Office Cleaning VS Office Sanitising

Keeping your office clean and hygienic is key to having a healthy and productive office environment. Offices are key components for companies of all shapes and sizes, so it’s important that they are made as efficient as possible and that staff are kept safe from the spread of germs

To keep on top of your office cleanliness, LCS offer both office cleaning services and office sanitising services in Northampton- but which one is right for your workplace? In this blog we’ll explore both of these commercial cleaning options and break down what they are, where they should be used and how they differ from each other. 

LCS have over 20 years of experience with providing high-quality commercial and industrial cleaning services around Northamptonshire. We understand that every office is different and our team of highly skilled, BICS standard cleaning staff will work out a personalised cleaning service that works for you and your business.

What Is Included In Office Cleaning Services?

Our office cleaning services are completely tailored to the needs of the company and what is included is dependent on what it is you need from your clean. An office clean from LCS can be very wide ranging and can include anything from the deep cleaning of staff kitchens in toilets to the cleaning of office windows. High-level cleaning is also available for those hard to reach areas. 

Essentially, an office clean is a deeper clean than an office sanitising service and includes the removal of obvious dirt and debris. This could be through wiping down surfaces, dusting or hoovering areas that are frequently used, with the aim of keeping them looking fresh and clean.

What Is Included In Office Sanitising Services?

An office sanitising service is more focused on keeping surface bateria free and trying to curb the spread of germs around the workplace. Bugs and germs can spread easily around an office environment so regular sanitisation can be a great way of protecting your staff from illness.

Shared areas that are exposed to high levels of bacteria, such as workplace kitchens and toilets, should be regularly sanitised using a sanitising cleaning product. Other equipment that is shared or frequently touched should also be sanitised, such as door handles, desk areas, keyboards and telephones. Regular office decontamination and disinfection will help you mitigate the spread of potentially harmful germs that can cause your staff to get ill and take days off work.


Why Should I Have An Office Regularly Cleaned?

Having your office regularly cleaned is crucial to maintaining a healthy, efficient workplace where your staff feel safe and can get on with their work without any unnecessary problems. It is your duty as an employer to provide a safe working environment for your staff, free from any clutter or unhygienic areas that could cause them to get injured or ill. Not only will this protect your staff, but it will also ensure that sick days are kept to a minimum and help to protect you from potential any workplace compensation claims. 

Keeping a clean office also helps to improve your staff morale and keep your office productivity high. No one likes working in a dirty, cluttered space and you are less likely to go above and beyond for your employer if you felt they weren’t putting the effort into you. Poor organisation will also make it harder for people to do their jobs, increasing staff frustration and even impacting your staff turnover in extreme cases.   

There are plenty of other reasons to keep your office clean and tidy, including making your business look more professional and boosting the life of your equipment. For more information on how LCS can help your office, please contact a member of our team today

Benefits Of Being On A Cleaning Contract

Whether it be office sanitising or office cleaning, having a professional cleaning service for your office benefits your business in a number of different ways. For a start, it’s hugely convenient and enables everyone in your office to get on with their own work without worrying about cleaning procedures. It also makes sense for you to outsource your cleaning as it means less time will be spent managing an internal team – our cleaners can simply turn up before or after work, do their job and leave. 

Another benefit is that your office will be kept clean, hygienic and professional at all times thanks to our highly skilled team of workers. With an office cleaning contract you can come to work knowing that your workplace will be perfectly clean and tidy, and your staff will feel like you are making an effort to keep things safe and hygienic. It will also ensure that your workplace looks professional should any customers or clients come by. 

Office cleaning services can also be great ways for you to save money in the long run. Our office cleaning solutions are all completely flexible and you can find something to fit your budget. We will focus on whatever area you want so you will know we’re not needlessly cleaning the same part of your office when another area might need it more. 

Regular cleaning from skilled professionals will also help to ensure your office equipment is looked after and maintained. Whether it be the tiling in your food prep area or the floors in your office space, regular maintenance will help to increase the lifespan and reduce your repairs and costs.
