A common misconception business owners have is that buying and nurturing their own office plants would be cheaper than opting for plant hire. Although purchasing the plants may seem affordable, they forget to factor in the costs that come with maintaining these plants. As such, more and more employers are opting to seek plant hire rather than be burdened with this responsibility. Here are some of the benefits of opting for plant hire for your office.
Plant hire contractors know the best location
Have you ever purchased a plant and, try as you might to keep it alive, it dies on you? One of the reasons for this is wrong positioning. It would be a pity to purchase a good amount of plants only for them to slowly die off since you did not know the best locations to situate them at your office. With plant hire, the contractors will deliver the plants and ensure that they are put in the best possible locations to help them thrive. This is not done haphazardly, as they will also put into consideration the overall layout of your office to ensure that, although these plants are in the best locations, they do not interfere with your workers or clients.
Plant hire enhances the air quality in the office
Today, most office buildings tend to be climate controlled. As such, employees will rarely take the time to open windows or go out for some fresh air, as the temperature in the office almost always feels just right. The problem with this, though, is that germs and bacteria have a higher chance of recirculating in the air. This in turn makes your workers more susceptible to falling ill and passing on common maladies to each other. With plant hire, you ensure that your office's environment has an enhanced production of oxygen. The more plants the better! As such, they are not only aesthetically appealing but also work toward keeping all your employees healthier by filtering the stale carbon dioxide and emitting fresh oxygen.
Plants can act as sound insulators
There is nothing as frustrating as a noisy office space. Not only is it hard to communicate over the chatter, but it also makes it harder for employees to concentrate. If you own a business that requires people to be talking all day, such as a call centre, plant hire can act as great sound insulation for your office. The plant hire contractors know how to strategically place these plants to ensure that they absorb as much sound as possible, thus keeping the noise decibels low.
