Creating healthier workplaces
Viruses can survive on office equipment for up to 60 days in a warm environment and germs are readily transferred from these surfaces to employees’ hands. As the UK’s leading cleaning company for phones, computers and IT equipment, Initial Facilities provides services that kill bacteria and help combat the spread of colds, flu, sickness and diarrhoea in the workplace.
Research* has proven that there can be up to 400 times more bacteria on the average office workstation than a toilet seat and 60% of time off work illnesses are contracted from dirty office equipment. Increasingly, office equipment becomes contaminated by practices such as employees eating lunch at their desks, hot desking and poor personal hygiene. An unclean workplace gives a poor impression, creates a breeding ground for harmful bacteria, affects staff morale and undermines operational effectiveness.
Initial Facilities is the UK’s leading cleaning company and specialises in removing the buildup of grime and germs in the workplace to minimise the spread of infection, reduce absenteeism and the risk of equipment breakdown. We provide professional IT cleaning services that ensure our customers’ computers, telephones and other office equipment are clean, dust-free and hygienic.
