The office kettle

One of the most important things you can provide in any office is a kettle. At least you would think so considering how much it is used, particularly in the morning. In fact, in Britain we drink 165 million cups of tea a day, and 70 million cups of coffee each day too. So most of the UK work force are essentially powered by a lovely hot drink, like tea or coffee, especially now that the colder Autumn weather has arrived. This means that keeping the office kettle clean can be a challenge, especially with so many people sharing.

How important is a clean office kettle?

Keeping a clean office kettle is essential, and can bring many advantages to your business, including:

  • Increased productivity- the office kettle is usually shared by all staff in the same office. This means that any illness or virus can easily be transmitted from the kettle handle to other members of the office. And this increases the number of employee absences, which puts additional strain and work on those employees left behind, creating a cycle of inefficiency. Regular cleaning of shared surfaces, like the kettle, can help to minimize the spread of any illness, and keep your employees healthy and productive.
  • Heath and safety- over time, limescale can build up on the inside of your office kettle and this is a health and safety concern. As a result, descaling your office kettle should be something you consider regularly.
