It is a demonstrable fact that commercial offices and establishments should be kept clean. In fact, the law demands for establishments to have a clean and healthy environment. Apart from this, a clean workplace creates a pleasant and inviting ambiance. If you had to work in a dirty and cluttered office, you probably wouldn’t be too inspired to carry out your tasks. Of course, customers and clients would be put off by an untidy establishment and will opt to do business with your competition. So if you want to make your business grow, make sure that you provide a clean and healthy environment for your employees, customers, and clients.
In keeping your establishment clean, you’ll need people to do the cleaning. You have two options. You can either hire a contracted cleaning service or get an in-house cleaning staff. Between these two, hiring a contracted cleaning service will save you more money. How so? Let’s find out.
When you hire a contracted cleaning company, you will be provided with a team of professional and highly trained cleaners. The cleaning company will also be providing the cleaning materials and equipment needed to carry out the cleaning of your establishment. On the other hand, if you hire an in-house cleaning staff, you’ll have to spend for training them as well as the cleaning equipment and materials needed. You’ll also be spending for the repair and or replacement of any equipment that starts malfunctioning. If you compare the cost, you’ll end up paying less if you choose to hire a contracted cleaning service.
Hiring an in-house cleaning staff also means a larger overhead. You’ll have to include your cleaning staff in your payroll and provide them with benefits as mandated by law. If you hire a contracted cleaning service, the cleaning company will be the one providing the pay and benefits of their cleaning professionals. You’ll only have to pay for the cost of the service you get from them and this is significantly lower.
Hiring an in-house time also takes precious time away from you. Time is a precious commodity and in the world of business time lost is money lost. Instead of pouring much time in the hiring process of in-house cleaning staff, you and your employees can spend it on more important business-related tasks geared to earn you profit and grow your business.
