Why a clean office can boost your business
Category: Office Cleaning
One of the most obvious results of good office cleaning is that it reduces the amount of dirt and pathogens workers are exposed to. This means greater productivity as fewer people suffer from colds and other low-level illnesses, leading to a reduced need for sick days.
It’s also a legal requirement under the Health and Safety at Work Act for employers to provide a hygienic workplace for their workers.
Maintaining a clean office can also help the health of your valuable technology. Clearing up crumbs and dust on a regular basis means that they are less likely to get into keyboards and connecting points of the office computers, which can cause them to break prematurely.
What’s more, a dirty computer keyboard can contain as much as 150 times more bacteria than would be safe on a toilet seat. If you scrimp on cleaning, it’s hardly surprising if your staff get ill.
A good atmosphere can also be partly built through professional cleaning. This will help keep your staff happy, and in turn increase productivity. This makes sense, as no one enjoys spending their days in an unpleasant environment.
Whether your clients visit your premises regularly or only on occasion, a clean office can be just as important in building a professional appearance as clean and neatly presented employees. It may seem like a small thing, but an dirty office can be extremely off-putting, and even cause you to lose business.
Even if you use the money you would have spent on professional cleaning for enticing promotions and offers, uptake will be much lower if customers are offered them in an unclean business environment. This makes office cleaning a smart and essential investment, even if you are concerned about cost.
