Everyone knows that places need to be kept clean but there is a certain superiority to hiring outsourced janitorial services in order to keep your office or business clean as opposed to having the office employees maintain it. Offices cleaning services can be very beneficial because commercial office cleaning services will always be at a higher standard that what your employees will do. Here are a few benefits of hiring outsourced janitorial services instead of asking your employees to clean.
While cleaning should not be beneath everyone, it can take away from the work that your employees are doing. For example, if an employee is working fervently all day one certain accounts and using all their brain power to ensure clients and customers are satisfied. When he is getting ready to go home, if instead of hearing a ‘good job’ or ‘well done’ all he hears is his boss asking him to take out the trash or clean the sinks before he leaves, it can make him feel like his work is unappreciated and underestimated. The duties of the professional cleaner are their work and so there is no chance that they will feel like it’s not a part of their job because it is their entire job. When they were hired they agreed to the terms of work; cleaning. When you hired your employees, they did not agree to cleaning being apart of the job description. No matter what kind of work it is, it is not fair to add more to the job description after the person is already hired.
The truth is, not one of your employees is going to be able to get the job done as well as a professional outsourced janitorial services company would be able to. They have the tools and the experience and the knowledge to get it done properly. If you asked your employees to clean, chances are you’d have to go behind them and redo it anyway. But, using a professional company will give you the peace of mind that allows you to come home in the evening, knowing that you can come back in the morning to a fresh and clean environment without having to get on everyone’s backs to do a good job. Trying to get office workers to do duties other than office duties will just result in frustration and annoyance as the office gets dirtier and dirtier because of a job not well done. Leave it to the professionals, they know what they are doing.
One of the great things about outsourced janitorial services is that the company will have researched the best ways of cleaning, as far as products go as well as the environment. They will understand important factors such as preserving your drains by not pouring cleaning chemicals down them, etc. A good janitorial company may even use green products that will not harm the environment of your work place. There would be nothing worse than to hire a cleaning company only to find out that your plumbing needs to be replaced because of chemicals eating away at them. Your office employees will have no idea about any of this expect what they know already for their own home cleaning. But, they definitely won’t know as much as a professional janitor or cleaner would.
Pride of Work
The main reason that the job wouldn’t get done right if your employees were in charge of the cleaning is that they plain wouldn’t care. By the time their work day was complete all they would be thinking about is going home. They could care less what the office looks like at that point. But outsourced janitorial services would have the added benefit of wanting to do a job well done. Not only to impress their own company and yours but to have a certain pride in their work. Cleaners tend to be a little on the perfectionist side and take pride in how a place looks when they are done.
So, in a nutshell, don’t try to force your office employees to clean in order to save money. Hire a cleaning service that can save you the time and money and ensure that your office is clean at all times.
