Facility cleaning has been occurring since buildings have been built. The level of required cleaning depends on what the building is being used for. By way of example: A warehouse stocking insulation material may only require light cleaning on a bimonthly basis. Whereas a restaurant will require multiple light cleaning operations throughout the day, and a deep cleaning when the restaurant closes. Keeping records of cleaning operations is normally not required in most facilities, with the exception of healthcare facilities. The healthcare industry has adopted detailed cleaning checklists to keep facilities sterile. An improperly cleaned hospital room could result in serious infection, injury or even a death.
“Clean Your Facility As If It Were A Hospital”
WASH YOUR HANDS! We have to face the reality that novel coronavirus COVID-19 is here, and we have to do everything possible to flatten the curve and eventually win the war against this highly contagious virus. Because COVID-19 spreads so easily, housing facilities need to be extra cautious when doing routine cleanings. Essentially, they have to clean all common areas as if they were a hospital for the safety of the public.
As a manager of a housing facility, I’m sure you have received numerous questions about which areas in your facility have been cleaned and how often they are being cleaned. The only problem is, unless that information is recorded in a place that is easily accessible, there is no easy way of knowing which areas have been cleaned and which ones haven’t in realtime!
