Employees, in many senses, are like cattle. They need constant cleaning, hormonal injections, and antibiotics. Of course you can not mandate their taking antibiotics and hormones but you can do your part in keeping them healthy by keeping your office and workspaces clean.
Now that the temperature is dropping a lot of colds, flus, fevers, and sore throats are going to be making their way around the office. All it takes is one sick person to sneeze on a doorknob and before you know it you could have a full on flu-epidemic in your office. This can cost you a lot in man hours and sick days.
Then there is the holiday aspect. As people go home to their families who have been traveling, they are very likely to be exposed to some kind of illness. All those people sharing food and drinks in close proximity is a breeding ground for disease. People in your office will get sick, but the question is do you want one or two people at a time out sick? Or five at a time?
That is why you need an office cleaning service to come in and disinfect your office routinely. It will stop the spread of disease. It will also make your office look and smell a lot better. The holidays are a fun time but come January 2nd you want to make sure you can hop right back into the proper work environment, and that means a clean work environment.
Cleaning services know where germs congregate and they can keep your office reliably germ free through the holiday season until it gets warm again. You can always ask your employees to do their part in keeping their office clean, but having nothing disinfect and given a proper cleaning, only a cleaning service can offer that.
Another problem is the office is liable to get fairly dirty and a bit neglected in the lead up to the holidays. People rushing to get work done while making holiday arrangements. Having a cleaning service deal with the general maintenance of your office can make life easier for your employees so they can get their work done before they take off for the holidays.
Although now the prime cold and flu season seasons are you will like having a brilliantly clean office and stick with a cleaning service throughout the year. Things are always getting messy, no matter what time of year it is.
