If recent events have taught us anything, it’s the importance of clean sterilised surfaces, especially in public and in the workplace. Maintaining a clean and hygienic workplace is essential for not only the health and wellbeing of your employees, but also to convey a positive and professional business image.
The best way to cleanse, sterilise and disinfect your workplace is with regular commercial cleaning.
What are the benefits of a professionally cleaned office?
There are many benefits to getting your office space professionally cleaned, some obvious and some not so obvious.
A hygienically cleaned office makes it harder for viruses to be transmitted as surfaces and items are cleaned thoroughly and often. Professional cleaners tend to use commercial grade cleaning products, which can disinfect surfaces much more efficiently than most standard household cleaners.
Professional cleaning can also help to reduce instances of sick days among employees. Besides disinfecting surfaces and reducing the chance of spreading germs, cleaning will also improve air quality. It will reduce general indoor air pollution, cleansing the air of allergens like dust and pollen, which can aggravate existing health problems and lead to more sick days.
Regular cleaning can also help to reduce the incidences of workplace injuries. WorkSafe Victoria provides good information on the importance of cleaning in reducing work-related injury.
A neat and fresh office also makes an important first impression for clients and other visitors. The condition of your office will reflect not only on your business but on yourself and your employees.
Now, more than ever, cleanliness and hygiene are vital not just for the health and safety of your employees, but to convey a professional business image and assure your clients that you’re a company to be trusted.
While regular commercial cleaning will cost you, it can actually save you money in the long run.
For starters, professional cleaning can actually help to extend the lifespan of materials like carpeting and upholstery. Regular cleaning will remove stains and fix minor damage to these surfaces, meaning they will last longer.
Further, as many cleaning services bring their own products and equipment, you don’t need to spend money on cleaning supplies. Instead, this money can be used to grow your business.
Better quality clean
As all cleaning will be done by professionals, you can also expect a higher quality clean.
They use professional-grade equipment that is purpose designed for premium cleaning. Additionally, they understand how to extensively clean your business’ space, for instance, cleaning not only the carpets and surfaces, but also curtains, blinds and air ducts.
You can also choose a service that is customised to suit the needs of your business. For instance, an accountancy firm does not need the same level and frequency of cleaning as a medical office would. Talk with your cleaners to find out what services they offer and tailor something to suit your business.
Save on storage
While we all do our best to be paperless and keep as much of our work online, storage is still at a premium in many office spaces. Having to lose space to store cleaning products and equipment can be a problem. By hiring a professional cleaning service, you don’t need to give up that stationery cupboard for a mop and bucket though.
Do the right thing by your business and employees by hiring professional cleaners and you can all enjoy the benefits.
