When you run a business one of the most important things you need to consider is the appearance of your office. First impressions count. When clients, prospective customers and other VIPs walk through your front doors for the first time it is critical that you present your business in the most favourable light. You’ll be dressed professionally and certainly do your utmost to present your products and services as best as possible. Don’t skimp on cleaning. Having your office professionally cleaned, regularly, will go a long way to helping you succeed and ensuring the health of all workers is maintained. Here’s why!
We’ve already talked about first impressions but how about the condition of the rest of the office as you proudly walk clients through to the meeting room. If they see cluttered desks, messy and smelly kitchens and an unorganised environment, it may reflect badly on your overall business. Whilst a professional cleaning company may work after hours to spruce up the area, all employees need to do their part too to ensure bins are emptied, documents are filed and food is not left laying around. The reputation of your business could be impacted.
Walking into a freshly cleaned office is a fantastic way to start the day. Floors vacuumed, bathrooms spotless and a sense of organisation. Giving your employees a great environment to work in, each and every day, helps to spark a positive vibe and encourage motivation. It also ensures they have a professional attitude and it goes a long way to helping them to maintain their health.
How to select an office cleaning company
There are no doubt a number of commercial cleaning companies in your local area. Knowing how to choose the right one is not that hard once you know the areas to focus on.
- Experience: make sure your chosen company has a lot of experience to ensure they are capable of tackling a wide variety of situations.
- Reputation: chat to other local businesses and see who they use. Choosing a cleaning service with a great reputation is what matters. You need to ensure that they are reliable and will clean your office to the standards that you expect.
- Services: get a list of all the services that the company offers and you’ll soon see who goes above and beyond.
- Price: whilst price does matter, because after all you are running a business, don’t opt for the cheapest company expecting they will deliver the goods.
A commercial cleaning company has the know-how and equipment to get the job done. Sure you can clean yourself but why not spend time focusing on your business, and let the people with the cleaning experience do what they do best. They can even help maintain office plants and they will definitely clean behind desks and other furniture in spots you probably won’t consider. Cleaners are far more efficient and help you achieve a spotless office for everyone.
Put yourself in the shoes of a visitor to determine whether you really need a cleaner. Sit in the foyer. Wait in the reception area. What can you see when you look around? What is on the floor? What can you smell? If you were a potential client how would you feel with the environment you have just walked into?
Finding a commercial cleaning company to clean your office, spotlessly, is essential. It may take time to find the perfect business to service you to your expectations but it will be well worth the outlay. In the long run, ensuring your business looks clean every day, is a must. When your visitors walk through the door and across the floor, don’t give them any opportunity to second guess your standards. Make a lasting and positive impression and it will go a long way.
