Light switches, copy machines, telephones, elevator buttons and hand rails are just a few of the surfaces that harbor the nasty bugs that cause illness and cost your business lots of money in sick time and loss of productivity. Airborne pathogens that aggravate respiratory conditions like rhinitis, sinusitis and asthma, float in the air until they settle on floors and other surfaces only to rise again when they are disturbed. The cold and flu season is quickly approaching, so it’s a good time to plan for reducing the amount of time employees lose at work due to contagious diseases. Office cleaning Mississauga services can play a big role in keeping illness at bay!
Office cleaning is not just about emptying trash, vacuuming and surface cleaning any more. Office cleaning services that fight back against germs and bacteria by using technology and chemistry ensure a healthier work environment, and office cleaning companies that use best practices in applying the latest in technology will save you and your employees’ time and money. In fact, the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association (ISSA) claims that proper office cleaning will reduce employees’ probability of catching the common cold or influenza by 80%!
