Did you know that $60 billion in productivity are lost annually due to poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).1 This loss of productivity is partially a direct result of appearance-based cleaning, instead of health-based maintenance cleaning. In other words, how your floors are cleaned, and how often they are cleaned, significantly impacts your workforce. The same study, a collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency, showed that proper cleaning reduces airborne dust by 52%, VOCs by 49%, total bacteria by 40% and total fungi by 61%.2 This even impacts your children! Studies in the Syracuse Public School District have shown that an increase in cleaning costs led to an 11.7% increase in student attendance – a number that led to an increase of $2.5 million in additional reimbursements to the school district for increased attendance. The numbers supporting regular, professional cleaning are staggering!3
