- >> Does Office Pride of Westminster-Eldersburg offer green cleaning?
Our location uses sustainable cleaning products to be kind to the Earth and offer you peace of mind. We use many eco-friendly Green Seal™-certified cleaning products. In addition to using sustainable products, we use the latest equipment and technology, such as microfiber mops, high-filtration vacuums, advanced technology floor care machines and color-coded cloths to protect your indoor environment.
- >> How does commercial cleaning help prevent the spread of the flu?
Our thorough cleaning practices can improve job satisfaction by reducing employee sick leave rates and protecting staff from productivity-reducing illnesses like the flu.
How can a dedicated commercial cleaning service protect you? High-contact surfaces, like door knobs, elevator buttons, light switches and kitchen appliances, are incubators for nasty bugs that can wipe out a staff for a week, and they’re everywhere. We take great care to disinfect high-contact areas, especially at the height of cold and flu seasons. Deep cleaning of workspaces and common areas also aids in preventing the spread of disease.
You would not want the same sponge used to wipe down a restroom counter to be used on your desk or on the refrigerator door. This unsanitary practice is more common among untrained janitorial staff than you would think. We understand the importance of eliminating cross-contamination in all work environments, including schools, urgent care and other medical establishments. Our cleaners undergo extensive training in following our special color-coded cleaning system, which ensures that cleaning supplies are designated for use in specific parts of the facility.
Office Pride of Westminster-Eldersburg can help protect your office during flu season. Call us to schedule a free appraisal today.
- >> How often should an office be cleaned?
The frequency you need to have your office cleaned depends on the amount of traffic and type of cleaning services you need. For example, a high-traffic physician’s office might require daily cleaning, whereas a small staff in an office suite might only need one thorough cleaning each week.
We will gladly join you for a walk-through of your office to answer questions and provide recommendations that are customized to your needs. Call us to schedule a free appraisal today.
- >> Are commercial cleaning services right for my facility/workplace?
Of course! Office managers usually don’t notice how quickly cleanliness can go downhill until the office has reached the need for critical attention. Stay ahead of the curve!
Making the decision to hire a commercial cleaning service is a strategic move for your business. Office managers with overwhelming 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.
Consider these benefits of hiring a commercial cleaning service.
- 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.
- Transfer Liability
Janitorial work carries specific risks. Commercial cleaning companies handle their own liability and insurance costs.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
