There is a lot of things that need to be cleaned at the office. Tasks such as cleaning the public washroom, vacuuming the hallway carpet, trash removal from each cubicle, or remove dust from your desk. Hiring a professional cleaner makes your life easier and actually saves you money and time. Here are a few benefits to why you should think to hire a cleaning team for your business.
Professional cleaners bring their own cleaning supplies such as vacuum cleaner, mope, and cleaning solutions. Your office doesn’t need a designated space for heavy cleaning equipment nor do you need to invest in one. On top of bringing their supplies, they know how to clean efficiently and in a timely manner. Professional cleaners are trained properly on sanitizing your work area.
It is cost-effective to bring in a professional team than redirect the employee’s time from their job. A thorough clean work environment reduces the cost of employee sick day and boost productivity. And let’s be honest, the professionals will spend less time doing an excellent job than you will anyway. Daily cleaning at the office will reduce costs of having to replace carpets and furnishings by extending fabric life.
Lastly, most cleaning companies are affordable. If you are small business, you can get a cleaning team once a week for a few hours that wouldn’t make a dent in your pocket. A bigger business with more employees would definitely need a cleaner coming in several times a week. A good rule of thumb is the more employees sharing a common space, the greater the need for the cleaners to come in.
In conclusion, leave it to the professional cleaners while you prepare for your next business meeting.
Dust may look harmless but can be harmful to your respiratory health. A study by Epidemiology has shown that thorough cleaning reduces the airborne dust in offices, and can also reduce mucosal symptoms and nasal congestion. There were also reports of a correlation between office dust and eye complaints such as “dry eyes” and “eye irritation”. These tips will help you prevent and remove dust from the air in the office.
Tip #1: Investing in Air Purifiers
Investing in an air purifier for your office space may be the best solution if you also have allergies. Having an effective HEPA filters around you can remove up to 99.97% of airborne particles. Air purifiers are great at removing indoor pollutant coming from construction debris and mold spores from the ceiling. Most air purifiers not only remove dusts but also eliminate odor in the air.
Tip #2: Minimize Dust by Using a Duster
Dusters are an excellent tool to use when dust is on hard to reach places such as file cabinets and ceiling fans. Most people believe that dusters remove dust just by wiping the surface with it but unfortunately, it does not eliminate dust. It merely just moves the dust from one place to another. After dusting, use a vacuum cleaner. A good vacuum cleaner can collect dust from your desk, monitors, small objects and carpet at your office.
Overall, reducing dust at the office isn’t as hard as it seems. You just need to change the filter from the air purifiers once in a while and vacuum once a week.
