Keep allergens (and sneezes) from invading your workplace this spring with professional cleaning services for allergies!
While spring is mostly a time for celebration as the frigid winter weather comes to an end across the Midwest, it also marks the arrival of allergy season for an estimated 50 million Americans.
As trees, grasses, and other plants bloom, they release pollen that can trigger allergy symptoms such as itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, and a runny nose. Those allergens can make their way into your workplace through windows, doors, and on the shoes and clothing of employees and visitors.
Because of that, early spring is an excellent time to schedule a deep cleaning of your workspace to eliminate allergens and keep your employees and guests happy and healthy.
The professional cleaning services for allergies we recommend this time of year include:
- Dusting and vacuuming
- Carpet extractions
- Disinfecting high-touch areas
- Soft surface sanitization
Read on to learn more about these professional cleaning services for allergies!
Dusting and vacuuming
Dusting and vacuuming can be done daily or weekly, and it’s a good starting point come allergy season. Our professionally trained cleaners will dust nearly every surface, not only desktops and countertops but higher-up areas such as the tops of shelves and ceilings as well, as these often-forgotten areas accumulate a tremendous amount of dust and allergens.
A carpet extractor is a powerful carpet cleaning tool that uses water, pressure, suction, and a chemical cleaner to extract dirt and stains from deep in the fibers of the carpet.
Your workplace’s carpets see a lot of traffic, and with many high-performance carpets, stains and everyday wear and tear might not be visible to the naked eye. But just because you can’t see the dirt and debris doesn’t mean it’s not there! That’s why scheduling quarterly (or even monthly, depending on the number of employees and visitors your office has) carpet extractions is essential to prevent a buildup of allergens in your space.
Disinfecting high-touch areas
We recommend daily disinfecting of frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, common-use electronics such as printers and copiers, and your kitchen or breakroom area. This service doesn’t just help eliminate any allergens that people track into your office with them during the spring months — it’s a good practice to adopt to help reduce your team’s risk of allergies and illness year-round.
Soft surface sanitization
Unlike our clothes, textiles in an office cannot be easily or frequently laundered to remove allergens from their fibers, making soft surface sanitizing essential during allergy season. Using the latest technology and anti-microbial solutions on drapes, rugs, carpets, and other upholstered surfaces as part of your office’s cleaning protocols can go a long way toward keeping your team healthy during spring allergy season.
At KleenMark, we deliver professional cleaning services for allergies that can keep your team and customers happy and healthy during allergy season and beyond.
