How COVID-19 Has Led to a Cleaning Boom in Corporate Offices
October 14, 2020 by CRS Corporate Relocation SystemsCleaning
The cleaning industry has seen record-high spikes during the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to grow as cities reopen. Corporate office cleaners, housekeepers, pest control companies, and janitorial services are anticipating being fully booked through the rest of the year and into next year and are expanding the size of their staff by nearly double. Grocery stores, supermarkets, and department store shelves are being emptied as people scramble to find cleaning products for their homes and businesses.
The cleaning industry as we know it will continue to flourish as the best practices for health and cleanliness further develop, and here’s why.
The Demand for Clean Corporate Offices Has Never Been Greater
All establishments, from businesses and restaurants to office buildings and colleges, are experiencing a greater need for cleaning services and products than ever before. To keep their corporations alive, company executives are looking for ways to reassure workers and guests and are spending big bucks on health and safety protocols to keep everyone safe.
Corporate offices specifically face enormous challenges. They are transforming and redesigning their workspace to accommodate workers in a way that distances them, unraveling the shared and collaborative workspaces our society has pushed so hard for.
Unfortunately, distancing employees from one another won’t stop a pandemic. COVID-19 is strong and can live on certain surfaces for hours, sometimes for days, and it is still unknown how long it can persist in the air. Once-a-day cleanings in corporate offices aren’t going to cut it. It’s a job that needs to be handled by professional cleaning services.
Advanced Cleaning Technology for Corporate Office Cleanliness
Another challenge COVID-19 has created is the need for newer and advanced cleaning technologies. New gadgets are being promoted by cleaning companies and nationwide technology sellers. One of the most prominent high-tech cleaning technologies we’ve seen being used is the electrostatic sprayer. This device uses commercial-grade cleaning products and EPA-approved disinfectants to clean high-touch, visible, and harder to reach surfaces.
In addition, plexiglass barriers are being installed in corporate offices all throughout the U.S. They are designed to attach to existing future and workstations, providing an extra layer of protection without reducing visibility. While these are only a few measures, you can expect to see more state-of-the-art technologies aimed at making cleaning more effective and easier.
Cleaning Standards Are No Longer the Same in Corporate Offices
Inevitably, cleaning standards have shifted and will no longer be the same. There will be a constant need for a shift in standards to meet our ever-changing needs, and businesses will need to prove to their employees and customers that they are adapting to these new standards. The same goes for corporate office cleaning companies. They must show clients that they are leaders in the cleaning industry—not just making offices look organized but actually combatting hidden germs.
