Often business owners shy away from hiring a professional cleaning service because they believe they can do the cleaning themselves. However, investing in a cleaning company has been proven to have many benefits, including:
Retaining and Attracting Employees
With the “Great Resignation” and high demand for remote work still underway, many employees are changing their mindset when it comes to their careers. Businesses across the country are struggling to keep their staff, let alone hire more. Having a clean office is one way to market your business and help incentivize employees to stay. When a prospective employee comes in for an interview, they analyze the office space. Having a clean and organized business sets your company apart from the rest. And employees will appreciate and notice the extra care you are putting in, which will make them more productive. Our work environment has a significant impact on our mental health. If your office space is dirty or messy, your employee can become overly stressed, tired, and unmotivated.
Employees Take Less Sick Days Because of Better Air Quality
Sharing a small space with a lot of people spreads germs and bacteria, which causes illness. A professional cleaning service will help fight off germs during cold and flu season and prevent your employees from getting sick frequently. This can lead to extra revenue over time as well. A commercial cleaning company can improve the air quality of your office or business over time by eliminating excessive dust and allergens as well.
Impress Clients and Customers
Just like prospective employees, your clients and customers are going to make a first impression based on the way your business looks. Having a professional, clean environment will show customers that you care, and it will make them feel more comfortable. If they notice that your place of business seems unkept, they may not come back again, or worse, they could leave a bad review which will have lasting negative effects on your establishment.
Avoid Liabilities and Shut Downs
Commercial cleaning companies keep up with the latest OSHA compliances and state health standards so that your business does not have to worry. They also sanitize and clean better than your average person, which can reduce the threat of a virus outbreak among your staff. Having to shut down your business because of a COVID outbreak, an OSHA violation, or a health inspection will cost your business money, and you could even develop a poor reputation amongst your local community.
Reduce your Environmental Impact
Working with a cleaning company that uses green cleaning products has tremendous benefits. For instance, your professional image will heighten because you are showing that you not only care about the environment but you care about the health and safety of your employees and customers as well. Green cleaning improves the morale of employees, reduces operation and maintenance costs, reduces waste, air and water pollution, and even increases your building value. You also won’t have to worry about breathing in or touching toxic chemicals.
A commercial cleaning company allows your business to have a flexible cleaning schedule that meets the needs of your business and will transform your business into a professional, productive environment.
