Yes, Dirty Floors Can Harm Your Business

If you’re a small buisness owner, you probably understand the importance of keeping your office environment clean. You get that bathrooms and kitchenettes need to remain tidy and that doors and door knobs should be wiped down on a regular basis, especially during cold and flue season.

But if you’re not keeping up with cleaning your floors, you aren’t doing yourself any favors.

Carpets collet germs, too

If an employee shows up to the office with a cold, that cold can quickly work its way through the rest of your staff. Not only does this have a negative impact on office productivity, it can have a negative impact on your bottom line.

If your carpets haven’t been cleaned in you-can’t-remember-how-long, you’ll want to hire a floor cleaning service much sooner than later. Experts speculate that there’s a direct correlation between dirty floors and the number of sick days your employees take.

Unhealthy employees are not as productive as healthy employees

Circling back to the prior example, it’s worth noting that a healthy employee tends to be a lot more productive than an unproductive one.  Dirty, unclean floors can lead to headaches, stuffy noses and sinus issues.  If your employees are suffering, your staff won’t be able to produce the same level of output that they could produce if they were feeling well.

If your employees are worried about their health issues or they’re worried about the cost of seeing a doctor and filling prescriptions, they’ll be less likely to give their full attention to their work. This can also have a negative impact on productivity.

It can damage your brand

If you own a retail store, your customers are going to expect that your showroom is going to be clean. Stained, dirty carpets can turn a buyer off. In some cases, it can be enough to drive would-be clients directly into the arms of your competition.

Remember- you won’t have a second chance to make a first impression. Making sure your floors clean will help you put your buisness’ best foot forward.
