First impressions matter the most. Business people know too well why it is essential to make an excellent first impression. Whenever you go to an important meeting, you make sure that your iron your shirt properly, your suit is neat, and your dress shoes match your belt.
The same implies to offices. The cleanliness or filthiness of an office says a lot about the business. A clean office is not just correctly organized, but one where the windows are clean blinds dusted, carpets void of stains, and restrooms are sanitized. Business owners are very busy and have multiple obligations and responsibilities behind the scene to run their businesses. They are concerned about raising productivity, sales, and cutting costs. We all understand that clean and organized spaces promote productivity because people can put all of their focus into work. One fundamental truth about running any business is that if you are better at something than most people, then you should start a business.
That is what we believe is right for our business as well. Professional cleaning companies (especially C4 Maintenance) are fantastic at what they do. Business owners should delegate cleaning duties to professional, well-established cleaning companies. There are many benefits of doing that; I will list a few to buttress this point:
Well-established companies have trained and skilled staff. They developed skills to do tasks such as cleaning, dusting, sanitizing, and carpet cleaning with high efficiency and speed. These experts do cleaning functions in a particular order. Yes, there is an order of doing things in the cleaning business as well. They start cleaning from top to bottom, and from right to left. Doing tasks in this order ensures that every corner and every shelf in the office is adequately cleaned without missing out anything.
Some types of stains, dirt, and dust require specific cleaning solutions, and so cleaning everything with all-purpose cleaners won’t do the job. Professional cleaners always inspect offices before taking on a task. They do their inspection to estimate what kinds of supplies they should bring with them to the job. Moreover, some agencies prefer natural cleaning solutions, and professional cleaners always know what natural solutions they should prepare beforehand (of course, naturalness comes with an extra cost).
When business owners try to save a buck by delegating cleaning tasks to their employees, there might be several possible drawbacks. First, morale can sink. Office workers do not want to empty the trash, clean the restroom, and dust windows. Secondly, because your workers are not trained to do cleaning professionally; it might take them much longer to clean the office and more importantly, it might look clean and organized on the surface, but we all know there is a difference between “clean on the surface” and really clean.
Without proper dusting, your office can constitute a respiratory hazard. Dusty rooms can contribute to the development of asthma in you and your employees.
Did you know that the computer keyboard has more germs and bacteria than a toilet seat? Computer keyboard needs to be sprayed with a special sanitizer at least once a week and left overnight to kill off all the germs.
Since we already mentioned toilets in the previous point, we should discuss it a bit more. Restrooms are known to be high traffic areas within any office space. Therefore, they need to be thoroughly cleaned daily. In the open toilets, every time somebody flushes the water, all germs and bacteria move up in the air particles and stick to the surrounding area. Toilets need to be cleaned and sanitized daily.
Lastly, clean offices give a positive image of your business to everybody to your customers, workers and yourself. People in clean and sanitized offices are less likely to get tired faster and get sick, so this is a very nice bonus, right? Your productivity increases and people take fewer sick days.
Business owners who found a good and reliable cleaning company never regret their invested money because they know why it is essential to keep their offices clean, organized, and sanitized. We hope this article helps our readers.
