How Housekeepers and Janitors can Benefit from Compression Socks

Housekeepers and janitors work long hours on their feet. They are cleaning, maintaining and fixing a variety of essential things in homes and offices all across the United States. Without these essential employees, homes and places of work would not be as clean and sanitized. Housekeepers and janitors handle tasks that would otherwise be neglected. But such a vital and important job can truly take a toll on a person’s legs and feet. Cleaning with heavy equipment, walking all over hard surfaces and generally being mobile for hours can make a person feel sore and tired at the end of the day.

There is a simple article of clothing that can make all the difference in the world for people that have physical jobs...compression socks! Housekeepers and janitors can definitely benefit from wearing these unique socks from Dr. Motion. If you have one of these jobs, it’s time to wear compression socks to ease some of the discomfort in your legs and feet.

The Best Compression Socks for Circulation

One of the reasons to wear compression socks is to boost circulation. This is because of the special fabric they are made from, sometimes with copper infused into the yarn, that is more snug around the ankle and gradually gets less tight as the sock goes up the leg. Think of it like a constant massage for your legs and feet that promotes better circulation.

When you have better circulation, you are going to experience less pain and swelling in the legs. After spending hours on your feet cleaning or fixing things, you’ll have fewer issues with soreness. You’ll feel more energized after a long hard day. It’s all thanks to wearing this special type of sock that makes all the difference in the world.

Ward off Varicose Veins

Wearing compression socks long-term can also help to ward off varicose veins or spider veins. Spider veins are those deep purple, broken veins that show up on the backs of thighs and calves, and could cause all kinds of pain.

The burning, stinging, swollen feeling around each cluster of spider veins can be difficult to deal with. Being able to prevent them with compression socks is a valuable part of wearing them each day. The Mayo Clinic states that wearing compression garments can help as part of self-care. The boost in circulation is going to make leg health a top priority.

Compression Socks for Standing all Day

The best compression socks for standing all day are ones with mild to moderate compression. That makes firm compression socks for men and women the perfect choice for housekeepers and janitors. Dr. Motion is happy to provide a variety of compression socks in styles that range from ankle to knee-high. Or do you prefer quarter socks?
