Professional cleaning services keep your office tidy, clutter free, present a professional appearance, and promote the health of your staff and clients.
Cleaning Services and a Tidy Workplace
One of the primary advantages of hiring professional cleaning services is that they’re, well, professionals.
They have a plan to clean your office and keep it stocked with cleaning supplies and toiletries.
They know the best method for cleaning your new designer carpet without ruining it.
They know what chemicals not to use on your marble floors and countertops.
All of that planning and knowledge leads to one thing-a more productive and profitable workplace.
A Better Place to Work
Face it; you and your staff work better together in a clean and healthy environment.
People spend more money at places they enjoy going to.
A filthy, stinking office is none of those things.
If you’re considering trying to clean your office yourself, keep these three business adages in mind:
- Time is money.
- First impressions count.
- You have to spend money to make money.
A Green Business is a Profitable Business
Most individuals are, at least, passingly familiar with the concept and benefits of Green Cleaning.
Green cleaning uses natural solvents and chemicals to break up tough stains instead of harsh/toxic chemicals.
The natural solutions, combined with Microfiber ensure microscopic bacteria that cause illness, and bad smells are removed.
Since the solvents are all-natural, they do not pollute the environment when flushed down a drain.
Nor do they leave behind a chemical residue that may cause allergic reactions in staff and clients.
Design, Productivity, and Well-Being
In an oft-cited, 1998 paper presented to The American Institute of Architects Conference on Highly Effective Facilities, Judith H. Heerwagen, Ph.D. is quoted as concluding:
The problem that has received the most attention is indoor air quality.
Building attributes that directly influence health include airborne toxins and noxious chemicals associated with materials and finishings, cleaning products, and equipment; noxious and hazardous substances associated with work processes; and airborne pathogens associated with HVAC systems.
Enhanced indoor air quality from reduced use of toxic and noxious materials is a core feature of green buildings.
Improved IAQ is also central to the arguments about ancillary benefits.
According to a model developed by Fisk and Rosenfeld (1997), improved air quality could result in significant reductions in illness and absenteeism associated with respiratory disease, asthma and allergies, and sick building syndrome symptoms.
They estimate productivity gains of $17 billion to $164 billion annually associated with improved air quality.
They also estimate improved worker performance from enhancements of the thermal environment and lighting to be in the range of $12 billion to $125 billion annually.
DESIGN, PRODUCTIVITY AND WELL BEING: What are the Links?
Judith H. Heerwagen, Ph.D.
Dr. Heerwagen went on further to propose the following equation;
Performance = Ability x Motivation x Opportunity
concluding that the quality of an employee’s performance is directly related to their environment, specifically the cleanliness of the air and water, as well as well established Green Office Standards.
Professional Cleaning Process
