Sure, you can manage your own business, and if it’s small enough you can spare a few hours of your day vacuuming and mopping the floor, wiping your desk and the display racks, etc. But when you add that to all the things you still have to do, like doing inventory, attending to customers, receiving and arranging new goods for display, etc. it becomes quite a burden. And that’s only for a small business, like a corner store. What if you’re the manager of a large business?
There are reasons you need a reliable cleaning service. Forte Commercial Cleaning outlines some of them.
Impressions & PR
Your customers, clients, or business partners won’t usually comment on how clean your premises are, but leave one overflowing trash can or a smelly toilet and your business will surely earn their distaste. These days, one mistake like that can be blown out of proportion; all it takes is one Instagram or Twitter post and you have a PR nightmare on your hands.
Let’s say you have an office. Your employees are in your office for at least 8 hours, 5 days a week. The more time people spend in one place, the more trash accumulates, the more dust and dirt gathers, the more grime in the toilet, etc. And when this happens, your employees are exposed to germs and allergens that may cause diseases or trigger allergies. This is one of the reasons employees leave.
A cluttered and dirty workplace makes people uncomfortable. If those people are your employees, trust that their productivity will go down substantially. Who wants to work in a place about to be overrun by filth? If people start calling in sick, your production will definitely take a beating. Would you risk closing shop just because nobody wipes the blinds clean?
Cleaning is an important part of running a business, but you can’t worry about it all the time, do it yourself, or force your employees to do it. You need to hire people to make sure your business is free from dirt, germs, trash, and allergens.
