The importance of a clean workplace

We’ve all heard the saying ‘first impressions last’, and this is precisely why any office space should be cleaned regularly. Because it’s not only important to keep your working environment clean and tidy for the people working in it, but also essential to make a good first impression for those visiting your business premises.

In this blog, we want to highlight the 5 areas you should focus on in order for your business to give the best first impression possible…

1. Window cleaning

The exterior of a building is paramount in creating a good first impression, because it’s the first thing people see when approaching your workplace. Clean windows show investment into the business and respect for the people working there, grey windows do the opposite! So, by Keeping your windows consistently clean, you will not only help improve the look of your building from the outside, it will also create a more comfortable atmosphere inside by allowing in more natural light.

2. Reception Area

The reception area is where your guests first arrive when visiting your business and people will therefore form an instant impression of a venue depending on this room. So regular cleaning can help ensure that first impression is always a good one! 

3. Toilets

Toilet cleanliness is arguably the most important area to address when it comes to workplace cleanliness. Not only do they generally require more thorough cleaning, but greater care is needed to ensure that the bacteria and germs from high-touch surfaces like the door handles and toilet seats are removed with disinfectant.

4. Office Kitchen

Most offices have a kitchen area for employees to relax, prepare their lunch and eat. However, if you have a large team of employees, then there will likely be quite a lot of mess left behind. Staff are often asked to clean up after themselves, but this does not always happen and over time spills become sticky and difficult to remove. So, a kitchen clean can focus on the hygiene requirements needed for food preparation areas like worktops and also important pieces of equipment like fridges, microwaves and coffee machines that all need careful cleaning and sterilisation.

5. Carpet Cleaning

Employees and visitors walk over your carpets every day and as a result, they will be full of dust, dirt and bacteria, even if you can’t see it! But our team of professional and highly experienced cleaners use the most effective and innovative machinery and solutions to keep carpets at a peak level of cleanliness which also supports their longevity. This means that in the long run you will save money, as they will not need to be replaced as often.
