Are commercial cleaning services right for my facility/workplace? +
Of course! Office managers usually don’t notice how quickly cleanliness can go downhill until the office has reached the need for critical attention. It’s better to be proactive than reactive! Deciding to hire a commercial cleaning service is a good strategic move for your business. Oftentimes, office managers or employees with overwhelming workloads and tight budgets find that outsourcing services, like maintenance or janitorial services that are out of the scope of your company’s expertise, is a workable, cost-effective solution to the headaches caused by leaning on employees or in-house teams. Here are a few benefits to consider:
1. Save Money
With commercial cleaning expertise, cleaners can do better work in less time, which is cost-effective for your company. Cleaning companies also are able to purchase products from vendors in bulk at reduced rates and pass along the savings to you. And you don’t have to keep up with inventory, uniforms, equipment, or other related expenses.
2. Transfer Liability
Janitorial work carries specific risks. Commercial cleaning companies handle their own liability and insurance costs.
3. Flexibility in Choosing Your Schedule
Commercial cleaners offer flexible hours. Perhaps cleaning during office hours isn’t the right fit for your business. Commercial cleaners can work early mornings, evenings, or weekends. You select the time that is most convenient for your office and adjust frequency based on need.
4. Boost Employee Morale
A clean space creates a professional atmosphere. The average working adult spends more time awake at work than at home. A clean office environment can improve productivity by boosting morale and by reducing illness and stress. Healthy employees take more pride in their work and fewer sick days.
5. Experience Fewer Headaches
With a commercial cleaning company handling the responsibilities of cleaning standards, staffing, schedules, background checks, OSHA requirements, and insurance costs, office managers can focus on responsibilities more integral to their business.
