15 Feb The Benefits of Eco-friendly Office Common Area Cleaning
A clean work environment is essential for the functioning of any office space.
Using eco-friendly cleaning products enhances these benefits, improving employee health and efficiency, as well as extending the lifespan of office furniture and flooring.
Many cleaning companies will use the cheapest cleaning products which contain high quantities of harsh chemicals.
These chemicals not only reduce office air quality through strong smelling, toxic pollutants, they also accelerate wear and tear on furniture and floor surfaces.
More eco-friendly cleaning products, like those used by Sweep and Scrub, are increasingly becoming the preferred option for employee health, office furniture, and the environment.
Improved Air Quality, Healthier Workers
The mere odor of many cleaning products is enough to make some people feel light-headed and dizzy. What’s more, the toxins in these products linger long after the odor has dissipated.
For people who spend most of their time in an office, this can have significant effects on their health such as asthma and allergies.
Health-focused eco-friendly cleaning products minimize or exclude these chemicals to ensure that employees are healthier and happier.
Purer air in the office and healthier employees means fewer sick days, less lethargy, and improved productivity.
Furniture and Flooring life
Cleaning products that are high in chemicals are naturally more corrosive than more plant-based and natural cleaners.
This means that furniture and floors that are cleaned regularly can be stripped of varnish, sealant and surfacing faster.
The eco-friendly products used by Sweep and Scrub in your office common areas are much less harsh and will slow down the wear and tear of regular cleaning. This will save you money and time in the long-term when it comes to re-surfacing or replacing floors and furniture.
Naturally, products that are better for employee health are also better for the planet.
Many cleaning products are greenwashed as ‘green’ and ‘eco-friendly’ but are still high in toxic chemicals. It is important to choose products that are plant or bio-based, biodegradable, and non-toxic.
These more natural products are much safer for marine flora and fauna life if washed down the sink.
Environmentally friendly cleaning products are often created by earth-conscious companies, so they are sourced in more sustainable and recyclable packaging.
This means less waste, toxins, and chemicals being produced and released, and an overall reduced carbon footprint for your company!
