Increase Productivity With A Clean Office

Stepping into a fresh, clean office everyday is bound to make anyone feel more at ease and happier to work. An unorganised and dirty office with overflowing bins, greasy keyboards and dingy windows is simply not a nice place to be – it’s more distracting, less inviting, and is therefore going to be a less productive place to work.

If you’re looking for cleaning companies in London that offer premium office cleaning services, Julius Rutherfoord’s award winning cleaning could be just what you need.

How Does A Clean Office Make Workers More Productive?

Who knew that the simple act of disinfecting could significantly improve workers’ quality of life and productivity? That’s a pretty big statement, and it takes a lot more than a few sprays of disinfectant, but it’s the truth. Without expert cleaning companies in London, such as Julius Rutherfoord, more illnesses would spread throughout the office, germs and bacteria would multiply, and more office workers would take time off work to recover from illnesses that could have been avoided – directly impacting workers’ productivity.

Too often businesses don’t give priority to cleanliness in the office in order to cut costs, but offices can be the ideal place for bacterial specimens. With some cold and flu viruses surviving on surfaces for up to 72 hours, such as phones, door handles and computer keyboards, it makes sense for employers to invest in a cleaning company to minimise the risk of illness.

Office Desk Harbours More Bacteria Than The Average Toilet

Research from a study by the University of Arizona claimed that the average office desk is capable of supporting 10 million microbes. That’s 400 times more than the average toilet seat (which has only 49 microbes per square inch)! Today’s office environment is even more vulnerable to bacteria, since the average worker now has more electronic equipment – all of which attract more dirt! So the next time you eat lunch at your desk, ask yourself how clean is it really?

With all this is mind, it’s safe to say that a clean office is bound to make workers more productive (keeping hydrated and working in more natural light helps too). Not only will they feel more energised and positive, they’ll also be less likely to catch viruses and take time off sick.
