World wide web - 25 years on

What effect has the last 25 years had on the workplace


25 years of World Wide Web and Dust
Survey by European Journal - Fragrance Matters

Change all around

With the first website going online 25 years ago, a lot has changed in such a short space of time. The world has seen a change to the way offices work and function, especially with the introduction of workstations, servers, laptops, tablets and all other forms of technology, such as printers and scanners.
Even the items in the canteen or coffee room might now even be connected to the internet, such as the fridge for instance.

 

What does this all mean?

What does this all mean to the workplace and the employees? The relevance of a single workspace is still important these days even though lots of work is being done on the move even before the employees reach their desks. Whether on mobile devices, phones, tablets etc., the world wide web enables us to reach out to and endless amount of information at the touch of a button, or swipe of a finger.
When employees reach their desk in the morning all ready for the day ahead with their cup of coffee in hand and a pile in the in-tray, the last thing they really want is to wait forever for the computer to boot up or pick up the phone because they have a blue screen in front of them and they need the service department to fix it.

 

Cleanliness and Dust

There are several factors at play with maintaining computers, but fundamentally, the single most important one has to be cleanliness. Enabling a clean working office environment produces less pollutants and dust in the air. As we know, dust is a major concern in the workplace as it contributes to a significant number of computer defects and malfunctions.
Computers are being made smaller and smaller and are being asked to do more and more nowadays. Therefore, the cooling abilities of a computer are essential. Dust, left to gather inside a computer, can build up and prevent the required airflow around the processor, effectively causing it to overheat and slow, eventually to the point where it will give up.

 

Does dust really damage your computer?

Research has shown that dust, when composed of metal oxides and metals would be likely to conduct electricity and can carry static charge. This could also have an impact on the speed and efficiency of the computer, with static sensitive components such as RAM and the motherboard.
So what is the answer? Put simply, every office should have a good cleaning policy in place where a company such as ourselves are responsible for maintaining a good working environment which prevents the build-up of dirt dust and grime, which subsequently ensures the well-being of the electronic devices within the offices.

 

The knock on effect

So we come back to the employee who has arrived in the morning with coffee in hand. They sit at their desk ready for the task at hand. They switch on the computer with ideas flowing around in their head and they want to make a start. The computer could take a few seconds to start-up and they are online and away within a minute.
Conversely, your office environment hasn’t been cared for much lately. The machines are dirty and dusty, much like the light fixings in the ceilings and the blinds at the window. The computer gets switched on… a minute or so later, with the egg-timer still spinning on the screen, the employee is getting frustrated and starts to lose patience. The dust is choking the processor, but eventually it wins through and the machine starts… The web browser is opened and the employee waits with baited breath. No connection. The server is down. Same issues, same problems, different location. This time it affects everyone in the office.
Some companies spend a lot of money ensuring server rooms are spotless, clean, dust-free and air conditioned. Why? For exactly the same reason.

 

The solution to office cleaning?

Put simply, a well maintained and clean office environment can reap rewards by saving time and preventing expensive computer malfunctions. Our advice at Hawkey Office Cleaning London? Simple. Call us and we can help.

Fragrance Matters

Fragrance is a crucial factor in cleaning, survey shows.

Survey by European Journal - Fragrance Matters

Fragrance is considered by all manufacturers of cleaning products to be an important factor for them - and it has become more important over the years - according to a new international survey by ECJ (European Cleaning Journal) and IFRA UK, the fragrance association for the United Kingdom.

Lisa Hipgrave, director of IFRA UK, said: "Cleaning products and air-care are an important sector for perfumers and fragrance houses. Often, it is fragrance that is the invisible difference in buyers selecting products. Crucially fragrance plays a role in hygiene as it can reflect the ambience of the place in question and also encourage cleanliness - hand-wash, for instance, when pleasantly fragranced, encourages more enthusiastic use and therefore better hand hygiene amongst children.

"The starting point when considering fragrance is not the character or the scent but the need to ensure that it is safe and appropriate for the product in question. By using an IFRA UK member, manufacturers, distributors and end-users can be assured that the fragrance will be fit for the intended purpose".
