Most of us spend at least 40 hours a week at the office or workplace, making it like a second home to us. How do you feel when you enter your home and it’s untidy or in need of a good deep cleaning? If you’re like most, you’ll instantly feel anxious, embarrassed, frustrated or a combination of everything. There are a few major benefits of having a professional cleaning service handle the cleaning needs of your business and they all impact your productivity.
1. Decreased absenteeism
Obviously, the bathroom anywhere is one of the dirtiest places, however, a dirty washroom is one of the main reasons your employees will get sick. They are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and failing to clean them on a regular basis can cause the germs they house to spread like wildfire through your office. Having healthy employees means you’ll have happier and more productive employees too.
2. Increased motivation
Most employees won’t leave or turn down a job because of an untidy workspace, but you don’t want them to feel uncomfortable at work either. Ensuring the comfort and safety of your employees should always be at the top of your priority list, and that includes providing a clean workspace, and amenities. If your employees constantly have to deal with unkempt spaces, dirty bathrooms, or a sink full of dishes in the break room it will discourage them from doing their best, even if they may not realize it. Treat your employees well, and they will want to stay.
3. Decreased stress levels
We’ve all needed to use a public restroom, to enter and find out it is completely disgusting. Sometimes you have no choice, but your employees should never feel that way at work.
4. Longevity of your office assets
Investing in your workspace, and all of your equipment can be a large monthly cost to most businesses. Taking care of your assets is crucial to getting the most out of your equipment and ensuring it lasts as long as possible. Assets can include, the building itself if you’re the property owner, right down to your computers, and furniture. Keeping a properly cleaned and maintained office is the perfect way to save money in the long run.
The minute a customer walks through the door they are forming their first impression of your business. Do you want to be perceived as the disorganized office; the one who may lose their important information? Or would you rather make a lasting impression because of your clean and tidy space with employees who are truly happy and comfortable in their work environment?
A cleaning service is a monthly investment (and write off!) for your business, but one that is well worth it in both the short and long term.
