Disinfectant wipes help keep high-touch surfaces hygienic and germ-free.
Cleaning surfaces may seem a straightforward task but there are right and wrong ways to do it. And with new standards of cleanliness and hygiene, today’s workplaces need to be sure staff are cleaning correctly.
According to Safe Work Australia, one crucial way of doing this is to wipe down surfaces regularly.
“At a minimum, frequently touched surfaces in workplaces should be cleaned and disinfected at least once daily,” the organisation says. “If your workplace has many customers or others entering, more frequent cleaning is recommended.”
But doing it correctly is just as vital as doing it at all, and that means a two-step process: first you should wipe the surface clean, removing as much of the dirt as possible, then you should disinfect it to kill the germs living on the surface.
While cleaning and disinfecting are terms often used interchangeably, in fact they are distinct steps, and won’t work nearly as effectively on their own.
For instance, simply cleaning a surface won’t eradicate bacteria, while only disinfecting a heavily soiled surface may not wipe out all the germs.
To make the task simple and effective, Premier’s Disinfectant Antibacterial Wipes should be used to completely kill any germs, after the surface has been cleaned. They can be used on any high-use office equipment and furniture such as computer touch screens, keyboards, printers, light switches, door handles, desktops and chairs, as well as toilets and sinks.
Premier Disinfectant Wipes are proven and tested to EN1276, are effective against Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus hirae and Salmonella enterica, leaving us safe, germ-free surfaces.
