No matter where your office is situated, be it near an industrial area or in a secluded building on the outskirts of your town, dust and dirt will always find their way into your work environment. Dust is everywhere, in- and outdoors. It’s inevitable, therefore regular office cleaning sessions must be in order.
What is dust and where does it come from?
It depends. If we are talking dust from outside, it consists mainly of pollen and spores produced by plants, as well as small particles of soil carried around by the wind. Indoor dust accumulates mainly from human and pet hair, dead skin, textile fibers, and dirt we bring with us from outside, along with our clothes and shoes.
Why is it important to maintain cleanliness on a daily basis?
The number one reason is, of course, employees’ health. A germ-free and hygienic office environment means less sick leaves and more productivity. Other than that, a well maintained work space improves your company’s reputation and overall employee job satisfaction.
