The Importance Of Office Cleaning

Did you know that “the average office desk harbours 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat?” source ] Just think of how many germs are on desks and shared workplace items such as office desk phones and computer keyboards. In order to ensure the productivity and wellbeing of your employees, it is essential that you maintain a clean and hygienic working environment. So here’s a list of 3 tips to help you keep your office squeaky clean.

3 Tips To Help You Keep A Clean Office

1. Use Quality Products

Simply put, office cleaning is essential to the smooth running of any office environment. So it’s very important that you only utilise high quality products that keep the office environment clean and hygienic.

If left untidy and unclean, your workplace can be a haven for bacteria such as e-coli and Staphylococcus; according to a study by Dr Charles P Gerba from the University of Arizona, office desk phones were found to have “over 25,000 organisms per surface”. This further emphasises the need for high quality cleaning products that kills 99% of harmful bacteria. After all, those bacteria could cause employees to take time off sick, which ultimately can affect the bottom line of your business.

2. Don’t Forget About The Simple Steps

However, whilst high quality cleaning products are very useful for maintaining a clean and hygienic work environment, it is also important that you don’t forget about the simple cleaning steps, such as washing your hands with soap. It is essential that you make sure all employees have access to soap in areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.

Another simple cleaning step that is essential for the smooth running is dusting. The term dust refers to a wide range of pollutants in the air which are often so small they cannot be seen by the naked eye. It can contain things such as dead animal skin cells, microscopic organisms, pollen, or even small pieces of rock.

For the most part, ‘large’ dust particles often cause no harm at all; they are trapped in the nose or mouth, able to be breathed out or swallowed. However, smaller particles can penetrate deep into the lungs, and ultrafine particles can be absorbed into the blood stream. These smaller particles are the main concern as they can cause a wide range of health issues such as coughing, sneezing, eye irritation, and respiratory conditions such as asthma.

3. Hire A Professional London Based Office Cleaner

Whilst it is true that all your employees could ‘chip in’ and help to maintain a clean workspace, every minute they spend cleaning their workspace is a minute they’re not doing the job you’re paying them to do.

If you’re currently working in an office that is not serviced by professional cleaners, the chances are you’re missing out on one of the simple pleasures of working in an environment that is regularly and thoroughly cleaned. With the assistance and services of professional cleaners from The Cleaning Academy, you’ll be able to breathe deep, enjoying the fresh clean scents, not the stench of stale air mixed with months of dust and dirt.
