Why Your Business Needs a Fall Cleaning

Spring isn’t the only time to do a deep cleaning! Fall is here, and it’s the perfect time to have your office cleaned! The consensus is that fall is America's favorite season. It’s the time for football, changing leaves and pumpkin-spice-flavored everything, but fall also means cold and flu season and nasty weather are just around the corner. Here are some reasons why your business needs a thorough cleaning this fall.

Cold and Flu Season

October marks the beginning of flu season, and regular cleaning is the best way to keep germs out of the office! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the flu alone costs U.S. companies $10.4 billion in direct costs per year, including hospitalizations and outpatient visits. Keep your employees healthy and save your bottom line with an office cleaning!

Dropping Temperatures

With fall arriving, temperatures are dropping and the summer heat is wearing off. This means you’re probably keeping windows and doors closed more, leading to an increase of dust and dirt due to a decrease in ventilation. A fall cleaning is important because fresher air and less dust in the office will keep employees happy and productivity up.

Nasty Weather

Before you know it, snow and slush will arrive, making it harder to keep the office clean. Fall is the time to be thinking about how you will battle the winter weather once it gets here. Installing entry mats is a great way to prepare and make sure that rain, snow and slush don’t make it past the door. Regular carpet cleaning ensures your carpets stay free of allergens, dust and bacteria. Wet weather and warm offices could lead to mold and mildew growing in your carpets, so make sure to take all of the steps to avoid these issues by scheduling regular cleanings!
