You might think that keeping your offices, or other buildings, clean is just another task that needs to be done. The truth is, the cleanliness of your facilities has a direct impact on the way that your employees, customers, and competition views you. Managing janitorial services is time-consuming and labor intensive, however, and many building owners and managers turn to a commercial janitorial cleaning company. As a result, they are able to focus on keeping their employees happy, satisfying their customers, and building their company.
A dusty office with dirty floors and carpeting is a depressing place. Employees that are stuck in these conditions are likely to have low morale. A professionally cleaned, dust-free environment, however, helps spur creativity and increases job satisfaction. It shows the people that work for you that you care about them and that they are valued. A cleaner office also reduces the number of allergens and bacteria in the space, making your office a healthier place to work in. Which equates to fewer sick days and decreased medical costs for employees and it’s probable you’ll see increased productivity as well.
Whether you have clients and customers coming and going all day, or on occasion, their impressions of your building matters. In the first few seconds of their first visit, they’ll form an opinion about your company based upon its appearance. Cobwebs hanging from the corners, dust covering furniture, or dirty floors are a sure sign of a lack of attention to detail. Contrarily, a professionally cleaned office gives the impression that details matter to you, and that you can be trusted to take care of everything. With a commercial janitorial service contract, your place of business will always reflect well on you.
Have you taken the time to tour your competition’s buildings, offices or other spaces? If not, you should. The reason is that it’s important for you to see how your competition is doing things, right down to the cleanliness of their spaces. If they’re meticulous about that aspect of their business, you should be too. On the other hand, if you notice that their space is showing signs of neglect in the housekeeping department, now’s your time to shine. Make it known that you use a professional janitorial service to keep your buildings clean, sanitized and healthy for all. In other words, out-clean to out-compete.
By outsourcing your needs to a reputable, reliable commercial cleaning company, you can improve employee morale, impress your customers and gain an edge over your competition.
