What type of surface wipe is best for the job and will it harm my surfaces?
Having lived, and worked through the Covid-19 pandemic since early 2020, we are all now more conscious than ever of the need for hygiene in the workplace. Whether in an office environment, or a retail or hospitality setting, both staff and patrons want to know they are being protected by good hygiene practices.
High Traffic-High Risk
Obviously, the higher the volume of people passing through your premises, the higher the risk of infection/contamination to all. Sanitizing wipes in the workplace can help reduce exposure to germs and viruses that could otherwise cause extreme problems. Providing a suitable sanitizing wipe in your premises will both address the need to sanitize surfaces for hygiene reasons, and allow employees and patrons to feel comfortable that they are not at any risk of infection.
