Why It’s Important to Have a Clean Workspace

Maintaining a clean working space can be especially difficult when people bring in a mixture of mud, snow and rain along with their boots and Monday blues. When the priority is the business and making more sales, we often overlook simple things like keeping up with a cleaning routine. At Guardian, we believe that your focus should be your work and the rest should be left to us.

Use It Or Lose It

First impressions almost always decide whether or not there are going to be any more impressions. You might have heard the phrase, “Your environment is the reflection of your state of mind,” but did you ever wonder if the environment could make or break a deal? An unclean space indicates negligence and less attention to detail sending out a negative message to customers. The importance of hiring a professional service team for tasks like general maintenance, window cleaning, carpet and floor cleaning, may not necessarily stand out to you but definitely stands out the customer.

At Guardian, we believe in implementing the latest technology to maximize the effectiveness and reduce costs. The Imop is a quicker, faster and more efficient tool that helps cut costs which we can then pass on to our clients.

Health Before Wealth

Maintaining a clean workspace will prevent the spread of disease and illnesses. In 2014, a research revealed that germs on a single doorknob can spread to 40-60 percent of workers and visitors within just 2-4 hours. Floors, doorknobs, desks, bathrooms and walls should be thoroughly and frequently cleaned to prevent an epidemic of multiple sick leaves.
In 2012 alone, nearly 3 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses were reported by private industry employers. A clean and organized office space would prevent falls, slips and injuries that could easily be avoided.

Do It For The Smiles

Employees are more productive when their workspace feels more organized and clean. Having your office frequently cleaned would make your employees feel like you care and increase their productivity eventually.

According to a survey conducted in 2017, 89 percent of Americans believe the condition of a workplace restroom is one indicator of how a company values its workforce. In short, a cleaner environment increases employee morale leading to more productive workforce and resulting in increased sales. Wasn’t that the point anyways?
