Having a cleaning contractor for your office or commercial property is no doubt a smart investment. There is a wide range of advantages that comes with having a clean work environment. We’ve listed the top four below.
EMPLOYEE HAPPINESS & SAFETY
It goes without saying that the safety and moral of your employees should come first. Providing a clean and safe working environment for them should be first thing you think about on your cleaning agenda. Without regular cleaning, dirt and bacteria will build up. This is particularly the case given areas in the workplace such as the staff kitchen and of course shared toilets. Germs can be spread during cooking and eating, with utensils, cutlery, and crockery harbouring bacteria. With regular cleans and a cleaning contractor you can be assured you are providing a safe and clean environment for your employees to work without harm.
KNOWLEDGE & EXPERTISE
An added bonus of a cleaning contractor includes expertise. With professional commercial cleaners, you can expect an experienced clean including the products that are used and best practises.
Having your office cleaned should not be a hassle. By having the right commercial cleaner, you can be sure your office is kept clean – and to a high standard.
With a cleaning contractor, you can be assured that your office and workspace are kept clean and tidy. The practice of keeping clean is also a good way to lead by example. By having a regular office cleaner, your employees will also be more mindful of keeping their own desks tidy.
While cleaning their own areas is a good habit, it is less practical for employees to have to handle the shared spaces in the office. Extra cleaning duties can take up a lot of time, adding hours that could be better spent on their work schedules.
And last but not least, it actually works out more cost effective for you!
The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) estimates that in-house cleaning is, on average, 23% more expensive than contract cleaning services.
Cleaners need to be trained, motivated, and supervised. Outsourcing the management of your workplace cleaning can save you not only time but the cost involved as well. With contract cleaners, all staff are well trained in the correct office cleaning and hygiene techniques, giving you peace of mind.
Commercial cleaning companies will work with you and your budget to create a service that meets the needs of your facility. Any good commercial cleaning company will pass on ideas on cost-cutting methods, that can reduce costs even further.
