Is Your Business on a Tight Budget? Hire a Cleaning Company!

Is Your Business on a Tight Budget? Hire a Cleaning Company! During the last 5 years a lot of companies have considered outsourcing its cleaning staff.  Instead of having employees with paid vacation, full-time status and health benefits, the idea of outsourcing seemed one too good not to consider.

There are a lot of Pros to benefit from when outsourcing:

  • Reduce your Health Insurance and Worker’s Compensation Expenses: By outsourcing your cleaning needs to a janitorial company, you will no longer need to offer health insurance.
  • What happens when your employee housekeeper gets sick or goes on vacation? Who cleans your facility? By hiring a cleaning company, you will have cleaning services 365 days of the year. A good cleaning company will have a back-up to the assigned housekeeper assigned to your facility. In the event the main housekeeper gets sick or goes on vacation, the cleaning company will send in a substitute at no additional charge!
  • Free training on cleaning: When was the last time you trained your on-site housekeeper on how to properly clean? It is very important to have a trained housekeeper. Someone lacking training may mop your VCT floors using bleach and after a few days of mopping, your vct will no longer have the wax protection over it. Has your housekeeper ever mopped a floor and “forgotten” to put a “Wet Floor” sign?
  • Having a Customized Cleaning Schedule: Consider hiring a cleaning company that is willing to customize the cleaning schedule in such way that will save you money. Example: Instead of cleaning the facilities 5 times a week, ask them to clean on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only. Once you get a price quote for cleaning 3 times a week, ask them that you you’re your employee desks dusted just once a week. This will result in another discount!  It is very important to clean the restrooms daily or as often as possible.
  • Does your HR department have time to balance the turnover of your cleaning staff? Normally, housekeepers tend to move from one job to another one approx. once a year. By having a cleaning company in charge of your cleaning services, they will find a replacement without taking any of your HR’s valuable time.
  • Lower your cleaning expenses by asking your employees to be in charge of dusting their own desks. If you have a lot of offices, save the housekeepers some time when collecting trash by asking the employees to place their trashcans right next to their door. Simple things like moving the trash cans next to the doors can cut the cleaning in half
