Cleaning after a crime

After we had our home burgled I had to clean it from top to bottom. It felt kind of dirty at home, as though all of our possession had been contaminated by the crime. I know that everyone whose home is broken into or the victim of a crime at home goes through similar feelings of creepiness and a need to clean. I thought it might be useful to start a blog to discuss how to clean the house or the best cleaning services to use to help your house feel like a home again. It should be useful to anyone who has gone through a bad experience and needs a fresh start in their own beloved home.

Two reasons to have your commercial office professionally cleaned on a regular basis

If you own a commercial office, you should arrange for a professional who provides office cleaning services to clean your premises regularly. Carry on reading to learn why.

1. Reduce the frequency of colds, the flu and other contagious illnesses

A busy, air-conditioned office is the perfect haven for the viruses and bacteria that cause contagious illnesses. If even one slightly-ill person comes into work with some pathogens on their hands, and then proceeds to touch (and therefore contaminate) the office's door handles, desks, computer keyboards and pens, several other people in the office could end up being exposed to those pathogens and fall ill as a result.

Having multiple employees call in sick simultaneously as a result of catching a cold, a stomach bug or another contagious illness could have a serious impact on your office's productivity levels, as well as your enterprise's financial well-being. As such, it is important to do what you can to reduce the frequency with which your employees get ill. One way to do this is to have a cleaner sanitise your entire office space on a daily basis. Disinfecting all of the above-mentioned surfaces every day will kill off any pathogens in these areas and in doing so, will prevent your employees from being exposed to these pathogens.

In short, hiring an office cleaner could potentially save you money, by helping to keep your employees healthy.

2. Boost morale in your workplace

If an office is unclean, it can affect workplace morale. People are affected by their surroundings, and your employees' moods and levels of motivation are likely to drop if they have to work in a filthy space. Having to work in an office where, for example, the carpets are dirty and malodorous, the desks are stained and dusty, and the windows are covered in a thick film of grime, is likely to be very depressing.

Allowing your premises to become this dirty may also give your employees the impression that you don't care enough about them to provide them with a clean and pleasant work environment. This, too, may affect morale. Given this, if you want to ensure that your employees feel happy, productive and motivated when they're at work, it's worth having your office space cleaned by a professional on a regular basis.

Having your premises hoovered, dusted and sanitised several times a week will ensure that it never becomes so dirty that it begins to lower workplace morale.
