Staying Healthy at Work

Nampa Cleaning Company

What is your favorite part of winter? Perhaps you're completely enthralled with the bright lights, gorgeous sights, and happy times of the holidays. Maybe you'd rather avoid the whole "holiday" thing; maybe you just like breaking out the warm clothes (and the ugly sweaters!). Or, perhaps you're the kind of person who prefers the majesty and silence of a snowy winter's night, the snowflakes drifting past the window, the world sleeping under a white blanket. Whatever you love about winter, you're probably not a fan of the cold and flu viruses that come along with the cold weather.

A Look Back at 2015

We sat down with our staff at the beginning of 2016, and before looking forward, decided to look back and reflect on the things we were thankful for last year. Enjoy!

 

 

What’s Coming in 2016? An Interview with Linda Allsbury

As 2016 rolls around a lot of companies are reflecting on their wins and losses of the past year and looking towards what they can do this year to improve their businesses. There is a lot for a small business to consider when looking at how to plan for the future, many changes are expected to happen in 2016, new president, changes to the Affordable Care Act, new technological releases such as the Oculus Rift, and a leap day on February 29th. Recently I sat down with Pro Power Clean’s President, Linda Allsbury and asked her a couple of questions concerning what’s coming in the new year.

Why Tile and Grout Need Professional Care

We like to think that we can do anything. After all, with a little Internet research and a few well-picked videos, couldn't anyone write a novel, fly an airplane, invent something new, or discover a new subspecies of beetle? Okay, maybe not. But the truth is, when we put our minds to it, we can get a lot accomplished, even if it's not flying an airplane or discovering a new beetle. One area where we're fairly confident about our expertise is in cleaning. After all, we've been cleaning one way or another for most of our lives.

Cleaning the Sink

Cleaning is sort of like a battle. We fight on many fronts; we wage war on hundreds of different kinds of enemies; we have sprays, wipes, sponges, mops, brooms, and thousands of other cleaning supplies that act as our weapons arsenal. Winning the battle means beating the germs and casting an approving eye over a now-sparkling workspace, bathroom, or break room. Losing the battle means allowing germs to take hold of the places we frequent, and that can lead to the spread of disease, a drop in morale, and an overall uncomfortable workplace.

Does Your Office Need a Deep Clean?

Let's face it: offices can get filthy. Any location that hosts large numbers of people for long stretches of time is a location generally thought of as germ-covered, and the workplace is certainly no exception. However, even though our minds naturally conjure up images of public restrooms when we think of places in need of a deep clean, other areas of the office are just as guilty. How many people have used that doorknob in just one day? How many people touch the phones, the keyboards, the printers? What about the tables and desks and chairs?

Tile and Grout Cleaning

We don't often pay attention to them, but tile and grout do a lot of hard work. Tile and grout have long been regarded as an absolutely necessary team for everything from company bathrooms to functional kitchens, combining strength with cosmetic attractiveness and longevity with customization. Take a minute to consider your own company. How many rooms owe at least a fraction of their utility to the reliable surface created by tile and grout? It's true: tile and grout are important aspects of our world, and yet we often take them for granted.

Nampa Cleaning Company: Dirty Bathrooms Are a No Go

We spend a lot of our time trying not to judge a book by its cover. However, in business, things are a little different. While customers aren't necessarily judging your business by its "cover," there are a few key areas that sway their opinions. Their reactions to these areas will either draw them in or send them hurrying away without so much as a backward glance. For example, have you ever tried to work with a specific business, only to go somewhere else because you were treated rudely by the staff?

A Good First Impression

Throughout our lives, we're focused on making a "good first impression." It's a strange truth about human nature, an instinct buried so deeply within us that it often defines our relationships for the rest of our lives. Whether or not we're aware of it, we all experience first impressions on a daily basis--and though many of these first impressions prove to be incorrect later, they only show their true faces once they've been given the opportunity to wreak havoc. This is especially important for companies.

Germs in the Workplace

Human beings are social creatures. Our societies function on teamwork and unity, our cities are assembled with extreme care to maximize the number of gathering places, and almost everything we do affects or is affected by someone else. One of the places where this is most obvious is in the workplace. Humans gather in offices from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to work together, talk to customers, and get things done. Unfortunately, this unity not only brings people together--it also brings germs together, and the spread of germs in the workplace can be a big problem.
