A clean bank is a well-liked bank and a safe bank. Running a bank that is hygienic, germ-free, and well-kept presents your financial institution as a pleasant, respectable place that people enjoy visiting. With so many people moving in and out of your building, and accessing ATMs and drive-thrus, throughout the day (and night), you need a smart cleaning plan in place. Let’s take a look at how to keep your bank germ-free with regular cleaning.
Keep Your Bank Germ-Free with Regular Cleaning
Cleaning your bank often and on a schedule is the best way to achieve a germ-free institution. Dust, dirt, and bacteria abound in a high-traffic location, which in turn can spread illness, causing employees to miss work. Regular cleanings can help avoid this.
Those regular bank cleanings typically include a number of tasks. Often, daily cleaning is the best type of schedule to adhere to for a financial institution. Dusting, polishing, vacuuming, sanitizing, disinfecting, and mopping should be incorporated into cleaning the entire bank space.
The areas of your bank that require regular cleaning are:
- Lobby and waiting area
- Teller areas
- Kitchen and break rooms
- Conference and meeting rooms
Why are Cleanliness and Hygiene Important for a Bank?
Preventing the spread of germs in a busy public space will benefit the bank’s business, staff, and visitors. Additionally, money can actually be quite dirty, and bring pathogens and microbes into the bank building. These pathogens can easily be spread around through normal daily activities.
Remember: not all grime is visible. Cleaning a bank with proper germ-killing solutions will provide a safe and healthy workspace. Plus, visitors will notice a sanitary, organized environment.
Clean, hygienic, germ-free banks are good for business; they smell nice, look professional, and shine where they should. Dirty, smudgy, musty financial institutions are off-putting, and can encourage people to bank elsewhere.
What to Know About Cleaning and Disinfecting a Bank
Cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing offer different levels of clean regardless of the workplace. Also, the specific space you are cleaning will dictate the degree of cleaning that’s necessary.
- Cleaning is good for bank areas that don’t involve high-touch areas like lighting, windows located away from the lobby, some furniture and flooring. Removing dirt, grime, and dust are the main goals in these areas.
- Disinfecting and sanitizing are implemented in areas where germs will linger and need deep cleaning to kill these germs and pathogens. Places like restrooms, kitchens, lobbies and entryways, plus surfaces that see a lot of hands and fingers need disinfecting and sanitizing.
Following this specific cleaning approach on a regular basis, and with the appropriate cleaning and disinfecting solutions, will keep your bank germ-free. If disinfecting needs to reach more spaces in your bank, consider electrostatic disinfecting for the best overall hygienic clean.
