Where do We Go From Here? How COVID-19 Has Changed the Needs in Commercial Cleaning and Janitorial Services Forever

One thing that the COVID-19 Pandemic has shown us is just how important it is to keep our offices and businesses clean and healthy. During this pandemic, there has been an increased demand and higher standards for commercial cleaning and janitorial services. But even with a light at the end of the tunnel, we are all forever changed, including how we will view cleanliness in the future.

Continued High Demand

With Coronavirus being more infectious than the common flu, we saw an increased demand for commercial cleaning and janitorial services. We don’t expect this to end once a vaccine becomes more wide-spread and we can begin to return to a “normal” life. That is because normal has changed. We are now more aware of germs as well as viruses, and how they both spread. With this knowledge, many now realize just how important it is to keep our employees, staff, clients and patrons healthy by keeping our offices and shops clean on a more regular basis. Not only can it help to reduce the spread of the common flu and cold, but it can also help to limit the spread of any new viruses. 

High Standards Will Stick Around

Scientists say that another pandemic could happen at any time. Now that we have experienced one on a large scale here in the U.S., many businesses and shops want to keep up with the high standard of cleaning to help slow the spread of any future viruses. These high standards have the added benefit of limiting the spread of common illnesses like the cold and flu as well. By stopping or limiting the spread of these common illnesses, you can reduce time that employees are out sick and even increase productivity because they are feeling well and healthy. 

New Cleaning Technology Helps Going Forward

The increased demand for professional cleaning services and the high standards that came with that demand helped result in new cleaning technology. These more effective systems can clean faster and provide more complete and consistent coverage even though they use less cleaning solution! This has revolutionized the commercial cleaning profession forever, allowing us to keep up with the high demand and meet those high cleanliness standards, even after this pandemic is over.
