Office Check: The Importance of Cleanliness in the Workplace
June 24, 2014 by Metro Offices
The cleanliness of the workplace is paramount to maintaining a professional atmosphere and healthy office living. Any business, for that matter, should make it a point to adapt sanitation practices that will serve the welfare of both its staff and its clients.
This article from WeeklyLiving.com explains why a dirty office is a no-no:
If your office space is dusty and unclean, it is much more likely to foster the spread of the flu and other diseases between your employees. The airborne dust will also cause your employees with allergies to suffer from sneezing, sore throat, runny nose and itchy eyes.
When your employees feel sick because of a dirty office, they will need to take time off work to recover. If they are suffering from allergies because of a dirty office they will feel tired and irritated all day long and work and they will not be very productive. Keeping your office clean will avoid this so that your employees stay healthy.
And nowhere this holds strictly true for clinics. After all, people would expect their health center as the first to promote hygiene. Owners of small clinics (or if you are planning to put up one) are advised to assess your sanitation agenda and see how to go about delegating the cleaning tasks so you can focus on delivering excellent service to your clients. You may opt to get an accessible clinic location in the DC Metro area or an office space in Fairfax VA which also offers in-house janitorial services.
We understand that cleanliness matters for a business to gain a steady stream of customers. That’s why each of our available office space in Fairfax is regularly maintained by our efficient janitorial staff. It is our priority to give the people housed in your clinic – both your health personnel and your patients – a sound environment, one that promotes wellness.
