Cleaning Supplies in New England for Cold and Flu Season

\"TouchThe vast majority of office employees venture into work even when they know they have a cold or the flu, according to a survey recently conducted by Staples. Almost 90 percent admit coming into work when they are sick, up from 60 percent in 2011 and 80 percent in 2012.

Most participants stated they came into work while sick because they did not want to fall behind on their tasks, but spreading germs can cause big problems for businesses. Every year, flu season leads to billions of dollars in productivity and over 70 million missed workdays. Promoting healthy habits is absolutely critical to avoiding these losses and keeping your office healthy.

Your First Line of Defense: Cleaning Supplies in New England

An effective cleaning program is your business\’s best line of defense against cold and flu germs. To maintain a healthier environment in your facility, follow these steps:

Provide Hand Sanitizer

Place hand sanitizers in common areas, like the break room, lobby and meeting spaces, to encourage use.

Go Touchless

Touchless dispensers in restrooms and other common areas drastically cut down the risk of cross contamination and help your employees stay healthy. These innovative dispensers allow your employees and visitors to access hand sanitizer, toilet tissue and paper towels without spreading or contracting germs.


Instruct your cleaning crew to thoroughly sanitize frequently-touched objects, including door handles, telephones, computer keyboards and toilet handles. These areas are frequently overlooked, but they should be wiped down with a disinfectant each day to reduce germs and keep your office healthy.

These cleaning supplies in New England will help keep your facility attractive, happy and healthy all through cold and flu season. To learn more about reducing germs in your business, contact one of our team members today at 1-800-242-1400.
