Dissecting ‘Freedom Day’: How will cleaning standards change?

When it comes to cleaning and hygiene, will yesterday’s ‘Freedom Day’ see any changes to government guidelines on stringent cleaning protocols?

While certain businesses are being allowed to re-open fully (in particular, those that primarily operate in the night-time economy, like nightclubs and theatres) there are still rules and regulations in place that may see a more thorough approach to cleanliness is still being undertaken!

CL Floor Care examines some of these below, and how these new rules will undoubtedly impact cleaning practices:

–     The re-opening of nightclubs and other nighttime economy venues. Huzzah and hurrah! Grab your dancing shoes and get ready to boogie, as the long-awaiting re-opening of nightclubs is finally upon us, with some venues having re-opened from 12 am on Monday 19th July. But with no social distancing guidelines in place and no capacity limits, such venues will need to rigorously clean high traffic areas to ensure minimal business disruption from COVID-19 transmission.

–     The work from home guidance ‘no longer being necessary’. While ministers have called for clinically vulnerable people to be allowed to continue to work from home, many workers have been encouraged to work from the office from yesterday. An increase in office foot traffic will mean that touchpoints such as light switches, door handles and appliance handles will need to be cleaned more regularly.

–     The re-opening of high-capacity outdoor entertainment businesses, such as gigs and festivals. While outdoor meetings are inherently less risky than meeting indoors, due to COVID being less transmissible, large gatherings of people in any venue will leave a higher volume of rubbish. Such rubbish should be disposed of by operatives with the correct cleaning equipment and personal protective wear.

–     Face masks will no longer be mandatory in some settings. While many transport operators, supermarkets and hospitality businesses are advising continued use of face coverings, government rules suggest that they will no longer be a legal requirement (unless exempt). In support of maintaining cleanliness standards, businesses may want to consider installing plastic transparent screens where staff could interact with members of the public.

CL Floor Care has been committed to assisting individuals and organisations uphold their cleaning standards throughout the pandemic and will continue to do so beyond. We have a wide variety of cleaning machines that are optimised to clean the floors of businesses that are today now able to operate more freely (or indeed at all!). These include the SC351 and SC430 Pedestrian Scrubber Dryers and the Micro Ride-on SC2000, all suitable for cleaning dance floors, corridors, hallways, and other hard floor surfaces.

Re-opening your business post-lockdown
11 May

Re-opening your business post-lockdown

It is fair to say that the Coronavirus Pandemic has completely changed the landscape of how we view cleanliness. Now, in the workplace and when we visit external businesses, sanitising stations, social distancing markers and protective screens are commonplace. Though hygiene and remaining clean have always been crucial, ‘super cleanliness’ has become vital for a business to perform effectively and remain open. Cleaning should now concentrate beneath any surface-level grime that may have previously been the primary focus.

So, how might a business achieve this?

While the government is still touting the ‘stay local’ mantra, the re-opening of external hospitality and non-essential businesses will undoubtedly result in a surge of foot traffic in areas that will have previously locked down for months. This increase in use will only continue to boost footfall with the resumption of indoor hospitality on 17th May.

Here, CL Floor Care has put together a list of crucial recommended steps that re-opening businesses should look at taking:

A thorough risk assessment is required to safeguard customers and staff. The evaluation will need to consider all potential risks and identify how safeguarding of health will occur. The Food Safety Management System must also receive an update for food businesses, with any new procedures in mind.

Business premises will need to be adjusted to facilitate social distancing and include increased access to handwashing/sanitising stations. More intensive cleaning should also occur regularly, with high traffic surfaces like door handles, light switches, floors, and cash registers disinfected on a routine basis (at least twice a day). This frequency should increase if foot traffic increases.

Businesses should check registered waste carriers to ensure that services are running as frequently as required. Waste should be dealt with in a timely manner and not be permitted to build up.

Any items in the business that are considered ‘difficult to clean’ should be removed to make frequent cleaning more manageable.

The above set of principles should also be re-addressed if an individual with COVID-19 accesses the business. This includes the disposal of PPE equipment and the thorough disinfection of areas where the person may have passed through.

Why use a carpet cleaner… Hire/Buy we do both

Why use a carpet cleaner… Hire/Buy we do both

Ask your self, do you ?…..

Do you clean your carpets? not just hoovering, a proper deep clean using cleaning solutions and a carpet machine…. to remove them deep stains and dirt? 9/10 the answer would be no because you don’t own or think about hiring a cleaning machine.

With so many products, both hardware and solutions, it can be very daunting on what cleaning machine is best to go for, but we are here to help you make the right choice. We want to show you why you should buy/hire a carpet cleaner from us.

 

 

1 - Have your home looking brand sparkling new

 

There is nothing worse than walking into your home and seen a dull dirty and unkempt carpet. It doesn’t look the best and it can start to smell bad too. Buying/hiring a carpet cleaner like our Nilfisk E5300, can give your carpets that ‘fresh new’ look and feel again.

 

2 - Home comforts... is there anything better?

 

You know that feeling you get when you’ve de-cluttered your house from top to bottom. It feels new and homely. A clean carpet smelling fresh and looking clean does just that. Leaving that new house smell and feeling.

Once you have done your deep carpet clean, it’s up to you to take care of the vacuuming and keeping that smell and freshness alive as long as possible.

 

3- Extend the life of your carpet

 

Treat your carpet well, Through routine cleaning and maintenance, you can count on the life of your carpet being extended for any number of years depending on the quality and frequency of cleanings. The carpet in your home is equal if not more of an asset as the paint on your walls, due to the constant traffic.

 

4 - Odors and Smells

 

Carpets can start to smell over time. With regular traffic, all those crumbs, spills, dirt simply disappear into the pile of your carpet. By using our Viper CEX410 this can get rid of all the nasty smells which arise from a dirty carpet.

Things like pet stains and food spills as well as general wear and tear all add to the odor problem which occurs within the carpet. Scrubbing or off the shelf cleaning products will not get rid of these nasty smells. If anything if not done properly can make matters worse adding more damp to the service.

The majority of products you see in retail stores will only mask the smell for a very short period of time where as our carpet cleaners can eliminate them all together with a combination of high powered cleaning technology and we have some great C L Floorcare carpet chemical solutions.

 

5 - Now just Relax Knowing That Your Carpet are looking fresh and fine!

 

Now sit back and relax and look at the amazing job your carpet cleaner has done. There is nothing better than knowing that your home is now looking fresh and new.

COVID-19: Working from home during coronavirus

COVID-19: Working from home during coronavirus

COVID-19 – Tips for home working

 

At the moment it is very hard to escape any news about the coronavirus (COVID-19).

So Lets take a look at some tips and techniques for maximizing your productivity whilst working from home.

Working from home can be brilliant  –  Your own surroundings, pop the kettle on  whenever you want, got your own private bathroom. However, if you’re not used to working remotely then being away from your normal set up at the office can feel disconcerting. I wanted to share with you some tips I go by since working from home.

 

Tip 1: – Your work space

Whether you’re in the office or at home, having a desk set up that works for you is key.

Try to create a small area at home that’s a dedicated space for work. This will not only help you stay in the right frame of mind but will also create separation between your work and home life. Save your sofa, for the end of the day when you need to switch off and you can relax in your cosy space.

“I have made a dedicated work spot in my home – I have popped a desk at the back of my living room with a lovely looking chair, printer and my laptop. Once I am done working remotely I just leave that space and get back to home life.”

 

Tip 2: Have your own routine

Now that you’re not in the office, you may have to change your routine slightly.

Are you used to background noise, you may want to create a playlist you can work to. Getting up like you would do for a normal working day may help your frame of mind.

If you’re struggling to focus, why not try going for a walk clear your mind. get back and try again. Get yourself into a working mindset by sticking to as much of your normal routine as possible.

 

“At the moment I have my 3 year old daughter home with me whilst I work but I still try stick to the waking up having my breakfast (Do the mornings register – my daughters routine at the moment aha) Do my work and after dinner we have a walk to clear our minds and refresh us for the afternoon which is my 3rd tip.”

 

Tip 3: Move Around

At this time, we don’t know how long this pandemic will last and chances are we will be home longer than we want. So put some movement in your day, in the office you may be up and down getting what you need where as at home its all in your work space. So go for a walk on your dinner, Move around a bit clean the kitchen for 10 get some movement in.

Tip 4: Give yourself a break

When working from home, plan breaks into your day and don’t take lunch at your desk. If you can, a midday change of scenery and stretch of the legs can do wonders for your afternoon happiness levels.

Also have a set time you finish everyday too, turn off the laptop and turn off any work-related notifications outside of those hours.

 

Tip 5:  Be prepared for you and the kids

Lots of us are having to adjust to new routines right now like working parents, working from home whilst entertaining, feeding and teaching children takes juggling to a whole new level!

We will all be facing different challenges, with different ages of family member’s.  One thing that can help is to prepare is having a set of activities laid out so that you have a source of inspiration when the dreaded “I’m bored” words pop up.

“I’ve been dividing my time between the office and entertaining /learning my daughter over the past few weeks. I’m defiantly enjoying having my daughter as my work buddy.. Ben and Holly and chocolate ice lollies seem to do the trick when I have ran out of ideas to entertain whilst working!” Joe Wicks P.E class at am seems to help a great deal too”

 

 

 

If you’re not used to working from home, don’t be to hard on your self. It might take a few days for you to find your working rhythm, but it will happen so remember to be kind, stay home and stay safe.

Industrial Vacuum Cleaners versus Domestic
14 Mar

Industrial Vacuum Cleaners versus Domestic

It is always wise to choose the right tool for the task at hand. For example, a carpenter would hardly be able to construct a house with a hand saw alone. Consequently, industrial vacuum cleaners and domestic cleaners come in all shapes and sizes. Some are meant to address everyday tasks. Whilst others are equipped with automated and powerful mechanisms to take the guesswork out of the toughest of projects. Importantly, we can help you spot the main differences between domestic and industrial vacuum cleaners. Consequently, it’s a good idea to break this topic down into a few easily digestible sections. But what’s the difference? Read more »

Top 3 tips on a good winter weekend clean

Top 3 tips on a good winter weekend clean

Winter Weekend Clean

On weekends we love to have a good clean of our homes ready for the week to come so let’s help you enjoy a welcoming cosy home this winter, we have put together 3 top winter cleaning tips for you.

 

 

Entrance to winter

Entrance

 

I’m sure you all use the line “shoes off at the door!”

But this is one of the biggest culprit for bringing dirt into the house!

 

    Preparing your entrance with just a few items:

 

  • Outdoor door mat – By leaving a mat just outside your front door, people will give there shoes a quick shuffle before coming in. Preventing any leaves, chunks of mud ect from entering the house.

 

  • Indoor door mat – Just another shuffle once your in doesn’t hurt does it??….

 

  • Shoe rack – it can be a good idea to leave a shoe rack in the entrance. This way, when people come in they will be more inclined to remove their shoes and in turn keep your floors clean.

 

  •  Candle – Nothing says welcome than a lovely scented candle.

 

Moving on to the lounge – I call this my relaxing area

 

 

Vacuum – It can be easy to run the vacuum over the floor and call it a day, forgetting all the nooks and crannies! Once a month move the furniture and get the hoover under there, in between objects and on top of shelf’s.

And ay you may even find something you’ve lost ; £10 note, that necklace you could never find!

 

Lovely looking furniture

We spend the biggest percentage of our socializing time chilling on the sofa watching Corrie, Love Island… online shopping or having a good wine and chat to your friends/family.

 

So why do we we not clean the sofa as often as we should?

The main reason is we forget they need cleaning.

To keep your lounge all cosy, clean and inviting, it’s key to refresh the sofa, cushions.

 

Don’t be shy to give them cushions a good shake and chop, then a good tip to keep them smelling lovely and fresh, is by putting a dryer sheet in the pillow cases. This works a treat to keep them smelling fresh

 

 

The Heart Of The Home

 

People say money can’t buy happiness. They Lie. Money buys Coffee, Coffee makes Me Happy!

Let’s get the coffee pot out…

Keeping it looking clean and new for when your friends and family are around – Fill the pot with ice (about a quarter), squeeze in juice from a half of lemon, and drizzle two tablespoons of coarse salt. Keep swirling the pot for a few minutes and, when you finally rinse it, the water will wash away all the coffee traces.

“Leave everything a little better than you found it”….

The Kitchen sick.. Nothing feels as satisfying as a bright clean fresh smelling kitchen sick does it?

You need a few essentials to get your sink sparkling, 1. A scrub daddy sponge, 2. The pink stuff and some warm water. give your kitchen sick a clean over with some warm water, then scrub your sink with your scrub daddy and the pink stuff. Leave on for 2 minute and wipe clean.

Lastly to get that lovely welcoming scent fill the sink with some warm not boiling water and add a cap full of zoflora and give them sides a good wipe down.

 

 

Now you have peace of mind when it comes to spending time with friends and family, which is what matters the most.

Hmm…. Walk behind or ride on machines?
20 Feb

Hmm…. Walk behind or ride on machines?

Walk behind or Ride on’s?

 

Let’s take a look at both options so that even the most challenging of tasks can be completed within a timely fashion.

 

Ride-On Floor Cleaning Equipment…

If we were going to go for the ride-on sweeper or scrubber dryer it would be because we have a large facility to clean. Ride-on sweepers and scrubbers dryer allow operators to make the most of every shift – covering large areas with as little effort and less time.

Ride-on floor cleaning machines offer a 64 percent increase in productivity vs the walk-behind machines.

 

And of course another big thing when you look at machines to buy or hire. You look at the cost. Cost of a ride-on vs a walk-behind model can typically be recouped from labor savings in three to six months. If you would like more information on our prices when hiring or buying a cleaning machine. Please feel free to call us and we will be more than happy to help.

 

Walk-Behind Sweeper or Scrubber…

 

When looking at a walk behind you can see straight away that they are smaller than your ride on’s.

So If the area that is been maintained is smaller and/or includes narrow spaces, doorways or objects. A walk-behind machine would be the right choice, This sort of machine makes getting into them tight spaces easier. Walk-behind Scrubber dryer or sweeper machines are also better for areas with  ramps. Ride-on floor machines tend to be bulkier and therefore, they are not suited for dealing with cramped locations.  Go to our website for more information on our walk behind machines. We will not disappoint you on the quality and quantity of the equipment we have to offer.

When looking at sizes..

It is very important to take into consideration of the size of area you will be cleaning, as well as the internal capacity.

At CLFloorcare we do offer both ride on and walk behind machines.

 

If you would like to learn more about what we have to offer on these machines contact a customer service representative today.
