level of cleaning is required to ensure the safety and protection of customers and employees. A professional cleaning company is always armed with the right tools and methods to provide the best service.
