Flu Season is Upon Us

With flu season beginning, there are crucial extra steps to take to lessen the risk of spreading sickness. Working in a commercial building means it’s easy for a group of people to get sick at once.

  • Encourage the Use of Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer is a quick and easy way to ensure clean hands are used on work phones, keyboards, mouses, and even shaking hands with others. High-touch areas are less likely to spread sicknesses if there are no germs on them to spread.

  • Routinely Wipe Down Desktops, Phones, and Door Handles

Desks, phones, and door handles are all extremely high-touch areas. This means people constantly touch these areas and, with phones, people put them on their faces and close to their mouths. This is a sure way to get sick during flu season. Routinely wipe down these areas after use to ensure proper hygiene and courtesy during flu season.

  • Ask Employees to Bring Their Own Water Bottle Instead of Using a Water Fountain

Water fountains are deceivingly good at seeming germ-free. However, the issue lies with the button to press for water. These buttons hold a lot of germs from the number of people who use the fountain. Consider asking your employees to bring a water bottle instead of using the fountain, in addition to cleaning the water fountain for those who do use it.

  • Hire a Professional Commercial Cleaning Company
