How to create a healthy workplace with commercial cleaning
A clean workplace is not just about aesthetics—it’s a fundamental factor in promoting a healthy and productive work environment.
Commercial cleaning plays a pivotal role in maintaining the well-being of employees and the overall success of a business.
In this blog, we’ll explore the importance of a clean workplace, practical tips for creating and maintaining a healthy work environment and how Cleaning Techniques Ltd can help you.
The importance of a clean workplace
1- Employee health and well-being
If the pandemic taught us anything, it’s taught us that a healthy workplace is a clean workplace.
Workplaces are communal spaces where germs can easily spread. Commercial cleaning, especially during flu seasons or health crises, is crucial for disinfecting surfaces and minimising the risk of infectious diseases.
But it isn’t just about the germs themselves – it is also about the anxiety that some feel about the presence of invisible bugs.
In a post-pandemic world of heightened health awareness, regular commercial cleaning reduces anxiety and absenteeism, ensuring that employees can perform at their best.
2- Boosting employee morale, productivity and safety
Absenteeism isn’t the only concern facing employers. When employees have the option of working from home as a result of the pandemic, a tidy and well-maintained environment contributes to just the kind of positive atmosphere that might encourage them back into the workplace.
Commercial cleaning helps employees feel safe and motivated, helps them take pride in their work and improves their morale. This positive morale can translate into increased productivity and job satisfaction, not only for the individual employee but for the team as a whole.

3- Mitigating allergies and respiratory issues
Health concerns are not just a winter issue. Employees with allergies or respiratory issues can be significantly affected by poor indoor air quality all year round. Dust, pollen, allergens, and pollutants can accumulate over time, affecting air quality.
At Cleaning Technique Ltd, our service begins with dusting and vacuuming. When carried out regularly, these remove allergens, making cleaner and healthier air for employees to breathe, especially those with sensitivities.
Practical tips for creating a healthy workplace with commercial cleaning
1- Develop a cleaning schedule
It’s important to establish a regular cleaning schedule that includes daily, weekly, and monthly tasks. It’s also advisable to schedule a periodic deep clean including carpet, window, or upholstery cleaning.
This ensures that all areas of the workplace receive attention, from high-traffic zones to commonly overlooked spaces. We at Cleaning Technique Ltd can help you set a schedule that suits your specific needs, at a price that suits your budget.
2- Focus on high-touch surfaces and spaces with high-tech equipment
It pays to give special attention to high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, keyboards, and shared equipment. These are the surfaces few of us normally remember to clean in our own homes – but in shared workspaces, it is essential to pay special attention to these surfaces, which are more prone to the spread of germs.
Likewise, It is essential to minimise dust in spaces where electronic equipment is used. Dust can adversely impact electronic equipment, shortening their life span and costing businesses unnecessary disruption and money.
3- Creating a culture of cleanliness
So what employer doesn’t inwardly cringe at the thought of telling their staff to consider their personal hygiene?
Investing in commercial cleaning is the best first step to creating a culture of cleanliness at the workplace, as it demonstrates a business’ concern about cleanliness. It also reinforces other strategies that you might have in place, such as providing hand sanitising stations, encouraging regular handwashing and educating staff about the importance of maintaining cleanliness in shared spaces.
In short, if you expect your staff to be committed to hygiene, you need to demonstrate that by investing in the kind of regular, top-quality, effective commercial cleaning that comes as standard at Cleaning Technique Ltd.
So what’s the advantage of using Cleaning Technique Ltd?
Like any commercial cleaning company, our trained staff have the expertise and equipment to thoroughly clean and disinfect your workspace, promoting a healthier environment.

We recognise that environmental impact should never be an afterthought in business these days and no one wants to be accused of greenwashing. For many of our clients, environmental concern needs to be considered in every aspect of their business.
