Commercial Cleaning After COVID – Beyond Keeping Up Appearances

Commercial cleaning is more important than ever in the wake of the Coronavirus. Workplaces that are “high touch” areas need to be deep cleaned for the health and safety of workers, not just to look nice.

As of June 2020, Australia’s unemployment rate rose to over 7% thanks to the impact of the Coronavirus. But, even though the country has been through the worst of this pandemic, things are slowly starting to turn a corner.

People are getting back to work. Businesses are reopening. That’s enough reason to get people excited. But, at the same time, we are living in a “new normal,” and for most businesses, that means taking a new approach to commercial cleaning. 

Before the pandemic, most office cleaning typically centered around light vacuuming, scrubbing toilets, and mopping floors as necessary. Obviously, most places wanted to maintain a healthy and clean environment, but a lot of regularly cleaning was more about aesthetics than anything else. Now, thanks to the effects of COVID-19, that has changed. 

Heavy-Duty Cleaning for Health

While businesses initially declined in their needs after COVID-19 first hit, now that many are re-opening, they are taking extra measures to keep employees, customers, and clients as safe as possible. 

So, commercial cleaning is about so much more than aesthetics. At Cleaning Star, we’ve gone beyond the idea of cleanliness and are now focusing on health. After a typical cleaning service, we use a “fogger” or a spray to apply an anti-viral disinfectant into the air, before wiping it away. This process allows for everything within a building to get disinfected, from computer keyboards to pens on desks. 

For many businesses, it’s not easy to practice social distancing, like factories or commercial kitchens. So, cleanliness is more important than ever before. 

Why is Commercial Cleaning Important?


Aussie’s have experienced over 22,000 cases of this virus. All it takes is one positive case for a business to be shut down, and have to shutter for at least a few days or longer to make sure they aren’t actively transmitting the illness to customers or employees. No one wants to go through another lockdown. In fact, many small businesses wouldn’t be able to survive closing their doors yet again. 

 So, no matter what type of business you own, keeping things as clean and sanitised as possible is crucial. In many cases, doing the cleaning yourself or having someone on staff handle it just isn’t enough. Sanitation is more important than ever before. Having a commercial cleaning crew with experience in these areas come in is the best way to ensure the health and safety of everyone who enters your building. 

The country, as a whole, might be starting to turn a corner. But, this is an era of a new normal. No one can take their eyes off the goal of getting rid of the virus completely. In order to do that and to slow the spread indefinitely, businesses across the country need to be held to a higher standard of clean.
