Why Cleaning is Important for your Health

Is having a professional cleaner really going to help improve the health of your employees? Turns out, it will! Having a clean workspace improves not only physical health, but mental health as well!

  1. Working in a clean office space can reduce your stress levels. Cluttered desks can make things difficult to find, and dirty break rooms can make even your break time seem uneasy. Having a professional clean things up in the evenings can make you feel happier and more relaxed at work, leading to higher levels of productivity.
  2. Of course, working in a clean space will keep you healthier physically. You and your coworkers spend the majority of the day at work, and so germs can be spread easily. A clean workspace will keep the sneezes and sniffles away!
  3. Do you find yourself sneezing a lot … but just at work? You may be susceptible to occupational asthma, which you can read more about here. A professional cleaner vacuuming your carpets each night may make the difference between productivity and a day interrupted by constant nose-blowing and itchy eyes.
  4. Taking care of your flooring may not seem like a health hazard, but wet floors or worn down flooring can cause slips and falls! It’s wise to use a professional who knows what types of floor cleaner will keep your floors in tip-top condition.
  5. When was the last time you cleaned your lightbulbs? Believe it or not, your office lighting needs care, too! When your lights are clean, workers can see better, causing less of a strain on their eyes. It’s also important to have well-lit hallways and stairways to prevent accidents.

These may seem like such minor things, but together, a cleaner office will make you and your coworkers so much happier and healthier! What a relief it will be to work without having to strain your eyes due to poor lighting, or have to keep an extra box of tissues handy due to the dust in your carpets.

  1. It got me when you said that it’s best to hire a professional cleaner that can vacuum your carpets. As you said, sneezing a lot is a sign of occupational asthma. This is something that I will share with my supervisor at work, so he can consider hiring a janitor. There are buildups of dust and dirt on all the corners of our office that have been causing most of us to suffer from allergies. Our productivity is getting negatively affected due to occasional allergies and asthma. Thanks!
