Why Office Cleaning Could Transform Your Business

Posted on December 28, 2016

Success in business is as much being good as looking good. Luckily office cleaning services can help you with both. Did you know, for instance, that regular office cleaning has a direct correlation to you efficiency?

Consider this. The main difference between a comfortable work flow and one where everyone is stressed is a mixture of processes and keeping everyone healthy and focused. A hygienic workplace is rarer than you might think, and it gets overlooked because most folks don’t realize how easy it is for pathogens to build up in common places.

Your average desk phone generally contains 25,000 bacteria per square inch. Depending on the type of germs, it can take as little as a single bacterium or several hundred to get you sick. Nonetheless, the density we’re talking about on the phone is a huge culprit in itself. Everyone touches the phone after touching all sorts of other things, and worse yet we hold the phones to our faces!

Everyone harps on washing your hands after you use the bathroom. That’s certainly important, but unfortunately that ends up being about the only time during the day most people wash. Here’s another surprising fact for you: your average office desk tends to have 400 times the germs of a toilet seat.

See the problem? We wash our hands in the bathroom, but return to our desks and touch all sorts of germy surfaces and continue our day. From there we shake hands with each other and touch common areas in break rooms, making the transmission of illness pretty likely.

Regular cleaning can mitigate this a great deal.

Bacteria can increase up to 31% per day on surfaces that aren’t regularly cleaned. That’s why it’s so important to have a regular office cleaning routine. Even if visually things still look pretty clean, if it’s been several days since your last cleaning you could be inviting trouble (even if it’s invisible).

We recommend businesses have a thorough cleaning done at least once a week. Though ideally you’d clean the floors and surfaces each day to keep that in check.

Our office cleaning services cover all these bases. From bathrooms to desks, break rooms, and floors, we make sure your work space is hygienic and visually appealing for a smooth work day. Illness is inevitable at some point or another, but it doesn’t have to stem from your work place. Don’t put yourself in a tough position with missing staff due to illness during critical times.
