Green Cleaning Services Address the Challenges of Employees who Come Into Work Sick

Due to compulsory attendance and a lack of data, the number of students from kindergarten to college who go to class sick is unknown, though the number of sites offering ‘classroom survival’ advice for ill college students should be telling.

However, studies have shown that an approximate 80% of your workforce is coming into the office sick and infecting everyone else, including your customers.

This behavior is especially problematic in the healthcare industry, where;

Over 40% of surveyed US health care personnel worked with self-reported ILI [Influenza Like Illness].

By occupation, pharmacists and physicians were most likely to work with ILI.

By work setting, hospital-based personnel were the most likely to work with ILI.

The number is even higher for food service workers.

According to a recent article by National Public Radio (NPR);

Fifty-one percent of food workers — who do everything from grow and process food to cook and serve it — said they “always” or “frequently” go to work when they’re sick.

An additional 38 percent said they go to work sick “sometimes.”

Janitorial Services Prevent the Spread of Pathogens Through Fly Control

Flies–like you needed another reason to hate them.

Flies–simultaneously disgusting and annoying–appear to be the purveyor of a number of germs and bacteria that have, apparently, been ‘overlooked’ by public health officials for years.

According to a recent article published by Infection Control Today;

In a study of the microbiomes of 116 houseflies and blowflies from three different continents, researchers found, in some cases, these flies carried hundreds of different species of bacteria, many of which are harmful to humans.

Because flies often live close to humans, scientists have long suspected they played a role in carrying and spreading diseases.

Green Cleaning Services Reduces Risks to Lung Health

Conventional cleaning products, specifically those containing bleach or hydrogen peroxide, have been tied to increased instances of eye irritation, breathing issues and, even after relatively short-term exposure, chronic issues, such as COPD.

According to a recent article by CleanLink;

Researchers have found cleaning products containing a mixture of hydrogen peroxide (HP), peracetic acid (PAA) and acetic acid (AA), can trigger eye irritation and breathing problems, even at low exposure levels, according to an article on the Chemical Watch website.

The recent study observed chronic health problems in cleaning staff at a hospital where a new sporicidal product containing the three substances was introduced 16 months prior.

Further;

Doctors in France recently found that regularly using disinfectants can be linked to a higher risk of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

According to ScienceDaily, the European Lung Foundation supported studies involving frequent exposure and found that “specific chemicals in disinfectants were associated with a 22 to 32 percent increased risk of developing COPD.”

The findings were a result of a decades-long study involving over 55,000 female registered nurses who were exposed to various disinfectants while on the job.

Results indicate that staff that used disinfectants to clean surfaces at least once a week had a 22 percent increased risk of developing COPD.
