When you run a great business, you attract more people and potential customers. In doing so, you also run the risk of bringing germs into your business on a daily basis. Germs normally carry illnesses such as colds, flu, and stomach bugs. They can also live on surfaces for hours. To prevent the spread of germs, it is essential to wipe down any items that have been used on a daily basis. Facilities such as offices, daycares, and gyms are the most vulnerable to germs.
Offices and Schools
Offices, schools, and daycares have a lot of similarities. When one person, or child, is sick, they touch everything on their desk and may unknowingly cause the spread of germs by touching other areas and items that people frequently use. So imagine an office or a class with multiple persons reusing the same items that have not been disinfected yet. Children in a school or daycare environment are more prone to touching their faces, as well as other children. Not only will this make people sick, but it could reduce attendance at school and work.
A gym is not safe from the spread of germs, either. With so many people coming in at various times, people are always using gym equipment. When people do not follow the rules to wipe down gym equipment, this is when germs spread the fastest through touch. Because of excessive sweating, germs spread not just on gym equipment, but also into the locker room, which can cause athlete’s foot.
The quarantine has limited most gym facilities from opening and gym members from going to the gym. However, there is no better time than right now to thoroughly disinfect your gym facility. Not only will you be proud that you have used this time wisely, but you will be ahead of the game once the quarantine is lifted.
