If keeping your employees office space clean and tidy at all times isn’t on your list of priorities, the team at C4 Cleaning are here to tell you that it absolutely should be!
A workspace, whether an office, warehouse or factory, should be kept hygienically clean for more reasons than the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us, and here are 5 reasons for you to start focusing on office cleaning, and give your business a boost:
- First impressions really do count
Many companies invite clients and potential customers into their offices for meetings to discuss business deals, and if they’re faced with an office that hasn’t experienced the magic of C4 Cleaning, it likely won’t create a favorable impression. If a potential client or investor walks into a dusty and unorganized workspace with stained carpets and grubby windows, they could be forgiven for thinking that as a company, your standards are set pretty low. With regular office cleaning, on the other hand, you can present anyone who enters the office, with a great first impression of both you, and your business.
- Your brand could get the elevation it deserves
For many companies who choose not to work with a professional commercial cleaning company like C4 Cleaning, they risk having their brand associated with inferior products and services, as cleanliness and orderliness are synonymous with quality, for the average customer. From offices to shop floors, warehouses and leisure facilities, if a customer doesn’t see that cleanliness is a priority for a company, they may choose not to buy your brand.
Invest in regular office cleaning and give customers a reason to choose your brand over others.
- It’ll make your employees happier and more productive
Many employees, particularly those who work full time, spend more time at work than they do at home, and as such, employers should recognize the importance of providing them with a clean and sanitary workspace. By investing in the regular services of a company like C4 Cleaning, you could make your employees feel more comfortable and safer when they’re at work, and since it has long been proven that a healthy environment (be it home or workspace) fosters feelings of contentment and productivity, office cleaning could benefit your business as a whole.
- Cleanliness prevents employees calling in sick
An office that undergoes regular and professional cleaning from a company like C4 Cleaning, doesn’t just make employees feel more comfortable and content, but it can help prevent the spread of germs and viruses, too. As the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us only too clearly, germs can easily be spread from one person to the other through the touching of shared surfaces and items around the office, such as telephones, light switches and door handles. Professional office cleaning on a regular basis helps ensure that all commonly touched surfaces and items within the office are hygienically cleaned to prevent cross-contamination. And if less employees are getting sick, productivity shouldn’t falter and agency staff won’t have to be hired to fill in the gaps.
- You can improve the air quality
Greatly influencing productivity and the overall health of employees, an office with poor air quality and that hasn’t been cleaned by C4 Cleaning, isn’t a healthy one, it’s as simple as that.
Airborne pollutants can make life a misery for anyone confined to a space such as an office, and can be present in far larger numbers than they are outside (up to 100 x greater, in many instances). Without proper office cleaning and regular cleaning of heating and cooling ducts and vents, your employees are far more likely to suffer from allergy symptoms and in turn, take more sick leave.
