Keeping your office or commercial premises clean isn’t just a matter of best practices: it’s also been proven to increase productivity and reduce turnover. Working in a space that has stains, dust or debris cluttering up where your workers spend their days directly affects both your worker’s state of mind and their personal health.
Failing to maintain the cleanliness of your shared workspace and your place of a business causes many employees to feel you don’t value their health and safety, and this is directly reflected in their work. Moreover, research shows that the cleanliness of an office or workspace is among the top reasons employees look to move on to bigger and better things.
The problem faced by most businesses is that maintaining their own cleaning and janitorial staff can be costly, and they are caught between retaining employees who are helping drive their continued success and providing pay and benefits so the office stays clean and employees feel valued. Should you find yourself in this dilemma, hiring a professional cleaning service may be your most cost-effective option. How do you know if it’s time to find a professional cleaning service for your business? Let’s take a look at a few telltale signs:
A cluttered workspace with dirty carpets or floors and overflowing trash cans benefits no one. Employees trying to work in these conditions may find themselves either unable to focus or struggling with motivation to achieve the goals laid out for them. Moreover, dirty computer equipment like the mouse and keyboard are breeding grounds for germs. That means more sick days and playing catch up when a team member is out. Engaging a professional cleaning service can help resolve both issues without pushing employees harder to maintain tidier workspaces while on the clock.
Potential customers view your work environment and business premises as the forward face of your products and services. It’s their first impression, and if you don’t maintain it to the highest possible standard of cleanliness it may be their final impression, too. Hiring a team of pros to keep your business looking its best whenever potential clients drop by should be a top priority if it isn’t already.
The fastest way to burn out expensive computer and office equipment is to allow dust, dirt and grime collect inside the cooling vents and restrict airflow. Processors overheat, monitors burn out, and copiers jam because of dirt, dust and debris that has been allowed to accumulate. Want to avoid a lot of expensive replacements and repair bills? Get a high-quality cleaning crew regularly to vacuum and dust around your equipment.
If any of the above scenarios sound familiar to you, it’s time to find a professional cleaning team that can help you improve your work environment, put your best foot forward with clients and reduces your annual maintenance costs.
