Keeping your office as free from allergens as possible
Those in the know have already performed an early spring cleaning of their offices, getting rid of salt stains and the grime tracked in on floors and carpets from our harsh winter. But now we need to talk in depth about allergy sufferers, not only those facing early spring allergies but those reacting to year round allergens.
Pollen is a trigger for spring allergies, causing such symptoms as runny noses and itchy, watery red eyes and in turn that can make it difficult for those allergic office staff to concentrate. As we walk into our offices pollen is tracked in on our shoes and shed off of our clothes and where does it end up, but adhering to everything in the office as pollen is a sticky substance. This is why State Building Maintenance advises your office to set up a daily cleaning routine to make life easier for your staff.
Not only is pollen a culprit in making life difficult for those suffering from allergies but general organic spills from beverages and food can in themselves create problems. Moisture left unattended can cause mould and mildew to grow. Mould and mildew pose serious health risks and will exacerbate asthma symptoms. Asthma is a life threatening disease.
A person can shed enough skin in a day to feed a million dust mites. Some people are allergic to the fecal matter that is left behind by dust mites causing such allergic symptoms as wheezing, coughing and stuffy, runny noses. A deep vacuuming of all carpets, rugs and soft materials is essential A steam cleaning of carpets and soft materials is what is actually needed to kill off the dust mites. Remember, we spend many hours in the office, dust mites do not just live in your home. Allergic reactions to the fecal matter can trigger serious asthma attacks.
Pollen, spills and dust mites, contributing factors to allergic reactions, are difficult to keep on top of unless a cleaning regime is set up to include, a thorough daily cleaning of your offices, a deep vacuuming, daily, of all carpets and upholstery and a program set up on a regular basis to steam clean your carpets and soft materials. Please let us help you keep your office allergen free.
