Consequences of Ignoring Office Cleaning
If you are wondering whether you should be having your office cleaned, or why you spend money to have your office cleaned periodically, this post is for you! We all like a tidy workspace, but there is more to it. There can be minor or potentially serious consequences.
- Sick employees. We cover this again, and again, but for good reason. Ignoring your cleaning duties and failing to get a deep clean every once and a while can result in health problems as simple as seasonal allergies, to more serious health issues. If you are not cleaning high-touch areas like doorways, bathrooms and kitchens, serious illnesses, like the flu can be easily spread. If you are not cleaning your carpet, walls, ducts, etc. then mold can become an issue and wreak havoc on people’s health who are sensitive to mold.
- Unproductive employees. This goes hand in hand with number one. Sick employees means less, or sub par work. Along with being sick, no one likes to work in an unclean space. Did you know, clutter, dirt, and cleanliness play a huge factor in the productivity levels of employees. Give your employees a space to work where they don’t have to be distracted by the mess around them.
- Large investments when items are neglected. You might think “why am I spending money to have my workspace cleaned?”. I can answer that for you now. You are saving a lot of money by keeping your space in good shape. You are saving yourself from making big investments on your building. Just think how fast your carpet collects dust, dirt, salt, etc. If you choose to let it linger, you will be forced to replace your carpet in no time. An even worse situation would be if you were to get mold. That is a lot of money to be spending!
- Bad first impression. Whether you’re trying to hire good employees, get new clients, or even get good reviews, a tidy workspace can influence the decision. Appearances do matter when it comes to professional business. Cleanliness can imply responsibility, great work ethic, and even trustworthiness. Keep your space looking clean, so you don’t have to take extra steps to prove your company.
