Did you know that germs can affect your bottom line? The cold and influenza viruses are some of the most common causes for employee absence. If you run a business, you will not be surprised to learn that the unplanned employee absences cost companies billions every year. The value of clean is critical to your business.
So, a clean and disinfected workspace is invaluable. It can prevent the transmission of infectious diseases. And it can protect your employees, customers and tenants. A modest investment in effective cleaning/disinfecting programs can help to significantly reduce impact of infectious diseases on your bottom line.
How Much Germs Cost
The economic burden of COVID-19 is yet to be determined. But, we do know that the flu virus can cost the United States economy about $11 billion each year, according to a 2018 study. This includes reduced productivity and healthcare costs.
How to Reduce the Spread
Effective cleaning and disinfecting programs can reduce the germs. Routine cleaning removes the soil and dirt that harbors the infectious agents. Disinfecting kills the remaining pathogens that spread illness.
