4 Easy Ways of Ensuring Public Spaces are Clean
As some countries begin loosening restrictions in public spaces, that doesn’t mean we can stop being vigilant about cleanliness and disinfection. The CDC has released reopening guidelines for public spaces, but as we venture out into the world, how can average people go about ensuring that public spaces are clean?
Look for cleaners in the area
Places such as airports, bus terminals, and large office buildings generally have staff on call 24/7 to ensure high touch surfaces are being cleaned around the clock. Look around – are they actually cleaning or are they in a corner on their phones?
Ask about cleaning schedules or check to see if they’re posted
If businesses are taking cleaning and disinfection seriously, they shouldn’t have a problem disclosing what they’re doing to ensure the safety of the public. Look for cleaning teams sign-in sheets or simply ask someone who works in the public space if they have info on the last cleaning and what was done.
No one working in the area? Look for a QR code!
At Tulu, one of the main uses of our platform is our QR code decals. Anyone can scan the code and immediately be brought to an information page that gives detailed data on what was cleaned and when, shows videos of the spaces being cleaned, and even allows the public to leave feedback that’s then auto-populated on the cleaners’ checklists for next time. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
Invisible Ink test
As we saw from a recent expose at JFK Airport, investigators used invisible ink on high touch surfaces then came back a few days later to see if it had been wiped away. This one may be a little extreme but we’ve all got a lot of time on our hands and who didn’t love invisible ink as a kid?
