Many companies today contract out to cleaning services companies so that they are assured that premises are well kept, clean and tidy at all times.
Outsourced cleaning services are now a well established option for businesses where it is simply not possible to have office staff also responsible for cleaning the premises. Commercial cleaning is a cost efficient option in these situations. There are many good cleaning companies that offer office cleaning services which generally includes the disposal of all rubbish, dusting of desks and shelving and vacuuming total floor area. By retaining the services of such a company owners of the business can relax in the knowledge that the premises are always well presented.
In addition office workers do not have the burden of fulfilling a cleaning role at the end of the working day when they would prefer to be on their way home. The reality is that when staff is asked to also complete office cleaning they often find it demeaning and feel that they lose status as a result of taking on this responsibility. Even junior staff undertaking a commercial cleaning role as part of their duties expresses unhappiness and have low self-esteem.
Companies that provide cleaning services are also able to extend their offer to include regular carpet cleaning – full shampoo. This is easily organised by simply notifying the cleaning services entity that carpet cleaning is required, beyond the normal vacuuming that is done on a daily basis. It will necessitate your own staff clearing the floors of any boxes and other items to ensure that the cleaners have easy access to all areas of carpet. Commercial cleaning of carpet is very effective and lifts stains and marks that may appear to be un-removable.
The commercial powered vacuum cleaners today do a very efficient job and after carpet cleaning will result in an almost as new appearance for the carpets. While clearing the floor area so that cleaning services can include shampooing the carpet may be considered a negative, the reality is quite different. Many companies use the cleaning services shampoo as an opportunity to have a general office tidy-up and accumulated paperwork and other office stuff is disposed of. Again this disposal can be handled by the cleaning services entity – all commercial cleaning companies have arrangements in place for the removal of more than the daily rubbish bin collection.
Small businesses owners often think that while they might need a domestic cleaning service or general housekeeping they do not need it in the work environment. In reality office employees create considerable rubbish at their desks and regularly use amenities through the day. It is particularly important that toilet and hand basin amenities are kept tidy and clean where a business has visitors to its offices or shop floor. While it obviously the responsibility of each member of the staff to make sure amenities are clean after use, their efforts are usually minimal. Commercial cleaning services will ensure that each day toilets and hand-basins are thoroughly cleaned with disinfectant so that if visitors or clients come to the office you will know that these areas of general use are in good shape.
