Why is it important to clean during spring?
When it is wet and generally horrible outside much like the typical Melbourne weather we so often endure until we enjoy some sunshine in November, we tend to spend more time indoors. This means that our indoor environment has been more exposed to dirt and dust accumulated from our clothes, shoes and general presence. Dust can be detrimental to our health by reducing air quality and creating a greater risk for allergens to be inhaled and hence enter our body. Therefore it is important to regularly clean and organise your office space during this time of year.
With more time spent indoors, there is likely to be more dirt spread through the office and more people eating lunch and snacks inside, leaving crumbs all over the floors. So keeping the carpets clean and maintained during these periods is important.
Regular vacuuming is an easy way to ensure all the dust mites and allergens do not settle into the carpet where it can remain for months. When dust settles into the carpet, the air quality of your office space can change, and not for the better. Increased dust and grime in the area or in the floor can release more allergens into the air and can ultimately bring upon the onset of illness within staff through inhalation. This can lead to more staff members becoming sick and requesting days off which in turn decreases productivity within your business. This, however, can be easily avoided through regular vacuuming and cleaning.
Sometimes it can also be helpful to get a professional carpet cleaner to provide a more efficient clean of your floors. In most cases this can be the best method as a team of workers know what is required and will get the job done efficiently. These services can leave your carpets much cleaner and fresher than a normal vacuum will, and hence will increase the overall air quality and health of staff in your office.
Floors experience the same conditions as carpets do during the spring time. With a lot of rain and wet weather conditions, there is likely to be a lot of mud making its way into your work place and onto the floors. This is on top of all the dust that had already accumulated onto the ground of your office. The best, cost effective way of keeping your office floors clean is simply to mop with an eco friendly polish or detergent. This rids all signs of mud, grime and dust on your floors, keeping them clean and presentable. Cleaning companies have the best equipment when it comes to floors, and are sure to keep them spotless and shiny all year round.
In Spring, windows can often be neglected. Windows collect the most grime the easiest. This is because of the fact that outside conditions can hit them directly. It is important not to forget to clean the windows as they allow for sunlight to enter into your office. This not only brightens your work space but can also generate heat into your office and ultimately reduce your reliance on heating systems, therefore reducing power bills. If left ignored, windows are more prone to deterioration and are likely to degrade quickly over time if they are exposed to dirt and grime. So in order to increase the lifespan of your office windows, ensure they are cleaned regularly through out the year, but especially during spring as rain and dirt are more evident during this time.
