The corona pandemic revealed that the cleaning industry was not prepared for that type of new situation. At the beginning of the pandemic, unnecessary cleaning was done, e.g., disinfectants were used for a feeling of security, not needs-based. In the project PandemicClean – Safe and Effective Cleaning in Pandemic Situations, cleaning instructions for the coronavirus pandemic were gathered from 15 countries. Several scientific research findings were also summarised. On that basis, the following proposal was compiled for planning the cleaning work in the next pandemic situation. Cleaning should be considered from the point of view of both cleaners and users of the space cleaned.
