People spend most of their day at work, and as you should, you give your employees everything they need to succeed. You also work as hard as you can to run your business cost-efficiently. Professional commercial cleaning services can help employee morale and save you money.
Is your work pet-friendly? Do you have employees with asthma and allergies? Is your business carpeted? Are your bathroom floors clean? Did you know a building can be considered sick? Hiring a professional cleaning company to deep clean your business is a solution to make sure your company’s building is clean, safe and economical.
WHY HIRE A COMMERCIAL FLOOR CLEANING COMPANY
INDOOR AIR QUALITY.
The EPA states that the average American spends about 90% of their time indoors where some concentrated pollutants can be two to five times higher than outdoor concentrations. Indoor air pollution (IAP) ranks as one of the top five environmental risks to public health since 1990.
Control your business’s indoor air quality (IAQ) with regular professional floor cleanings and air duct cleaning. Stanley Steemer removes common allergens and irritants from carpet, hardwood, and tile and grout. Air duct cleaning is a thorough cleaning of HVAC systems. We start with an inspection then use a HEPA-filtered vacuum to remove pollutants from vents and deep inside your businesses’ HVAC system.
The CDC says that if HVAC systems are not properly maintained and cleaned they can be a source of pollutants such as potential microbial growth and odor concerns. Microbial growth can also result from stagnant water in drain pans or from uncontrolled moisture inside of air ducts and cooling coils.
The National Air Duct Cleaning Association (NADCA) recommends commercial, industrial and healthcare businesses have their air handling unit, supply duct and return duct/exhaust duct inspected at least once a year.
REMOVE ASTHMA AND ALLERGENS.
Due to asthma, commonly triggered by poor IAQ, US adults miss about 14 million workdays per year. Getting your floors and air ducts professionally cleaned reduces allergens in your floors and air, helping the health of your building.
Refresh Carpet Cleaning is backed by data to remove common allergens and irritants. We remove on average 94% of household allergens from carpet, 96% from hardwood and 96.5% from tile and grout.
Buildup from dirt and debris prevents air flow, which causes your furnace to work harder. You can save over 30% in energy costs with clean HVAC systems. Years of build-up can hinder the flow of your HVAC system, making it less efficient and much more costly. A buildup of .42 inches of dirt and dust on a heating or cooling coil can result in a decrease in efficiency of 21 percent.
When you get your air ducts cleaned, you allow the fans in the system to work with ease, circulating clean air. In fact, a 100,000 square foot building with 400 tons of AC can save $22,500 PER YEAR with a clean HVAC system.
Did you know that one in four buildings in the United States could be considered sick? Sick building syndrome (SBS) and building related illness (BRI) are both complications where building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building. Symptoms of BRI and SBS can include coughing, headaches, chest tightness, ear, nose and throat irritation, and more.
The EPA offers three solutions to helping SBS and BRI, two of which talk about healthy HVAC systems, like adhering to HVAC ventilation codes and air cleaning.
IMPROVE EMPLOYEE PRODUCTIVITY.
Employees have increased focus in a clean working environment because they are less distracted and less time is wasted. Clean work spaces also provide less stress and healthier environments, which can help fix the national average of 5 sick days of work a year.
Properly maintained HVAC systems can lead to $10-$30 billion in employee productivity gains due to having clean work environments. According to the NADCA, 20% of all illnesses are either caused by, or aggravated by, polluted indoor air.
Regularly cleaning your floors removes a whole lot of dirt, when these contaminants are removed, you will be able to see a noticeable difference in your carpet, tile and grout or hardwood. Professionally cleaning your floors will improve the overall look and feel of your business.
If you have stains on your flooring in an employee kitchen or high traffic patterns near doors, Stanley Steemer can remove any noticeable discoloration or unsatisfying remembrance of heavy use.
