Easter is just around the corner, the daffodils are starting to bloom and there have been a few days when it’s almost felt warm enough to leave the coat at home. Spring is definitely on the horizon. However, while that means lighter mornings and more daylight hours, all that bright sunshine can also be incredibly harsh when it comes to exposing the smallest flaws in your office interiors. That’s particularly so when it comes to glass surfaces – especially windows.
Glass surfaces require maintenance
Today, it’s common for office buildings to have multiple glass surfaces and large windows are very common. Most employers recognise the benefits for staff of ensuring plenty of natural light and modern office blocks, in particular, are constructed with as much exposure to this as possible. However, while the thinking behind this is logical, in order to get the most from that investment in wellbeing, those windows need to be properly maintained. Cleaning is an essential part of the maintenance process for windows – without it, all the benefits of natural light, as well as any views, can be completely lost.
How cleaning can transform your office
The benefits of cleaning windows and glass surfaces are often only fully obvious after cleaning has taken place. It’s very easy to get used to a situation, whether that’s less availability of natural light or the gloom that can be created by the sun trying to break through layers of dust or dirt. However, a single clean can demonstrate just what a difference taking proper care of windows and glass surfaces can really make.
Cleanliness of interiors
You may be spending a fortune on a cleaning service to ensure that your interiors always look spotless. However, if the office windows are grubby and dusty you probably always feel like no amount of cleaning is ever enough.
No one – staff or clients – wants to be in a gloomy atmosphere for very long. It can be demotivating and even affect productivity. However, a lack of natural light caused by dirty windows can create exactly this kind of feeling in your office. The end result will be that others simply don’t want to be there and they may be left feeling tired or a little low as a result of spending time in your building.
A lack of environmental care = a lack of professional care
Grimy windows don’t make a very good first impression. It simply doesn’t make sense to spend time and money nurturing brand reputation only to then convey an impression of carelessness because of something as simple as not getting the windows cleaned.
Professional window cleaning can transform the way employees, visitors and clients experience your office on a day-to-day basis. Not only will it ensure that the interior spaces receive as much natural light as possible but it will show off investment in an aesthetic in its best light too. You’ll also have an office that you can be proud of and one that is aligned with standards of professionalism you’ve worked hard to achieve.
