Springtime brings about an extra set of challenges when it comes to commercial cleaning solutions. We are, of course, talking about allergy season. As everything begins to bloom and the windows open up to let in the clean, fresh springtime air, you need to take extra steps to minimize springtime allergens in your building. While sunshine and fresh air are great for productivity and office morale, those pesky allergens can quickly turn your office into a sniffling, sneezing, headache-inducing environment.
Why You Need to Minimize Springtime Allergens in the Office
Tens of millions of people in the United States alone are affected by seasonal allergies. With that many people affected, taking extra precautions to keep your office clean and sanitized will keep allergy-prone employees from suffering during work hours. It’s almost impossible to avoid pollen and allergens that are flying through the air. Still, you can work with your KG Facility Solutions team to add or increase some of our cleaning solutions to help maintain a cleaner indoor environment and reduce allergy symptoms. By taking extra steps with your office cleaning minimizes indoor allergens and also improve productivity in your workplace.
Allergens and pollen don’t just travel through the air; they can stick to clothing and other surfaces in the office. In a busy commercial building with a steady flow of traffic and doors swinging open and closed, the pollen has plenty of avenues to enter your building and offices and wreak havoc. You always want your building to be clean and comfortable for everyone. Considering springtime allergies and incorporating a plan to improve the indoor climate is a signal to your guests and tenants that you care about their well-being and help solidify long-lasting relationships with tenants of the building. Office managers will have an easier time retaining high-quality employees by having a clean and sanitized office space and reducing employee’s exposure to allergens and irritants.
Reducing Exposure to Allergens and Irritants
With an increase in sniffling, sneezing, and coughing, it’s vital to have a full-time janitorial staff that is always cleaning, wiping, and sanitizing high-touch surface areas, like doorknobs and handles, elevator buttons, handrails, etc. You also need to pay special attention to your carpets and other upholstery in the office, as they can hold on to allergens and irritants. Vacuuming often, as well as sanitizing your carpets by hiring us for a professional steam cleaning treatment, will help remove these allergens and other contaminants. Be sure to include regular carpet cleaning services throughout your building and offices.
Proper ventilation and indoor air quality will be your biggest weapons in the fight to reduce allergen exposure. You should consider solutions that are tough on allergens and germs, but gentle on the lungs. Our ActivePure® air purification products work to sanitize both air and surfaces without the use of any chemicals, and many of those products do not emit our ozone. It’s a solution that is tailor-made to minimize springtime allergens in the office.
