Introducing surface cleaning

Issued by: Diversey


In hospitality, we come into contact with lots of different types of surfaces. And we're all more aware than ever that keeping up good hygiene and cleanliness is one of the best ways to limit the spread of illness and infection. 

In the Introducing surface cleaning course, Diversey will teach you what surfaces to clean, how to clean them, when to clean, and how to develop an efficient cleaning workflow.

You'll also learn how to use chemicals to clean surfaces. For your safety, Diversey recommends you pay attention to proper dosage of these chemicals when cleaning. You can find these details on the Diversey product label on each item bottle. Each chemical also has a Safety Data Sheet. These are available at your workplace, or on the Diversey website. Links are available in each lesson in this course.
