You cannot take cleanliness at your workplace for granted. This will do many harms to your business that we will discuss in this blog.
However, before initiating the discussion, I would want to know from you if you are serious to cleanliness.
I know the answer. Everyone will nod in response, and you cannot be an exception to this.
So, the next question is, what have you done for this?
Most of you will say you have assigned this job to your office boy. Your office boy takes care of the cleaning at your workplace. He cleans the floor, toilets, and workstations daily.
To those who have this answer, I would say you are not serious about the cleanliness at your workplace and taking this for granted. This attitude towards cleanliness can affect your business interest. So, change it right away.
I know your question – “How could you say this that I am not taking cleanliness at my own office seriously.”
If you are asking this question angrily thinking my statement to be offensive, I would say I do not have any such intention. Do not misread me. What will I get by doing it? I am your friend and I want you to see growing in your professional life.
This is because your office boy is not the right person to take care of the cleanliness at your workplace, so he cannot provide the best cleaning at your workplace. He cannot make it fully hygienic. How could I say this? This is because he has not taken any training in professional cleaning, so he does not know the advanced cleaning techniques and products. He does not have access to advanced cleaning tools. Moreover, he may be using chemical based cleaning products to take care of your product that is not good for the health of people at all.
By now, you must have got the point why I said this could harm your business. What harms? Here are some points that will let you know the probable results of taking cleanliness for granted and simultaneously these points will explain you why cleanliness matters for your workplace.

If you are not serious about the cleanliness and hygiene of the workplace that you are running, then how you can be sincere for your customers. They will avoid their next visit to your place and simultaneously not to forget to mention the environment in your office when somebody will take your name. Therefore, this will have a direct impact on your return on investment.

How do you feel when you visit to any of your clients who has a very dirty or unhygienic environment? You feel bad and want to avoid next visit to him, right? The same will be the response of your clients if they find your place to be dirty and unhygienic. You cannot say anything to any client because you are making money from him, but your client has other options as well. s
