If you run an office, regardless of the number of employees, there's a good chance you've run into some cleanliness concerns already. Perhaps you've even taken to handling some of the day-to-day cleaning tasks yourself, such as cleaning bathrooms or tidying up the break room.
While there's no denying the importance of a clean office, the fact remains that you have other things to worry about. Your time could be better spent growing your business or dealing directly with your employees and/or clients—not scrubbing food debris out of the break room microwave.
This is where hiring a professional cleaning service may make sense for your office. A regular office cleaning service can help keep your office clean and tidy while also saving you money in the long run.
Benefits of Keeping a Clean Office
Understandably, it can be difficult to initially justify the cost of hiring a cleaning service at your office. After all, if the cleaning tasks can be done by you or by other employees, why should you spend the money? The answer is simple: because there are countless benefits of keeping a clean office without asking your workers to lift a finger. And many of these reasons can actually lead to more revenue for your business, offsetting the cost of hiring a cleaner over time.
Keep People Safe
Spills are a common workplace hazard that can lead to slip-and-fall accidents and other injuries. By having a professional office cleaning service come in and address spills, you can improve overall safety in your workplace and reduce the risk of injury. And of course, this can save you money when it comes to your insurance costs and employees needing to take time off work due to injuries.
Cut Down on Sick Time
Sick time is another major issue for many workplaces, especially in offices where employees are often working together in closer quarters (such as cubicles). In these environments, it's easier for bacteria and illnesses to spread. By having a cleaning service come in on a regular basis to disinfect surfaces, you can cut down on the risk of employees spreading sickness in the workplace. This, in turn, can help your company's productivity while also cutting down on employee sick time.
In an office setting, bacteria spreads not only on desks, countertops, and tables, but on surfaces such as shared telephones, headphones, keyboards, and the like. A professional cleaner will be aware of these common breeding grounds for bacteria and will know to address them at the time of service.
Boost Employee Morale
When employees walk into a clean and tidy office, they can see first-hand that their employer cares enough about them to maintain a positive work environment. And when employees feel valued at their workplace, they are more likely to stick around and to perform better at their jobs. When you look at it this way, spending your money on a cleaning service can pay off in increased employee productivity and morale.
Make a Good First Impression
In addition to making sure your employees know you care about the cleanliness of their work environment, you'll want to make sure you're leaving a positive first impression for visitors as well. Perhaps you have clients who occasionally stop by the office for meetings, or other "outsiders" that you want to impress. Regardless, you won't be able to leave a good first impression by presenting a disorganized and unclean office.
By having a cleaning service come in on a regular basis, you can make sure you're putting your company's best foot forward no matter who may stop by.
