Not Using a Professional Commercial Cleaner Could Be Risky Business
November 15, 2020 | AUTHOR: Tammy Wright
Many businesses are calculating the benefits and risks of employees working at the office versus working from home. A major consideration of bringing employees back into the office is making sure your workplace is cleaned and sanitized. Why risk the welfare and health of your team when you can call on the help of expert commercial cleaners?
Benefits of Commercial Cleaning
Just like you provide expertise in your business, professional cleaners are also leaders and experts in their industry. Outsourcing cleaning services can have many positive outcomes for your business. The right partner will understand your industry and provide the professionalism, expertise, responsiveness and quality you expect and deserve. At Office Pride Commercial Cleaning Services, we believe our customers should be fully informed, and they can expect the highest quality in everything we do. Following are a few of the benefits you can expect from an expert commercial cleaner:
A Safer, Healthier Work Environment
Professional commercial cleaning companies are typically on top of the latest technologies and best methods for keeping offices and workspaces sanitized and disinfected. For example, Office Pride cleans not only for appearance but also for health and wellness. Office Pride technicians understand that cleaning is only part of the solution and provide essential services on a daily basis, routinely battling microbes, germs and viruses to help to create a clean and safe work environment for you and your team.
Increased Employee Productivity
A clean and sanitized workspace contributes to greater employee productivity through health and safety benefits. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that absenteeism costs U.S. employers $225.8 billion, or $1,685 per employee, in productivity losses. The CDC plays a critical role in helping U.S. businesses remain competitive and productive by issuing guidance that emphasizes the importance of maintaining safer, healthier workplaces. “Promoting safe and healthy work practices boosts profitability and productivity among employers of all sizes,” says the CDC.
Reduced Liability Risks
There are many risks involved when businesses rely on their employees to clean offices, including slip-and-fall accidents or the improper use of chemicals. Cleaning is best left to professionals who are trained to operate cleaning equipment and handle cleaning chemicals properly. Commercial cleaning companies train their staffs in the most advanced cleaning methods and to understand techniques and chemical mixtures that should not be placed in the hands of untrained employees. Also, because the work of professional cleaning crews is constantly being assessed, quality control is achievable and easy to maintain.
Hiring an uninsured cleaning company also carries significant risk, although it may save you money in the short term. Commercial cleaning companies handle their own liability and insurance costs. Office Pride franchise owners are OSHA-compliant, fully bonded and insured, and Safety Data Sheets on all products are kept on site.
A Wider Range of Services
Hiring a cleaner may save money and allow your office to look presentably clean, but their services may be too basic. Without the tools or resources necessary to provide your business with an array of services, they may not be able to maintain the cleanliness of your office properly. Office Pride can provide elevated services like the Touchless Sanitizing system, which is up to 60 times more efficient in removing bacteria from surfaces than standard wiping and mopping.
Electrostatic sprayers and misters are making headlines and becoming the new standard in infection control these days. Sprayers or misters evenly cover surfaces with a commercial-grade disinfectant with a five-minute dwell time, which is the time that a disinfectant must sit on a surface to kill germs. The electrostatic tool gives technicians the ability to sanitize even the hardest-to-reach places.
