As we ease out of the national lockdown, businesses are looking to get employees back to work and with this comes new safety measures and guidelines. Making employees and clients feel safe in the workplace is a top priority if we want to put this past year behind us, however maintaining the new standard of hygiene will take a toll on businesses in terms of cost and time, will they be able to keep up?
‘Small business owners are spending the equivalent of an entire working day a month doing extra cleaning in their premises in the wake of Covid-19, a study has found’, in addition to this, businesses are spending £150 a month on cleaning products, £57 more than before the pandemic. Spending this much time and money on cleaning will add up over the next few months, so a way to maintain a high level of sanitisation that allows businesses to free up their time to focus on the important things is needed.
UV sterilisation has been used in water treatment for over 75 years and is used in hospitals for decades to sterilise medical equipment. In light of current events, UV products are also being installed in places like St Pancras station and Heathrow airport to keep travellers safe. UV-C light kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses in the air and on surfaces so businesses of any and every industry can make use of the various products out there. As you can see in the video above, at UV Tech-Hygienics we have a wide range of products that target different areas of a building including shared touchpoints with a higher risk of disease transmission and air sterilisation products (UV-C is the only dry cleaning method that kills bacteria and virus in the air). Using UV-C as part of your cleaning regime would shave time and money off your daily business operations and works as a dry, environmentally friendly and above all effective method of sterilisation.
