Many business owners are running a great business but doesn’t pay attention to the hygiene details and doesn’t realize how important that is and how many positive effects clean environments can have on their business.
Every month we spend around 160-200 hours in the office on average. During these working hours, we all want our employees to be maximally productive and motivated, to work to the best of their abilities, to achieve the set goals and most importantly, to enjoy working in a clean office environment with motivational working conditions. A fresh and clean environment will surely motivate your workforce allowing your staff to focus on their goals, sends off a “we care” message that can also prevent the spread of germs and reduce annual sick leave, and of course, to reflect very positively on your company’s image and reputation. We are not saying all this to blandish you to use our cleaning services, but we are stating facts. It’s a fact that all businesses, whether you are a start-up or an established company. Well-maintained offices can have way bigger chances of success drastically and to have very positive effects on the well being of every person, whether a business owner or an employee. It can have a domino effect on the working environment, the work produced and the company’s future and hopefully, a great success.
Ask yourself in a first place, would you rather walk into a messy and dirty office and know that you have to be there for at least eight hours per day, or to walk into a fresh and clean office and have the time fly-by?
Nothing could be nicer for every employee than to be greeted by a clean and organized desk that is waiting for them to start the day with a positive and this way motivational mindset. A clean conditions no matter where you are can give you a clear head, readying you for the day’s activities.
Providing your employees with a clean business environment will get your employees in the mood to work to the best of their ability and can give them a sense of pride. Every employee would feel somehow special if they come in the morning and a clean and organized desk is awaiting them. This way you would get them in the way of thinking that today is a new day and it will be the day when they are going to achieve their goals and exceed expectations.
Although it isn’t just the desks and surroundings that need to be perfectly cleaned in every business environment. It has been said that a computer keyboard is dirtier than the average toilet and are the favorite place to live to an estimated 3,295 microbes per square inch, which leads us to the next point.
“A clean environment improves people’s sense of well-being and reduces anxiety” Richard Caines, Mintel analyst.
“Sometimes the biggest gain in productive energy will come from cleaning the cobwebs, dealing with old business, and clearing the desks – cutting loose debris that’s impending forward motion.” – David Allen
Germs thrive in stuffy, warm environments so it is very important to have a good ventilation system or to open windows regularly. To kill germs you need a professional cleaner that actually kills germs such as bacterial cleaners or a professional cleaning company that provides a wide range of cleaning services, such as Top Cleaning GB. You need cleaners that use the needed special products for killing to 90% of germs and can prevent them from spreading, which can also help to reduce illness among your staff.
It’s also very important to choose a professional cleaning company that uses eco-green products and detergents and works with the best professional cleaning machines, in order to achieve the best results and most importantly, to protect yours and your staff’s health.
Perhaps, you are not aware of the fact that there are 5.4 million people with asthma only in the UK, which means asthma affects one in every 11 people and one in five households. Asthma is not just an excuse, for a quarter of a million people with severe asthma, even climbing the stairs can feel like a marathon, never mind going outside their home.
In every 10 seconds, someone is having a potentially life-threatening asthma attack in the UK. Every day, the life of three families are devastated by the death of a loved one to an asthma attack, and tragically two of these deaths are preventable.
Imagine being paralyzed by fear as you struggle to breathe, unable to speak, unable to ask for help. That’s what an asthma attack feels like.
In terms of protecting your employees of asthma attacks and other serious health issues, caused by dust and every other kind of dirt, you should take into consideration these facts and contact a professional cleaning company to clean your environment regularly. As mentioned above, there is nothing more important than not just cleaning your environment, but to have your environment regularly cleaned by professional cleaners with professional machines and all this with the right and safe eco-green products, detergents and cleaning machines, like our employees in Top Cleaning GB do. Otherwise, you could just spread the dust and the other types of dirt around your environment and to worsen the hygiene conditions there and to encourage the potential asthma attacks and other health problems among your staff.
Your company’s image and reputation
Again as yourself, would you like to work for a company that didn’t pride themselves in offering their employees a clean office environment?
Didn’t think so. Dirty business environment and missing organization are these kinds of things that can really hurt a company’s image and hurt its reputation very bad. As about a well-maintained office space, this not only attracts potential employees and clients but keeps the current workforce happy and motivated. It can also impress prospective clients when they come in for a meeting. You are not just selling your products, your services and yourself, you are selling the company as a whole, so make sure you are representing it in the best possible light.

There are numerous of advantages to obtaining a well-maintained business environment or just an office, not only in the short term but in the long term as well. In other words to create a hygiene system or a regime and rules in your environment and your mindset, therefore.
