Office Pets Don’t Have to Make a Mess. Keep Your Office Clean with an Office Pet.

The trend of office pets is on the rise. After all, they decrease stress, improve morale, and are cuddly cuties that brighten everyone’s day. With more office pets gracing the halls of commercial buildings everywhere, it’s time to ask whether or not your office is clean enough for your employees with an animal on the loose. From your carpets to your kitchen, there are certain areas in your business that you need to keep extra clean when you have an office pet, and D’s Cleaning Service is here to help you do just that.

Your employees eat at work on a regular basis and let’s be honest, dogs, cats, and other animals aren’t known for being the cleanest creatures. Whether they track in dirt from outside or just jump on the counters after walking around in the office, an animal in the kitchen is not sanitary. Your kitchen is already one of the dirtiest places in your office, so keeping it clean while adding in a pet is an extra challenge. You’ll need to do something about the bacteria, food crumbs, and germs that lurk on the counters and tables where your employees eat and prepare food.

To keep your employees healthy, D’s Cleaning Services puts special care into cleaning your company’s kitchen, especially when you have an office pet. From wiping away germs on the counters to sanitizing tables, your company’s kitchen will be spotless after we clean even when you have roaming pets.

 

Carpetsoffice pet sleeping on the carpet

While pets do a lot for moral, they sometimes can hurt your employees’ overall health. According to Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each year and six out of 10 are exposed to cat or dog dander regularly. With so many people suffering from allergies, having an office pet could be causing some of your employees to suffer symptoms such as scratchy eyes, congestion, skin rashes, coughing and more. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, suggests improving air quality by vacuuming, dusting, and washing.

At D’s Cleaning Service, we can help improve air quality by cutting down on pet dander with services including general cleaning, carpet shampooing, and dusting.

 

Windows

First impressions are important, and pets can make great ones when they greet visitors with a tail wag or a friendly meow. Unfortunately, your office pet can also cause you to make a bad first impression with untidy office windows. Nose prints on the doors and windows from your furry friend don’t always look that great to visiting business partners or clients. You can end up looking a little unprofessional with smudges on all your glass. D’s Cleaning Service cleans all those smudges away so your pets and your clients have a clear view.

When you have D’s Cleaning Service as your commercial cleaner, you won’t need to worry about keeping your office clean even when you have an office pet. Keep loving your office pet and all the joy it brings while keeping your office clean by calling us today.

Preparing Your Office for the Winter

Stay Happy and Healthy by Cleaning Your Office During the Winter Regularly

During the winter, keeping your office space clean becomes more difficult as winter grime from snow and rain is trekked into the office. The ice and snow turn into slush that makes everyone scowl while the rain creates gloomy clouds and views. In addition to the extra dirt in the office, you may also find your employees becoming ill more often in the winter as the temperature drops and germs spread.

To keep your office clean during the winter and your employees healthy, follow these tips on preparing your office for the colder months.

 

Disinfect Shared Spaces to Protect Your Health

With colder temperatures comes a greater risk of illness. According to Harvard Medical School, there is evidence that the chilly temperatures of winter suppress the immune system and increase the risk of infection and disease. As the flu and other illnesses spread, keeping your office extra clean from December through March is a good way to keep your employees healthy and working to their full potential.

Cleaning shared items such as phones, keyboards, and tables and also removing dust on a regular basis from individual spaces is a good start to keeping germs from spreading. Commercial cleaning companies are often scheduled for extra cleanings during the winter months to disinfect and help keep employees healthy. If you haven’t called your commercial cleaning company yet, it might be the right time to do so.

 

Deep Clean Your Carpets to Banish GermsClean your office carpets in the winter

Carpets and floors are germ sponges and get the brute of the elements each year. As employees step into the office with snow-caked shoes and ice-encrusted boots, you’ll notice your carpet or floors starting to look a little dingy.

On top of the dirty appearance, your office carpets and floors will be covered in those thriving winter germs. Cindy Gellner, M.D., from the University of Utah, says that bacteria, including E. coli, can be transferred from outside into your home or office from shoes. An important part of keeping your office clean and healthy during the winter is making sure your floors are cleaned on a regular basis.

Deep cleaning the carpets at least once a year, and preferably more, can help keep your carpets looking new. Vacuuming and steaming or sweeping and mopping your floors daily will help cut down on the germs as well.

 

Clean Your HVAC System to Breathe Clean Air

Dust, dander, and bacteria gets trapped within HVAC systems and air ducts during the winter. As we spend more time indoors during the winter, we breathe in more of the dust, mold, and bacteria that gets trapped in the system and pushed continually throughout the office. Allergies and illnesses can become a problem with extra dust and bacteria floating around in the office.

Calling a professional HVAC system cleaner can help keep your office healthy this winter by cutting down on bacteria and allergy triggers.

 

Wipe Down Your Windows for a Cheerful OfficeCleaning supplies you can use to clean your office in the winter

Keeping your employees’ physical health in good shape is extremely important, but you also want to make sure they are happy as well. During the winter, we see less sunshine, which can sometimes psychologically affect our moods. When the sun does shine in the colder months, make sure it isn’t blocked by grimy windows.

Calling an office cleaning company to come dust your window blinds and clean your windows can help ensure the light comes in bright and cheerful.

When the winter snow and ice hit and brings the winter illness and dirt, ensuring you are taking extra cleaning steps in your office is important. Keep your office clean and healthy by calling your local commercial office cleaners to schedule regular office cleanings. Your employees and your health will thank you for the clean office space.

Importance of cleaning and disinfecting office technology

Why is it Important to Clean and Disinfect Technology in the Office?

Technology has worked its way into daily office life in the form of equipment such as computers, printers, and phones. Unfortunately, electronic devices become extremely dirty from everyday use. Most people don’t typically clean their electronics on a regular basis, but office technology can collect dirt and grime from people touching it over time. While dirt build-up may not always be seen with the naked eye, it can cause major issues.

With employees often sharing equipment, it’s important to regularly clean and disinfect electronic devices. By cleaning and disinfecting technology, you will reduce the risk of illness, lengthen the lifespan of equipment, and increase productivity in the office.

 

 

Reduce the Risk of Illness

Flu season is upon us. Cleaning and disinfecting your most frequently touched objects and surfaces, including electronics, can help prevent the spread of sickness in the office. Many employees share the same computers, phones, and printers each day. The constant use of office equipment by multiple people increases the chance of spreading illness, creating clutter, and causing the build-up of oils and dust.

Cleaning and disinfecting office technology helps to keep you and your employees healthy.

 

 

Lengthen the Life of Office TechnologyCleaning technology extends life of equipment

Cleaning and disinfecting office electronics can help you save money. The longer your technology operates efficiently, the less money you will have to invest in repairs and replacements.

 When dirt builds up on your devices, over time the gunk and grime can cause your machines to malfunction. As technology is used, the device collects residue, such as dirt or oils from employees’ hands or face.

Accidents happen. Employees will spill drinks or drop crumbs on keyboards. Once grime builds up on keyboards, the keys can jam and cause issues with key stroke function. Dust build-up has the same effect on computer mice. Build-up in a computer mouse effects the ability to click or move smoothly across surfaces.

Oils from skin causes technology to look grimy. When computer screens or keyboards are touched, oils will remain causing the devices to be unsightly. Oils can also destroy the usability of electronic devices, dirty fingers can cause wear on keyboards and cause letters to fade off.

 

 

Increase in ProductivityA clean office increases productivity in employees

Allergies make working productively difficult. If your employees suffer from allergies then dust, dirt, and debris in the office can cause allergies to flare up. Regularly cleaning and disinfecting office equipment keeps your office space a little friendlier for your employees that have allergies.

Having a cluttered environment can also affect office electronics. By preventing clutter, you are preventing accidental spills or other mishaps. Having items such as drinks or food near technology, can be harmful if an accidental spill happens. Cleaning and disinfecting your office is a great way to provide a clean environment for employees and a safe environment for your office equipment.

Setting a regular schedule to clean and disinfect technology is important, and it takes time to kill bacteria that grow on devices. If your employees are spending too much time cleaning their office space, they are spending less time being productive.

At D’s Cleaning Services, we have the industrial grade equipment and disinfectants needed to clean and disinfect technology and your office space. Let us take care of your cleaning so you and your employees don’t have to.

If you are ready to have a clean and sanitary workspace for you and your employees, give D’s Cleaning Service a call at 225-572-9497.

 Open a WindowMake sure to have a fresh smelling office, open a window for fresh air.

An office usually contains a lot of people, so it’s natural that it will become stuffy. Nothing is more refreshing than fresh air. Get rid of stale office air by opening a couple of windows on a nice day. Opening a window will circulate the old air and give you and your co-workers a breath of freshness while also eliminating any unwanted odors.

Add Some Fresh Flowers

Adding fresh flowers to the office space will not only add a pleasant smell, but it will also be appealing to the eye. You may also want to invest in some office plants. Plants such as indoor palm trees are recommended because they act as natural air purifiers and add a little character.

Regular Cleaningsgoodofficesmell_header_2

An essential part of keeping your office smelling nice is making sure your bathroom is cleaned on a regular basis. Cleaning your bathroom once or several times a week, depending on your office size, will help make sure none of the smells leak into the rest of the office.

In between your offices’ regular cleanings, you can keep your office smelling fresh by investing in fresh smelling, but not too over-powering, soaps and scented oils. Keep in mind that some employees and clients may be sensitive to strong scents. In addition, have a spray bottle of air-freshener in the bathroom.

Keep the Carpets Clean

Many business owners may not know, but carpet often causes bad odors in your office. Keeping up with regular carpet shampooing is important in order to keep down unpleasant smells. You don’t want to have a client come in for a meeting and take their business somewhere else because they got a bad impression from the horrible odor in your office.

Regularly deep cleaning your carpets can reduce odor in your office and keep potential clients from walking out the door.

When you need general office cleaning or deep carpet shampooing for odor control, call D’s Cleaning Service. We are available whenever you need us, even if you have a big spill emergency.

Handwashing 101

Wash Your Hands the Right Way, at the Right Time

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Business, Health

Washing Your Hands at Certain Times and After Certain Events Can Help Prevent Sickness in the Office

We all remember being told to wash our hands before eating when we were younger, but sometimes as adults we forget to do this. Washing your hands, however, is an important to prevent infection and avoid spreading germs both in and out of the office. Keep your office healthy and happy by learning the importance of hand washing.

 

When to Wash Your HandsSomeone washing their hands with soap

At work, you touch many different surfaces like your mouse, your computer, and the break room’s fridge door. All these surfaces have germs living on them. When you touch these items, germs are instantly transferred onto your hand.

To prevent illness from germ transfer, most of us know it’s important to wash your hands before and after you eat and after using the bathroom. In addition, it’s especially important to wash your hands after blowing your nose, sneezing, and coughing during the cold and flu season.

Sadly, most people don’t realize that you should also wash your hands after shaking someone’s hand. Think about the last time you went to a business luncheon or networking event. You probably met several colleagues and new people and shook their hands. Do you remember washing your hands after? Did you eat something right after shaking their hands or touch your face?

You can easily spread germs that can make you and others sick by not washing your hands after making contact with others.

 

The Proper Way to Wash Your HandsTwo people shaking hands

According to Mayo Clinic, you should wash your hands with both soap and water. Both warm and cold water will work. You should scrub all the surfaces of your hand including the wrists, between the fingers, under the nails, and on the back of your hands to ensure every part of your hand is being cleaned. After drying your hands, try to use a towel or your elbow to turn off the faucet. This way you don’t touch the same germs that you just washed off.

 

Extra Precautions to Take

There are several ways you can help promote hand washing and other healthy habits at the office. You can have printed signs, fliers, and cards near the sinks and bathrooms. If you prefer to promote a healthy office digitally, look at doing digital signage or a weekly email newsletter. You can place the signs in the lobby and other commonly trafficked areas for your employees to see. You can use the newsletter to remind your employees about flu season and hand washing.

While hand washing can help prevent the spreading of germs, regularly cleaning is also important to stop germs from spreading. When you regularly have the areas with the most germs cleaned, you reduce the risk of your employees becoming sick. Disinfecting keyboards, phones, and other frequently used equipment will keep everyone in the office healthy.

If you find you don’t have the time to properly clean while also running your business, hiring a professional cleaning service can be an ideal solution. A professional cleaning company, such as D’s Cleaning Service, will properly clean and sanitize your office. From floors to equipment, they will help ensure your office stays pristine. Call D’s Cleaning to keep your employees and yourself healthy and happy.
