Ready Your Workplace for COVID-19 with Deep Cleaning


Dusting and wiping down surfaces at the end of the night is no longer enough to keep your workplace safe from viruses and harmful bacteria. That’s why TMT Central London recommends regular COVID-19 deep cleaning to limit the virus’s spread.

Read on to learn more about deep cleaning, and how to limit COVID-19’s spread around work.

What is deep cleaning? -

Deep cleaning refers to thoroughly disinfecting and sanitising everything in the room, including electronics and the air. Before the COVID-19 outbreak, we mostly used deep cleaning in hospitals and laboratories.

Nowadays, everyone stands to benefit from deep cleaning because it limits the spread of COVID-19. Our London cleaning team uses a disinfect fog to mist up the room, achieving full coverage. It works similarly to fumigation, but the fog is entirely safe and non-toxic. That’s because the fog contains ionised hydrogen peroxide, which kills spores, viruses and bacteria.

Benefits of deep cleaning: -

  1. Much more effective than manual cleaning
  2. Kills 99.9% of viruses in the treated room
  3. Can clean electronics and furniture within the room without causing damage
  4. Eco-friendly because by-products are limited to oxygen and hydrogen
  5. Bacteria and viruses are not resistant to our cleaning solutions
  6. Safe, non-toxic and non-corrosive

Workplaces that can benefit the most from regular COVID-19 deep cleaning are: –

  1. Offices
  2. Retail spaces, especially hairdressers and nail salons
  3. Waiting rooms
  4. Restaurant kitchens
  5. Movie theatres

Steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace

Everyone at work has a role to play in keeping your workplace COVID-free. We’ve put together 6 tips to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in the office.

1. Clean often touched surfaces in your work area at least twice a day.

Some examples are:

  1. Desks and workstations
  2. Keyboards, mice, screens and headphones
  3. Doors, windows, soap dispensers, water coolers and light switches
  4. All kitchen appliances, especially the microwave, fridge and kettle
  5. Shared work equipment including the printer and any tools, vehicles or delivery boxes
  6. All mail coming in or shipping out

2. Promote regular hand-washing employees, contractors, and customers.

3. Place hand sanitiser sanitiser throughout the building, especially in kitchens, entrances and outside the bathrooms.

4. Avoid touching your face. Touching your face gives the viruses and bacteria on our hands an express route into our bodies. If you’re struggling to stop touching your face, take a look at this BBC article.

5. Wear a mask at all times to reduce the risk of unknowingly spreading the virus.

6. Stay home from work if you have a mild cough or a low fever (37.3°C or higher).
