Q: How does the routine cleaning for our strata property change because of COVID-19?

A: The COVID-19 outbreak requires effective cleaning techniques far beyond a standard clean, so here’s what to consider to protect your strata community:

  • Refer to the Australian Government Department of Health Cleaning guide
  • Request the preventative measures your cleaner is taking – it’s not enough to just wear a mask or gloves
  • Request a Safe Work Method Statement, which now include additional processes including Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and social distancing measures
  • The cleaner must disinfect equipment and materials between jobs, and before it is brought on-site
  • The cleaner must use hand sanitizer before arrival, also make hand sanitizer available on arrival as a precaution
  • Ask them to disinfect door handles and other surfaces after they have completed work
  • For common area cleaning, increase the number of cleans, length of clean, and what gets cleaned.
