Office cleaning is something that many business owners don't necessarily think much about when going over important overhead expenses for the business. For some, it's a matter of having the employees chip in and helping to clean. For others, it's more so about hiring the cheapest company to clean the office in daily or weekly intervals. As a business owner, it's important that you understand how often you should really be cleaning to keep your employees and customers happy, as well as why you should hire professionals who know what they're doing.
How often should you clean your commercial office?
Not every office will have the budget to hire a professional company to clean their entire office every day. While this is ideal, particularly in instances where you have a lot of employees or customers going in and out of your office, sometimes there are areas that you may be able to clean once a week, as long as they are kept presentable throughout the hours of operation. These areas include your front entryway or waiting room and employee offices. Invest in air fresheners and have the trashcans emptied daily, but other than that, you may be able to escape a full cleaning until the end of the week in these areas.
A professional cleaning contractor should clean bathrooms and break rooms daily. These are both areas where sanitation is vital because there are significantly more harmful germs that can result in employees and customers getting sick. Bathrooms in particular carry the most bacteria.
Always keep in mind that the more often you have your office cleaned, the happier your employees and customers are likely to be. Also, keeping a clean office will prevent dust and other particles from building up in computers, devices, air conditioning, and other important office equipment that can fail if too much dust builds up.
How can hiring a professional help you?
Some smaller offices choose to ask their employees to take part in the cleaning of the office throughout the week, which does save money for the business, but unfortunately brings down office morale and results in offices being dirtier than business owners realize. Hiring a professional not only takes the burden off employees, but most importantly, you are hiring an experienced company that's sole specialty is in the cleaning of office buildings. A professional will have the proper tools and cleaning supplies to clean all areas in your office. There will be no relying on your employees to do a quick wipe down of tables or run of the vacuum across the carpeted floors. A professionally cleaned environment gives employees the comfort of working in your office and customers the willingness to want to come in for your services.
