5 Signs You Need Emergency Decontamination

This is a time of adjustment for everyone. As businesses continue to re-open and find their new normal, it’s crucial that your clients and employees enter into this new stage with comfort and confidence. But how do you know if your current cleaning practices are enough?

1. Your Office Has Shared, High-Touch Surfaces

Shared surfaces can end up passing germs from one person to another, so it’s important to know that these surfaces are being properly disinfected. If you’re at all unsure about some of the cleaning products you’ve been using, or if you are uncertain if your routine every-day cleaning has been enough, it may be time to contact a professional for a deep clean.

 High-Touch surfaces are surfaces that will be handled or shared between numerous people. Some of the surfaces the CDC has included as “high-touch” are:

  • Desks
  • Keyboards
  • Doorknobs
  • Light switches
  • Faucets
  • Countertops
  • Phones
  • Toilets

2. You Are Operating in Close Quarters

Social distancing in an office setting can be challenging, so it’s especially important that overall sanitation be a priority. As employees and clients transition back into a more traditional office setting, an emergency decontamination can get things off on the right foot and the right mentality. You’ll know you have a “clean slate” to start with, so the daily routine will be a little less stressful.

3. Your Cleaning Supplies Aren’t Quite Right

One of the most common issues we see at Aqueous Solutions are signs that an office, or an inexperienced company they’ve hired, have been using the wrong disinfectant or ratio in their cleaning formulas. Some signs that your cleaning ratio may be off are:

  • Damaged metal finishes
  • Leather cracking
  • Formica peeling

At Aqueous Solutions, we follow all of the guidelines set down by OSHA and the CDC. Our formulas kill 99.9% of germs and viruses quickly and effectively, and with nearly a decade of experience cleaning at the JFK Airport under USDA Supervision, we know the correct products and ratios to use on particular surfaces. If you are concerned that your office hasn’t been properly cleaned, it’s important to have that addressed as quickly as possible.

4. Your Office Has Had a Recent Case of COVID-19

In times like these, even a case of the sniffles can sound the alarms. That said, when your office has had a true or suspected case of COVID-19, proper decontamination becomes very important. An emergency decontamination can help prevent or combat the spread of COVID-19 in your office area.

Not only is this important to the health of your clients and employees, but it is also important for the well-being of your office as a whole. Preventing illness will help protect your office from unnecessary loss of time, or business.

5. You Have Some Nervous Clients or Employees

After having such a change and upset to daily life, it can be nerve-wracking for employees and clients as they try to resume life as it was. Effective, professional cleaning of your office spaces can help ease the concern of your clients or employees and show them their health is being taken seriously.
