the benefits of a clean officeWhen know that when you run a business, you’ve very busy and have a lot on your mind. The cleanliness of your office might not cross your mind. People just sit on the computer all day, they’re not making messes, right? Even if your office seems pretty clean on the surface, it can harbor germs and allergens can can make your employees sick and less productive, especially if your office has carpet and upholstery. Read on to find out some of the reasons that cleaning your carpets should be on your mind.

Reduce health issues.  From the floors to your keyboard, from the door handles to the bathroom, your office can get pretty gross over time – and we’re not just talking dirt. Grime like dust, dander, bacteria, and allergens collect virtually everywhere. It is important that you clean regularly, even in a smaller office. Occasionally an even deeper cleaning is necessary, like that from Chem-Dry Windy City. In fact, our cleaning formula removes 98% of common allergens from carpet and upholstery and removes 89% of all airborne bacteria. This improved air quality will lead to overall health benefits, like your employees suffering from less allergies and getting sick less often. 

Maintain professionalism. If meet with customers in your office, it is essential that your office is clean and professional. Customers tend to notice things that we don’t because we’re around them everyday. For explore, that stain in the carpet by the water cooler that you forgot about, they notice that. And even though we’re told not to judge a book by the cover, it’s true that many customers will subconsciously make business decisions based off the appearance of your business. Ensure that your customers see you as a professional company by maintaining a clean environment. 

Promote psychological benefits. A clean office does’t just have a positive psychological effect on customers; it benefits employees too! As Americans, we spend an average of 33% of our lifetimes working! That’s a lot of time spent in the office, and if the office is dirty, that can really take a psychological toll on an employee. On the other hand, if the office is clean, people will enjoy being there more, they will be less stressed, and they will have a greater desire to work hard. Think about it, wold you rather spend time in a pristine, clean environment or one that is dusty and dirty? Your employees feel the same way. 

Boost productivity. One reason that offices don’t get clean regularly is that everyone is too busy doing their jobs to stop and clean the office. It would ruin the flow of productivity. But if the psychological benefits really boost productivity in the long run, then isn’t worth it?
