Cleaning up the office is probably one of the last things going through your mind when you arrive at work. Even if the thought has crossed your mind, chances are you already have a ton of work-related tasks and obligations that need to be finished asap. Unfortunately, the majority of business owners have one, maybe two cleaners which have to work day in and day out in order to keep the place clean, or inconvenience their employees with the task of tidying up behind them, instead of focusing on their work.
Cleanliness not only makes the work environment look better but also prevents the accumulation of allergens and harmful bacteria. More often than not, small business owners simply don’t want to hire a commercial cleaning service out of fear that they’ll place a heavy burden on the budget. However, one of the best ways for business owners to focus more on the company is to delegate the cleaning responsibilities over to a professional service. Here are just a couple of reasons why hiring a commercial cleaning business can actually benefit your business.
First impressions are everything and potential clients will form their opinions about your company based on what they actually see. Clients and potential customers are likely to question the integrity of your services and the quality of your products if the office space is anything less than presentable. Making assumptions based on what we see is perfectly normal, so try to keep your office space is fit to be seen at all times. You don’t want to miss out on a great business opportunity because your work environment is messy.
Preventing health related issues should the single most important reason for hiring a cleaning service. Office spaces are an ideal breeding ground not only for dirt and dust but also for numerous germs and bacteria. This poses a problem both for employees suffering from allergies and healthy workers who can easily get infected. Instead of having half of your workforce calling in sick and losing potential revenue, it might be a better idea to invest in a thorough and professional cleaning service. It’s a small price to pay for keeping business offices clean and your workers healthy.
Commercial cleaning companies provide a multitude of services that go far beyond making sure that everything is tidy. These services range from cleaning desktops, floors, walls, walkways and windows to removing and disposing of garbage. Other services offered by these companies include ceiling dusting, tile grouting, and window waxing. Some cleaning businesses also provide HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) maintenance. Carpet extraction might cost you extra, but sometimes it’s necessary in order to get both the carpets and the floors properly cleaned.
Professional cleaning services can also ensure that specific sanitation products such as hand paper towels and toilet paper never go missing. This is something which often goes overlooked, as business owners simply don’t have the time to think about every little thing as they already have their work-related responsibilities. A professional service can easily take on this responsibility as a part of a larger contract with your business company for a fraction of a cost more.
As a client, you can choose whether you’d like to pay on a daily, monthly or yearly basis, depending on the size of your budget and the availability of the funds. Likewise, the providers of commercial cleaning can carry out their services on a daily, weekly or a monthly basis, depending on the extent of their overall work, as well as the size of your business. The experts from SBHI Strata Cleaning recommend you go over each individual cost with the potential service you’re looking to hire, not only to compare the costs and figure out which suits you best but also to avoid any misunderstandings from happening in the future.
There are numerous cleaning consultancies currently available online which can help you find just the right service for your business. Whether your company requires maintenance work, post-construction or post-renovation cleaning or office transfer clean-ups, these consultancies offer help with finding the best cleaning service for the job. Besides business and office cleaning, most cleaning companies also offer home cleaning services, which saves a lot of time and effort you would normally put into finding an additional cleaning service just for your home.
