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.

Industrial Vacuum Cleaners versus Domestic

Whilst others are equipped with automated and powerful mechanisms to take the guesswork out of the toughest of projects.

Various Industrial Carpet Cleaning Methods

Any environment you are working in should look sparkle clean. This is where your colleagues or visitors converge during or after having had a busy day. Therefore, you should beat all odds to ensure that the place is fresh and appealing. Your office or warehouse might be smart, your furniture might be glamorous, but visitors will still notice a worn out and dirty carpet.

Keeping your warehouse or office carpeting clean, will go a long way in maintaining your reputation. Maintaining your carpet helps extend its life. At CL Floorcare, we have you covered with amazing deals. We aim to provide services that exceed our customer’s expectation at an affordable cost.

The following are the most preferred carpet cleaning methods.

Hot water extraction: While using this method, hot water is forced into a carpet. The water is pumped under high pressure and then sucked using a vacuum. Van and truck mount extraction are the commonly known hot water extraction methods.

While using a truck mount machine, the machine heats water to high temperature and shoots the solutions to a carpet at high pressure. The hot water and chemicals break up dirt, pollens and bacteria in the carpet. The machine then draws the dirt and bacteria from the carpet. This is the most effective way to clean large commercial carpets.

Dry foam: using this method, shampoo is applied on a carpet and left to dry. The dried shampoo is then extracted using a vacuum. When using this method, you are not supposed to rinse the shampoo. According to experts, this method is not sufficient. It leaves sticky residue and dirt in your carpet.

Dry absorbent powder: while using this procedure, wet powder is spread on a carpet. Industrial carpet cleaners leaves the powder to dry and then sucks it using a vacuum. This method is easy and affordable. However, the vacuum leaves dry sponge particles on your carpet.

Bonnet cleaning: This method might be too hard on your carpet. Industrial carpet cleaners sets a piece of large cotton on your carpet and buffs the carpet using a floor polishing buffer machine. The rotating part of the machine absorbs dirt from your carpet. In layman’s language, the machine uses a cotton rag to mop and rub dust out of your carpet.
