Cleaning and Disinfecting Hygiene Screens

As the COVID-19 health crisis continues to unfold, businesses must continue practicing social distancing and thorough cleaning regiments to ensure the safety of staff and customers. One of the most effective ways to protect staff and customers is through installing acrylic hygiene screens, these physical barriers help enormously with preventing transmission in businesses.

Frequently and correctly sanitizing protection equipment such as acrylic hygiene screens is as essential to adequate protection against COVID-19 as the screens themselves. The cleaning of acrylic screens for supermarkets and other retail businesses should be done by following health advice and standards. In busy businesses with a frequent flow of customers, it is recommended to clean and disinfect hygiene screens and other surfaces multiple times per day. Smaller businesses or ones with minimal customer flow may reduce cleaning frequency.

Disinfecting surfaces such as hygiene screens is different from cleaning; cleaning is performed using soaps or detergents to physically remove dirt and other contaminants while disinfecting uses chemicals such as alcohol, bleach, and quaternary ammonium compounds to kill bacterial or viral contaminants. Both cleaning and disinfection must be performed on hygiene screens and other work surfaces to adequately control the spread of COVID 19.
