Keeping your office spaces clean is an important task. It doesn’t just result in a more pleasant, hygienic, and professional place to work — it also improves productivity and keeps us happier.
It can be tempting to simply delegate cleaning duties to team members, perhaps via a rota system. Or you might want to hire your own full-time cleaner. These methods can certainly work, but there is a better way.
Working with a team of professional cleaners can be the ideal way to keep your office spaces optimally clean and safe. In this article, we’ll break down some of the main reasons why you might want to consider this approach.
It’s Great Value for Time and Money
Working with a team of cleaners takes a huge load off your own team. It frees members of staff from the need to tidy the office, disinfect surfaces, vacuum the carpets, and much more. Instead of taking time out of their day and away from their desks to clean, your team can focus on their own jobs, maximising company resources and time.
Working with a team can also be more cost-effective than paying for your own full-time cleaning staff. It ensures you only pay for the time spent cleaning, and use your budget more productively.
Professionals Know Exactly What to Do
The right team of cleaning service providers will have experience, access to all the right materials, and the knowledge to use them effectively. They’re a powerful human resource who — in many cases — will have cleaned countless offices in the past. They know exactly what they’re doing, and they know how to deliver the best results.
On top of that, professionals are reliable. They can be counted on to show up and do a good job, giving everyone in your office peace of mind. Good professionals will also commit to non-disclosure — making a legal promise not to share any potentially confidential information they encounter during their job.
You’ll Get a Clean Office — with All the Associated Benefits
A clean office has all kinds of upsides, including many you may have never even considered (link to post about benefits). For example:
- Tidy offices are more profitable — cluttered workspaces can cost businesses several millions of dollars a year
- You’ll have fewer sick days, as employees are less likely to be exposed to germs
- You’ll be less likely to lose important documents and objects
Safe and Green Cleaning
A professional cleaning service provider will use materials and methods that are proven to be safe and environmentally friendly. In the past, certain cleaning materials have turned out to be harmful to the health of people around them — not to mention the damage they can cause to the environment.
A team of professionals won’t make this mistake. They’ll ensure that the cleaning is both safe and eco-friendly. It’s worth discussing this with them and making sure they’re aware if eco-friendliness is a matter of high priority for your company.
It Looks Professional
Unsurprisingly, professional cleaning services tend to lead to a professional-looking result. You’ll end up with a cleaner workspace with a much more thorough job done. Any visitors and customers will get a better first impression and your business will gain credibility.
The end result will almost certainly appear better than if you left it to your employees or just one or two in-house cleaners. For many companies, the office is the face of the business — it’s important to keep it looking dazzling.
Save Storage Space
If you have to store all your cleaning equipment on-site, it can be a big burden on space. This is especially true if you actually want to use advanced cleaning tools instead of just the basics.
A cleaning team will bring their own equipment/materials and take it with them when they leave. Meanwhile, your team can use the space for something more useful.
You'll Build a Valuable Relationship
With the right cleaning provider, you won’t just be hiring a faceless cleaning machine. You’ll be able to build an ongoing relationship where they get to know your needs and specific circumstances, allowing them to solve your specific cleaning-related problems and offer tailored solutions.
