With many workers sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day, it's not uncommon for many offices to be treated as second homes, with notes, stationary and coffee mug stains all over the place.
Although we all like to think we keep our workspace clean, have you considered the value that more regular office cleaning or an extra deep clean can have on the productivity of your team?
Perhaps one of the most important reasons for a clean office. A clear and organised work area can improve motivation and reduce stress, leading to more productivity and potentially fewer sick days.
Fewer distractions could make a big difference in being able to focus during busy working hours.
According to a study summarised by Headspace, the more clutter in your eyeline, the more easily you'll find yourself distracted.
Our daily cleaning services will ensure your workspace is clean and clear, whether it's a small office or a large corporate building, your team can concentrate on getting their best work done in an organised environment.
Dust, grime and spillages can all work its way into even the best-filtered computers, room temperature systems and copiers. Using the correct cleaning method in these sensitive areas could make the difference between a long-lasting computer versus premature failure.
Our sensitive cleaning options don't just cover IT equipment. We have specially training cleaning operatives for industrial equipment, stone renovation and high-level cleaning.
A dirty office could cause clients, visitors and staff to sub-consciously imply that your service or product is unloved too. So, don't just clear up when you know you have visitors, keeping the place clean on a regular basis means staff are more likely to tidy up after themselves and respect the space they work in.
When your space is clean, staff can focus on the work while making a great first impression to guests.
Here at AIM, we understand that first impressions count which is why businesses call on us time and time again to manage and deliver cleaning operations across their offices, buildings and units.
Having a dedicated cleaning team that manages essential areas such as the workspace and kitchen areas would mean an end to the sticky-note "Kitchen Police" culture that we often see, with colleagues complaining about others not cleaning up after themselves.
As mentioned earlier, a cleaner office allows for more respect for the space and people in them.
A study from the US University of Arizona found that the average desk can harbour 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat. If this isn't enough of a reason for you to wipe over your desk, then you can call us in. Our cleaning operatives are ready to tackle your whole office as a one-off sparkle clean or ongoing daily cleaning.
It's not just the desks that need to be cleaned regularly, mugs, fridges, water coolers and copiers can be a haven for general grime as well as germs.
