Slips and falls can range from mild inconveniences to serious hazards to health and physical wellbeing. Because of this, it is very important to limit risks wherever possible and to keep these risks in mind during and after a cleaning protocol is completed.

Slipping Hazards

In the most basic of terms, slips happen when there is a lack of friction between your shoes and the floor. Typically, this is due to a wet or oily surface from a spill, recent cleaning, or rainwater that’s been tracked in from outside. While it may sound obvious, slips are a very real hazard in the workplace and retail settings. Regency Cleaning has robust systems in place to minimize the risk of slips and falls. From proper signage to reliable reporting programs, we can help ensure the safety of your workers and clients. We employ a team of day patrol staff that keep a keen eye out in order to record the occurrence and frequency of any slipping or tripping hazards that may exist. This allows us to respond quickly and adjust our protocols where needed the most.

Proper Cleaning and Maintenance

A poorly maintained facility can also prove to be hazardous when it comes to avoiding slips and falls. When a space has been vacant for a long time, hazards may appear but they fail to become noticed. Regency Cleaning has a ton of experience in retail spaces and can identify potential hazards before they cause an accident. If your retail or commercial space has been empty or seen lower foot traffic, now might be the perfect time to look at getting a professional cleaning done.

The right cleaning staff works best when equipped with the right cleaning tools. Regency Cleaning’s technicians are trained to use powerful mechanized equipment, such as auto scrubbers and high-volume vacuums, in order to get the job done.
