Four Cleaning Tips for Keeping Your Employees Healthy
Updated: Oct 7, 2021
With cold and flu season in full swing, employees may be dropping like flies, or worse still, bringing their coughing, sneezing, nose-blowing selves to work. This can be a drain on an office's entire energy, pulling down morale as fast as the temperature drops. May we recommend a few professional cleaning services to make sure your business can operate at peak strength?
Did you know that dust contains small amounts of plant pollen, human and animal hairs, minerals from outdoor soil, dead human skin cells, and many other materials which may be found in the local environments? All of which carry multitudes of germs designed to tear a human body down, and in the process, halt the production of your livelihood. Regular dusting not only looks better, but it is also a visible way to SEE the contaminants being wiped away.
Regular Workspace Cleaning
While we can’t be responsible for keeping your desk tidy, something that many employers make actual policy over, we can ensure that those places you regularly touch remain clean in the strictest sense of the word. Wiping down desks, computer keypads, and accessories, and the entire phone thoroughly is an important way of combatting illness in the workplace.
Whether it’s a shared bathroom with stalls or a single user toilet that locks, everyone uses it eventually, which means if it isn’t kept clean, everyone will be exposed to everyone else’s germs. Keeping it scrubbed and sanitary not only cuts out a major source of contamination but since nobody likes a yucky bathroom ever, having a clean one promotes a more friendly and relaxed work environment.
Floor Cleaning – Vacuuming, Sweeping, and Mopping
Going through the trouble of dusting and wiping down all your surfaces does little good if you are not going to then sanitize the biggest surface of any environment: the floor. In addition to all those icky particles we mentioned that comprise dust, your floors are subject to whatever you step on or into out in the world. From subway platforms to city sidewalks, the amount of filth your shoes are covered in can be staggering. Think about it…most of us kick off our shoes when we enter someone’s home, so we have no problem wearing potentially virulent footwear all day to the one place where we spend most of our waking hours? Paying a professional to make sure floors are swept and washed correctly and carpets well-vacuumed is the least you can do for yourself, your employees, and your business.
