A good number of Australian office managers think that they do not need a commercial cleaning operator to keep their place of work spick and span. All too often, they rely on casual labour in their area to come in a few times a week to dust and vacuum the office space. Even worse, in order to save a few dollars, some office managers will do their own cleaning after their usual working hours—and not even get paid for it! However, commercial cleaning companies exist in nearly every city and large town in the country and hiring one can be much more cost-effective than you had first thought. What are the main reasons for hiring professional cleaners to look after your office?
- Boost Productivity
To begin with, a commercial cleaning company will always carry out a much more effective job when it comes to removing dirt and grime from an office. Although casual cleaners will often do a regular job, some of their work can be superficial by nature. Compare that with a professional cleaning firm that will not only tidy up your office and keep it looking good but actually get rid of microbial dirt and germs. When your office is cleaned properly, there are fewer unwanted allergens and germ left in it. This would mean that office staff is less likely to become ill, and you get a boost in productivity as a result. In short, clean offices are more productive than dirty ones.
- Lower-Cost Cleaning Products
Because commercial cleaning operators buy their cleaning products in bulk, you get an economy of scale. In short, this means that the savings they make when buying things like carpet cleaners or detergent are passed on to you as their client. When you use a professional firm, all of the bulk purchasing power your cleaners have is reflected in the prices they charge. Compared with a casual cleaner who buys their cleaning products from the local supermarket, this can constitute quite a hefty saving over time.
- Continuity of Service
Commercial cleaners are geared up to the needs of modern businesses. This will mean being able to provide staff to cover if your usual cleaner is not available for any reason. When a locally hired cleaner is sick or goes on holiday, offices will usually suffer because they are not cleaned properly, if at all! However, with a commercial cleaning firm, you will commonly have a service level agreement in place, which means you are guaranteed a cleaner even if some cover needs to be provided from elsewhere.
