Spring is an exciting time of year, but it’s also a time where many people suffer from seasonal allergies. If you’ve noticed that an increasing number of people are sneezing, wheezing and sniffling (and that you’re constantly replacing tissues in the office!), then it’s time to look at how you can curb springtime allergies with allergen-free office cleaning services.
Some common symptoms of allergies include nasal congestion, runny nose, coughing, itchy eyes and sneezing. Different people are allergic to different things, so it’s not always easy to pinpoint and eliminate all elements in your environment.
If you are a building manager or you run an office, here are a few things that you can do in and around your premises – and a few things that you can suggest to staff – to lessen the potential impact of pollen on allergies this season:
Closing windows at certain times
Pollen makes its way into the building through windows and doors. While you can’t keep everything shut throughout the day, it may be wise to keep certain windows and doors near staff closed and switch to the use of an air conditioning system to avoid stuffiness indoors.
Host a knowledge sharing workshop
Ask a local allergist or doctor to advise your staff about the appropriate steps to take if they experience symptoms of allergies. This can help people avoid feeling miserable and taking unnecessary time off work.
Hire office cleaning services
Dust and pollen can easily spread throughout an office environment if this building isn’t regularly cleaned. A commercial cleaning company can take care of everything from carpet cleaning and other deep cleaning services to ensuring that dust, dirt, grime and allergy-fuelling elements don’t build up indoors.
