Winter and Autumn not only brings low temperatures and unpredictable (wet) weather, but also the challenge of keeping your office environment clean, dry and safe for your employees and customers. Wet weather conditions have a significant effect on the increase of moisture and dirt that is brought indoors which can affect your company’s cleaning regime, potentially having an impact on people’s health. Whether it’s soil or damp or a common cold spreading through the office – there are some steps that can be taken in order to keep it clean and safe.
Clean And Dry Floors
Maintaining clean and dry floors is one of the biggest challenges over the Autumn and Winter seasons. Carpets and floors can easily get wet by soil, snow, water and salt or grit being brought inside on people’s shoes. Because of that, floors might require an increase in regular maintenance: more frequent vacuuming and moping would be the obvious option. However, an effective barrier matting system can significantly reduce the amount of dirt and moisture tracked into the building as well as help minimise the risk of slip accidents caused by wet flooring. Contact our expert team to discuss your barrier matting needs that can assist with reducing the maintenance costs and improve the appearance of the internal flooring.
Clutter Free Desks and Other Areas
Ever changing winter weather goes hand in hand with common colds and coughs. Suddenly your office fills up with tissues, cough and flue medicine, and feels more like a germ breading ground than a healthy working environment. Simple things like removing clutter from your desk, regularly cleaning surfaces with antibacterial spray and washing your hands more frequently can make a significant difference. Also, make sure that the keyboards along with other PC parts and telephones are routinely cleaned as that can help prevent spreading the germs across the office.
Windows tends to get forgotten during winter, however, they are an essential element to maintaining a clean office. It is important to make sure that your office windows are cleaned regularly so that sufficient sunlight can get through to keep the natural light levels high.
