If you own a commercial building or a business, a time may come when you start thinking about hiring a commercial cleaning company.
The idea may ping-pong around in your head: Yes, we need one. Well, maybe not, and so on.
If you have been considering hiring a commercial cleaning company, but you're just not sure if you really need one, you may want to take a few things into consideration.
Is it time to hire a commercial cleaning company?
You could choose to clean your building yourself. (But let's be honest, your to-do list is already long and cleaning isn't your strong suit.)
Or you could choose to have a team of professionals do the job for you. (Did you feel that? Your shoulders just got a whole lot lighter.)
Here are the telltale signs that it's time to hire a commercial cleaning company.
1. Your staff has better things to do.
Have you delegated staff members to take on cleaning duties across the building? If these staff members are complaining that the cleaning is taking away from their work, or the job is not getting completed correctly, it's time to take the responsibility off of their shoulders and call in the big guns.
2. You have strict standards for sanitization.
If you work in a certain area that has to meet sanitization standards when it comes to areas like bathrooms and kitchens, then a commercial cleaning company is the best way to go so you can be certain you're meeting health codes.
3. You want to keep the germs at bay in public areas.
If you have public areas within your commercial building, it's likely these areas get messy.
They may also be attracting bacteria and other germs that can wreak havoc on the health of your employees and anyone else who comes into the building.
Having a regular commercial cleaning service take care of these areas for you gives you peace of mind that they are completely cleaned and sanitized.
4. You want to make a good first impression.
When people enter your building, what do you want them to see? Dirty floors and stained upholstery?
Of course not. You want them to see cleanliness and that your business is well-maintained so they want to keep coming back.
First impressions are important for every area of business – and life.
5. You want to reduce illness.
Have you noticed regular illness making its way through the building? This could be because your building is not getting cleaned effectively.
Hiring a commercial cleaning company who has experience with offices and business spaces can help you reduce illness throughout the building.
