Floors are the most used – and abused! – thing in any type of setting.
Whether it’s a restaurant, office, grocery store or your home, the floor gets the most wear and tear – and is often times the most ignored!
Some people choose to wear shoes inside their house for comfort, but are forgetting where they’ve been. Outside, in a public bathroom and/or even worn through the dirt, all those germs are now getting tracked into your home, as well as your office space.
The majority of the time people wipe crumbs, dust and other debris onto the floor without thinking – we all do it! However, this can attract bugs, rodents and bacteria to live on, and thrive off of, what’s on the floor.
This is especially true for an office – particularly the office kitchen and bathroom.
We can’t reiterate enough how important it is to make sure your floors are clean – for the health of your employees, as well as the sake of your business!
Dirty floors coincide with being sick. For employers, this causes more leave days or sick days taken by their employees.
Vacuuming the floors can help, but adding a weekly or bi-weekly disinfecting of your floors will do a higher quality job at decreasing the bacteria, thus leading to fewer sick employees.
Dirty floors can also cause an unwelcoming work environment to your employees and to clients. Dusty, crumb-ridden floors can create a bad image and reputation for your brand and business.
What will your clients think when they walk into an office with a dirty floor? People notice more than you think!
Acids and salt in the winter, as well as harsh chemicals from lawn treatments in the summer, can be tracked into your office, which can ultimately make for a hefty repair expense.
Keeping a clean, sanitized floor can also help increase the longevity of the floors, saving your business money and productivity, as well as contributing to your good reputation, in the long run.
