We understand that the intense competition in your industry makes you stay busy always trying to be ahead of the race. This allows you little time to pay adequate attention to the floor of your office space. After all, you have got plenty of works to do, and the floor doesn’t matter. Or does it?
Do you know that the floor of your working space plays a crucial role in the growth of your business, your general productivity and how your business is perceived by clients? You won’t be blamed if you don’t know; countless others don’t know too.
In this piece, Phronesis Cleaning, a cleaning service provider in Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria highlights the negative effects of dirty floors on your business.
An Unhealthy Employee means Low Productivity
Dirty floors and carpets have harmful health effects. They harbor harmful microbes, dirt, grease, and mold which accumulates on tiles and in grout resulting in foul odors which reduces air quality. The longer your carpet or any other type of floor have gone between cleaning, the more the accumulation of these harmful organisms. These dangerous materials can cause diseases and cross infections for your employees which will affect your employees’ productivity. When you care for your employees’ working environment by cleaning your floor regularly, they’ll surely be at their best productivity.
Negative Brand Image
The first thing one notices about your company when they walk into your business area is your floor! It creates a wrong first impression if your customers, business partners or investors walk in on wet floors as is the case of the rainy season or dusty floors as we will soon experience with the harmattan fast approaching. However, taking adequate care of your floor passes a message that you can take care of your business, including taking care of what brought the individual to your office.
You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Give your brand a positive image!
Increased Emergency Expenditure
Which will you instead go for?
Spending a token to keep your floor clean or paying enormously to change the entire floor. As the wise businessperson that you are, undoubtedly you chose the former.
It’s no news that money is hard to come by. Flooring, on the other hand, is not cheap. Dirty and Unkept floors are known to have shorter lifespans than floors that are professionally taken care of, particularly by a professional cleaning company.
With time, dirt from your customers’ and employees’ shoes, chemicals spilled daily on the floor and other forms of dirt accumulate on your floor. The mixture of all these substances is corrosive enough to wear the floor finishing and cause permanent damage to the floor material.
When you don’t clean your floor routinely; unlike your desire to spend a token, you’ll have to replace your flooring more frequently and trust us, the bill for repairing or replacing is massive.
Working with an expert floor cleaning service provider is the best approach to keeping your floors sparkling, giving the first impression, keeping your employees healthy and protecting your floor.
