How to Disinfect Your Bank and Keep It Germ-Free During COVID-19

While many businesses such as banks, restaurants, and more are now allowed to open, various organizations have had to rethink their cleaning and disinfecting strategies to ensure that their employees and customers stay safe. Although for some people, the worst of the pandemic seems to be over, it is still the responsibility of business owners to ensure the health safety of their workers and customers.

For banks especially, it is common to have a commercial disinfecting company like SafeFromSpread come to do thorough disinfection of all your high-contact surfaces and other areas at high risk of harboring an infection. Certain places in the bank require frequent and consistent disinfection. However, it may be too expensive or inconvenient to have a commercial disinfecting company disinfect such areas every day of the week.

To help you maintain good hygiene in your bank, we came up with a checklist that includes the various areas that should be frequently disinfected and cleaned and how often the process should be done.
