Most offices hire a crew for nightly or weekly cleaning, but does that really keep your employees and customers safe and healthy?
Unfortunately, many companies stop at the bare minimum of office sanitation: wiping down counters, taking out the trash and vacuuming the floors. The office is still a breeding ground for germs and bacteria that build up in carpets and upholstery.
But the benefits of deep office cleaning services go well beyond the elimination of germs and bacteria. With workspaces that are next-level clean, employees are happier and more productive – and the general level of pride increases across the office.
Of course, the cost of office building sanitizing services is always a concern. But a periodic deep cleaning that includes odor removal, tile grout cleaning, and carpet and upholstery cleaning might be something you can’t afford not to have done two or three times each year.
Office Sanitation Services: Seven Reasons to Invest in Office Deep Cleaning Services
- Healthier and Safer Employees
When it comes to office sanitation, there's not a benefit more important than the health and welfare of your employees. Eliminating hidden germs and bacteria is one of the easiest ways to stop the spread of viruses or bugs around the workplace. While your office may look clean, some workplace equipment is 400-times dirtier than the average toilet seat. Deep cleaning hard surfaces can make a big difference in your employees' health.
- More Productive Employees
Naturally, a clean office reduces employee sick days. For example, results from a University of Norway study that explored the correlation between cleanliness and worker satisfaction, saw the cleaner office report a 12.5% decrease in sick days used. Several other studies over the years have shown that sick workers cost U.S. employers $2 billion annually. Spending money now on office deep cleaning services can have a great return on investment (ROI).
- Everything Looks Brand New
Something is gratifying about shiny new things. Research shows that the human brain is hardwired to be attracted to novelty. So, even if it's the same old office you've worked in for more than a decade, a deep clean can give it a like-new facelift, and it can give your employees a sense of fresh surroundings.
- Encourages Cleaner Individuals
Call it peer pressure, but if the tone is set early on that you run a clean office, expect your employees to follow suit. Many offices have general guidelines for employees to keep their workspace clean but expect that to be even more ingrained when they know their company is investing in a clean environment for them. This means providing things like anti-bacterial wipes and keyboard cleaner, but those are small costs that reap company-wide benefits when it comes to morale.
- Increased Pride in the Office
You don't have to research too hard to understand positive work cultures result in more productive employees. A regularly deep-cleaned office can be a point of pride that employees recognize. When employees are proud of their office, engagement increases, there's more creativity and they feel their work-life balance is improved. Simply put, they're more excited to come into the office.
- Easier to Recruit Employees
The best and brightest job candidates want to know their prospective employer cares about their health and safety and the office's overall vibe. If a candidate notices stained carpets, dingy grout or off smells they might be inclined to seek work elsewhere.
- Discover Unknown Issues
You never know what hidden sanitation or health problems a deep-cleaning crew could discover while on the job. Where are those water stains coming from? Why is there a smell permeating from the vents? These are just a few issues a deep cleaning team could uncover for you.
