As a business owner, you naturally want to keep costs as manageable as possible. However, being frugal can actually backfire if you choose to forgo professional office cleaning in an attempt to save money.
While you or your staff could undertake cleaning duties on your own, you may not have the time or equipment necessary to make your office a sparkling, sanitary environment. If so, you’ll be missing out on the following benefits offered by a clean and orderly workplace.
When you work long hours, you start to feel like your workplace is your home away from. And just like at home, a messy, unclean environment increases stress and displeasure. It also makes it more difficult for workers to put their all into their jobs since they’ll need to devote more time to tidying up. Conversely, arriving at a neat and clean office each morning invigorates employees and allows them to jump into their job duties right away.
With cold and flu season rapidly approaching, many business owners are rightly concerned about the toll seasonal sickness can take on their workforce. While you can’t always prevent your employees from getting sick, you can lower the risk of your office being contaminated with germs and bacteria. For example, workplace keyboards, mice, and telephones are often hotbeds for germs, which can travel around an office like wildfire. Sanitizing these areas, as well as common areas like breakrooms and bathrooms, on a daily basis protects your workers, as well as your bottom line.
When people visit your office, you want to make the best impression possible. Along with high-tech equipment and an engaged workforce, you also want the place to appear as neat and tidy as possible. Dirty floors, unkempt bathrooms, and stained windows makes your place of work look unprofessional and sloppy, which are two words no good business wants to be associated with.
If you own your work building, of course you want your investment to look its best for as long as possible. Neglecting regular cleaning can lead to all sorts of damage, which will eventually call for replacement floors and other fixtures. Even if you rent the office you work out of, proper cleaning and maintenance is still crucial. Not only will preventable damage raise the ire of your landlord, it can also slow the pace of work if repair crews need to come and address some issue during the day.
