We Will Keep Your Office Clean in Winter
Keeping your office clean can be a challenge at any time of the year, and especially during the winter. Ice, slush and snow for the outdoors can track their way into your office and make your working environment an unpleasant place to be. Wet winter conditions can also create safety hazards within your office such as slippery floors. The best way to keep your office clean and prevent accidents this winter is to keep a regimented cleaning routine. Here are a few tips to help you keep your office or commercial space clean this winter.
Wipe Down Your Windows
Wiping down your windows may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of winter cleaning, but clear windows can go a long way to making your office cleaner and drier during the colder months. Keeping your windows clean and clear allows more natural light to enter your workspace, which can improve the ambience and mood of your office while helping to absorb excess moisture from carpets and floors. Natural light acts as a drying agent, helping your floor dry faster from slush and snow and preventing mold infestations as well.
Keep an Eye On Your Floors
Your floors will require a lot of attention during the winter. Even if your office has a foyer or front entrance for people to knock the snow off their boots, slush, dirt and other outdoor debris can still make their mark on your floors. Carpets and floors should be vacuumed daily to prevent dirt and moisture from causing permanent damage. Hard floors should also be mopped daily to prevent wet snow and slush from creating a slipping hazard. Having your floors buffed, or even stripped and resealed, can help keep them protected from winter damage.
Stop the Spread of Germs
An unclean office during the winter can contribute to the spread of contagious seasonal illnesses like colds and flus. Viruses and other contagious illnesses can spread quickly in the contained space of the office—this is especially true in the winter. Prevent the spread of germs in your office by regularly disinfecting your work space, including all offices, desks, conference rooms, lunch and lounge areas and bathrooms. Make sure all employees are aware of proper hygienic practices such as hand washing and careful food handling to limit the spread of bacteria in your office.
