Why a dirty office makes us sick

Uncleanly offices are breeding grounds for employee sicknesses. In fact, workers suffering from building-related illnesses even has a term – “sick building syndrome”. But employees aren’t the only ones suffering – their companies suffer too, costing the company billions in lost productivity, sick days and more. Long story short, employee absenteeism from sickness ends up being a greater burden on business owners than the cost of a cleaning crew!

Building-Related Diseases

Employees that have illnesses at work from constant exposure, but leave work only to feel perfectly fine and have those symptoms disappear are known to experience “sick building syndrome” Often there are a few culprits to falling sick in work spaces. Indoor air, sealed windows, offices lacking fresh air, those with old ventilation systems with dusty vents. Older buildings also have old carpeting that hasn’t been cleaned, with dust mites, dead hair/skin/nail, and other odor causing bacteria as the root of the problem. Even newer buildings have many workers complaining of blasting cold indoor air circulating the same germs around. Plus, workers may spend over 10 hours a day breathing in this air.

Building-related diseases’ results over workers mean headaches, nausea, irritability, colds, fever, respiratory problems, eye issues, allergies, asthma, and even cancer triggered by some of the more deadly molds or asbestos. Sick building syndrome has also been linked to job stress, poor work relationships, feelings of helplessness and lack of enthusiasm. The results of this over a company are harsh and include sick employees, missed deadlines, decreased productivity, low worker morale, decreased company profitability, and so on.
