Home And Workplace Health And Safety
Health and safety in the workplace is of paramount importance.
This not only means ensuring that workspaces are kept clean and
uncluttered and that adequate floor space is provided. It is also
important that employees are subjected to as little dust, dirt, and
bacteria as possible. A large amount of electrical and computer
equipment in a typical office produces a similarly large amount of
dust and other dirt. While the carpets may be vacuumed regularly and
desks dusted, the blinds are often overlooked.
Are Your Blinds A Safe Haven For Dust And Dirt?
However, if you were to inspect your office blinds right now, then
it is highly likely that they are harbouring a lot of dust and dirt.
Within this dirt are bacteria that could be causing harm to the
people in your office. As air flows around the office environment,
so too do the bacteria that have effectively been filtered by the
Too much dust in the atmosphere is certainly not healthy for any
employees that suffer from asthma or similar breathing difficulties.
Dust allergies are also one of the more common complaints among
people of all ages and another factor to consider when looking into
blind cleaning services. Most offices look to the cleaning of
carpets in order to remedy the situation, and while this is a good
start, it should not be the whole story.
Problems Caused By Dirty Blinds
Dust mites are not the only living problem that could be hiding in
your blinds either. Flies, cockroaches, and other insects are known
to carry diseases and debris from these insects are often found on
blinds. These can cause allergic reactions, itchy and flaky skin,
rhinitis, bronchitis, dermatitis, and much more. Some of the common
symptoms of these include altered sleep patterns and fatigue.
Keeping your work force in prime health should not just be considered a
necessity borne of health and safety regulations either. Allergies
and fatigue lead to reduced work rates and increased absenteeism;
both of which cause your business to lose money and should be
prevented where possible.
