The Real Value of Clean: Statistical Benefits of a Clean Workplace

Have you considered how clean the surfaces in your office are and how this affects your business, employees, and bottom line? Chances are you haven’t. A clean workplace includes computer mice, keyboards, phones, break room sink faucet handles, and other surfaces; Contaminated surfaces are everywhere.

These contaminants can cause big problems in the workplace, such as:

  • Decreased performance – Sick employees are 3 to 8% less productive and unplanned absences cause a 54% decrease in productivity/output.
  • Inferior customer service – Unplanned absences also cause a 39% decrease in customer service.
  • Increased costs – Employees average 7.7 sick days per year, increasing costs while decreasing revenue.

With this in mind, the benefits of regular, deep cleanings are even more apparent:

  • Increased productivity – Workers in clean offices experience a 2 to 8% gain in productivity.
  • Reduced absenteeism – Clean offices result in 46% decreased absenteeism.
  • Reduced probability of employee illness – Deep cleaning reduces contaminated surfaces (like those above) by up to 62%, resulting in an 80% decreased probability of employee illness.

While many view cleaning costs as anything but an investment, the truth is that maintaining a clean workplace is a major asset for any company. At Commercial Cleaning Experts, we provide regular, deep cleaning to large medical facilities, corporate headquarters, and retail spaces, amongst others.

Cleaning for Health: Why it Matters

A clean workplace is a productive workplace.

But surface level cleaning won’t give employees a healthy environment that fosters productivity and maintains employee health. On the contrary, it will allow further dirt and contaminants to pile up, causing decreased morale and compromising the well-being of every individual in the office. Cleaning for health is a focus of our preventative health protocol.

At Commercial Cleaning Experts, we believe in a process called “Cleaning for Maximum Health.” This means that instead of cleaning on a superficial level, we:

  • Capture dust (rather than push it further down into surfaces)
  • Use high filtration vacuuming equipment to extract dust from carpet and hard surface floors alike
  • Clean carpets with a clear hot water rinse method
  • Regularly deep clean walk-off matting at doors and in highly trafficked areas to maintain effectiveness
  • Disinfect shared contact points, particularly in restrooms
  • Maintain ample stock of hygiene products throughout buildings

With a specialization in large offices, the team at Commercial Cleaning Experts is an ideal resource for medical facilities, corporate headquarters, retail spaces, and other clients in need of regular, deep cleaning services.
