Business Cleaning Services Improve Workplace Productivity During Cold and Flu Season

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2011) - Cold and flu season has arrived, and there's sure to be no shortage of sniffling, sneezing and coughing at your workplace. With many employees calling in sick, and those who've made it in not quite performing at their best, cold and flu season can really take its toll on productivity. However, professional business cleaning could be the solution you need!

Regularly scheduled business cleaning or janitorial services can help protect you and your employees from the spread of colds, the flu and other illnesses. Of course, cold and flu germs are very good at finding ways into every possible nook and cranny in your facility, so you'll need to hire a business cleaning service that provides thorough, top to bottom service. Germs can linger anywhere, from personal surfaces, such as desks, keyboards and phones, to more public areas like restrooms, shared kitchens, light switches and doorknobs, so when hiring a commercial cleaning service be sure to ask about things like kitchen and restroom cleaning, hard surface cleaning, waste removal and about the frequency of their cleaning schedules (daily, weekly, or monthly).

When it comes to hygiene, common sense isn't common

When it comes to basic hygiene in the workplace, the truth can be very unpleasant. Even now, following the threat of H1N1 and the resurgence of older illnesses like pertussis (whooping cough) 1 in 5 adults do not wash their hands after using the restroom, and only 15% of adults wash their hands after coughing or sneezing. So, while you can't control the spread of germs around your office, you can certainly control how long they linger. In fact, some business cleaning services, such as ServiceMaster Clean®, offer sanitization programs in addition to their regular janitorial services.

Don't let cold and flu season have a negative impact on your office's productivity. Fight back by hiring a professional business cleaning service to help keep your workplace clean and as germ free as possible.
