Once COVID19 hit us all, working in person moved to remote working across the globe. We are now slowly getting back to working in offices but it is important to keep track of employees’ health as well.
Why? Simply put, when your employees need to miss work frequently due to sickness caused by dust it hurts your business’s productivity. It is imperative to have your office cleaned regularly by professional cleaning services Sharjah that helps promote healthier, happier, and more productive employees.
The first question is do you have a regular cleaning company service for your office? If so, how good is the cleaning service? It is healthy to evaluate your cleaning service from time to time. It keeps you from paying for a not-so-effective service. We’ll take you through some tips for evaluating your commercial cleaning company service.
Several employees often report that the restrooms are not maintained properly by cleaning crews. Clean restrooms are essential for slowing down the spread of germs and bacteria. Additionally, they should be stocked with fresh hand soap, paper towels, and other items. They should be scented well to evoke a refreshed feeling. If a restroom in your office lacks any of these qualities, it can harm your reputation in the eyes of any clients who visit the office (along with making them sick as well).
Check for Dust
For any cleaning service dusting is one of the most fundamental services. It can be quite dangerous if neglected. Accumulation of too much dust can cause or trigger, or worsen respiratory illnesses, allergies. Not to mention looks quite unprofessional. Keep an eye out for window sills, cabinets, and shelving for even thin layers of dust that shouldn’t be there. If the current cleaning service can’t even keep up this most basic of services, you should consider looking at hiring a different cleaning company.
Carpets look lovely at first, and then eventually they become stained from a few days of steady foot traffic. They undergo a lot of stress – dirt gets tracked from outside, dampness from wet shoes, and spills from coffee and food. The dirt can contain parasites that are dangerous to your employee’s overall health. If dirt, dampness, and spills are not dealt with immediately, can set in to become permanent stains, giving the carpet a dirty look. Take a closer look at your carpets for any dark spots that may have been there for a while or any strange smells. By doing this you can determine whether your cleaning service is carrying out the carpet cleaning or not.
Trash Can Inspection
Never ever let trash pile up as it attracts pests like rodents and cockroaches. Roaches especially are known to trigger and worsen respiratory conditions. The trash can also breed harmful germs and bacteria which can make everyone sick, especially if it’s in the office pantry area. Plus, they give out an awful odor, making employees and customers alike hold their breath in disgust. This is one of the basic tasks that any cleaning service company must include. If you see even a single trash can overflowing with trash, your cleaning service is not doing its job.
Evaluate Customer Service
Everyone deserves one chance to fix a problem. Similarly, if you find your cleaning service company is lacking in one of the tasks, don’t immediately drop them. Test them in another area how they respond to customer service. Raise your concerns and note the response you receive. They must listen to them with a friendly ear and the problem area should be taken care of right away. If you continue to see negligence, the company is not taking your concerns seriously. In that case, partner with another cleaning company that can truly take care of your office cleaning requirements.
