Why You Should Hire a Professional Cleaning Company
A clean workplace creates a professional look and helps employees stay focused. Although business owners recognize the importance of keeping a clean facility, many are reluctant to invest in professional cleaning services. Ultimately, the decision to choose amateur cleaning services will put your reputation and your employees at risk.
There are many benefits to hiring a professional cleaning company like Star Team Cleaning.
They are Cleaning Experts
When you hire a professional cleaning company, you get help from true cleaning experts. Because they specialize in commercial cleaning, they know how to get the job done quickly, efficiently and properly.
When you rely on your employees to clean your facility, you get inconsistent results. A clean workplace leaves a good impression on clients, customers and employees while creating a professional appearance. When you hire a professional cleaning service, you get the quality results you expect and maintain your professionalism.
Some facilities require specialized cleaning processes that only a professional can provide. Hiring an untrained professional or relying on your employees could put your reputation on the line.
Save Time and Money
How much employee time is wasted cleaning your facility? With a professional cleaning service, employees can focus on core tasks instead of taking time out of their day to clean. This boosts productivity without sacrificing a clean and healthy work environment.
Improved production will boost your bottom line while saving you time and money.
For example, let’s say that each employee spends two hours a week on cleaning tasks and employees are paid an average of $20 an hour. Essentially, you are paying each employee $40 a week to clean. If you have five employees in charge of cleaning tasks, that’s $200 a week you’re spending on cleaning.
Commercial cleaning services are similar in cost (maybe lower, depending on your needs), but they allow your employees to focus on productive work instead of cleaning (a non-core task), which will increase your bottom line.
Safer, Healthier Work Environment
Professional commercial cleaners, like Star Team Cleaning, help make your facility a safer, healthier place to work. We have expert knowledge and training as well as the right supplies and equipment to ensure your facility is sparkling clean.
Furthermore, professional cleaners can use “green” cleaning products to help maintain healthy indoor air quality.
To keep indoor air fresh and clean, air ducts must be cleaned regularly. Duct cleaning will remove dust, allergens, mold, bacteria, dirt and debris that may be harming your air quality. The cleaning process can be complex and requires the right training and equipment that only a professional cleaning service can provide.
Many of your employees may also suffer from allergies, and they can bring allergens home from work, affecting their health and causing them to miss work. Regular, professional cleaning will help reduce workplace allergens that can lead to absenteeism. Frequent cleaning of upholstery and carpeting can help reduce or eliminate allergens that affect employee health.
Along with remove dust and allergens, professional cleaners will also sanitize surfaces in your workplace to help slow or stop the spread of illness. Shared surfaces, such as bathrooms, training rooms and break rooms, must be disinfected regularly. Surfaces that are regularly touched, such as keyboards and desks, must also be sanitized on a regular basis. Employees cannot be trusted with such an important task. Professional cleaners have the training and supplies for proper, safe disinfection.
During cold and flu season, regular sanitization of surfaces can reduce the number of employees calling in sick. Although employees are asked to stay home when ill, many will disregard this request and come into work anyway, potentially spreading their illness to co-workers.
Reducing absenteeism means increased productivity and an improved bottom line.
Wider Range of Cleaning Services
Commercial cleaners provide conventional cleaning services, such as floor cleaning, janitorial services, carpet care, restroom cleaning and surface cleaning. However, many companies, including Star Team Cleaning, offer additional, specialized services, such as:
- Window and wall washing
- Floor waxing and stripping
- Coffee station cleaning
- Garbage removal
- Tile and grout cleaning
- Upholstery detailing
- Blind cleaning
Different commercial cleaners offer different services, so it’s important to find a service that will meet your needs. At Star Team Cleaning, we provide specialized services for:
- Fitness centers and gyms
- Schools and daycare centers
- Medical offices
- Post construction
- Factories, warehouses and manufacturing facilities
If you have unique or complex needs, it is crucial to choose a cleaning service that has the right training and experience to meet those needs. Even for simple office cleaning, it’s important to hire commercial cleaning services.
Depending on the industry and workplace, liability may be a concern. Relying on employees or untrained individuals can cause unsafe working conditions that may put you at risk of liability claims. The right professionals will ensure that your facility is cleaned properly and to the appropriate standards.
Improved Employee Happiness
A clean workplace is a happy workplace. Hiring a professional cleaning service can boost employee morale and productivity. A clean, fresh and organized workplace helps employees stay focused and feeling good.
Happy employees are more likely to stick around, spread the word that they love working for you and attract other top talent. In this way, something as simple as hiring professional cleaners can help you attract more talented employees to your workforce.
Even on a more basic level, employees will share their positive thoughts and feedback on social media and other online platforms. Their positive feedback will help elevate your brand and build a positive reputation.
More Storage Space
In-house cleaning may seem like a convenient option, but along with wasting time and money, you’re also wasting storage space. How much of your storage space is taken up by cleaning supplies and equipment?
A professional cleaning service will bring all of the supplies and equipment needed to get the job done. That frees up storage space in your facility. Just keep a few cleaning supplies on hand for in-between cleaning sessions, and you’re free to use up the rest of the storage space for whatever you need.
At Star Team Cleaning, we bring everything to you, so you don’t have to invest in cleaning equipment or expensive supplies.
Protection Against Theft
When you hire a truly professional cleaning service like Star Team Cleaning, you gain peace of mind that your assets and valuables will be protected. All of our employees are background checked, Wsib and insured.
Not all commercial cleaners can offer this level of trustworthiness and reliability. Fly-by-night cleaners with improper training may not meet your standards, and theft is a very real concern. For this reason, it is crucial to hire a cleaning service that has a reputation for success, professionalism and reliability – like Star Team Cleaning.
Professional Cleaning Company=Advanced Training and Expertise
Having a team of professional cleaners is crucial, but hiring a team with advanced training and expertise is even more important because it ensures efficiency and quality work. When your business reputation and employee well-being are on the line, you don’t want to compromise by choosing an unprofessional, unreliable cleaning service.
Our cleaning professionals undergo advanced training and have the skill to handle any cleaning problem with a high level of professionalism. We provide daily, weekly or monthly services to meet your needs.
A Quality Cleaning
When employees handle cleaning tasks, they must be done during business hours before everyone has left the building. This means that employees and other building occupants will touch or use surfaces that were just cleaned, negating the purpose of cleaning.
Having to clean during business hours also means that:
- Vacuums can’t be used because they produce too much noise
- Trash can’t be emptied completely, which can lead to odors and pest infestations
- Mopping can be challenging and even dangerous
- Bathrooms can’t be disinfected thoroughly, which can lead to unpleasant odors and sanitation issues
When you hire a professional cleaning company, they can come to your place of business at night after everyone has left the building (or early in the morning before you open).
Because the building is empty, your facility receives a more thorough, quality cleaning. Cleaners won’t have to work around employees and other building occupants when trying to clean restrooms, break rooms and other frequently used areas. This improves efficiency, allowing cleaners to get work done more quickly without sacrificing quality.
Lower Maintenance Costs
A clean building is a more efficient building. Yes, professional cleaning services costs money, but in the long run, it can save you money on maintenance costs.
- AC units require regular filter changes
- Ducts require regular cleaning
- Electronics, such as computers require regular dusting
Dust, dirt and debris can clog expensive equipment and electronics, which can be costly to repair. A professional cleaning company can help keep your equipment free of dust, allowing it to run optimally.
Someone has to clean your facility. Why not choose a professional for the job? More importantly, why not hire a team that understands how to clean commercial spaces effectively and efficiently? At Star Team Cleaning, we specialize in commercial cleaning services. We have the skill and experience to tackle any cleaning task with professionalism and efficiency.
