National Cleaning Week was created by The International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA) and occurs annually during the 4th week of March. This week-long event represents a unique opportunity to celebrate the value of clean, raise public awareness, honor fellow cleaning industry professionals and is helping to change the way the world sees the commercial cleaning and janitorial industry and the value it brings to businesses across the country.
As most businesses are starting to recover from COVID-19 related shutdowns, proper cleaning and disinfecting play an essential role in boosting confidence that workplaces and businesses are safe to return to for employees and customers.
In January, 2022, 2.3 percent of the American work force was home sick, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics — three times that of a typical pre-pandemic month. The time employees take away from the workplace annually can cost upwards of $225B and in addition to the direct costs, unplanned absences cause a significant decrease in productivity and a huge drop in sales.
Now more than ever, cleaning is a critical business investment that not only keeps customers and employees safe, but also improves bottom lines for facilities.
Germ-spread illnesses such as cold, flu, headaches, and now COVID-19 are the most common causes of short-term employee absences. An un-sanitized space can have a huge impact on employee productivity and a negative impact on customer experience, while a clean space has been shown to increase productivity and sales while also preventing the transmission of infectious diseases and protect employees, customers and tenants. That being said, a relatively modest investment in an effective cleaning and disinfecting program can help to avoid and significantly reduce the health and economic impacts of infectious diseases. This results in the “value of a clean workplace”.
