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.
