Office cleanliness is money in your pocket!

For many reasons, having a clean office will positively impact the success of your business.  Just as having a dirty house would warn off house guests, having a dirty office scares off potential clients.  A 2011 study conducted by The Bradley Corporation found that 91 percent of respondents said an “unclean public restroom” had a negative effect on their perception of the entire establishment or business.

Your customers and clients are not the only ones affected by office cleanliness.  Employee morale and productivity levels are lower in an unclean environment.  The vast majority of a full time employee’s time is spent at their office, so you want it to look as visually pleasing as possible, which includes providing a clean and safe work environment for employees.

One of the biggest reasons to have a clean office is to reduce employee sick days.  Having a clean work place means having less germs and bacteria; having less germs and bacteria means having healthier employees.  One survey of 100 U.S. office buildings found that 23 percent of office workers frequently experienced “Sick Building Syndrome” symptoms such as respiratory infections, allergies and asthma.  These workers had more sick days, lower productivity, and higher medical costs.  Bacteria can cause workers to miss an average of 1.5 days of work, costing $20 billion in lost productivity.  Studies show you can reduce the incidence of colds by 85 percent, allergies by 65 percent and asthma by 23 percent just by having a clean office.

Just remember, when it comes to cleaning your office it is always best to leave it to the Professionals!  It is better to hire a professional crew who knows exactly what to do and isn’t merely “pushing around the dirt and bacteria” but instead properly disinfecting equipment and furniture, and disposing of trash.  Professional cleaning companies have the equipment, products, man power and training to properly clean any and all types of businesses.
