The number one reason you should hire a commercial cleaning service, like Denver Janitorial Services, is that you know your business and we know ours. Still not convinced? Here are four more reasons to hire a commercial cleaning service:
- Improves Your Bottom Line
Commercial cleaning services save you time and money, plain and simple. Most important, cleaning is what we do and we do it according to industry best practices. For example, Denver Janitorial Services follows the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Our staff work systematically and to specific plans for the project at hand, Office Cleaning. We have a 37-point inspection sheet. Carpet cleaning? We have a 12-Step Steam Cleaning and Extraction Process. When was the last time you or your employees did more than run a vacuum through your major traffic areas?
Speaking of vacuums, a commercial cleaning service will save you money on cleaning equipment, supplies and PPE, because you won’t need to purchase those any longer! We show up with state-of-the-art equipment that meets or exceeds industry standards. We also use environmentally friendly cleaning products. When was the last time your staff even changed the vacuum bag?
You will no longer be paying your employees to clean, you will be paying them to do the job for which you hired them. In addition, your liability for injuries incurred while cleaning or from being exposed to cleaning products evaporates when you hire a commercial cleaning service.
And the bottom line? When professionals clean your physical assets, your replacement costs go down because you won’t need to replace them as often.
- Improves Productivity and Morale
A clean work environment allows your employees to focus on what matters–their work! A tidy workplace increases productivity by reducing distractions and allowing your staff to be more creative and on task. It’s a fact that employees who work in a clean environment are less likely to take sick days. All of which means your company gets more work done.
Since your employees spend hours of their days at work, it becomes a second home and a clean home is one to which your employees will want to return. Studies have shown that employees who work in a clean environment have higher job satisfaction and are less likely to burnout. So, by creating a healthy, clean indoor space, morale improves and work productivity goes up.
Another way in which commercial cleaning services improve workplace productivity is the flexible scheduling they provide for their services. We can come clean when your employees are home recharging their batteries or whenever it works best for you! And, you can call us in for special projects. For instance, if you are hosting a conference or other large gathering, Denver Janitorial Services can be there to get your business back into tip-top shape and not put the burden of “clean-up” on your employees.
- Improves Hygiene
Commercial cleaning services provide more thorough cleanings than those done by in-house employees. Utilizing deep cleaning and disinfection techniques, and following industry protocols for dealing with hazardous materials, when needed, commercial cleaning services create a more hygienic environment. They can improve indoor air quality because they use better equipment—think HEPA filters on vacuums—and environmentally safe cleaning products.
By having a cleaner work environment, you will reduce hours lost to illness. And, that is nothing to sneeze at as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that productivity losses linked to absenteeism cost employers $225.8 billion annually in the United States!
Furthermore, research from the University of Arizona found that in confined spaces, like an office, germs from one sick employee can spread to 50% of the work surfaces in under four hours. A workspace that is regularly cleaned and sanitized by a commercial cleaning service can greatly reduce cross-contamination from employee illnesses.
- Improves Your Professional Image
First impressions matter, and your customers will make their first impressions of your business in under 7 seconds! If your commercial space looks dirty and disorganized, it is likely that your customers will have a negative first impression and may never return to your business.
Nine out of 10 consumers agree that they are more likely to have an overall negative opinion of an independent business if its public spaces are not clean. It doesn’t matter how good the service is or how wonderful the employees are, it’s how clean and fresh a hotel, restaurant, salon, or office is that matters most for 92 percent of consumers when deciding if they will become a repeat customer.
If your commercial space is untidy, because you and your employees do not have the time, energy or protocols to clean it, it can suggest that your company lacks the professionalism, organization and effort to deliver quality products or services to your customers. Conversely, a clean environment promotes the image of quality and your ability to deliver superior products and services.
Something as simple as clean windows, walls, ceilings, and floors promotes a sense of well-being for your customers. Instead of wondering whose hair is in the dust bunny at their feet, they can concentrate on purchasing products or engaging with the service you are providing to them.
Indirectly, employees who work in a dingy work environment are less likely to promote their workplace—your business, than those who work in a clean, and healthy environment.
So there you have it, four reasons you should hire a commercial cleaning service so you can get back to doing what you do best, running your business.
