How your Business can Save on Office Cleaning
Keeping up with cleaning can be difficult for your business because of the cost associated with it, but there are many steps you and your employees can take to help your business reduce its cleaning costs. Cleaning is essential to owning and operating a successful business. No matter what industry you are in maintaining a clean and healthy environment is important to not only attain new customers, but to make your employees more productive. Here are several cleaning tips to help your office stay clean and reduce costs along the way.
1. Research: Research is very important especially when you are the decision maker for your company. You should be aware of what cleaning services that you need and how often. We often find ourselves educating clients about what cleaning services they need. While we enjoy doing this, the majority of the time we end up saving them money because they were asking for more expensive cleaning services.
2. Education: Educate your employees and make sure they are doing their part in keeping your office clean. We see all the time employees disregarding recycling bins as garbage cans and not wiping their feet on the entrance mat when it is rainy or snowing outside. It is the little things we do that make a big difference and cost us money in the long run.
3. Cleaning Contracts: A great way to save money on a professional office cleaning service is to see if they have contract cleaning programs available. Scheduling regular basis cleaning is a more cost efficient way to make sure your office is being properly cleaned and maintained. For example, if you get your floors washed, swept and buffed on a regular basis than you won’t need your floors stripped and sealed as frequently saving you money on more expensive cleaning services. By hiring a cleaning company and scheduling regular basis cleaning you can save money in the long run.
4. Never Stop Cleaning: The worst thing your business can do to save money is to drastically reduce your cleaning or stop it all together. Not only will the image of your business suffer, but before you know it you could be left with a very costly mess.
