This week we take a moment to look at the beauty of hygiene and the difference it can make to overall cleanliness. In this blog, we’ll take you through some different expert hygiene practices and the impact these could have on the overall hygiene of your bathroom and workplace.
Daily cleaning plays an essential role in hygiene however many equipment and hygiene hotspots still develop a build up of bacteria despite consistent daily cleaning. This is where deep cleaning comes in. It is a specialised hygiene service that requires specific skills, formal application methods and the correct products to achieve hygienic results. It removes build up from the ‘hard to reach’ areas which are inaccessible to daily cleaners.
Here are four examples of how deep cleaning can improve your life.
Deep Cleaning Bathroom Treatment Before & After
The image on the left is a urinal before a professional deep clean. If you didn’t hold a mirror to the rim to reveal what lies underneath, you might think this urinal is clean, but in reality, it’s not. The image on the right is the same urinal after the deep clean service has been completed.
The difference between daily cleaning and deep cleaning can be compared to brushing your teeth daily vs a dental hygienist cleaning your teeth quarterly.
CaterClean Before & After
The image above is an example of equipment you would find in a commercial kitchen. Commercial kitchens are potentially a high risk when it comes to hygiene. Burnt-on fat and carbon not only reduce the performance of expensive kitchen equipment due to carbon build up, but can also pose significant health and hygiene risk. In addition, burnt-on grease and grime are almost impossible to remove without specialist preparations and equipment as seen on the image on the left.
Initial’s CaterClean service removes potentially harmful burnt-on carbon and fat deposits by professionally dismantling equipment where possible, deep cleaning, sanitising, reassembling and testing the equipment.
Bio Dosing Before & After
These are images of grease traps - a plumbing device used to catch grease and solids before they enter a wastewater disposal system - before and after undergoing Biodosing treatment, one doesn’t need to say much to see the difference.
Grease traps naturally build up organic matter which over time may lead to blockages overflows, offensive odour, risk of contamination and even costly flooding. Mechanical cleaning methods such as high pressure water jetting are often unsuitable and may cause bacterial contamination hence the need for biological dosing treatment.
Bio dosing is a treatment that pumps measured doses of microorganisms and enzymes into the sump which breaks it down to water and carbon dioxide. Read our blog “Fatberg Armageddon - a focus on grease traps” for the full scoop on maintaining grease traps.
Technology Hygiene (TechnoHygiene) Service
Ever wondered what is hiding under the keys of your keyboard? The keyboard above looks just like any other keyboard however did you know keyboards are an office hygiene hotspot they harbour dirt and bacteria that flies under the radar. The image below is an example of what could be lurking underneath those keys
Cleaning your IT equipment (including your computer, telephone and office printer) is important to limit the spread of harmful germs and to keep this expensive equipment in good working order.
I’m sure you’ll agree that a professional deep clean can make all the difference to your environment. It’s not only about having an environment that is aesthetically pleasing to the eye but realising that hygiene plays an important role in reducing absenteeism and increasing equipment longevity.
