3 of the most shocking places germs are hiding in your work place

3 of the most shocking places germs are hiding in your work place 

 

 

 

Wash the windows, sweep the floors, sanitize surfaces in the bathroom – we all know the basics of cleaning an office space.

 

But what about the areas you aren't even thinking about? Dirt and bacteria tend to hide in those places that rarely cross our minds, creating an unhealthy and unpleasant environment for customers and staff.

 

Don't let your business suffer from weak, unprofessional cleaning – here are three spots to make sure you don't miss.

 

 

1.  THE WALLS

 

Walls hold onto dust and grime, causing them to look unattractive over time.

 

Cleaning your walls regularly will keep your workplace looking bright and open. It will also help protect the walls themselves, maintaining their life expectancy and reducing the need to repaint.

 

Dirty walls don't just look bad either – they can also worsen air quality. Pollutants, dirt, oils, allergens and the dust from HVAC systems all absorb into your walls and make their way into the air you breathe every day.

 

While you can spot clean walls on your own, you need professional cleaning products and special equipment to do the job effectively. Make sure you ask your commercial cleaning service to do this very important service at least once a year to prevent build-up.

 

Grime and dirt can build up on office walls if they aren't cleaned regularly.

 

 

2. Buttons

 

Think about how many times you use buttons throughout the day. Before noon, most people have already pressed buttons on their phone, keyboard, microwave and coffee machine.

 

Lift buttons have as much as 100 times more bacteria than a toilet seat.  That's why it is so essential to hire a commercial cleaning company who is attentive to even the smallest surfaces in your office.

 

 

3. Shared kitchen appliances

 

The kitchen in your office may look pretty clean. The dishes are put away, the benches have been wiped down – but what about the appliances themselves?

 

Dirty appliances in your office kitchen could be making you sick.

Things like your communal microwave, refrigerator, toaster and coffee machine are often overlooked in routine kitchen cleanings. We get it – it all comes down the tragedy of the commons. No one technically owns these appliances, so nobody takes the time to thoroughly scrub them between use. Instead, we live in denial – hoping a co-worker will step up to the task.

The result? Germ ridden coffee machines and other appliances.

OFFICE CLEANING MYTHS

 

Cleaning the house is one thing, but cleaning the office is quite another. No matter what products you use, or how much time you seem to schedule yourself to do it, no one truly wants to clean the office themselves. Trying to figure out who to hire to help you clean can be tricky, especially when you start to believe some of the industry’s biggest myths.

Commercial cleaning is too expensive. I can’t trust them inside my building. I don’t need my office cleaned. As ridiculous as some of the myths may be, people believe them, and we are here to break the trend. Remember, you don’t have to believe everything you hear. Here are some of the most common myths about office cleaning:

 

 

MYTH: I CAN DO IT MYSELF

Wrong, so very wrong. While we tip our hats to the thought, there is no way that one person can handle cleaning the office all on their own while trying to manage the other countless tasks at hand. But that’s what your employees are for right? Guess again. We have been in business for over 50 years and we have come to understand that many business owners do not use commercial cleaning services because they think that they can rely on their employees to help with the menial tasks.


While it would be nice, and frankly, quite helpful, you cannot rely on your employees to take out their trash, clean out the fridge, wipe counter off, and sanitize the bathroom. Your employees want to do other things with their personal time, not help you clean their workspace. While you may be able to convince your team to take their trash out on Friday, chances are, that’s about as much as you’ll get out of them.

 

The good news is, you can always count on us! Professional, friendly and always ready to help, we offer our office cleaning services any day, anytime, whenever you need us the most.

 

 

MYTH: OFFICE CLEANING IS NOT IMPORTANT

So maybe office cleaning is not as important as remembering to pick your kids up at daycare, but it is up there on your list of things you need to do. As the first thing someone notices when they walk into your business, the cleanliness of your office represents the quality of the service that you provide. Neglecting to clean your office can impact a potential customer’s decision to work with you, as well as reduce the productivity of your employees.

 

 

 

MYTH: I DO NOT NEED COMMERCIAL GRADE PRODUCTS

Nice try. Just because you have spare cleaning products at home, does not mean you should bring them into the office and try to do a quick wipe down. Not only are you going to need much more than what you have on hand, but many cleaning products on the market are actually pretty harmful to you, your employees, your property, and the environment.

 

Impacting the indoor air quality and potentially harming your workstation surfaces, hiring a professional office cleaning company is a sure way to guarantee you are left with a spotless, safe, and sanitary environment.

Are you Prepared for Hurricane Harvey?!

Hurricane Harvey is dangerously approaching the Texas Coast and is an extremely dangerous flood threat for Texas and Louisiana. SanServe Janitorial will be working around-the-clock to ensure that our customers are kept safe and dry.  SanServe Janitorial hopes that you and your love ones stay safe through Hurricane Harvey.

SanServe Janitorial would like to offer some helpful tips how you can safely prevent long term damage after flooding because flood waters not only cause visible damage but also hidden damage to your building.  Dangerous bacteria can grow and prosper from still water and cause you and your employee’s major health problems. After calling your insurance company to see what is covered in your policy, try some of these tips on how to avoid such damage to your building.

Immediately extract water when possible. When water is standing still, it provides a breeding ground for germs and bacteria especially in carpeting.  Once the water is extracted, call your local janitorial company to perform a deep cleaning to your carpets.

Use your air conditioner and if possible, a de-humidifier to reduce moisture by drying out the air inside your home. This is the best way to stop the bacteria from growing inside your building because the bacteria needs humid conditions in order to grow. It can take weeks for flood soaked items to dry.

Properly clean and disinfect the items that came in contact with the flood water within 48 hours, otherwise dispose as much as you can of absorbent material items. This is an important part of water damage clean-up.  If it is not cleaned properly, it can cause the bacteria to hide in them and will affect the quality of air in your building.

Call your janitorial company to properly wash and disinfect walls, floors, shelves and effected items. Your janitorial service provider will take care of your floor care needs and can offer any additional water clean-up service to get your building back to where it needs to be!

This is a great opportunity to clear out the items you no longer need and can start a fresh 2016!  Here is a Spring Cleaning Checklist and a few tips on how to go about spring cleaning your office:

 

Keep only what is need

Our work spaces tend to be full of… stuff.  So look around and ask yourself, “do I need these or will I be needing it in the near future?” It’s likely you will not so time to toss it!  It will be more productive to have that extra space for yourself and your workers to breathe and move around in. 

A clean and organized office is visually pleasing to your clients and visitors…. Don’t forget, your clients may think an office reflects the work you are producing.

 

Clear desks

Allow yourself a couple minutes at the end of the day to dispose of food containers, wrappers, coffee cups, and any other trash. Then go through the files and paperwork that are still sitting on your desk and sort them, file them, and put them where they need to go. No more “oh, I’ll take care of it tomorrow.” 

 

Paper

Do we really need to print out all those unnecessary reports and old agendas? By scaling back on printing, or printing double-sided when you need a hard copy, you’ll reduce those stacks of paper that only end up piled up on your desk. Plus the trees will thank you!

 

Sort your inbox

Cleaning out your digital clutter is essential— the more organized your computer/files are, the easier it will be for you to find what you need and be more efficient. From updating contacts, making sure you are operating on the latest software upgrades, uninstalling programs that you do not use, organizing your documents that you’ll need again to the cloud or memory stick and trashing or archiving the rest, to deleting/sorting emails.  Spring comes once a year, and thank goodness so does digital spring cleaning.

 

Call the professionals

Your cleaning company can take care of the rest, but take extra responsibility for the personal and shared spaces you use on a day-to-day basis. Keeping your office clean and organized will not only help you stay sane and on track, but most importantly, it will keep your productivity level high. 

If you are ready to let us take care of the rest, call us for today for a free estimate for your janitorial needs! 1-800-274-8464
