Symptoms can range from itchy, watery eyes and runny noses, to potentially more serious ailments that can affect people’s ability to work.

  1. Understand the value of professional grade cleaning. Maintaining the cleanliness of the areas in which employees spend the most time is a very important aspect of fighting the spread of allergens. A professional grade cleaning of high traffic and work areas may significantly improve employee’s day to day levels of comfort.
  2. Consider green cleaning. In some situations, chemical components of cleaning products can trigger allergic reactions, especially for eyes and nostrils. Consider using a cleaning service that uses environmentally-friendly products.
  3. Utilize technology. By using a cleaning service that utilizes more advanced cleaning equipment, the quality of your cleaning can improve significantly. For example, high filtration vacuums have more cleaning power than upright vacuums and can improve indoor air quality.
