Four reasons a clean office is essential

Four reasons a clean office is essential

A survey carried out by The Mail found that 1 in 3 office workers don’t wash their hands after using the bathroom. With that in mind, it’s no shock to anyone that offices can be seriously unhygienic places, and a dirty workplace leads to all sorts of issues later down the line. Here are four essential reasons to call in professionals for your office cleaning needs, and save yourself from problems before they begin to arise.

Your image and reputation

It’s essential that visitors remember you when they leave your office – hopefully for your excellent skills and charming employees, rather than your grubby toilets and unwashed mugs! A survey conducted by Harris Interactive found a staggering 94% of people would avoid a business in the future if it had dirty restrooms. Having a polished image is an important part of maintaining a professional reputation, and cleanliness is at the forefront of that image.

The safety of equipment

Dirty equipment and machinery can cause huge problems for businesses, not least because they have a nasty habit of overheating very quickly when not cleaned regularly. In the worst scenario this can lead to fires – at best it leads to broken equipment that needs replacing at great cost.

The health of staff

Studies have shown that one person carrying a virus will infect 50% of all other employees within a shocking four hours. That’s a lot of kickback from one small bug! You can’t help the fact that staff will inevitably get ill, but you can do your best to avoid the problem spreading unnecessarily, and fewer sick days means better company productivity.

Office morale

Gunk in keyboards, coffee stains on desks, teetering piles of paperwork, flickering lightbulbs, grimy fridges, a limescale-filled kettle, murky toilet water and mucus on phone handsets – does that sound like a happy workplace? We think not! It’s common sense that a healthy mind is a happy one, and keeping a clean workplace will have huge rewards from grateful staff.
