It’s well-known that natural light plays an important role in any office, public or school building in Europe, as natural light is vital to our wellbeing and contributes to your overall productivity. In fact, most newly built buildings will be designed with natural light in mind to ensure that enough enters the building once construction is complete. Many people know that sunlight is a natural source of vitamin D, however, they’re not aware of why this source of vitamin D is so beneficial to our health. Although sunlight doesn’t directly provide our bodies with vitamin D, it does help our bodies to produce it.
Improved exposure to natural light results in an increase in overall productivity. Particularly in the workplace, natural light has been linked to an improvement in efficiency as well as a reduction in illness.
Not only does natural light help to improve our physical health and productivity, but it also helps our body clocks to keep time. There’s no doubting how important our circadian rhythms are- they’re essential rhythms that our body uses to coordinate all functions from digestion to cell regeneration.
Furthermore, natural light helps to increase psychological wellbeing. The benefits of natural light on the way we feel don’t just apply to our physical wellbeing, but also our psychological health and mood. Sometimes, a lack of daylight can make us feel depressed and anxious. It has also been well documented that Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) symptoms can be made worse by not being exposed to enough sunlight for a sufficient amount of time during the daylight hours.
Wherever natural light is brought into a building, it’s highly likely that it will be done so via windows. Therefore, to ensure the right amount of light can enter the room it is also important to ensure that these windows are kept clean, as allowing them to become dirty will not only look unpleasant and tarnish the buildings aesthetic, but it will also have negative effects on those who are inside.
In a recent case study, it was highlighted the importance of maintaining exterior window surfaces to ensure that plenty of natural light can enter a building. We used our expertise in commercial window cleaning and provided a one off clean to high level windows to the Comland building in Wokingham. The window clean helped to increase the productivity of staff and create a pleasant work environment in and around the building.
The same is true for environments such as schools, hospitals and hotels where the occupants could potentially spend an extended amount of time in or around the building. Given the size and scale of these buildings, it can sometimes be a task that requires specialist knowledge and expertise. Window cleaning for large buildings like schools, hospitals and office blocks needs to be done to a high standard because of the scale of the job- if some windows are missed or overlooked it could potentially stick out amongst the clean.
