Businesses are facing a very different landscape in the wake of COVID-19. Things that would have unthinkable just months ago are today a completely normal part of business practice. This has had a huge impact on companies and organisations across the country, from those that have had to close their premises completely in accordance with government rules, to those that are seeing an influx of business.

In any case, it is up to business leaders to consider the situation and look at what needs to be done in order for staff to be allowed to work, and anyone visiting the site being able to do so safely. And one of the key things to acknowledge is the importance of thorough cleaning and decontamination of premises on a regular basis.

Why is decontamination important?

It is well established that decontamination and ridding space of the virus is going to be an important way to combat it in both the short and long term. This means that whether you have a premise that is currently being used on a day-to-day basis or a presently-vacant property, it can be important to ensure that it is regularly cleaned and decontaminated.

For example, if your business has had a confirmed case of COVID-19 amongst staff, it is essential that you should have the whole premises decontaminated before other staff return to work. Failing to do so could put staff at risk of contracting the virus.

How does decontamination work?

Decontamination of a property goes before simple cleaning. Proper decontamination should include the use of dry steam technology or wet and dry fog systems using effective chemicals. This will differ depending on the needs of your property.

However, it is important to work with a company that can provide a high level of industrial-level cleaning.
