The ROI of Hiring a Commercial Cleaning Company
If you hire a commercial cleaning company, when will you see a return on investment? Working with professionals isn’t just a cost-sink. Instead, a commercial cleaning company can make you back some money, especially if you’ve been having your staff do the cleaning until now. While the exact ROI you’ll see is tough to calculate without specifics about your business, this guide will point you in the right direction. Here are several areas you can expect to find savings.
1. Save on Cleaning Products and Equipment
Investing in high-quality cleaning equipment and supplies can be expensive as an individual business. In an attempt to save money, you might invest in cheaper equipment, but that can result in a slower, worse clean. There are plenty of situations where you might require a specific cleaning agent, from salt remover to hospital-quality disinfectant, that you just can’t find cheaply. Never mind the time you waste trying to find green alternatives or the right cleaning solution for the job.
At JAN-PRO we buy even niche cleaner types in bulk and have invested in the truly high-end equipment, such as vacuums with HEPA filters. You can get the benefit of this amazing equipment, without purchasing or renting it, when you work with us.
2. Divert Employee Resources to Other Tasks
We know that if we set our professional cleaners to the tasks your staff do, they’d probably do a worse job, even if they took a lot longer. The same happens to your staff when you ask them to clean. It can be a waste of your time and your staff’s time to give them cleaning tasks.
When you hire professional janitorial services, you don’t need to spend your staffing hours on cleaning. Instead you get the benefits of our training and experience, so you get a faster, more thorough clean while spending less of your own resources.
3. Save on Property Maintenance
Another return on investment you get from hiring professional cleaners is that your building is better cared for, and therefore needs less maintenance, repairs and replacement. You don’t need to replace your flooring nearly as quickly when it is properly maintained. Proper cleaning, especially after humid spells or in humid environments, can prevent mold growth before it ruins drywall. Other areas you might not even think to clean, from curtains to baseboards, will last much longer when a professional cleans them. In the end, you save a lot of money from repairs and replacements you didn’t have to complete.
4. Have a Better Work Environment
Are your employees distracted, uncomfortable, or sick? When you work with cleaning companies, they create a customized cleaning plan that helps employees stay healthier and more comfortable. Regular sanitation of high-touch surfaces, such as doorknobs, reduce absences and sick leave. Proper vacuuming with HEPA filters removes allergens, dust and debris from the air so employees can breathe easier.
Professional cleaning also helps you demonstrate that you’ve done your due diligence in preventing slip, trip and fall accidents. We keep records of the cleaning services we provide and can help you reduce your business’ liability. Ultimately, your staff and your business benefit from having a cleaner, safer work environment.
5. Appeal to Customers
A cleaner, more comfortable property makes a good impression on your customers. It demonstrates that you care about their experience in your building, that you pay attention to the little details that matter, and that you’re a successful, thriving business. That’s the kind of company customers want to buy from, and clients want to work with.
A dirty office or property demonstrates the opposite. Unpleasant smells, mold, and other noticeable mess makes people feel uncomfortable. Never mind that if a customer gets an infection from your gym, or feels like your doctor’s office isn’t properly sterilized, you may lose his or her business forever.
6. Save Time Managing Your Space
If you or your staff are cleaning your office or other property, you have to spend time making sure cleaning is done properly, on time. When you’re busy, cleaning will often be neglected. You, as the business owner or manager, can save a lot of your time and energy by working with a professional. At JAN-PRO we make our commitments to clean your property and do a thorough job, every time.
Choose JAN-PRO as Your Commercial Cleaner
Working with professional commercial cleaning services gets you a high level of cleaning, in less time and typically for less money than you’d spend trying to clean your workplace yourself. The specific ROI you’ll see from commercial cleaning is hard to calculate, but JAN-PRO can help you estimate it and understand the benefits.
