5 WAYS JANITORIAL SERVICES HELP KEEP EMPLOYEES PRODUCTIVE

Brandon Acker

Everybody knows that employee productivity is crucial to a company’s success. Hard work, motivation and focus all play a part in creating dynamic, productive workers. This productivity starts with a clean, tidy space to get work done.

A clean work environment can make a world of difference in worker productivity. Learn five ways professional janitorial services can help keep worker productivity up with these tips from the experts at ServiceMaster Clean®.

HOW REGULAR JANITORIAL SERVICES CAN IMPROVE WORKER PRODUCTIVITY

The top five ways janitorial services positively affect productivity in the workplace include the following:

1. EMPLOYEES WILL USE FEWER SICK DAYS

Regularly scheduled office cleanings are a type of nonpharmaceutical intervention (NPI). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NPIs help to eliminate the flu virus from frequently touched items in high-traffic areas, like a facility or workplace. This helps decrease the risk of spreading viruses among employees. If the office stays clean, your staff can stay on track without having to take time off for avoidable illnesses.

Professional janitorial services include proven processes to ensure that all areas at high-risk for contamination get cleaned regularly. That way, your staff can stay focused, on task and present for every scheduled shift.

2. EMPLOYEES WILL BE LESS DISTRACTED

Time is money. At the end of the day, you hire your employees to do their work, not to spend valuable time tidying around the office. However, a cluttered workspace creates a cluttered mind.

With trash cans overflowing, dust everywhere and dirty or disorganized desks, it can be hard to concentrate on getting the job done. Their minds may wander, or they’ll take time to clean up the mess themselves instead of completing their daily tasks. Luckily, janitorial services ensure a consistently clean work environment so your staff can focus and perform their jobs to the best of their ability.

3. EMPLOYEES MAY FEEL HAPPIER

In addition to creating a healthier office, a clean work environment makes for a happier office. With dust-free desks and clean scents, your employees may even feel excited about coming into work, rather than showing up to a filthy, smelly, cluttered mess. When you start using professional cleaning services to keep your work environment clean, check in with your employees to determine if their moods and perception about work has improved.

4. EMPLOYEES WILL SPEND MORE TIME WORKING

According to the Cleaning Management Institute, when a building is cleaned for health standards as opposed to just making it look good, occupants get more work done and generally do a better job. Outsourcing your cleaning services helps ensure that your building is cleaned the right way in order to minimize the spread of illness and infections. Janitorial services also give your employees more time to work on their assignments, rather than spending their working hours cleaning or sanitizing their desks and shares spaces.

5. YOU’LL SAVE MONEY

The benefits of having a janitorial crew seem endless. While janitorial services can help keep your facility healthy, clean and organized, they also help your company save money. Outsourcing cleaning services can help you streamline your expenses since you only pay for services when you need them. You also won’t have to worry about having extra employees on your payroll that require salaries, bonuses, health care and other benefits.

HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR FLOORING IN HIGH-TRAFFIC AREAS

Brandon Acker

Companies can face a lot of foot traffic throughout the day. Dirt, mud and other items can be tracked inside quickly and take a toll on your floors. Carpets can look dirty and matted, while hard-surface floors can appear worn and scuffed. Not only will flooring look dingy, debris build-up can cause permanent damage, including scratches, scuffs and stains, that could tarnish your company’s image.

To keep your business looking its best, use these high-traffic flooring maintenance tips from the experts at ServiceMaster Clean®.

CLEAN ROUTINELY

Routine cleaning at least once a day is key to ensuring the longevity of your floors. High-traffic areas like entrances and lobbies may need to be cleaned every few hours, especially during periods of inclement weather. For example, if you live in an area where roads and sidewalks are regularly salted during the winters, then people are going to be tracking in that salt on their shoes and boots. That salt can quickly damage floors, especially wooden and vinyl ones, and should be cleaned up as often as possible.

Remember that different office flooring options will need to be cleaned differently. Hard-surface floors like hardwood or vinyl should be swept every few hours to remove dirt and debris. After business hours, hard flooring may need to be mopped to clean and sanitize the area. On the other hand, carpets in high-traffic areas should be vacuumed at least once per day to effectively remove set-in debris. Since carpets tend to hold more dirt than wood, vinyl or tile floors, make sure the type of carpet in your facility can stand up to heavy foot traffic.

USE MATS AND RUGS

Placing mats and rugs in high-traffic areas can help prevent floor damage in the following ways:

  • Catch large amounts of dirt, grime and puddles before they are tracked around the facility.

  • Protect against scuff marks and scratches from salt and snow, dirt, sand or other substances.

  • Help employees and customers wipe off their shoes before entering the building.

When putting down mats and rugs, make sure that they are secure and lay flat. A loose or bent mat can be a tripping hazard. If you don’t already have mats near your entryways and other high-traffic areas, look for mats or rugs that can be fastened to the floor for a secure fit. In addition, mats and rugs should be cleaned or changed out on a regular basis, at least once a month (depending on weekly traffic).

DEEP CLEAN ONCE A YEAR

While regular cleaning can help to maintain your flooring, deeper cleans should be performed at least annually. Annual deep cleanings can help your office’s floors in the following ways:

  • Extend your floor’s longevity

  • Restore your flooring to like-new conditions

  • Help maintain and improve the cleanliness and appearance of your floors
