Is Your Office Prepped for Proper Hygiene?



23 May 2019

Every now and again it is good for business owners to stop and take stock of those essential, though often unseen tasks in their workplace. Possibly most important of these, are the efforts taken to maintain a hygienic environment.

This, naturally, requires you to keep a finger on the pulse of your hygiene consumables to ensure that you have what you need to keep your working environment free from harmful bacteria; taking stock, making sure you have enough of the right products, and also seeing to it that you have a little extra so that you don’t ever run out.

To help you ensure that you don’t forget about anything, here are some of the most important office cleaning supplies that you should always have on hand.

Brush-ware and Cleaning

Standard everyday cleaning requires certain tools, this is as true for offices as it is for factories, homes and any other environment where people tend to congregate. Requirements for these types of products are pretty straightforward; dust-pans, mops, brooms and feather dusters are a must; as are hygienic wipes such as Kimcloth rolls.

Detergents and Cleaning Products

Even with the above tools, you will still need cleaning products and detergents to ensure that your working environment is free of bacteria.

This sort of hygiene equipment should include bleach, toilet-bowl cleaner, scouring cream, disinfectants and even dish-washing liquid (which can be easy to overlook).

Where floor hygiene is concerned, floor pads and non-ammoniated strippers are also a good idea.

Soaps and Paper Products

Where hygiene consumables are concerned, you also need to ensure that the employees in your workplace have what they need to maintain their own, personal hygiene. Dispensers with Hand soap, hand sanitisers and seat sanitisers provide the optimal solutions in order to ensure a hygienic environment.

In addition, paper towels and toilet paper will need to be available.
