5 Office Cleaning Tips. How Clean Is Your Bournemouth Office?

As a highly experienced cleaning business we’re very aware of the dangerous presented by unhygienic working conditions and the many advantages that can be found from a professional office cleaning service. So here’s a quick list of 5 tips for office cleaning.

Surfaces Do Not Clean Themselves

Did you know “the average office desk harbours 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat?” [source]. It’s essential that you regularly clean all surfaces, just because it looks clean doesn’t mean it is clean, after all surfaces don’t clean themselves. Additionally, cleaning isn’t just about cleaning up clutter, you also need to ensure that working environments are kept germ-free as unclean office environments are breeding grounds for all sorts of nasty microorganisms, including dangerous bacteria such as e-coli and Staphylococcus.

In order to maintain compliance with legislator and regulatory requirements, businesses need to maintain a clean and hygienic working environment. In fact, a duty to ensure that the health and safety of your employees are protected as far as is reasonable and practical. The specifics of which are defined in the Health and Safety Act 1974

Consider The High Traffic Areas
High traffic areas or areas in which infection has an opportunity to spread are very important points to focus on with regards to office cleaning. After all, if you can reduce the ability of the flu virus to spread in your workplace and reduce the amount of time your employees spend on sick-leave, you’ll see the results in your bottom line.

Typically speaking, office environments are breeding grounds for all sorts of nasty microorganisms, including dangerous bacteria such as e-coli and Staphylococcus, alongside harmful viruses such as the flu virus which can linger on unclean surfaces for up to 24 hours.

Embrace Micro-Fibre CleaningMicro-fibre cleaning cloths are a fantastic cleaning utensil. They attract dirt and dust like iron filings to a magnet, making them superb for companies concerned about eco-friendliness with regards to using environmentally harmful chemicals such as detergents because thanks to the use of micro-fibre cleaning cloths, you can reduce the amount of harmful detergents and chemicals that are required in the cleaning process.To provide our clients with peace of mind regarding the environment and eco-friendliness of our cleaning activities, green thinking is at the core of our activities. We understand that as a cleaning company, we have a responsibility to conduct our business in an environmentally responsible manner. We reduce our carbon footprint through choosing local suppliers and eliminating unnecessary journeys, purchase recycled and biodegradable consumables, and we are involved in waste removal/recycling projects. 

Experiment With Different Scents
The simple pleasures of working in a regularly cleaned environment should not be overlooked. With the assistance of professional cleaners from a talented and thorough office cleaning business such as 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. 

Make Extra Effort In Food Prep Areas
Food prep areas require extra effort and care. After all, whilst some illnesses are spread airborne many require physical contact and contaminated food prep areas provide the ‘perfect storm’ for such illnesses. If not properly cleaned, a contaminated office food prep area could cause the illness to spread amongst everyone else who uses the area, and as some illnesses are contagious before symptoms appear, it could prove very harmful to your business as numerous people need to take sick-leave at the same time.

Additionally, it’s also important to pay extra attention to food prep areas as unclean food prep areas can become breeding grounds for a selection of different pests. For example, if your waste management services are not reliable, you could see a build up of flies and other insects as a result of the lingering trash. This can get especially distracting and potentially be a health hazard. With regards to small fruit flies, they pose a risk to human health as dangerous bacteria and other microorganisms can stick to their bodies, and then be transferred to our food, or onto our hands.
