Why Restaurants in Austin Need Professional Cleaning Services

commercialrestaurantcleaningDuring the last few months we have had quite a few restaurants in the Austin-Metro area reach out to us for a restaurant cleaning service quote. Some have asked us to provide pricing on FOH (front of the house) only and some for both, FHO and BOH. Half of these restaurants are reaching out to us because they are not satisfied with their current service provider. The other half has decided to “test the waters” and switch from going in-house to contracting a company. Why restaurants in Austin need professional cleaning services and not have in-house cleaning?

There are several important reasons why you should hire a restaurant cleaning service provider and not take care of the cleaning in-house. Here are the top 3 reasons why:

  • Employees call in sick: Who will clean the restaurant when one of the employees calls in sick on a busy Saturday night? The rest of the team will pitch in, but it is very unlikely that the cleaning will be done at 100%. By having a janitorial company, you GM avoid these problems. If someone in a cleaning company calls in sick, the janitorial company sends out another crew to cover for the night.
  • Employees going on vacation: Similar to the 1st example, if you employee that handles the cleaning of the restaurant goes on vacation for one week, someone else will need to cover his/her duties.   By having a cleaning company, you do not have to worry about time off.
  • Purchasing expensive equipment: Most kitchen floor needs to be machine scrubbed regularly. We have restaurants that we actually run the auto-scrubber nightly vs. mopping. There is a big difference in how much cleaner a floor and the tile grout is when using an auto-scrubber than when you have someone just mop. By hiring a janitorial company, they will provide the auto-scrubber, chemicals etc. Small, chorded auto-scrubbers start around $2,500.00. Auto-scrubbers that run on battery start at around $4,000.00

If you are running a restaurant and someone calls in sick, keep us in mind. We provide free janitorial quotes and honor the pricing for the next 24 months.
