26% of adults suffer from environmental allergies. This means being exposed to pollen, mold, mildew, animal dander, or other triggers can produce unpleasant physical symptoms. Red eyes, headaches, nasal congestion and other allergy related complaints can really have a negative impact on your team’s ability to perform as needed.
You may think that this is a situation that is entirely out of your hands. However, your commercial cleaning service in Plymouth can help you keep your team breathing easier. Here’s what you need to know:
Everything Outside Eventually Comes Inside
Here in the Plymouth area, one of the main allergy triggers is pollen from trees and plants. Pollen is sticky – that’s how it does its job of creating new future plants. When your employees are going about their daily life, leaving home, commuting to the office, and whatever errands have to happen in the morning, they’re exposed to the pollen in the environment. This pollen sticks to them, and when they come into the office, it is then transferred to any surface the employee comes in contact with.
These surfaces can include doorknobs, keypads, handrails, stair bannisters, bathroom fixtures, desks, phones, break room tables, the copier, computers, phones, and so much more. Basically anything an employee can touch can collect pollen and other allergens.
Once the allergens are in your work site, they can contribute to employee health problems.
Air filtration systems are one way to help alleviate the presence of allergens in the workplace. However, these units are quite expensive. Additionally, if you’re renting the facility, upgrading the building infrastructure may not be an option available to you.
Commercial cleaning services in Plymouth remove allergens from the workplace environment with a thorough approach to cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting the building. This work is performed using medical grade products, to help keep your employee’s workplace environment safe.
