Benefits of Outsourcing Your Commercial Cleaning in Tampa

happy team in clean office

Making the decision to outsource your commercial cleaning is a strategic move for your business. Office managers with looming workloads and tight budgets find that outsourcing services, like maintenance or janitorial services that are out of the scope of your company’s expertise, is a workable, cost-effective solution to the headaches caused by leaning on employees or in-house teams.

Outsourcing cleaning services can have many positive outcomes for your business. By choosing a provider that understands your industry, you can maximize the benefits. The right partner will provide the professionalism, expertise, responsiveness and quality you deserve. Consider these factors when selecting your commercial cleaning service:

1. Expert Cleaning

Just like you provide expertise in your business, professional cleaners are leaders and experts in their industry, too. Commercial cleaners spend time and money to train their staff in the most advanced cleaning methods and to understand techniques and chemical mixtures that should not be placed in the hands of a novice. Commercial cleaning companies can provide tailored services that meet the needs of your specific business. And because their work is constantly being assessed, quality control is achievable and easy to maintain.

2. Save Money

With commercial cleaning expertise, cleaners can do better work in less time, which is cost effective for your company. Cleaning companies also are able to purchase products from vendors in bulk at reduced rates and pass along the savings to you. And you don’t have to keep up with inventory, uniforms, equipment and related expenses.

3. Transfer Liability

Janitorial work carries specific risks. Commercial cleaning companies handle their own liability and insurance costs.

4. Choose Your Schedule

Commercial cleaners offer flexible hours. Perhaps cleaning during office hours isn’t the right fit for your business. Commercial cleaners can work early mornings, evenings or weekends. You select the time that is most convenient for your office and adjust frequency based on need. During flu season or before high-peak traffic, you might scale up your cleaning with a simple phone call.

5. Boost Employee Morale

A clean space creates a professional atmosphere. The average working adult spends more time awake at work than at home. A clean office environment can improve productivity by boosting morale and by reducing illness and stress. Healthy employees take more pride in their work and fewer sick days.

6. Experience Fewer Headaches

With a commercial cleaning company handling the responsibilities of cleaning standards, staffing, schedules, background checks, OSHA requirements and insurance costs, office managers can focus on responsibilities more integral to their business.

When your company makes the decision to outsource commercial cleaning, you contribute to your bottom line and help build confidence by promoting health, happiness and well-being of your staff.

How to Help Reduce the Risk of Spreading the Flu in Your Tampa Office

Flu season is in full swing, and this year’s virus is spreading rapidly. The CDC reports that this is the worst flu season since the 2009 swine flu pandemic.

But the flu isn’t limited to schools and now is the time to make sure you are doing all you can at the office to make sure to keep your staff safe and your workspace clean.

The flu is easily spread. When people sneeze, cough and talk, droplets are produced and land on surfaces that others touch. Once a person touches an object with a flu germ, they can become infected if they touch their eyes, nose or mouth.

Office managers can share the responsibility of keeping employees protected by partnering with commercial cleaners to take precautions to help prevent the spread of the flu.

To start, office managers can take initiative by reminding staff to take basic precautions during flu season. These tips should be communicated regularly at staff meetings, through emails and on signs throughout the office.

Wash your hands.
Use soap and water and scrub for at least 20 seconds. Always wash before preparing food and after using the restroom.

Use hand sanitizer.
Sanitizers with 60% alcohol are best. Rub hands until they are dry.

Cover your nose and mouth.
Sneeze into a tissue and dispose of it immediately, or use the crook of your elbow.

Use no-touch wastebaskets.
Properly dispose of used tissues, wipes, food, paper towels and sanitation materials in strategically placed wastebaskets in prominent areas like lobbies, kitchens, restrooms and halls.

Stay home when you are sick.
Protect yourself and your colleagues. You need the rest — work will be there when you return. And remember, there may be people in the office, like the elderly or someone with a long-term health problem, that would be at a higher risk of contracting a contagious illness.

But, you need more than your staff following good personal hygiene procedures and clear office policies. You need facility-wide cleaning strategies to protect your employees and your business.

Commercial cleaning companies, like Office Pride, can provide assistance to help keep you and your workplace clean and healthy during flu season and throughout the year. Are you wondering what experts can do to help reduce the risk of spreading germs? Professional cleaners can use best practices and intensive cleaning programs to help eliminate germs before the flu infects your employees.

Maintain a cleaning and disinfecting routine.
Daily cleaning is important during flu season. Flu viruses can live between 2-8 hours after landing on a surface. A professional cleaning service will clean each evening and disinfect the office.

Pay special attention to shared contact points.
There germs are there, but where are they hiding? The CDC recommends daily sanitizing of surfaces and objects that are touched often. Your commercial cleaner will spend time disinfecting the commonly touched areas, including:

  • Doorknobs
  • Restroom stall locks
  • Light switches
  • Stair rails
  • Elevator buttons
  • Copiers
  • Microwave touchpads
  • Handles (refrigerator, microwave, faucets, etc.)

Properly disinfect.
A color-coded cleaning system, like the one Office Pride uses, keeps safety at the core of cleaning and eliminates cross-contamination. Professional cleaners are trained to use specific colors in certain locations so that the same rags and equipment aren’t shared between break rooms, waiting rooms and bathrooms.

Use products safely.
Leave handling cleaning products to the professionals. Our commercial cleaners are thoroughly trained, so you don’t have to worry about employees touching chemicals that could be hazardous, especially if cleaners or disinfectants are dangerously combined. For your protection and safety, Office Pride uses Green Seal certified commercial cleaning products, which are far more effective than retail cleaning products. We use them at no extra cost to the customer, and we keep Safety Data Sheets in your janitorial closet in case OSHA drops by for an inspection.

Of course, it’s impossible to completely stop the flu. But if a you can reduce risk and incidences of illness among workers, then your company may see improvements in the well-being of your staff and the productivity in your office.
