How Dirty Floors Could Be Hurting Your Business
Thursday, December 31, 2020
Most people tend to ignore what’s beneath their feet. This happens both in residential and business premises. When doing the cleaning, floors are given less attention as compared to other parts of the room. Floors, regardless of the material used, are usually affected by dirt, dust, and debris. Everything that is not discarded correctly ends up on the floor. It may seem to be a minor issue, but the repercussions of having dirty floors can hurt your business in various ways. Let’s look at some of the ways that your business may be affected.
1. Affects the health of employees
Dirty floors go hand in hand with sick time. The dirtier the floor, the more the sick days off. This is because such floors are homes to disease-causing pathogens as viruses and bacteria. Given that the dirt gives them a conducive environment to reproduce, they can multiply themselves at an exponential rate and the first people to suffer from the consequences will be the people working in the office.
2. Reduced productivity
It is more than obvious that unhealthy employees are less productive. They don’t have the energy or the vigor to perform well at work. Employees who are more concerned about their health issues tend to pay less attention to their core tasks and as a result are less productive.Another way that dirty floors can hurt your business when it comes to productivity, is their contribution to the poor working environment. How does it feel to work in a room that has a dusty floor? Dirty floors can lead to poor employee morale and lower productivity levels.
3. Damages your brand image
As a business, you have a brand that you should protect. Fortunately, it only takes a small matter such as cleanliness to ruin your image and reputation. Keep in mind that your employees are not the only people who suffer the consequences of dirty floors. Other people such as suppliers, customers, and even potential business partners come into the premises on a regular basis. What will they think when they see how the floor of your workplace looks filthy?
4. Dirty floors get damaged easily
A dirty floor has a shorter lifespan, regardless of its material. The accumulation of dirt and other unwanted material on the floor can corrode its surface or cause structural damage. Some debris may even contain acid or chemicals that can cause immense damage to the floor, especially when left without being removed for an extended period. This will force you to spend a significant amount of money to deal with repair expenses, something that you could have avoided if you had scheduled regular professional floor cleanings.
5. Commercial floor cleaning
Commercial floor cleaning service can help you avoid all the above effects of dirty floors. It’s more than just removing dirt. The process includes sanitizing the floors and making them germ- free. Commercial floor cleaners combine their special skills and the right cleaning products to ensure that the job is done to perfection. They make the floors to sparkle.
