When it comes to running a business, there are a lot of things to keep track of, especially if you have an office space with multiple employees. Overhead can skyrocket if you don’t keep a close eye on expenses and your building itself comes with a lot of challenges: power, heat, water, taxes, security, etc... One thing you really don’t want to lose track of, however, is office cleanliness. Having a clean office can have many benefits, including increased productivity. Let’s look at some of the top reasons you should hire a commercial cleaning company for your office.
Clean Offices Help With Morale
Morale is a huge predictor of business success. If your morale tanks, so will your business. One of the best ways to keep morale high is by allowing your staff to focus on their own responsibilities within their areas of expertise rather than general office tasks like cleaning bathrooms and detailing kitchens. Yes, you can save a little bit on the bottom line when you assign office cleaning tasks to your employees, but if they consider it a burden and find that it takes away from their valuable office time (which they could be spending completing tasks for clients) then your bottom line is going to take an even bigger hit. Keep things simple. Have your employees concentrate on their tasks and leave the office cleaning to a professional company that is equipped to handle it.
Fewer Sick Days Among Staff
It’s pretty simple. Clean offices are healthy offices. If your workspace is littered with old and moldy food and overflowing trash cans then you’re going to see an increase in employee sick days taken which means lost revenue for you and increased stress for your employees. Hiring a commercial cleaning company can help reduce the spread of office wide sickness by cutting down on contact surface contamination. They are specially trained to clean these problem areas that the average person wouldn’t think to. That way you can rest assured that your workspace will be happier and healthier. Wouldn’t you prefer your staff take scheduled vacation days to recharge and come back happier as opposed to unplanned sick days where they come back tired and stressed? Easy choice!
Makes a Good Impression on Visitors
When your office is perpetually cleaned by professional cleaners, you never have to worry about clients or customers being put off by mess or waste. Having a squeaky clean office sends a clear message that you are a serious business and that you have everything in good working order. There is a lot of truth to the power of first impressions and you want to make sure that you are giving the best first impression possible when your clients enter your office space. Make sure it’s clean!
This may be a “boring” reason to hire a professional commercial cleaner, but it could be the most important one. If, in the extreme case something goes wrong, you can be off the hook for insurance liability terms, assuming that your existing coverage includes this. Outsourcing janitorial work to a third party company means that they are responsible for keeping and maintaining certain industry standards and best practices.
