One of the things we pride ourselves on is the value we provide to businesses. We try to help businesses understand that cleaning services aren’t just an expense. They’re an investment in your business, just like a new computer or new employee would be.
While many people don’t think of cleaning services this way, our services can actually provide a powerful return on investment over time. Let’s look at just a few of the ways investing in cleaning services can help your business:
Increased Worker Productivity
A clean office creates more productive workers in a numbers of ways. The most direct way is that a cleaner, tidier workplace is easier to navigate. Getting from point A to point B is a whole lot faster and safer if there isn’t a huge mess in the way.
The second benefit is a reduction in sick days. Sick days cost businesses billions each year, and a clean workplace can drastically curb the spread of illness and bacteria.
By minimizing the number of days that workers are absent — and thus not contributing — a business can get more out of its workforce and ultimately increase its profitability.
Slower Depreciation Of Equipment
Here’s another thing people often don’t think about: The manner in which you store and care for your equipment has a notable impact on how long it lasts.
If your equipment sits in a dirty office to gather dust and grime, you’re cutting down on the lifespan of that office equipment.
When that equipment gets regularly cleaned by professionals, you’re extending its lifespan. The specifics vary for the type of equipment and how often it’s used, but just take a moment to walk through a scenario:
- Add up the amount of money your business spends annually on office equipment repairs. What if you could reduce those costs by 10 percent?
- What if your equipment lasted 15 percent longer before needing to be replaced?
- Think about the added profitability — all because you kept it clean!
Better Brand Perception
The condition of your office says something about your organization. If an outsider comes to your office and sees things in disrepair, it affects that person’s perception of you.
The same goes for the people on the inside: your employees. If their office is in great shape, don’t you think they’ll feel better about the company they work for? How do you think that would translate into their efforts?
While perhaps difficult to quantify with numbers, the perception of your business matters a great deal both internally and externally. The condition of your workplace goes a long way to create an impression of your business. Make sure people form a positive one.
