How Cleanliness Affects Your Workplace

As a business owner or manager, you undoubtedly have a lot of tasks to juggle, people to manage, and deals to seal. As such, office cleanliness is not something you’re likely to see as a foremost concern. However, cleanliness and the lack thereof can have some pretty significant impacts on your employees and overall productivity — even when you’re not operating a customer-front type of business. So if you haven’t already considered the advantages of hiring commercial janitorial services, then consider the following ways in which cleanliness affects the workplace:

How Cleanliness Affects Your Workplace

  • Increased productivity. There have been many studies, just like this one, that have shown a cleaner workplace environment translates to improved productivity. The fact of the matter is that while yes, a very few select individuals will be high-performers in a chaotic environment, the vast majority of employees need a clean and orderly area. A clean workplace projects the idea of focus and professionalism and employees within such a workplace will operate more effectively with greater productivity. In contrast, a messy, dirty, and otherwise chaotic workplace environment will have a detrimental psychological effect that can, and often will, negatively impact a business’s bottom line.
  • Improved employee health. A clean environment is a healthy one. But to be truly clean requires more than just a quick superficial clean. Dust, mold spores, mildew, and bacteria can build-up anywhere and often do so in hidden spaces such as beneath counters and desks. All of these are particulates that can cause health issues like respiratory problems and similar illnesses which leads to sick employees who require health absences. A big part of commercial janitorial services is zeroing in on those less visible surfaces and ensuring they, as with the rest of the building, are thoroughly cleaned of all undesired particulates so that the business enjoys a healthier workspace.
  • Better first impressions. All businesses regardless of industry are likely to host clients, vendors, and potential partners at some point in their lifespan. Even if your employees don’t deal with customers on a day-to-day basis, it is important to create a clean environment as though they do. First impressions are everything and when you have a client, potential new hire, vendor, or similar guest walk into your commercial building, you want to make a strong impression, an impression that says you care for your employees and your work. A clean and orderly workspace does just that.
