Cleaning Method for the Prevention of Coronavirus COVID-19

Micro fibre Cloths

  • Only use the correct colour micro fibre cloth for the area being cleaned. See Colour Coded Cleaning chart located in the H&S COSHH file on each site.

RED……………..Bathrooms, toilets, washrooms, showers areas

BLUE……………General offices, meeting rooms, reception areas

GREEN…………Kitchen, food prep/ service areas

YELLOW………High risk

  • To make the most of micro fibre cleaning cloths, use only one section of the cloth at a time. So, fold the cloth into half, then in half again. This will give you eight surfaces for cleaning—four on each side.
  • For dusting, leave the cloth dry. For other chores, dampen the cloth, and then wipe surfaces clean.
  • When the cloth starts to leave behind dirt or lint, or if you’ve used it a few minutes, re-fold to a fresh section. Continue until the entire cloth has been used or the cleaning chore is complete.
  • To be used on all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace, such as desks, countertops, handrails, switches and door handles, etc. that have a high-risk transmission point.
  • Dirty cloths are to be bagged and washed according to the manufacturers instructions. No softener or tumble dryer sheets are to used.

On Each Visit

Antibacterial Wipes

  • Are to be used on all frequently touched surfaces, such as desks, counters, door handles, light switches, kitchen appliances, disposable antibacterial wipes, and a hard surface disinfectant solution designed for eliminating bacteria. Dispose of used wipes as directed by the client or building management.
  • Check that disposable antibacterial surface disinfectant wipes are available for the clients’ employees to use during the day on commonly touched surfaces for example, doorknobs, keyboards, remote controls, and desks.

Hand Sanitizers

  • Replenish as required any freestanding hand sanitizer gels that have been placed in strategic areas such as reception, break out areas, kitchens etc.

Antibacterial liquid soap

  • Hand soap in toilets and kitchens to be replenished with antibacterial products only, unless specifically instructed by the client.
