Most of us will be well aware of the Disney-esque spring clean that takes place around April, getting the home ready for the summer while the birds chirp outside and blooms start to spring up in the garden. We might not get that kind of vibe in cold, dreary winter – where all we want to do is enjoy a couple of roast potatoes and an uncomfortable amount of Quality Street while we sit on the sofa and watch Home Alone for the 373rd time.
But no, after this year, we can expect to be far more vigilant towards hygiene practices, especially in the workplace. COVID has a lot to answer for, and while we might be tired of spraying antibacterial liquids on our desks and sanitizing our hands within an inch of their lives – the festive spring clean might just be the new practice we all need.
“You may as well be working on a toilet."
Office Bacteria… There is A LOT.
Starting with some gross but extremely essential statistics, your general office desk is said to contain 400 times more germs than a toilet seat - lovely!
As if winter wasn't already the season for catching every bug going, our office spaces can undoubtedly facilitate that smooth transition from surface to body.
Bacteria that can be encouraged to grow if adequate cleaning does not take place include E-coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Helicobacter pylori – not very festive.
This is just taking into consideration the desks too, let alone the door handles and the kettle!
“A professional cleaning service will take the pain out of coming back to work – probably."
Bring in The Professionals!
None of us want to be wiping down our belongings with a raging hangover after the office Christmas party, especially when everyone is avoiding talking about that thing that happened. Professionals know what they are doing; they are well equipped and ready to tackle even the smallest of nooks and crannies and afford you a little yet precious time, not to think about COVID. You already work there, isn’t that enough?
Find cleaning services Manchester for a reputable company that will sort your office out without any problems, leaving it fresh and ready to come back to in the New Year.
“A festive spring clean prevents a January spring clean."
A New Year, a Fresh New Start
Nobody wants to come back to an unclean workspace. We already all have to deal with the fact we are back at work on a wet January day, and, frankly, having to clean up the place just adds insult to injury. This is just another reason why a festive spring clean is a great idea for future you.
A clean and tidy workplace fosters productivity; it also helps limit the sick days, keeping those germs from spreading around the office. A new year will definitely benefit from a fresh start, and all employees will have to worry about is getting back into the Monday mindset.
