High touch surface cleaning is when you clean frequently touched areas, also called touchpoints, to prevent illnesses from spreading in your commercial building. Let’s go over what these points are and what cleaning services they need.

What does high touch mean? A high touch area is a surface that’s used often throughout the day. Examples include:
- Light switches
- Faucets and sinks
- Elevator buttons
These surfaces need touchpoint cleaning services because frequent contact makes them high-risk areas for the spread of diseases and viruses like the flu and COVID-19.
Touch point cleaning works in two stages: cleaning and disinfection. First, a commercial cleaner wipes down the high-touch surface to eliminate dirt, grime, or other contaminants. Next, they use a microfiber cloth to apply disinfectant to the surface. The disinfectant removes bacteria, viruses, and other germs so they don’t spread illnesses.
You may think rags, sponges, and other typical cleaning tools disinfect high touch surfaces effectively, but they don’t. Instead, they often move the bacteria and viruses around on the high touch point. Microfiber cloths remove these contaminants more effectively. Once you put the disinfectant on the cloth, wipe the surface thoroughly to remove the bacteria and viruses before they make your employees and visitors sick.
High touch point cleaning is important because it’s a straightforward way to keep your employees and visitors safe and healthy, removing germs from commonly used surfaces before they can spread to the people in your building. More attention has been paid to high touch cleaning since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it has always been a critical cleaning service for commercial facilities.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides guidelines for high touch surface cleaning. It’s a good idea to consult these before you talk to your commercial cleaning partner about this service, so you know whether your commercial cleaning company is following the guidelines to make your office a safer and healthier place.
