Outsourcing cleaning duties to a team of seasoned professionals is often a much better option than having employees pitch in or hiring an in-house team. Here are some of the top signs that it’s time for your office to enlist the help of a commercial cleaning services provider.
1. YOUR OFFICE IS IN OBVIOUS DISARRAY.
Is your office a visible mess? Perhaps you’ve noticed a layer of dust on top of filing cabinets or a stain on one of your waiting room chairs. Have you wondered if that piece of trash next to the waste basket is the same piece you noticed yesterday, or how can you get your windows to shine? Visible grime not only impacts employee morale and productivity, but it can also turn off prospective partners, make clients question your business’ attention to detail, and jeopardize the health of everyone on the team. With a solution as simple as daily cleaning, there is no excuse for losing business to a dirty office.
2. YOUR EMPLOYEES ARE EXCEPTIONALLY BUSY.
Sharing cleaning duties may be included as “part of the daily routine” to avoid hiring someone to perform janitorial cleaning services. But if you’re not providing commercial cleaning training, efficient tools, and effective disinfectants, your employees are more likely to spread germs around than help eliminate them. And that’s assuming staff members even bother performing cleaning duties at all. Just consider the current state of your office breakroom or kitchen. Employee morale decreases when busy, skilled workers are asked to spend time cleaning up after their coworkers, rather than completing the tasks relevant to their job titles. Commercial cleaning services help bridge the gap between expectation and output.
3. YOUR EMPLOYEES ARE CALLING IN SICK.
If business owners need just one reason to hire a commercial cleaning service, it’s this one. Daily commercial cleaning by an experienced service provider is the best way to protect the health and safety of your employees and other visitors to your office. When people start calling in sick, there is a good chance they contracted their illness at work. Even if they didn’t, there’s also a good chance they already passed the illness on to a co-worker. From COVID-19 and the Delta variant to cold and flu season, commercial cleaning has never been more vital.
4. YOUR EMPLOYEES THINK YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT THEIR WELL-BEING.
From dirty dishes in the office sink and moldy food in the common refrigerator, to clogged toilets and dusty computer screens, all employees have their own set of pet peeves when it comes to office hygiene. When areas of the office aren’t kept clean, employees may believe you don’t value their health and safety. A recent Harris Poll commissioned by the Cintas Corporation revealed that 90 percent of Americans think employers who clean their workplace restrooms care more about their employees than employers who do not. Outsourcing professional janitorial cleaning services can be part of a comprehensive solution to combat employee turnover for this reason.
