Barrington Commercial Cleaning – Problems with Dust mites

Dust mite allergy is an allergic reaction to microscopic bugs that live in dust. Signs of dust mite allergy include those related to hay fever, such as sneezing and runny nose.

Many people with dust mite allergy also experience signs of asthma, such as wheezing and difficulty breathing.  This can be a huge hazard to health and productivity.

Dust mites, relatives of the spider, are too small to see without a microscope. Dust mites eat skin cells shed by people, and they thrive in warm, humid environments. In most homes, bedding, upholstered furniture and carpeting provide an ideal environment for dust mites.

Steps to reduce the number of dust mites in your office can often control dust mite problems.

Regular and through cleaning is the first step.

What’s your bottom line, and would it be more cost effective to do it yourself, have an employee do it, or hire an in-house cleaner?

Before you start the process of accepting bids, it’s important to know what your bottom line is.

Hiring a professional cleaning company is not cheap.  The old saying goes, “You get what you pay for,” and it rings true in hiring a cleaning service.

Could you clean yourself? This would be the most cost effective way to slash your cleaning budget, but consider that your time is valuable.

Calculate your own hourly worth.  Ask yourself if it’s advantageous to spend your time emptying trash and scrubbing toilets.

Another option is to have your employees clean.  This option can really save you money.  On the other hand, it may be an added burden to their already busy day.  Again you must calculate the costs in wages, productivity and even moral.

And the last possibility is hiring an in-house cleaner.  The hidden cost is in management, HR and taxes.   This means hiring, firing, training, paperwork, inspections, stocking supplies, etc.

Make careful calculations to determine your best option.
