Places or products that are frequently utilised, moved, or ‘touched’ are known as general touch points. Certain touch points are much more likely to carry germs than some other parts of your office, therefore they must be well cleansed and sterilised.
When you hire cleaning staff on a regular basis, these contacts must be cleansed on a regular basis. We recommend cleaning these products every 2-3 hours in addition to your usual cleaning.

FOR CLEANING YOUR COMMON TOUCH POINTS, THE KLEEN TEAM RECOMMENDS THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURE:
Before sanitising, make sure everything is clean. Cleansing eliminates germs and bacteria from places or items and aids in the prevention and control of infection spreading more effectively than disinfection alone.
- The things listed above should be disinfected on a regular basis at your workplace or office. Depending on the size of the area and employees available for disinfection, all recognised touchpoint objects should be disinfected at least every 2-3 hours.
- Use checklists to track compliance and disinfecting on a regular basis.
KEY TOUCH POINTS SANITISING;
Wear personal protective clothing (PPE) which has been recognised (i.e., latex or nitrile gloves).
- Use a clean, dry microfiber cloth to apply the sanitiser for the first time. When cleaning the touch points mentioned above, make sure the cloth is wet with disinfection. As required, apply the sanitiser to the cloth.
- Check to see if the area to be sanitised is clean. A clearly filthy area must not be disinfected.
- Apply the sanitiser to the area and allow it to dry to form a noticeable film.
- Allow enough time for the area to dry naturally. It will ensure that the sanitiser has the necessary contact time (one minute).
- Apply the sanitiser again between areas to make the cloth moist.
- Cloths should be replaced every day or as soon after they become noticeably filthy.
