Five Commercial Cleaning Services Benefits
How many hours do you spend in your office each week? If you're like most business owners or high level managers it's a lot. Let’s face it: your office is practically your second home. And not only is it YOUR second home, it’s also the second home to all of your co-workers and employees! With so many people spending so many hours there, there’s no question that you need to take good care of it. Unfortunately, for many businesses, this isn’t always the case.
Though your own staff might do a decent job at keeping your workplace habitable, it doesn’t mean they’re doing a great job of keeping your workplace clean. Simply put, cleanliness can be a rare priority for businesses, so most just do the bare minimum to keep up with appearances (i.e. vacuum every now and then, keep kitchen and bathroom areas tidy, etc.). And while this might save time for more “important” tasks, a dirty workplace can actually inhibit your workers from completing these tasks.
In order to help you maximize your business’ efficiency, safety, and appearance, we’ll explain the top 5 benefits of hiring a commercial cleaning service:
1) Safer Work Environment
Keeping your workplace clean means keeping your workplace safe. Not only are offices a giant petri dish for germs and bacteria, but an untidy workplace can also lead to accidents and possibly injury. Though you might be sanitizing surfaces areas every now and then or “keeping an eye on things” in the warehouse, no one does a better job than the trained commercial cleaning professionals. The average worker in the U.S costs businesses $230/year due to workplace absenteeism caused by personal illness, paying for cleaning services doesn’t seem all that bad.
2) Less Stress
Your employees are your top priority and they're the lifeblood behind the production. We all know the worst part about cleaning is the fact that it’s, well, cleaning. As a child, you dreaded doing these chores, and it’s possible that those feelings haven't changed especially at work. As a result, you’ve probably neglected a few things here and there along the way. For us, doing these tasks is just another day on the job and we take pride in doing a great job - every time. In fact, we’ll even work around YOUR work schedule to make sure you aren’t bothered by our presence. Rather than spending time doing something that stresses you out, leave the cleaning to us and spend more time working on what matters most to you.
3) More Productive Workers
In a 2011 survey by OfficeMax of more than 1,000 U.S. adults, 90% admit that unorganized clutter has a negative impact on their life, with 77% claiming that their productivity is affected the most. Additionally, in a study conducted at Brigham Young University, 88% of respondents report that visible buildups of dirt and dust can actually hinder their ability to concentrate, be productive, and learn. Hiring a professional cleaning service can help negate those issues.
4) More Professional Workplace
Did you know that 35% of workers feel ashamed or embarrassed when other people see their workplace? While not always the same in other countries, we Americans do often associate cleanliness with professionalism. If you are bringing clientele in your office or building like most businesses do. The cleanliness of your office can be a directly reflection on the product(s) or service(s) that you will be providing your clients.
5) Higher Quality Clean
We're not doubting your ability but you might think you’re doing an adequate job as the full-time manager and the part-time cleaner. There really is no one better at cleaning than the professional commercial cleaners. One of the more common analogies we like to give is going to the dentist. While we're all able to brush our own teeth, nothing compares to the level of clean we receive from the dentist. In the commercial cleaning industry, cleaning professionals are equipped with all the necessary tools to get the job done, as well as a better understanding of how things need to be done.
We urge you to scroll below and take a look at the specific services we are able to provide for you.
Commercial Cleaning Services
Commercial Carpet Cleaning
We offer fully customized carpet maintenance programs that will fit your needs and your budget. We offer both hot water extraction(steam cleaning) and low moisture encapsulation cleaning methods. What that means for you is that we can put together a plan to make your carpeting last long term. Carpet traffic can vary in your building from area to area and floor to floor, and soiling levels can vary as well. Factors that affect soiling levels are, how many hard surface to carpet transitions are there, do you utilize walk off mats when transitioning from hard surface to carpet, what type of facility or business do you have. Manufacturing facilities will usually be more heavily soiled and present us with soiling that has a lot of dust and even possibly grease. No matter the soiling type we have a solution for it. Typically, we clean major traffic areas in our clients' building multiple times a year to keep up with appearance as needed. We offer programs that include monthly cleanings to bi-annual carpet cleaning. Our main concern is that your carpet is clean and that you have a healthy work environment to work in. Call us today and schedule a walk through of your building so we can discuss your carpet cleaning needs.
Janitorial Cleaning Service
We also offer customized janitorial cleaning programs. Just like carpet cleaning, janitorial is much the same. Cleaning frequency is based on the needs of the business, the amount of traffic and use, and budget. We provide everything from 5 days a week service to 1 day a week deep cleans. We also utilize our own cleaning solutions, equipment, and supplies. We do our absolute best to meet special requirements for every business we work with. For instance, some may require the use of specific sanitizing or disinfecting agents. We have high standard quality control programs in place so that we are delivering the highest level of cleaning possible. Each janitorial cleaning account is assign a quality control supervisor who does does inspections at every cleaning. Our janitorial cleaning programs consist of the following services: high and low dusting, kitchen and appliance cleaning, mopping of hard surfaces, desk cleaning, trash removal, bathroom cleaning and restocking. Finally we offer both daytime and nighttime cleaning schedules that will not disrupt your flow of work. Our goal is to let our high level of quality been seen through our workmanship, yet not be seen to where normal operations flow smoothly for your company.
Restroom Tile Sanitation
The restroom in any building or facility is one of the more bacteria laden areas for reasons we are sure we all understand. However, restroom sanitation solutions that are offered by many companies do not truly deal with the problem. They offer solutions that mask the issue with aerosols and other masking agents. We believe in getting the root of the problem at the source. If a restroom has been poorly maintained it can take some time to get it up to par, especially when dealing with urine odor. When urine absorbs into the tile it will travel deeper and deeper into the tile and into the grout. To combat this, we use enzymatic cleaning solutions that penetrate into the tile and begin the digest the bacteria in the urine so that we can begin to remove it. As mentioned, depending on the severity multiple cleanings may be needed to bring the restroom to a manageable level. Different tile types and different grout types also are a major factor. One of the more common issues we see is that some janitorial companies apply finish or a wax to the tile in an attempt to fix this issue. For tile and grout, this will only make the problem worse and much harder to fix. As will all of our commercial cleaning services, we offer custom tailored cleaning frequencies for our restroom sanitation service.
Post Construction Cleaning
There is nothing more refreshing than a brand new building to work in, an addition, or even renovations to update the look, flow, and feel of a building. After all of the drywall, electrical, painting, flooring installation and other contracting services are done. There is still more work to be done and that is after or post construction clean up. After construction there is typically a thin layer of dust covering everything from top to bottom. You certainly don't want to be breathing that in while working and you definitely don't want it on any new furniture or computer equipment. That is where we come in. We offer after construction clean up where we can utilize a combination of our commercial cleaning services to make your new working space is clean as possible. We find that the best approach is to work from the top to bottom which includes dry and wet dusting of fixtures, lights, and trim. We also offer wall washing if it is needed and can also wet wash trim, doors, and baseboards. Most standard shop vacs - even the ones with filters will simply just blow the dust around. That is why we use HEPA vacuums when cleaning up drywall dust. The HEPA filtration ensures that only clean air is coming back out. Our main goal with our post construction clean up service is that you have a new clean and healthy environment to work in.
