The Why Behind Wipers

Here’s what your customers need to know about using wipers

Proper surface and equipment cleaning is fundamental to preventing the spread of illness. In a post-lockdown world, customers and employees alike are looking to regain confidence in public spaces. By offering hygienic maintenance solutions for high touch point surface areas, you are creating a safe solution for your customers!

Today, about 40% of workers say they often worry about getting sick as a result of poor hygiene. In fact, employers seeking to attract the next generation should be aware that 50% of those aged 16 to 25 say they consider hygiene concerns a top priority.

When to use wipers?

Wipers should be a key component of your towel and tissue assortment. They’re a disposable cleaning tool that’s stronger than a paper towel, making them ideal for cleaning and disinfecting where cross-contamination is a concern. To properly disinfect, use a wiper in conjunction with an alcohol-based disinfectant that has an alcohol content of at least a 70%.

A high touch surfaces cleaning routine should include:

  • Tables and seating
  • Door knobs and handles
  • Light switches
  • Toilets
  • Faucets
  • Sinks
  • Equipment panels
  • Workstations / desks
  • Chairs
  • Computers
  • Telephones
  • Elevator buttons

When cleaning and disinfecting, use one side of a wiper per surface to avoid cross-contamination. Adding wipers to your assortment is essential to helping your customers develop a cleaning plan that maintains sanitized and hygienic surfaces.
