Removing toxic cleaning supplies from your work environment can result in several positive changes. Many people don’t understand the effect that the toxins in common cleaning supplies has on employees who work in the office. Eliminating toxic cleaners and replacing them with ones that are environmentally friendly can make a dramatic improvement in both an employee’s disposition, as well as cause an increase in their productivity.
Fewer Fumes and Less Harmful Residue
Even though an office is cleaned after hours, the fumes and harmful residue left behind by toxic cleaners can linger for hours after the cleaning crew leaves. The residue that ends up on surfaces may become airborne when the air conditioner or heating system kicks on, circulating them throughout the air while the employees are in the office. Eliminating harsh cleaners will reduce the residue present in the work area. Using a natural cleaner will leave behind a clean, fresh scent that doesn’t have a negative impact on the brain.
Eliminating clutter around the office and on desks and shelves allows for a much deeper cleaning. It also improves the visual appearance of the environment. Clutter collects dust and airborne contaminants that can cause the office to hold odors and not look its best. Put away any paperwork that is just sitting on desks and remove any items that are no longer of use.
Elevates Mood and General Well-Being
Not only does eliminating clutter and reducing harmful residue allow for a deeper cleaning, it also improves the entire look and feel of the office. These simple improvements can elevate the mood of your employees and improve their general well-being. Workers who like their office and enjoy being there are more productive and will often go over and above what is expected of them.
Improve your work environment with the use of greener, environmentally friendly cleaning products. Not only will the atmosphere of your environment improve, you will see a noticeable improvement in your employee’s moods, as well as their ability to produce quality work.
