When you are responsible for an office, you insist that it is clean, neat, and organized. You know that a well run organization increases productivity, but also a nice space just makes life better. Use your resources in the best way to provide a clean and healthy work environment for the staff. Outsource some of the labor and responsibility to the professionals; schedule regular office cleanings.
Take a look at the tasks that the team can tackle and identify those chores that are better done by professionals:
Look at your common areas where people sit, work, and lounge. Think of solid surfaces: counters, desks, cubicles, and work tables. Consider the extra cleaning steps required on upholstered surfaces. Check the closets and storeroom–make sure they are clean and organized with no dangerous chemicals. Do you have a regular schedule for these chores?
Employee health is a crucial key to your business success. Maybe your office has experimented with working for home, hybrid or staggered work hours in the past year. So now, whenever you have staff or clients in the facility, you are acutely aware of the indoor air quality and clean surfaces.
Allergies are one of the top three reasons employees miss work. Your cleaning team can do a lot to lower the amount of allergens in the workspace. Frequent carpet and upholstery cleaning can keep your employees functioning at their best. A professional commercial cleaning service can use safer, “green” products with less irritants. Meet with the Cloute team to review the alternatives that will work in your space.
Small businesses struggle when an illness is spread from employee to employee. And with the dangerous and contagious COVID variants, your entire business flow is at risk. If your staff is out on sick leave, production slows or halts. And since many people that are exposed to viruses are asymptomatic, they may not know to stay home, they continue coming to work and spreading the germs.
A deep, professional cleaning is an important factor in keeping your workforce healthier and can help reduce the spread of the latest virus. The CDC recommends sanitizing common areas daily. Viruses can infect others for up to 48 hours on a solid surface. To help avoid employee illness, all shared areas (bathrooms, breakrooms, training rooms) must be disinfected.
Beyond cleaning, there are other actions that you can take. Invest in no-touch wastebaskets, hand-drying systems, and soap dispensers. Ask the Cloute team for more suggestions for your facility.
