Why Your Office Needs a Professional Janitorial Service

There are many benefits to hiring an experienced, reputable janitorial service that you can depend on to keep your office (or office building) clean, healthy, and looking its best. For starters, a clean, well-maintained office helps create a positive and productive work environment. Let’s face it, nobody wants to spend 8 hours a day working in a dingy, dirty, and unhygienic office.

A clean and attractive workplace is not only more appealing for your employees but also makes an excellent first impression for anyone that walks through your doors. Dingy floors, dusty surfaces, wastebaskets overflowing with trash, dirty works stations, desks piled high with stuff, and unhygienic bathrooms and break rooms don’t necessarily bode well for maintaining a professional business image.

Last but not least, an office that is not regularly cleaned and disinfected can quickly become a breeding ground for germs, viruses, bacteria, and fungi (pathogens) that can make your employees sick. According to a joint study by Gallup and Healthways, the cost of sick days on the U.S. economy can be as high as $84 billion each year. A clean and hygienic office can help reduce employee sick days, impacting your bottom line.  

The CDC recommends that employees wash their hands frequently and wipe down their workspaces to help reduce the spread of germs. Additionally, hiring a professional janitorial service to routinely clean and disinfect your office is a great way to keep illness-causing germs at bay and maintain a healthy workplace.

A professional janitorial service will get the job done right  

In order to run a productive and successful business, the energy and talents of your staff should remain focused on the tasks they were hired to perform – while delegating other tasks. Unless you run a cleaning company, your employees are probably familiar with best practices, products, methods, and equipment necessary to properly clean and disinfect an office.

By hiring an experienced janitorial service like Cleanstart, your staff can focus on the important, day-to-day operations of your office and leave the cleaning to the experts. Our cleaners know what products to use and how to use them most effectively. For example, many disinfectants require a dwell time upwards of 10 minutes to reach their full kill-claim on surfaces. If a product is wiped off prematurely it can impact the efficacy of the disinfection process.

There are also many different disinfectant formulations that vary based on chemical composition, efficacy claims,  and dilution ratios.  Some are more effective against viruses while others are more effective against bacteria commonly found in and around food preparation areas.

While you may have the necessary cleaning and disinfecting supplies on hand, it’s essential that you use the proper cleaning methods and techniques. What may seem like a relatively small step, such as dwell time, can make all the difference when it comes to effectively killing germs and ensuring the health and safety of your staff.

A professional janitorial service will keep your office clean, healthy, and safe

Did you know that the average office desk can have up to 400 times more germs than an office toilet? That’s a lot of germs that can spread quickly in a confined environment such as an office. A buildup of dust, dirt, lint, pollen, allergen, and other particulates can cause serious health issues for people with respiratory concerns or allergies. Viruses can also easily spread easily from one employee to another. 

In order to help prevent the transmission and spread of germs, bacteria, and viruses, including influenza (flu) and COVID-19, the CDC recommends routine cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched objects and surfaces in the workplace, such as desks, keyboards, phones, countertops, doorknobs, handles, light switches, etc.  At Cleanstart, our professional cleaners are trained in the latest cleaning and disinfection best practices established by the CDC and WHO and observe all OSHA safety standards for COVID-19

Our cleaning technicians use a combination of hand wiping and an electrostatic sprayer – an effective tool in supplementing the everyday janitorial cleaning methods used in offices and commercial facilities. Electrostatic spraying kills viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 which is the virus that causes COVID-19.

It has been proven to kill 99.99% of viruses in a matter of minutes, making it not only effective but also extremely fast-acting. We use an EPA-registered disinfectant solution with a broad-spectrum kill claim (list N) used against coronavirus, norovirus, H1N1, SARS, MRSA, swine flu, E. coli, salmonella & more. The solution leaves no harsh fumes or visual residue and is environmentally friendly, hypo-allergenic, and safe.  

A professional janitorial service will save you time and money

Cleaning professionals are able to tackle workplace hygiene more efficiently and cost-effectively than if you were to have your own employees taking on those tasks. When you leave the cleaning to the experts, your staff has more time to spend on the work they were hired to perform.

Wiping down desks, cleaning bathroom toilets, and mopping floors was probably not in the job description your employees signed up for. And since a happy employee is generally a more productive one, delegated those tasks to a professional cleaning service like Cleanstart only makes good sense. We also use all our own products, materials, and equipment, so you’ll save money on having to purchase these items yourself. 

The takeaway

A clean and hygienic office signifies a level of professionalism and sends a positive message to the world about your business. It also creates a more positive and productive work environment for your staff and helps keep them from getting sick, while reducing the high cost of employee absenteeism.
