The people who work for you spend a massive amount of their waking time in your office. On average people work a 40 hour week, so once you factor in arrival and leaving time, it’s reasonable to suppose that they’re spending at least half their waking weekly hours in your building. And this is the real reason why office carpet cleaning London is so important to your business.
Yes, carpet cleaning helps reduce dust in the air (which gets into the photocopier and the hard drives of your office PCs). And yes, cleaning the carpets means keeping those carpets for longer, so you get more money out of your overall furnishing expenditure. But the most important effect of all is that your employees stay healthier, work better and are generally happier.
A happy employee is a productive employee. None of us are able to remain happy for long in an untidy or unpleasant space, despite what our teenage children may think. And if we’re constantly getting ill or feeling run down because we are inhaling all sorts of bacteria from the floor, then our overall outlook isn’t going to remain very chipper.
By engaging a professional office carpet cleaning London firm on a regular basis, you keep bacteria and dirt to a minimum – plus you ensure your office smells and looks great at all times of year.
Smell is one of the most pervasive of senses – and when we sense something smells wrong, we’re not happy until it’s put right. Easy if the offending article is a bin, less so if it is the carpet. Having your carpets regularly cleaned means all the little food particles that get stuck in the fibres over the course of a normal day are steamed out and sucked up – so no more invisible rotting bits of sandwich to give the office an unfortunate atmosphere.
Office carpet cleaning London removes dirt, bacteria and stains. Bacteria, along with dirt and dust, rise from the floor when the office heats up (the action of the hot air drags them out of the nap unless they are heavily ingrained. They circulate during the day, breathed in by unsuspecting workers, before settling back down when the heating goes off at night.
Additionally, the average carpet is home to an alarming number of mites and other microscopic organisms. Having it cleaned keeps eggs and active animals at bay, ensuring the carpet is free from little munchers working their way through the underlay or the carpet fibres.
It might surprise some that the cleanliness of their carpet is directly related to the happiness and productivity of their workers. Often that’s just because you get used to a carpet as it is, so the dirt isn’t noticed until it has gone. Get it cleaned and enjoy a newer, more fresh and productive world.
