London – the cultural, financial and economic capital of the world. A cosmopolitan of endless opportunities and extraordinary sights and places. One may possibly eat, drink, buy and see absolutely anything in London. It is the home of Her Majesty the Queen. It is also where another 8 539 000 people live, work and spend their lifetime being proud Londoners. In addition, London is the most popular tourist destination in the whole world, attracting around 30 million visitors from other countries each and every year plus a total of roughly 26 million overnight visits are made to London each year, and these overnight visits are mostly made by people living in other parts of the United Kingdom. The above figures are growing daily and so are the places offering all those people just as many ways to spend a weekend out & about or a festive evening with our loved ones – restaurants, pizzerias, cafes, pubs, clubs, hotels, museums, theatres, shops, cinemas, parks, etc.
What’s not to love about it?
Well, there is, certainly, one thing we hardly ever give thought to, namely, the level of hygiene and cleanliness at our most favourite café just around the corner. Or the riverside brasserie we went to for mom’s birthday. Or maybe the newly opened hotel we have booked for Christmas. All of them are being visited by thousands and thousands of people. How clean are these places? This is what inspired us to create a place where everyone can share views & comments, recommend or simply express their general opinion on the matter. What makes this blog and your part in it so important is the way the subject discussed affects our lives and experiences. We would like to also refer our concerns to corporate offices and communal areas where heavy footfall is in place therefore germs can be everywhere. When we cough or sneeze they disperse widely, landing here and there, where they wait patiently for someone to touch them (research shows they can remain potent for several hours). Once on someone’s hands, they stand a good chance of infecting them, since it is human nature to touch our faces. This is exactly how colds and flu happen. The vast majority of cases are passed from person to person. Think of things that are touched by many people in a day, and you will come up with the places where germs are shared: These can include:
Makes you nervous, doesn’t it? Create awareness and prevent it by sharing.
Raise awareness instead of eyebrows
Just like anything else, cleanliness is only achievable through knowledge of chemicals, methods and techniques. Different surfaces or fabrics require different cleaning solutions and methods applied in a certain way. It is very often that surfaces look clean but they are not. This is due to a wrong approach and may result in food poisoning, severe infections, property damage or simply poor hygiene which, undoubtedly, will lead to unwanted results because poor hygiene is dangerous regardless of place and time. Do we really know how to clean? Are we aware of how clean our working station or home is? The majority of us don’t have time to even think about it, let alone – do something about it. This is why being proactive instead of reactive is absolutely paramount and this blog is our way to raise awareness and avoid raising eyebrowse. Today we have compiled a list of some basic yet vital point about cleaning and the right way to do it:
