Grimy coffee cups in the sink. A ring around the toilet. A carpet scattered with debris and lint. Desks piled high with papers and rubbish. Does any of this sound like your office?
No matter what industry you work in, you are probably all too familiar with the trials and tribulations of keeping your office clean and tidy. Let’s face it – a room packed full of people sharing a space solely because they work together can have the tendency to be a bit grotty!
If you have been considering hiring a cleaner for your office, these five reasons are sure to convince you that employing a professional cleaning service is indeed a fantastic idea.
- Hiring cleaning help will increase workplace harmony – When employees are expected to clean up after one another, morale can sink to an all time low and low level skirmishes can become blown out of proportion. Hiring a third party to keep your space clean will help to minimise conflict and keep things sparkling. Some studies even show that a clean office space can increase productivity and boost sales – this is certainly something worth trying.
- A cleaner will decrease allergens and respiratory hazards – An office building can easily become a massive hazard for allergies and illness when left untended; an untrained eye can easily miss the myriad places dust can hide. Cleaners are skilled at finding – and eradicating – dust, no matter where it is hiding, helping to keep everyone’s allergies under control.
- They will keep things looking professional – Even if you do not normally host clients in your office, your working space should look professional and attractive at all times. After all, your working environment sends a message to your employees, your suppliers and especially to yourself. By keeping things spotless your office space will exude the same care, attention to detail and competence that you want your enterprise to embody.
- They can help you keep your supplies well stocked – Do you find that your office hygiene supplies often run out without you noticing? A professional cleaning service can help you to ensure that your paper products, loo roll and other sanitation supplies are fully stocked. You’ll never have to worry about running out of kitchen roll or cleaning solutions again – most cleaners can provide you with this service as a part of their package.
- A well cleaned office will help reduce sick days – You don’t want your office’s dust and grime to make your staff sick, but that is exactly what it could be doing as you read this. By keeping your office clean and hygienic, you can help to ensure that your staff is healthier. If your employees are sick less often, this will result in fewer sick days and ultimately in higher profits for your business.
Whether you decide to hire a cleaner to come in once a day, once a week or even once a month, keeping your work space clean and tidy just makes good business sense.
