When one of your staff members catches the common cold, there’s a very good chance that they can spread that cold to other staff members, resulting in less production or even days missed due to sickness. For management, that can be a real roadblock to hitting goals.
Think of your building in the same manner. If your building is sick, the viruses can be spread to your staff, leaving management once again struggling to get the job done.
Having a healthy building is critical to the health of your staff and the health of your business. That’s where professional janitorial services come in. Simply wiping counters off when they are dirty or picking up trash may keep the building looking okay, but it’s not doing anything for the health of the people who work there.
Professional commercial cleaning companies understand how to use the right chemicals for the right amount of time in order to keep your building and employees feeling right. All chemicals have a dwell time listed on their label. That’s the amount of time the chemical needs to sit on the surface in order to kill the germs. If your commercial cleaning company or in-house janitor is simply spraying and immediately wiping, there’s not enough contact time to let the chemical do its job.
It’s not just chemicals that keep your building healthy. Commercial cleaning pro’s use microfiber products to improve the effectiveness of their cleaning. From mops to cloths, microfiber is the best tool for the job. Also, HEPA filter vacuums are another essential tool used by commercial cleaning companies. The word “HEPA” stands for high efficiency particulate air and in order for a filter to be rated as HEPA it must retain all particles .3 microns in size or larger at an efficiency level of 99.97%.
Commercial cleaning is more than just appearance. The pro’s know it’s all about keeping your building healthy, thus keeping your employees healthy. From the right chemicals and dwell times to microfiber and HEPA filters, make sure that your commercial cleaning provider has the knowledge and tools to keep your building healthy.
