As many companies transition back to the office, their employees may have mixed emotions. If this scenario describes your position as a business manager, no doubt you want to ensure the move back is as smooth as possible. While you can’t recreate the individual comforts of everyone’s home, you can create the most welcoming, spotless space possible. One of the best ways to do this? Get regular office cleaning.

Return to a Fresh Start in the Workplace with Office Cleaning

Here are just a few reasons you’ll find it pays:

  • Sanitation: Whenever people share space for many hours, their chances of also sharing colds and other illnesses increase. Regular office cleaning sanitizes surfaces everyone touches (doorknobs, countertops, desks, refrigerators, microwaves, etc.), helping prevent the office from becoming a breeding ground for germs and viruses. With lower odds of catching these bugs, employees are not only able to keep returning but also keep up their best performance.
  • Morale: In general, people feel uncomfortable and distracted in dirty surroundings; these emotional states are not conducive to quality work. Dusty desks, crumb-covered breakroom tables, and scuffed or muddy floors can all contribute to a dismal and/or disorganized atmosphere, where even the most dedicated worker can find it hard to concentrate. Secondly, the space provided for employees also conveys regard for them as individuals. If they’re required to report to an unkempt office, people often assume their employer doesn’t necessarily prioritize their well-being.
  • Productivity: Each employee in the office has a specific job, and most likely they weren’t hired to refill the restroom soap or unclog the breakroom sink. But if conditions in restrooms and breakrooms are less than inviting, people often feel obliged to simply complete these tasks themselves to make the space more comfortable. This means less time spent doing what they’re paid to do. One quick counter wipe-down doesn’t equal going in the red, but if employees are constantly doing office cleaning themselves, costs can add up to reduced productivity or even potential turnover.
