The old adage used to be, ‘cleanliness is next to godliness’. Arguably for a modern day company, the adage should now be, ‘cleanliness is next to effectiveness’; for it goes without saying that workers in a dirty, un-hygienic office will be less productive and more prone to sickness than those in an office that is regularly cleaned and sanitized.
That is why it is crucial to maintain janitorial supplies and ensure that your hygiene cleaning products are regularly stocked. From toilet roll to soap, mouse wipes to air freshener, making sure you have enough supplies will ensure the comfort and health of your staff.
It is also important to dispose of out of date products since using such products is often as useless as using no product at all. In some cases, it can be even more damaging to the health of your staff as the active ingredients in out of date products can occasionally react badly on contact with air.
That is why it is also important to make sure your cleaning supplies are kept in air-tight containers where a health risk is posed and with products such as sanitary hygiene dispensers, only operated by trained individuals.
If you do not have a regular supplier of cleaning products, there are many reputable companies within the UK who can supply you. Most of these will have a full range of cleaning supplies that can also be bought online, such as toilet paper and hand sanitizer, as well as sanitary products or industrial cleaning suppliers to rent. They will also come and take your rented supplies when full and return them emptied in pristine condition.
With these supplies, you will be able to keep your business in tip top condition – both in terms of office space and staff. And tip top staff means a more productive team, less prone to sick days and more focused on achieving those goals.
