You do your job and you do it very well. You look around and you have a competent staff, doing their jobs to best of their ability. What often gets left undone, however, is keeping the office clean. That’s why you hire someone to do it for you.
But facility management has more to it than just dusting and vacuuming. There are more reasons than not to hire a professional to keep your environment clean. Here are five big reasons you should hire a commercial cleaning company:
1) Safer Work Environment
Keeping your workplace clean means keeping your workplace safe. Not only are offices a breeding ground for germs and bacteria, but an untidy workspace in a manufacturing facility can also lead to accidents and possibly injury. When the average worker in the U.S costs businesses $230/year due to workplace absenteeism caused by personal illness, hiring cleaning services pays for itself.
2) Less Stress
Your employees are your top priority, but we all know the worst part about cleaning is the fact that it’s, well, cleaning. Most commercial cleaning companies will work around your company work schedule for convenience. Rather than spending time doing something that stresses you out, leave the cleaning up to the pros and spend more time working on what matters most to you.
3) More Productive Workers
There have been numerous studies on workplace productivity and workplace cleanliness, and they all point towards one thing: a cleaner workplace leads to happier, more productive workers. In a survey by OfficeMax of more than 1,000 U.S. adults, 90% admit that unorganized clutter has a negative impact on their life, with 77% claiming that their productivity is affected the most. Additionally, in a study conducted at Brigham Young University, 88% of respondents report that visible buildup of dirt and dust can actually hinder their ability to concentrate, be productive, and learn.
4) More Professional Workplace
Did you know that 35% of workers feel ashamed or embarrassed when other people see their workspace? That’s because Americans often associate cleanliness with professionalism. If you don’t look like an organized professional, you won’t be perceived as one, and there’s nothing more embarrassing than having your customers and clients view your business as unprofessional. Whether it means power washing your parking lot and building, washing your windows, or making sure your work or retail spaces are 100% clean, commercial cleaners can certainly help your brand build a reputation around professionalism.
5) Higher Quality Clean
If you go to a dentist to professionally clean your teeth, why wouldn’t you hire a professional to clean your facility? In the commercial cleaning industry, cleaning professionals are equipped with all the necessary tools to get the job done, as well as a better understanding of how things need to be done. They use specially formulated cleaning solutions, micofiber mop pads and dusting tools, and industrial-strength commercial vacuums.
So, the next time you see an inch of dust on your desk or scum on your windows, think of a professional and get the job done right.
