The Hazards of a Dirty Office

When you work in an office space, you trust that your work environment will be kept healthy and clean. However, if your office is not cleaned properly or on a regular basis, it could quickly become unhealthy. If you find yourself working in a dirty office, spending eight hours a day for at least five days a week in the space can become hazardous to your health.

So what health issues can occur or become worse while working in a dirty office?

  • Asthma- Asthma is a breathing condition that can become serious if agitated. The individual suffering will find it hard to breath and will be unable to catch their breath. When working in a dirty office, individuals suffering from asthma may find themselves breathing in dust and mold, which can cause a negative reaction.
  • Allergies- While allergy season is known to be during the spring months, a dirty office can make allergy season last year-round. Mold, mildew, dust, and pollen can remain in your office if proper cleaning is not performed, which could leave staff sniffing and sneezing all year.
  • Eczema- This type of skin condition is caused by an irritation, which then causes itching, redness, and dryness of the skin. Different bacteria and viruses can cause a reaction as well as contact with dust mites and mold.
