Office Cleaning

by / Monday, 07 July 2014 / Published in Uncategorized

A recent study performed by the Center for Facilities Research and co-sponsored by the International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA) found that a lack of cleanliness often becomes such a distraction in the workplace that it decreases learning and productivity that would normally be taking place.

Cleanliness and learning in Higher Education, the name of the study, was conducted by Jefferey Campbell, Ph.D. He is the chair of the facilities management program at Brigham Young University. There were 1,481 people polled for the study and 88 percent of people reported that concentration, productivity, and learning become hindered when:

  • A visible buildup of dirt and/or floor finish in corners and along walls
  • Base molding is dull and dingy with streaks or splashes
  • All vertical and horizontal surfaces have conspicuous dust, dirt, marks, smudges and fingerprints
  • Lamp fixtures are dirty and some are burned out
  • Trash receptacles contain old trash and are stained and smell sour
