Photograph of an everyday workplace

When working in an office, you come to expect certain supplies to be on hand in the case of a hygiene emergency. In only the rarest cases do you see no cleaning supplies on hand and you’d often raise the alarm as soon as you notice. Nobody wants to be in the situation of a messy sneeze, only to find that your office has been out of cleaning products for some weeks and nobody has bothered to stock up.

System Hygiene bring you today’s blog that lists just a couple of first hand supplies that your office really needs.

Floor Care

We’ve all seen it, that moment where a colleague gets up to go to lunch, precariously balancing their open food container in one hand and a beverage in the other.

Too far away to stop it, you watch in slow motion as the food falls onto the floor spreading its contents out all over that brand-new office carpet your office manager just bragged about. Acting fast in these situations is essential to stopping stains and marks sticking around.

Your office should have carpet cleaners and spot & stain removers on hand, stored away in the event this happens. If you find yourself without these, you’ll be spending the next 10 to 20 minutes hard scrubbing without making any progress on that pesky stain.

Odour Control

In the typical office where you’ll be spending every month next to a small group of people, you’re likely to have days where the odour gets out of control. It’s inevitable, someone ends up running for their bus, unprepared for the effort required and turns into work looking like they’ve just ran a marathon. Already the day’s off to a bad start and without the right hygiene products, the odour will eventually get out of control.

Ensure that your office is stocked up on odour neutralisers and deodorisers that keep the office at neutral odour levels.

Don’t leave it to the individual employee to bring in their own deodorant as this can quite often worsen the smell as not everyone has the same preference in smells. With neutralisers, it kills the bacteria without affecting everybody’s nose in the process.




Ink, Gum and  Graffiti

Sometimes, a specialist kind of gunk requires a specialist kind of cleaner. So, you'll be glad to know that we supply a wide range of profesionally formulated products to remove chewing gum from your favourite carpets and fabrics, to remove inks and markers from desk and hard surfaces, and to remove graffiti from brick, stone, concrete and masonry work.


These are only a small amount of hygiene products that you’ll need in the typical office, so get in touch with us today to see what we have on offer!
