June 25th, 2015 · No Comments

Did you know that plants make great commercial cleaners? That’s right! That green foliage sitting in the office corner does more for you than just look pretty. As a commercial cleaning company in Pittsburgh, PA, ServiceMaster Clean® wants your facility to look and feel its best. When our staff is not around, having plants at your place of business can provide numerous cleaning benefits.

There have been many studies done throughout the world on the effects of having indoor plant life. Here is what most researchers agree on:

  • Plants help improve indoor air quality
  • Plants can improve employee performance and productivity
  • Indoor plants help to reduce sick building syndrome
  • Stress and negative feelings are lowered by having indoor plants
  • Plants reduce office noise

One of the things that indoors plants do best is reduce air pollution. Outdoor gaseous pollutants, as well as indoor VOCs, contaminate your office air. Indoor plants have been found to reduce the following contaminants: nitrogen, sulfur oxides, ozone, air toxics, and particulates. They are able to do this because of their natural plant filtration system. Their leaves and roots capture these contaminants and release oxygen back into the air. This process is done on a 24/7 basis and is a natural way for VOCs to be removed from your air. Indoor plants also reduce carbon dioxide by 10-25%.

From a health perspective, plants can do wonders for the well-being of your employees. Studies done in several countries confirmed that plants could greatly reduce fatigue, headaches, dry throat, coughing, and dry skin. With decreased symptoms and overall employee sickness, companies would experience less employee absenteeism.

Plants are great to have in your facility because of the many benefits they offer for the cleanliness and wellbeing of the building and its occupants. Of course, they can’t do it all. For commercial cleaning in Pittsburgh, PA contact ServiceMaster Clean today!
