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.

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 »

Why have Regular Servicing on Your Cleaning Machine

Why have Regular Servicing on Your Cleaning Machine

For your industrial cleaning machine to work effectively and give you long-term service, keep on top of the servicing. Normally, the number of times to do the servicing depends on how frequent you use the cleaning equipment. Consequently, cleaning machines that are used often should be serviced more regularly than those that are less used.

Hiring a floor cleaning machine and servicing firm like CL Floorcare, is important if you want the best cleaning service. Overall, you stand to gain the following benefits when having your floor machine serviced by us:

Avoid Unnecessary Repair Costs

Whether you have an industrial floor cleaning machine problem or pressure washer repair, we do it. Moreover, as a Karcher centre any Karcher pressure washer repair is welcome at our approved centre. Regular servicing of your industrial floor cleaning machine protects you from paying extra or unnecessary costs. The costs can be seen as immediate or long-term. On an immediate basis, you get to avoid unnecessary expenditure related to repairs or replacement of parts. Most of the parts if checked early get to give you long-term service. On the long-term basis, servicing your cleaning equipment protects you from having to replace the whole equipment. Buying new equipment after a short-term use is not desirable. Therefore, when you consult C L Floorcare, if repairs need to be done, you get to spend less before the problems get worse.

Overall Assessment of Cleaning Machine Performance

Your floor cleaner machine does not need to break down or look worn out before you get it fixed. Moreover, regular servicing ensures that the machine is checked effectively, part by part. Cleanliness is a priority for most people, so having the whole machine regularly serviced and checked, makes good sense. Therefore, this ensures that the levels of hygiene on your floor are maintained. Additionally, if its lubrication that is needed or changing the coolant, the expert will advise you accordingly.

For Operation Safety

A properly serviced floor cleaning machine gives you the benefit of doubt with respect to the usage safety. A machine that is poor in condition is a danger to you and can result in accidents. When your machine is serviced regularly, our engineers are able to fix possible pending problems. Consequently, this ensures you can work securely. For example, parts like brakes, ignition switch, the motor, and filers need to be checked on a regular basis.

After sales care

After buying your floor cleaning machine, you are mandated to keep it in a good working condition. The best way to do it is to have it regularly serviced and inspected. Consequently, this will save you from spending money on unforseen repairs and replacement parts. In the long run, servicing the floor machine makes sense by protecting your investment.
