The Year Cleaning Moved to the Top of the Agenda

How to Plan for an Uncertain 2021

2020 was the year cleaning moved to the top of the agenda. As we move into the uncertain business landscape of 2021, one of the few certainties is that cleaning and hygiene practices will continue to play a major role in helping Essex businesses fight COVID-19. With that in mind, at Monthind we have spent many hours considering how we can use our 45 years of experience to enable businesses to deliver clean, safe working environments while remaining efficient in 2021.

Enhanced cleaning measures are essential – but so is keeping an eye on the financials

Balancing higher outgoings due to increased hygiene measures against lower, COVID-affected revenue stream is no easy task. Delivering a clean, safe environment is essential for businesses and organisations, both for hygiene purposes and to build staff and customer confidence, but maintaining heightened hygiene levels while remaining efficient is an additional challenge faced by many during these extended uncharted times.

Having seen this situation develop for many customers throughout the course of 2020, Monthind has developed a downloadable guide to help organisations strike that fine balance and deliver a safe, clean and hygienic business environment without taking both eyes off the budget sheet. In the guide, we have strived to provide answers to questions including; When, why and how often should you deep clean? What qualifies as ‘more frequent’ cleaning of washrooms and regular touch points? Do air conditioning and ventilation systems require more frequent cleaning during COVID-19? What does a COVID-19 response plan look like?

The effect of increased hygiene practices on business

We are looking for the answers to these questions and more, to learn more about the consequences hygiene issues are having on businesses during COVID-19. That’s why we are launching a study, The Impact of COVID-19 Cleaning and Hygiene Practices on Businesses.
