Toronto, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/07/2013 -- Research reveals that 64% of office workers believe that there is a connection between a clean building and the number of times an employee calls in sick. Unfortunately, this fact doesn’t always translate into calls to action by management. Fortunately, enterprising vendors like CDR cleaners are taking proactive steps to demonstrate to office managers that an expansion of their janitorial and corporate cleaning budget is good for business.
Camaur Blake, Founder, CDR Cleaners goes one step further. He adds that, “A clean office, a clean work space is great for company morale.” Blake draws upon a recent study that claimed, “a majority of Americans reported that they actually judged a coworker by how clean or dirty they kept their workspace. Not only will a messy, dirty workspace affect a person’s health, but it also affects peoples’ opinions of you.”
This study is re-enforced by a Staples survey that found that 85% of workers said they would come into the office sick even if they weren’t feeling good. When you think about the germs that inevitably spread from sick employees touching doorknobs, phones, microwaves, and anything else, this is a rather scary thought.
Blake adds, “Office cleanliness is extremely important but it is often not given much attention. Whether it is morale or the health of your staff, a clean office is paramount”.
In fact, research reveals that office desks have been found to be more than 400 times dirtier than a toilet seat. “The average toilet is home to 50 bacterias per square inch while an average desk is infested with 20,000 germs per square inch,” according to BBC News.
But the infection doesn’t stop there. For example, surfaces that are not regularly cleaned and disinfected accumulate 31% more bacteria per day, office phones harbour 25,000 germs per square inch and approximately 25% of water cooler buttons can hold dangerous germs that may transmit illness.
With all this said, it goes without saying that everyone wants to be more productive and healthier – and when your office environment is clean, these goals are much more attainable. Vendors like CDR Cleaners are working with businesses to keep germs and clutter at bay.
