High Traffic During the Holiday Season
Air travel is nothing new, and people from around the world travel from one location to the next via airplanes. Every day, an airport experience millions of travelers going in and out of the facility. With high traffic volumes, it is inevitable for any area to become unclean and that is especially true with airports. With the holiday season on the way, the airport traffic will be even higher than the typical day, as people travel from all over to visit their friends and families. As a result of the high traffic, airports become a critical high-risk area. If the cleanliness of airports is not prioritized, they become a hub for the transmission of viruses like COVID-19 or the Flu – which may affect passengers and airport staff.
Create a Clean Path for Travelers
To ensure a cleaner and more comfortable environment, there are key areas in the airport that needs to be cleaned frequently in order to do so. As we slowly navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, travelers will be weary and more alert of their surroundings, which is why ongoing surface cleaning is helpful with reassuring them that they are in a safe and clean environment. In an airport, high risk areas like the bathroom, restaurants, ticket counters, doors, elevator buttons, and seating areas are areas that if not cleaned on a regular basis, can put a passenger at risk. To put into perspective, you want a bathroom to have clean toilets, stalls, sinks, floors and more while also having soap dispensers at the passenger’s reach to wash their hands before exiting to prevent the spread of any unwanted germs and bacteria.
Protect the Health and Safety of Travelers
Of course, with these risks and the aftermath of the pandemic, organizations like the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) and the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) are working together to ensure that airports meet the highest level of cleanliness and safety for passengers, according to an article by the Cleaning and Maintenance Management. But even with this it may not be enough. With airports all around the world, some may have trouble keeping up with regular cleaning, especially with enhanced methods. Even without these advanced methods, simply mopping floors, vacuuming carpets, and cleaning up trash airport will be a great help alongside the deep cleaning. Having a consistent cleaning schedule more than anything is more important than just ignoring the problem and not doing enough.
