What Are The Benefits Of Hiring A Professional Office Cleaning Company?

1. Maintain High Levels Of Productivity
Office cleanliness is a essential to maintaining high levels of office productivity. The levels of productivity in your workplace can drop for a wide range of reasons, including poor design, poor use of storage space, and an unclean environment.

Simply put, an unclean and untidy office environment is a significant distraction. Did you know that after being distracted, “it takes an average of 25 minutes to return to the original task after an interruption”? However, that’s not the worst of it, “a typical office worker gets only 11 minutes between each interruption”. [ source ]

It’s also worthwhile considering the health implications of untidy offices. Many businesses will consider modifying their open plan office spaces in order to try and reduce the amount of sick days employees will need throughout the year, however did you know viruses such as the flu can linger on unclean surfaces for 24 hours? In order to maintain high levels of productivity it’s essential that you ensure that workplace surfaces such as keyboards and desks are kept clean to reduce the spread of harmful viruses and bacteria.

2. Take Care Of Your Employee’s Wellbeing
In addition to assisting in maintaining high levels of productivity, office cleaning can also help to maintain good employee wellbeing. After all, your employees are the life-force of your business, so it’s essential that they’re all performing at their best.

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”. Did you know “the average office desk harbours 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat?” source ].

However, germs are not the only threat to your employee’s health and wellbeing; you should also consider the risks of dust. 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. If you breathe in a large dust particle, it will tend to be trapped in the nose or mouth, able to be breathed out or swallowed, often causing no harm at all. However, smaller particles can penetrate deep into the lungs, and ultrafine particles can be absorbed into the blood stream. This can cause a wide range of health issues such as coughing, sneezing, eye irritation, and respiratory conditions such as asthma.

So it isn’t just the bacteria and viruses you need to watch out for, simple tasks such as frequently dusting the office environment can have a significant impact on your staff, especially those suffering from asthma and/or hayfever.

3. Utilise The Skills Of Experienced Professionals
Whilst it is true that any staff member can quickly dust their workplace and keep on top of their working environment, every minute they spend cleaning their workspace is a minute they’re not doing the job you’re paying them to do. So instead, allow your employees to focus on their tasks and reap the rewards and benefits of hiring experienced professional cleaners.
