No one wants to work in an unhygienic environment, especially not during the coronavirus pandemic. In order to prevent productivity losses caused by employees taking sick leave, you need to identify and promptly deal with common hygiene-related problems.
The 4 most common workplace hygiene issues are:
There are no two ways about it: you either need to hire in-house janitors, or get in touch with a trusted commercial cleaning service and create a personalized cleaning plan. Relying on the nightly cleanings provided by your landlord is unlikely to yield acceptable results.

Here’s how to deal with this situation:
