Understanding the distinctions between cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting is crucial for maintaining a clean and healthy environment in your business. These three tiers of cleaning serve different purposes in terms of removing dirt, reducing germs, and preventing the spread of diseases. The level of cleaning that you will need in your office, warehouse, medical facility, or retail store will depend on the type of business that you are and the clientele that you serve.
Amidst all the chaos and uncertainties of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, one of the first things to open back up is office buildings. We’ve managed to keep our homes clean and protect ourselves within comfortable environments, but many are wondering how to do this at their very own desk upon returning to work. What was once a familiar setting can now feel foreign as the pandemic rages on. This is why we have listed the top five tips for sanitizing your desk and office space.

It’s time to hire an office cleaning service. At some point, the threat of the coronavirus is going to pass. But the memory of this outbreak and the reality of that infectious germs are a part of everyday life, will continue to be with us.
If you want to keep your employees healthy and coming to work, you want to make sure your workplace uses green cleaning practices.
We probably don’t need to say why keeping your workplace free of germs, in this age of the Coronavirus and the flu. Plus, you probably don’t need much persuading that green cleaning is smart and necessary. You probably got the memo a long time ago, that the environment is important. Nobody wants dangerous chemicals seeping into the soil and eventually our waterways.
It may be unfair, but we often judge people who are messy. For instance, if you’re interviewing somebody for a job interview, and they have a mustard stain on their shirt and haven’t combed their hair, you’re probably going to think they aren’t the best person for this position. For all you know, a hot dog vendor attacked your candidate just before the interview, and got mustard on his or her outfit, but you’re not likely to consider that, are you? Nope, you’re going to think, “I’m not hiring this joker.”
Unfair, but true – we form opinions when we see an unkempt mess.
Few people would disagree that it’s important to be clean, and if you own a business, you probably don’t need much persuading. After all, if you run an enterprise that looks like a dump, you know very well that your customers (or soon-to-be ex-customers) will give you an earful.
But keeping your business clean is especially vital during the winter. We’re in the midst of flu season, and that’s nothing to sneeze over. In fact, the flu is said to cost the country 7 billion a year in sick days and productivity.
Fall and Winter months are notoriously spent indoors for most of us. During these months, Americans spend over 90% of our time inside. Besides the spread of the typical colds, flus and “Sick Building Syndrome” that can run rampant during this time, allergies can wreak havoc on our health, well-being and productivity.
Cold and Flu Season is here... What are you doing to keep your business healthy this year?
Eco-friendliness is on many people's minds these days, and one place where it's easy to make more environmentally friendly decisions is in the workplace. By changing up some simple daily habits and shifting routines, it's easy to help ensure your office taxes the environment as little as possible. Here are some simple steps you can take to go green at work.
The average person spends 90% of their day indoors, and this amount increases during the winter months. Paints, carpets, furniture, plastics, HVAC systems and cleaners all can contain certain levels of toxicity often in the form of Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs) which can in turn increase indoor pollution levels to 5-10x that of outdoors.
Cooler weather is upon us and most of the US has had the heat on for a few weeks now. Along with spending more time warm and indoors with windows sealed, late November through December is a high travel time which exposes all of our customers and employees to new germs; which allows businesses and offices to become incubators for these pathogens to spread. Taking few key steps during the next few months can keep your business healthy and make sure you and your employees can remain productive in this already hectic time of the year!
