As a business owner or office manager, you have a strict budget to consider as well as running the company efficiently. You have to make difficult decisions to prioritise which services you can outsource, and which you can do in-house to save money. You surely understand the importance of a clean and hygienic working environment, but you’ll ask yourself whether professional cleaners are essential to the outcome.
A commercial cleaning company can be your company’s best asset. While it might be an extra expense, the benefits a business can reap from professional cleaners ensures businesses get value for money. Here are some reasons we think a London professional cleaning company is a must for commercial properties.
Prevent health issues
A professional standard of cleaning is the best way to prevent staff illness and health issues. Some employees may have dust allergies, and without regular or thorough cleaning some staff can suffer in the workplace (which will affect their quality of work). It’s also important to keep a hygienic environment to prevent the spread of viruses and illnesses, which are easily passed on in a busy workplace. Not only is this bad news for the staff, it is bad news for employers when you have to deal with a high percentage of the workforce off sick. Prevention is the best measure, rather than having to deal with health problems when they occur.
Save money on equipment
You might think you can save some money by hiring one part time cleaner for your business, rather than a commercial cleaning services company. However, think of how much time you’ll take advertising the job post and choosing a suitable candidate – time is money. Then think about all of the professional cleaning equipment you’ll have to buy, as well as stocking up on cleaning products every month. You’ll probably find it’s less hassle and less expensive to get the expertise you need from a cleaning company, who can bring equipment if necessary.
Improve Staff Satisfaction
A happy workforce makes for happy customers. When workers feel comfortable and valued, they are happier to work for and represent your company. By hiring a professional cleaning company, you are giving a signal to your staff that you value their wellbeing and comfort. Moreover, employees work better in a cleaner environment and productivity is improved.
Improve Customer Satisfaction
You won’t only be impressing your staff with a spotless work environment, but also your visitors and clients. Making a good first impression is vital, so you need to make sure that all communal areas, especially toilets, are cleaned to a professional standard. If the workspace looks neglected, it’s doubtful that a potential customer will trust the company’s products or services.
So the question is….can you afford not to have professional cleaners?
