If you’ve got a full-time janitorial staff, it may seem redundant to consider additional cleaning services for your business. However, while a janitorial staff can help with simple day-to-day maintenance, there are several reasons why you should consider commercial cleaning services.
Extend the life of your floors
Seasons continually change and with those changes comes pollen, slush, dirt, and mud onto your floors by several of your employees and customers. High-traffic areas are often the most seen, which are prone to more wear and tear. Without proper cleaning, these areas could create a permanent bad first impression for your customers and employees. We recommend deep cleaning your floors every 12 to 18 months, though your floors may need more frequent cleaning services depending on your traffic. Most carpets are expected to last anywhere between 5 and 15 years. That’s, of course, relying on good maintenance, meaning steam cleaning. If you get a deep steam cleaning once every 12 to 18 months, you can lengthen the life of your carpet. Many floors have warranties that require such a cleaning, so please be sure to check your own warranty to see if that is a requirement to keep the warranty. Ultimately, investing in your floors by keeping them clean can save money by avoiding costly repairs.
Improve Employee Morale
Employees want to work in an environment that feels new, fresh, and exciting. Proper maintenance of the workplace and the culture aids that and a significant first step to improving morale is a clean environment. One of the simplest ways of inspiring your employees and promoting a positive work environment is by making sure shared areas are clean, surfaces are wiped clean of dust, and the area smells pleasant. If you find that employees are becoming sluggish and unproductive, try scheduling a commercial cleaning of the workspace. While bonuses and good benefits are good ways to motivate the team, you might be surprised to see that your employees are more inspired and even empowered to perform better on the job in a cleaner environment.
Improve Community Health
Your place of work is its own community and ecosystem. When one person becomes sick, it can travel across the office and wreak havoc on your production. Over the course of a year, sickness comes and goes from the workplace, but it never really leaves your building. Believe it or not, germs and other things can become trapped in your carpet or lurk in the break room, and without deep cleaning, they can contribute to a vicious cycle of bad health in the workplace. Countertops and other surfaces are good ways for germs to travel from person to person. And with flu season in full swing in many areas, you can combat this yearly menace with a deep clean to ensure that your workforce makes it healthy through the end of the year.
