Ah, summer, sand between our toes, the sun’s warm rays on our shoulders, the smell of the grill and the long days that promise to go on forever. It often seems, or at least many of us would like to believe, that summer’s days are truly never ending. Yet, before you know it, those long summer days come to a close, the weather turns cooler, kids return to school, summer turns to fall and the long, cold, wet winters that Ontario is famous for bellows in to add a million things to your already full plate. It can be difficult to address these problems in fall and even spring with wet weather and the bustling, busy season in full swing. So, summer’s natural slow down and vacation time offers an opportunity to give your facility a truly deep cleaning and to tackle those maintenance tasks that you simply couldn’t before. Getting a head start on preventative maintenance and cleaning can be the best way to prepare for the full swing to ‘back to business’ that so often happens in fall.
Summer is an Ideal Time to Address Your Carpets and Floors
Summer’s warmer temperatures, dryer weather and reduced traffic can make it a good time to attend to some deep floor and carpet cleaning. Low moisture carpet cleaning methods can be done nearly any time with minimal down time. And truck mounted hot water extraction carpet cleaning can remove soils, bio-pollutants and other grime and allergens that wear carpet, diminish your facility’s appearance and downgrade indoor air quality. And perhaps, your hard flooring is also in need of some TLC. Are scuffs, dings dirt, grime and dullness making your flooring look less than appealing? Summer is still the best time to address repairs and cleaning for it. Does your commercial cleaning service offer cleaning, polishing, stripping, waxing, and other repair services that are needed to keep your floors looking new and polished? If not, it may be time to contact Universal Cleaners Inc, we offer preventive maintenance packages, special cleanings and even complete refurbishing.
There’s Considerable Evidence That Reinforces the Value That Investing in Cleaning Delivers
It’s easy to make a claim, such as “employees get sick less often in clean workplaces”, but what does that actually look like? We went looking for some additional data points to determine how your business can measure the impacts provided by regular cleaning services.
We did some digging and found some great resources:
- A study of pathogen risk management in hospitals found that cleanliness was a major factor in compliance and effectiveness of safety protocols. If you have a dental office, walk-in clinic, or some other type of medical facility, cleanliness is critical.
- A cleaner workplace greatly reduces both direct and indirect costs associated with employee illness.
- A study of 400 managers and their teams found a 5% increase in productivity in a typical 100-person office.
- Health-related employee absences cost American companies nearly $1,700/yr per employee.
The mountain of evidence that reinforces the value of cleaning in terms of how it impacts your bottom line is growing. This shouldn’t be surprising: healthy people are more productive, more efficient, and cost less.
