Commercial cleaning may not be the first thing you think of when developing New Year’s resolutions. But the New Year is a great time to take stock of your commercial cleaning program, and take small but important steps to make it better. If you need help thinking strategically about how to put this important relationship to work for your business, here’s a closer look at what you need to know.
Many New Year’s resolutions focus on being healthier. The same spirit can be applied to your cleaning product selections. Work with a commercial cleaning company that offers clients the opportunity to select green cleaning products. Not only are these more environmentally friendly, but they’re potentially less irritating for employees and customers with allergies, respiratory issues, and chemical sensitivities.
Step up your cleaning
If 2015 is a growth year for your business, it’s time to ask yourself if your cleaning reflects your brand. Specifically, do employees, partners, and customers feel that the condition of your facility positively represents your business? If not, it’s time to reevaluate your current cleaning strategies. If your business doesn’t yet employ a commercial cleaning service, now is a great time to find a reputable company that can help you meet your branding and customer experience goals.
Take on germs
The period following the New Year is difficult for illness. Viruses and bacteria alike are more prevalent during this time of year. When illness circulates, customers and clients alike can get sick and have a negative impact on your business. One of the best ways to avoid this is by increasing your cleaning efforts. Aggressively disinfect high-traffic areas of your office or facility. Make antibacterial wipes and antibacterial lotion dispensers widely available for staff and guests to use.
Invest in professional floor care
The quality of your floors says a lot about your business. But it’s important to make sure that your hard floors and your carpets are being professionally cared for by a commercial floor cleaning company. Carpets need to be properly cleaned, or the PH balance that helps them naturally repel dirt and stains can be irreparably damaged. Floors should be professionally buffed and waxed to minimize routine wear and tear.
Your staff is probably already fully committed with the work that they need to do. Your commercial cleaning firm can help with a wide variety of tasks, including day porting, event setup and breakdown, and snow removal. Create a list of routine tasks that your janitorial services company can do, to let your staff focus on their highest value activities.
