Office Allergy Alert: Cleaning Practices to Create a Healthier Workspace

Did you know that a seemingly clean office could still be harboring allergens, making life miserable for those with sensitivities? At Eids Cleaning and Consulting in St. Paul, MN, we specialize in cleaning protocols that not only make your workspace look spotless but also contribute to a healthier and more comfortable environment for everyone.

Common Office Allergens

  • Dust mites: These microscopic creatures thrive in carpets, upholstery, and fabrics.
  • Mold: Hidden moisture, like in neglected ceiling tiles or under sinks, can lead to mold growth.
  • Pet dander: Even in pet-free offices, dander can linger from employees' clothing.
  • Pollen: Finds its way in through open doors, windows, and ventilation systems.
  • Cleaning products: Harsh chemicals in some cleaners can be irritants themselves.

Cleaning Tactics to Minimize Allergens

  • Deep and Detailed: Regular vacuuming is good, but professional deep cleaning goes further to remove allergens trapped deep in carpets and upholstery.
  • Focus on Fabrics: Cleaning curtains, blinds, chairs, and any fabric-covered surfaces is essential.
  • HEPA Filtration: Our vacuums and equipment use HEPA filters to trap the finest particles.
  • Go Green: We prioritize eco-friendly cleaning products that are less likely to trigger sensitivities.
  • Air Quality: Recommend good ventilation and possibly air purifiers to your clients, especially in older buildings.

Beyond Cleaning: Additional Tips for Employers

  • Declutter: Fewer surfaces mean less space for dust to accumulate.
  • Grooming Policies: Consider if it's appropriate to gently address issues like strong perfumes or visible pet hair on clothing.
  • Be Proactive: Regular professional cleaning from Eids Cleaning and Consulting provides a baseline to prevent allergen buildup.

A Healthier Office for All

By taking these steps, you not only help those with allergies, but you can improve air quality and overall well-being for everyone in your office.
