Rings in the toilet, stained coffee cups in the kitchenette, crumbs on the carpeting, and spills that go ignored. Sounds like a lot of offices across America – after all, your employees were hired to do a specific job and as their job description did not include cleaning… these adults just don’t.
This is a problem in every industry and no matter how many different ways you try to solve the problem, it just doesn’t go away, does it? When you pack an office full of working people that share a space simply because they share an employer, things are likely to get kind of dirty. There are a bunch of reasons as to why you should hire professional cleaners for your office, but here are five of them.
In any situation, there are always the people who are willing to clean up after themselves… and by extension, they often clean up after others, too. While this seems great, it can reduce morale and cause friction between workmates. It means that everyone starts to rely on the same faces to take on the extra workload while everyone else continues making a mess and ignoring it. A third party cleaner means a clean space and no conflict with regards to the cleanliness of common areas.
Offices are cesspits when it comes to illness and allergies and without professional cleaners, a lot of the problems will be overlooked. With professionals, though, you can rest easy knowing that no matter where dust and grime are hiding – your cleaners will find it and eradicate it. Which means your employees won’t be spreading their germs or experiencing allergies.
Professional cleaners can clean your phones, desks, reception areas, kitchenettes, upholstery, bookcases, fixtures and fittings, as well as the bathrooms.
Whether you host clients or vendors in your offices or not, a workplace should be attractive and it should be professional. Your employees, suppliers, and guests should feel as though they are walking into a professional working environment. If you pay attention to the little things, it shows that you provide the same care and attention to every aspect of your business.
It may seem as though there’s never enough toilet paper, the soap is always empty and you can never dry your hands… annoying, right? Not only will professional cleaners keep your supplies fully stocked, they may also be able to improve your ordering. Whether it’s part of their package to provide the supplies or they just let you know when things are running low.
Not only will that dust problem go and allergy problems reduce, but so will the germs that are making your employees sick. A clean office means healthier, more productive employees. What does that mean? Fewer call-outs due to sickness, thus improved profits.
Whether you want a cleaner to come in daily or weekly, keeping your office clean is simply good business. Not convinced? Why not try it and see just how big a difference it can make to your world.
