If COVID19 has provided us with anything, it has been insight.
Insight into how we can adapt quicker than ever to change and protect our businesses through even the worst of circumstances.
Currently, commercial premises are operating at full capacity when it comes to cleaning as they do everything possible to stop or indeed, reduce the spread of Coronavirus.
Spaces now require deep regularly cleans with every surface, door handle, handrail, floor, doormat, and more needing to be properly disinfected.
This has undoubtedly placed a significant strain on internal cleaning staff and contractors.
However, with the spread of Coronavirus showing no signs of slowing down, what does the pandemic mean for the future of commercial cleaning services, commercial contracts, and cleaning operatives?
This post looks at some of our thoughts for the future and what businesses can begin to expect to see.
Knowing our cleaning regimes inside and out
The pandemic has brought us much closer to cleaning!
By this, we mean we understand how important it is for businesses to reassure their teams that they are carrying out everything possible to keep everyone safe and combat the spread.
This means knowing precisely what cleaning is carried out.
In the beginning, as long as your premises looked clean on the surface, that was probably good enough.
With cleaning carried out as a routine that we may not have paid much attention to, especially not wondering how many germs were lingering on a door handle.
Today, it’s vital that all businesses are COVID secure. This means scheduling deep cleans regularly and employing professional agency cleaners.
Therefore, it has become essential to establish a cleaning procedure that you know inside and out, ensuring all surfaces meet the disinfected high standards and requirements. (For this, you will require a strong disinfectant chemical that kills up to 99.9% of viruses and germs, the right equipment, and tools for the job, and trained and experienced staff who can use the equipment!)
An industry coming together
The commercial cleaning sector has often been thought of as very fragmented and, in most cases, unable to deal with a quick increase in demand.
Plus, not everyone is a cleaner. Professionals ensure the right products and the right tools are used for the job at hand – can you always guarantee this when you hire cleaning operatives quickly from generic recruitment agencies?
COVID19 has now changed all of this.
Now, much more stringent checks are made when hiring cleaning staff. Background checks, experience, certification, etc. are all checked and vetted.
Businesses will now form much stronger relationships with their cleaning agency, who can show them directly just how good they are.

Recognised as an essential service
Professional cleaning services are now considered an essential service to businesses, and fortunately, looking to the future, this is set to continue.
Cleaning is now seen as an investment—an investment into the health of your business and employees.
Because of this, cleaning packages are now being increased with cost no longer being the primary driver for how often a business should be carrying out a clean. Employees and business needs are now at the forefront of this decision making.
It’s not just about cleaning anymore…
…premises need to be hygienically sanitised too!
Professional cleaners will know the difference and be able to provide businesses with exactly what they’re looking for.
Professionals know about health and safety. They know how to prevent and avoid cross-contamination, stopping the spread of germs and bacteria.
At Clear Choice, we’ve trained our teams in additional sanitisation techniques, developing robust processes to help limit all risks and provide part-time cleaning staff when you need them most.
We’ll see a raising in standards in professionalism.
As well as expecting the sparkle and shine, cleaning now focuses on how best to keep us healthy and safe. In this sense, cleaning has never had such a high profile, and trust us when we say no longer can just anyone turn their hand at cleaning without prior experience and full training.
At Clear Choice, we have been providing cleaning staff around the clock to help keep businesses operational and staff safe.
