3 Reasons Why You Need Professional Office Cleaning

Not sure if a professional office cleaning service is the right decision for your business? Here’s a list of three seasons why every office space needs a professional cleaner to maintain good hygiene.

  1. Unclean Offices Harm Workplace Productivity
    Workplace productivity can be harmed by a wide variety of things ranging from the design of your office environment, poor performing members of staff, or even something as simple as a clean and untidy working environment.

    “Our sense of smell is believed to affect 75% of our daily emotions” [Source] The human body is believed to  be able to recognise approximately ten thousand different odours; recalling scents with roughly 65% accuracy after a year, which when compared to visual memories, is only 50% accurate after just three months. This means that cleaning your workplace isn’t just about making it look tidy; it needs to smell and feel tidy; a professional environment needs a professional cleaner.

    Additionally, a professional workplace cleaning service could result in a boost in employee wellbeing, which has an effect on the productivity of employees. After all happy workers and productive workers. It’s easy to understand how an unclean environment could leave your employees feeling undervalued and unmotivated. So give them the workplace they deserve and ensure that it is properly cleaned and good hygiene standards are maintained.
  2. Your Office Could Be Making Your Employees Sick
    Did you know that “the average office desk harbours 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat?” [source]. Just think of all the sick days your untidy workplace could be causing; just think of the impact that has on your staff.

    Bacteria such as e-coli and Staphylococcus can be found in untidy working environments. Consider how many office items are shared amongst your employees, phones, keyboards, printers, etc? However it isn’t just about using powerful cleaning products to kill harmful bacteria, it’s also the little simple things. Washing hands with soap, ensuring that soap and hand wash items are available in all bathroom and kitchen facilities at all times. Another important step is dusting. Dust may seem minor and insignificant, but the term dust actually refers to a range of pollutants in the air; it can contain things such as dead animal skin cells, microscopic organisms, pollen, or even small pieces of rock. Some smaller particles of dust can be breathed in and 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. It Could Help You To Save / Make More Money
    As the Roman philosopher and playwright Titus Maccius Plautus said, “You must spend money to make money”. In many ways this makes perfect sense with regards to office cleaning. You could technically ask your current employees to take up additional cleaning duties in order to maintain the workplace. However, all the time they spend cleaning is time not spent doing the job you hired them to do. Also, people without professional training and experience in cleaning are all going to be at various different skill levels, which will at best result in inconsistency and at worst result in poor hygiene.

    Looking back at the previous point with employee health. Just think about how many days off work your employees miss due to illness. Consider if that illness is could have been contracted from bacteria or viruses they were in contact with in the office. In this situation, professional office cleaning and hygiene services could actually be a money saving opportunity.
