The days are getting shorter, the leaves have changed colour, and we are wearing jackets to work. Summer has past, and the cold weather is quickly closing in. This seasonal change also brings with it runny noses and chesty coughs – that’s right it is flu season.
The nasty virus can spread from person to person through the air, contact with an infected person or form any surfaces that they touch. We, at Minster Cleaning Service Staffordshire, know how important it is to prevent the spreading of flu germs. Professional office cleaning at the Staffordshire branch has never been more important than now.
Unfortunately, there is no special disinfectant that can combat the flu germs specifically. So how can you prevent the spread of the virus in your workplace?
We recommend increasing from weekly to daily cleans. Our Staffordshire team of office and commercial office cleaners have been trained to handle cleaning products correctly to ensure for the optimal clean. Our detailed work ensures that areas that touched most often, such as doorknobs, cupboard doors handles and refrigerators, remain as germ-free as possible.
Increasing your weekly office cleaning is a smart investment in your business and your workforce. The number of days lost due to sickness absences in 2017 in the UK was 131.2 million days. In 2017 on average each working person in the UK was absent from work for 4 days. While 4 sick days a year doesn’t sound extreme it has been calculated, from a survey developed by Vitality Heath, that sick staff costs British firms £77 billion.
Minster Cleaning has been ensuring the business around Stoke-on-Trent, Stone, Stafford, Nantwich, Crewe and the greater Staffordshire area are able to function efficiently and hygienically. Start your preventative measure now and don’t get caught out in the cold.
