Many people choose to clean their offices themselves, often to try and save money however due to staff illness and decreased productivity it actually pays to get your office professionally cleaned plus, it is always easier to impress customers and potential partners if they come into a clean space.
For us at Cornwall Cleaning Service what is the scariest is the risks that you put staff in just by not getting the space professionally cleaned. In fact, in the majority of cases your staff would be safer eating their food of the toilet seat than their desk. When you think about that it really isn’t surprising why we so strongly believe that all office spaces should be professionally cleaned.
The impact of cleanliness on Staff
It is increasingly being shown that our work environments have a significant impact on employee wellbeing; both psychological and physical. When we look at harmful bacteria commonly found in offices is Staphylococcus aureus which is known to cause a number of infections. It is impossible to eradicate these bacteria as we naturally carry it around ourselves however professional cleaning will allow these levels to be kept to a minimum. Additionally, the Sick Building Syndrome is a common factor that effects employee’s health, specifically headaches and respiratory problems. Although these can be caused by a number of factors office cleanliness is one. Finally, cleanliness of a work space can have a psychological effect on your work with 94% of people being more productive in a clean work space and 77% producing higher quality work.
So, we know understand the benefits of cleaning your office space on a regular basis but here are a few reasons why it is important to get your office professionally cleaned;
You can focus on other things – The average Brit would spend £50,000 to never have to clean again and we are sure you are no different, it will also stop your employees moaning that they have to clean all the time and allow you to focus on doing business.
Your needs are met – Many people say well why can’t I just pay someone minimum wage to do my cleaning, well the truth is you can but you still won’t have a clean work space. Firstly they won’t put the required effort in but most importantly they will not have been trained on the best products and techniques to use to make sure everything is as clean as possible and also professional cleaners are trained so they can assess the best approach to take to tackle every different space.
The right products are used – Professional cleaners will only use the best products and techniques to ensure that everything is left as clean as possible. Most other people will supply their cleaning products from the local pound shop which doesn’t help keep your premises smelling and looking as good as possible
Professionals know the areas to focus on – Professional cleaners are trained to understand where the dirtiest areas are and they can then focus their attention accordingly. Just because something looks clean doesn’t mean it is and in fact in offices the dirtiest 2 things are the phone and desks and one of the cleanest things is the men’s toilet seat. Having professional cleaners will help you ensure that your work space doesn’t jut look clean but is in fact clean event under a microscope.
Hiring a professional cleaner is the best thing you can do to ensure your office is clean and presentable and to improve the psychological mindset and the physical health of your employees so they can produce not just more but also better quality of work.
