Reasons for Outsourcing
Facility Managers are busy people, and more often than not, hiring or firing your Commercial Cleaning service can seem like an expensive and time consuming task that adds more to your already toppling pile of responsibilities. After all, with all the other work you need to do to manage your facility, making sure that you have a solid janitorial services provider is probably one priority among many. Having the right commercial cleaning service in your building can impact a great deal of things, especially these days with covid-19 adding extra pressures, risks and liabilities to an already challenging endeavor. Outsourcing your facility maintenance to an affordable, professional, prepared commercial cleaning service can help you navigate the current crisis and keep your facility clean and safer for your employees.
The Upsides of Outsourcing Commercial Cleaning & Janitorial Services
When you run a business, customer perception is reality. As such, creating a welcoming, clean atmosphere for your potential customers to enter is critical to improving your bottom line and creating a sense of expertise and professionalism. With current fears and concerns around the global pandemic, perceptions of safety and cleanliness are even more critical.
Reduce Staff Absenteeism
How well a building is cleaned can directly impact staff absenteeism and employee turnover. Turnover can cost a company big, statistics cite that it takes an average of 50 days and upwards of $20,000 to replace a single employee in a medium sized business. Staff turnover is one of the largest contributors to lost revenue in almost any business because of how expensive and time consuming it is to recruit and train new employees. That being said, the best way to combat turnover is by creating a clean, welcoming environment for your employees to work in. Don’t let illness and a loss of productivity cut into your bottom line or your employees well being, partner with a commercial cleaning service that takes the health and safety of your facility seriously.
Improving Your Bottom Line
It’s a simple concept, employees that feel valued and cared for are more productive. No one wants to give it there 100% in a dirty, poorly serviced building. After all, if you don’t seem to care, why should they? Don’t let poor cleaning practices negatively impact employee performance and productivity. Set your teams up for success by partnering with an experienced, professional commercial cleaning company.
Let Professionals Be Professionals
You provide a professional service and because you're reading this, odds are it isn’t commercial cleaning.

Let industry cleaning professionals do their job and you attend to yours. Don’t stretch yourself too thin in an attempt to save money when it is sure to cost you in the long run. Partnering with an effective commercial cleaning company is going to offer you a level of quality and service you simply can’t get any other way.
