Colder weather is finally here in Maryland, which means that many businesses are starting to experience employees calling out of work sick and feeling under the weather. While some of this is unavoidable, providing them with a clean environment is one way to cut down on sick absences and ensure the health of your employees. Here are some of the reasons why janitorial services are important in the winter.
Reduce the Spread of Colds and Viruses
While everything is not necessarily transmitted on hard surfaces, many different types of bacteria and viruses are. One of the reasons why janitorial services are important in the winter is because they cut down on the risk of employees getting a cold or a virus due to something in your office. By cutting down on the spread of colds in your workplace, you will benefit from your employees being more productive and feeling good.
Foster Healthy Habits
Professional cleaning sets a positive example in the workplace, as you show your employees that you care about their health and well-being. One of the other reasons why janitorial services are important in the winter is that they set the tone for your office. When your employees know that you care about their health, they are also more likely to be proactive and take better care of their own health.
Clean Up Salt and Water Debris
Finally, janitorial services are important in the winter because of the snow. Many companies and cities use heavy-duty ice melt to prevent slipping and tripping. However, this can lead to winter salt and residue coating your floors and facility. Over time, this can do permanent damage to the surface of your flooring. A professional cleaning will prevent this damage and make sure that your facility is not damaged due to winter snow and salt.
