We’ve all come across this situation before: on Monday one of your employees comes into work with a cough, and by Thursday half your office is home sick. While this can happen any time of the year, colder weather and increased time spent inside makes winter high season for coughs, colds, and the flu. While these winter illnesses may seem inevitable, JAN-PRO® of Greater New York knows there are ways our office cleaning service can help keep the workers at your New York City-area workplace healthy during the colder months.
How Cleaning Services Can Keep Your New York City-Area Office Healthy
Keeping your workers healthy this winter starts with partnering with an office cleaning service proactive about keeping your New York City-area business germ-free. Just some of the ways professional cleaning services such as JAN-PRO of Greater New York can keep the workers at your office healthy this cold season include:
- Prevent Cross Contamination. Even when workers wash their hands immediately after sneezing or blowing their noses, healthy workers can still pick up germs and viruses from door handles and sinks. By targeting the high-touch areas in your New York City-area workplace, including towel dispensers, door handles, sinks, and flush handles, our office cleaning service can help reduce the risk of germs and viruses spreading.
- Improve Air Quality. A number of factors often make your workplace’s air quality worse in the winter. These include the inability to open windows, older heating systems, and dirt tracked into your office on snowy boots turning into airborne particles. Our office cleaning service of JAN-PRO of Greater New York can improve your New York City-area workplace’s air quality by using HEPA filter vacuums. These vacuums can trap airborne dirt and dust as small as 0.3 microns in diameter, helping your workers breathe easier.
- Disinfect Keyboards. With slushy streets and blowing winds to content with, workers are more likely to eat their lunch at their desks during the winter. This habit, however, puts them at a greater risk of picking up germs and viruses from their computer keyboards – one of the most highly contagious surfaces in any workplace. Our office cleaning service should keep your workers safe from these germy surfaces by using systems to fully disinfect the computer keyboards within your New York City-area workplace.
