Dirty Floors Can Hurt Your Commercial Business
Most people don’t pay attention to what’s below their feet, and the same might be true even for business managers. After all, when is the last time you really thought about your floors? An occasional vacuum or mopping might seem sufficient, but the truth is, the state of your floors can have an impact on your business in several ways. For commercial business managers, it is especially important to be attentive and put extra care in the floors in your facilities. The following are ways that dirty floors can hurt your business.
Dirty floors can ruin your brand image
While not everyone looks down upon entering a facility, dirty and unkempt floors will certainly attract unwanted attention. Visitors who see floors that have stains, marks, and scuffs are likely to view your business in a more negative light, while a floor that is clean and well-maintained is more likely to leave a positive impression on your brand.
Dirty floors can make workers sick
Dirty floors and carpets collect debris, dust, germs, and all kinds of contaminants from the shoes of people walking on them every day. The constant foot traffic can not only make the floor itself dirty, but it can also be cause for particles to be released into the air, which negatively affects the indoor air quality. Breathing in dirty air and constantly being exposed to allergens and contaminants can take a toll on your workers’ health, and since most workers spend the majority of their days indoors, it can lead to an increase in health issues.
Dirty floors can lead to decreased productivity
It’s not surprising that workers who don’t feel well don’t perform well. When the health of your workers is compromised, it means they are either staying home to recover or are coming into work sick (which is extremely common). If you’ve worked while feeling sick, you know the experience firsthand: you are working slower, making more mistakes, and the quality of your work goes down. Not only does that mean less success for the business, but it also leads to more financial burden from medical costs and missed work.
Dirty floors can affect the floors’ longevity
The longer floors are left dirty and not maintained regularly, the more they become susceptible to damage. Daily foot traffic can ruin carpet fibers, create marks and dents, and leave them festering with germs. In the long run, it becomes more costly to repair and can force you to replace the floors altogether. By taking care of them regularly, you can not only keep them clean but also make them last for years to come.
