Some statistics tell us that the average life expectancy of the average person in the United Kingdom is approximately 79 years. It is also believed that the three main reasons that people are living increasingly longer lives are because of food supply and nutrition, health as well as hygiene.
In other words we could say that it all boils down to having a well-balanced diet, doing some exercise and a clean environment; although this might be an over simplification of the above reasons it is none the less the basis of living a well-balanced lifestyle. The average individual is by and large responsible for what they eat how much exercise they do and lastly how clean they and their general surroundings are. Personal hygiene and cleanliness in the domestic environment is most definitely a matter of individual choice and responsibility, whereas the cleanliness of the office, workplace and other general public areas can be attributed to cleaning companies. In London just as in many other developed modern cities, cleaning services and professional cleaners play a major role in keeping public areas as clean as possible, however every individual also needs to take some responsibility.
Personal Hygiene, Toxic Chemicals and a Healthy Office
Office hygiene is more than simply having your favourite office cleaning company in London come in and clean the carpet, kitchen and toilets, empty the bins etc; it also has a lot to do with cleaning products as well as the personal hygiene standards of employees. Good personal hygiene will ensure that employees are less likely to pass on harmful germs and bacteria to one another, which in turn means a healthier, happier and more productive office and workforce.
The air quality indoors is believed to be as much as 5 times more polluted than it is outdoors which basically means that office workers and all who mostly work indoors spend the majority of the day breathing in polluted air. This polluted air is due to mankind’s own doing and some of the toxins in the workplace will be from the products used during office cleaning services, from personal care products (deodorants etc.), air fresheners as well as carbon from printers and photo copiers. These are just some of the sources of the pollutants we breathe in on a daily basis; if we add to these, dust from unclean floors, carpets etc. it is unsurprising that our health can suffer.
