5 Signs Your Business Is Ready to Bring in a Professional Cleaning Service
What is your office saying about you and your business? You could be sending the wrong message and not even know it. According to a 2017 Healthy Hand Washing Survey, 89% of Americans believe that the bathroom’s condition indicates how a company values its employees. However, it is not just the bathroom that could be the problem.
Look out for these five signs that it is time to hire a professional cleaning service for your office.
1. Productivity Drops
A dirty and cluttered office can have a negative impact on your employee’s mental state. Employees do not actively decide to be less productive because the office is messy or dirty. Instead, this decline in motivation and focus happens on a subconscious level. In addition, a dirty office means an increase in germs, which increases the number of employees staying home sick. This also creates a stalling of productivity.
2. Employees Are Sick
Seasonal colds are something that all offices deal with. One employee picks up the flu from their school-aged children, quickly spreading it throughout the office. There isn’t much you can do about this. However, if your employees get sick year-round, there could be a bigger problem. Even if you ask employees to pitch in with cleaning, there are areas that your employees can miss. They are also not experts in the best practices for sanitation.
3. It Is No One’s Job
Assuming everyone will pitch in is not the best approach to office cleaning. Someone inevitably won’t pull their weight, leading to employee frustration and animosity. Additionally, when there is no dedicated, responsible person, there is no one to hold accountable. This leads to everyone assuming someone else will take care of cleaning duties. Hiring a professional cleaning service takes the guesswork out of who is responsible.
4. Office Expansion
It is easy to keep an office clean when only a small handful of people work there. Typically these small companies are close-knit and consist of individuals with professional and personal relationships. However, as the business and office expand, more people mean more mess. It also becomes harder to share the cleaning responsibility as more people mean more confusion as to who is responsible. Business growth is the perfect time to consider hiring professional cleaners.
5. Clients Visit the Office
If clients come to your office, you need to make a strong positive first impression. Clients will judge the business based on what they see. You do not need to have a big and impressive office. It just needs to be clean, clutter-free, bright, and smell fresh. A client may question your ability to perform for them if you can’t even keep the office clean.
