Most of us spend more time at work than we do at home! In fact, our workplaces are pretty much a second home, but not only for us, our colleagues spend just as much time there as we do. With so many people spending 40 to 50 hours a week in the same place, keeping the place clean and tidy can sometimes present a problem.
With the best will in the world, although everyone may make an effort to keep on top of the basics, cleaning is rarely a priority in businesses. Running the hoover around occasionally and having a quick clean and tidy of the bathroom and kitchen will keep your workplace looking okay, but it won’t be really clean!
Here are three ways we think that every business can benefit from using commercial cleaning services;
A Safer Workplace
With illness costing businesses around 16 billion pounds a year, you’ll want to keep your workplace free from germs and bacteria. Commercial cleaners do so much more than run a duster a hoover around the place! Think of all the places in your office that you touch throughout your working day, door handles, keyboard, telephones and printer/copier buttons to name but a few. Now, when was the last time you saw a colleague giving them a once over…?
According to recent research undertaken on behalf of the PHS Group, 48 per cent of staff are unhappy with the hygiene standard of their workplace. Amazingly, 88% reported that the standard of cleanliness impacted productivity. So if you want to keep productivity high, get the professionals in!
It can be easy not to notice a gradual build of dust and dirt over time, especially when you see the same place day in and day out. You can be certain that visitors will notice though, and with most people associating cleanliness with professionalism, that is not a risk worth taking! Hiring commercial cleaners will ensure your business has a sparkling reputation.
Although it is tempting to think that if everyone ‘mucks in’ a bit with the cleaning at work, it will always come second to the actual work that they do. At Workplace Cleaning Solutions, we take great pride in providing the highest possible cleaning standards as it’s our number one priority!
