First impressions of your company and services start the moment people set foot inside your door. Spotless floors make your business shine. Dingy, scuffed, grimy and muddy floors leave customers, clients and vendors with a ho-hum feel about your business. When the public views your company as unclean and unprofessional, you lose money.
And did you know that every shoe, loafer, boot, pump, sneaker and flip-flop that enters your building might be making your employees sick?
Dishing the Dirt on Floor Germs
During inclement weather, guests and employees often track in moisture, bringing along bacteria and viruses that cling to flooring and carpet. Grout between floor tiles is porous and quickly becomes home to germs and mold. Dirt, dust and debris build up on floors regardless of the weather outside. Pollen that clings to footwear and clothes is a year-round problem in many parts of the country. In a business setting, pollen is the culprit for hay fever and asthma flare-ups.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association, the average person sheds roughly 30,000 to 40,000 skin flakes each day.1 With a number of people inside your building at one time, those millions and billions of cast-off flakes wedge into carpet fibers and feed dust mites. Dust mite dung (yuk!) causes indoor allergies. Spilled liquids and food also wick deeply into carpet fibers and the pad, inviting molds and odors to flourish and spur on more workplace allergies.
In addition, Dr. Philip Tierno, a microbiologist at NYU Langone Medical Center, states that carpet fibers hosts 200,000 bacteria per square inch—4,000 times filthier than a toilet seat!2 It’s the E. coli, salmonella and staphylococcus lurking among these germs that cause employees digestive upset, respiratory illness, allergic reactions and more. Ill employees take sick leave or remain in the office but are unproductive. All this affects your bottom line. Your floors may be to blame.
