A Visit From Sparkling Clean

By | sparkling clean

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse……

You set down the classic poem by Clement Clark Moore.  “A Visit From St. Nicholas”, better known as “The Night Before Christmas”, was first published anonymously in 1823, and has become synonymous with Christmas.

You’re sipping eggnog on the rocks, wearing your ugly Christmas sweater, while your children bounce off the walls, excited for their expected bounty the next morning.  They’ve eaten their share of candy and sweets, and have set out a plate of cookies for santa, and carrots for the reindeer.  A glass of milk is poured and set in the fridge, so as not to spoil, and a letter to Santa has been left next to the aforementioned North Pole’s Christmas fuel.  The children sign the card in standard Crayola, with careful instructions and a kind gesture to remember the cold glass of milk left for Santa in the refrigerator.

It’s time for the children to go to bed.  You tuck them in, and they forcefully close their eyes.  Soon sugar plums, will be dancing through their heads.  Returning to your chair, you take a moment to think about your week.  The first sign of the holiday break, was when the receptionist let out a cheer, “Everyone- Sparkling Clean will soon be here!”

Coming home to a festive home during the holidays is one thing, but coming home to a clean festive home during the holidays is another.  When you’ve finished over-indulging and you’re ready to return to the office, you’ll want the same thing: to come back to a clean workspace. 

We encourage you all to take the time to spend with family and loved ones.  Your office is your home away from home, and we hope that when you return, that it’s as clean, inviting and comfortable as possible for you to be at. 

“Merry Christmas to all, and to all a goodnight!”

Scent Free Zone

By | Uncategorised

Today, if you were to poll most workspaces in North America, you may find that there is an overwhelming shift towards scent-free environments.

Government buildings, healthcare offices, hospitals, schools- most of these will be scent-free.

There are positives to this, as those with sensitivities no longer have to be affected in the workplace by that colleague that bathes in Drakkar Noir like it’s 1996, but there are negatives to this as well.

Sometimes, a “bad” scent, can outweigh the absence of a scent.  For instance, you know that coworker who insists that they DON’T need deodorant?  They do.  They really, really, really do.

 And perhaps the heavy Chanel worn by Candace in Accounts Receivable is masking her morning cigarette, and you should thank her for that.  It’s the lesser evil, after all.  Isn’t it?

There are better alternatives to this.  I won’t go into detail, but you can consult your pharmacist if you need a deodorant for your one-of-a-kind skin sensitivity issue, and this deodorant probably won’t burden any of those in your workplace with scent allergies.  And better yet, you won’t have to maintain that reputation as “BO Brad” from the 3rd floor, also known as, “don’t go in the elevator after BO Brad,” and the worldly renown, “Shawarma King,” because you smell like a shawarma that someone left on the seat of a warm bus.

Washrooms really suffer from scent-free zones as well.  Sparkling Clean will certainly ensure that if you have a scent-free office, that they can recommend and use products for your high traffic, high danger areas that won’t affect people with allergies or sensitivities.

They’ll have soaps, cleaners, sprays, etc. that will be sure to make your office free of dust, germs, harmful bacteria and other allergens, and will double down on preventing odours as well- keeping everyone happy.

Your scent-free zone doesn’t have to be an odour-filled zone.

“Always Sparkling Clean.”
