High touch point (HTP) cleaning has been a major focus since the start of the pandemic. Covid-19 has made us realize that frequent hand washing, cleaning, and sanitizing/disinfecting of surfaces is necessary to help prevent illness. With so many surfaces, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. Our cleaning experts have put together a list of high touch points to help you create a clean, germ-free Vancouver office or commercial space.

High Touch Point Cleaning

 Areas that are frequently touched by hands are known as high touch points. These surfaces include handrails, elevator buttons, bathroom faucets, doorknobs, light switches, kitchen appliances, and other frequently touched surfaces. High touch points easily spread viruses from person-to-person in high traffic areas. Hand washing, sanitizing, and persistent cleaning can help stop the spread of germs and keep illness away.

How to Clean High Touch Points

Cleaning should be frequent and thorough in high touch point areas. Begin cleaning by putting on gloves and wipe down high touch points to remove dust, dirt, and debris. Next, wipe the same surfaces with hot, soapy water or multi-purpose cleaner. The final step is to wipe surfaces with a health-approved disinfectant. Never reuse cleaning gloves, as they can carry bacteria and germs. On top of cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing, it is crucial to hire a Vancouver office cleaning company for deep cleaning and office sanitization/disinfection services.

Cleaning After A Covid-19 Outbreak

 Covid-19 cases are decreasing rapidly; however, viral spread is still a common concern in high traffic offices and commercial spaces. Professional office cleaning services are necessary when there is a Covid-19 outbreak, as full PPE, health-approved disinfectants/sanitizers, and training is imperative to ensure  surfaces are free of germs. Although cleaning and disinfecting is highly effective, Electrostatic Disinfection or ULV Fogging is suggested to further reduce risk. By missing a small surface area, there is a greater chance of spreading germs and causing illness.
