It’s hard to imagine how much things are going to change in the workplace post-pandemic, but there are two trends that many expect to be on the rise: a hybrid work model and pet-friendly workplaces. Even the hospitality industry is expected to be more amenable to furry guests. While this is great news for pet lovers everywhere, it will require a few extra steps in your cleaning and maintenance routine. Our janitorial staff has been keeping commercial spaces sparkling with pet-friendly cleaning solutions for years, so we’ll have no problem adapting to your new normal.
Benefits of permitting employees to bring their different pets to the workplace include:
- Less Stress
- Greater Productivity
- Closer Relationships
- Adorable Social Media Content!
However, a pet-friendly workplace does come with a few extra cleaning requirements.
Pet-Friendly Cleaning Solutions
The first thing we should mention is that the products we use to clean your facility are pet-friendly. That’s an important factor. While the products may be non-toxic and pet-friendly, we can’t say the same for the equipment. Some cleaning services that require heavier equipment, such as steam cleaning the carpets, could be frightening to pets. We can schedule these types of services for after hours to avoid stressing out your office mascot, as well as not interfere with the traffic in your building.
The second thing to point out is that there are areas that will need extra attention now that there are pets roaming around the office. Your floors, carpets, and upholstered areas are going to be the most affected by a pet-friendly workplace. We get deep into every fiber of your carpets to remove any dirt, pet dander, and allergens that are lingering. Along with consistent janitorial services to clean and disinfect, we highly recommend adding carpet cleaning, floor cleaning, and air purification to your contract for regular pet-friendly cleaning solutions.
