Every business and organization wants to make a great impression with new and existing clients. Part of accomplishing this feat is creating and maintaining a space that is representative of your organization — ideally, this space that visually conveys that you are professional, organized, clean, and welcoming. This means that for effective office cleaning, results matter.
Managing or operating a successful organization frequently comes with numerous challenges. However, maintaining a clean and beautiful workspace shouldn’t be one of them. This is where office cleaning services from an experienced green cleaning company can be of use.
A quality full service cleaning company does more than merely wipe down counters and take out the trash. The focus for top-tier cleaning companies is on creating a positive, lasting impression of your organization by helping you maintain a clean, healthy, and safe environment for employees, customers, and every other person who walks through your door.
1. Office Cleaning Helps to Make a Good Impression
Making a good first (and ongoing) impression is imperative when trying to forge a relationship with new clients, partners, vendors, prospective employees, and other stakeholders. If they walk into a space that feels or looks dirty, it will still make a lasting impression — but, it won’t be the kind you’re hoping for. This puts your company’s image — your brand — at stake. After all, who wants to work at or buy from an organization or environment that is unsanitary?
According to an ISSA’s report, “The Value of Clean,” cleanliness was ranked as the top concern for customers when deciding to do business with an establishment. In a survey of 1,000 people, 94% of survey respondents said that they would avoid a business altogether if they had dirty restrooms.
2. Office Cleaning Helps to Increase Customer Satisfaction
Having satisfied customers is a top priority for virtually every business or organization because it can lead to increased revenue (and profits). Studies show that customers across a variety of industries are more likely to bring their repeat business to a place that is clean than one that is dirty.
According to the ISSA report:
“When given the choice, customers would rather do business with companies that are dedicated to a positive image and a clean facility… Studies illustrate that levels of cleanliness are not just important to building occupants and their work productivity, but also factor into customer decision making, which can impact a business’s ability to meet revenue expectations.”
Dirty, soiled, or sticky floors and layers of dust on surfaces convey that your organization does not care enough to clean. If you don’t care enough about your work environment to keep it clean, why should they believe that you care about doing the best work you possibly can for them?
3. Cleaning Services Is in Sync with Your Operations
Although cleaning is necessary for a professional space, many employees and customers don’t want to be inconvenienced by it. Effective cleaning services should align with the flow of your operations to meet the needs of your busy work environment. When employees or customers need to use the restroom during the day, it can be annoying to walk there, only to discover it is closed for cleaning. Or, if your customers need to get to a meeting but can’t reach the elevator because the floors are being cleaned, it can be a significant inconvenience that makes your organization appear disorganized.
When you partner with a professional cleaning services company, you need to find a company that is responsive, provides consistent services, and works to meet your office’s needs and schedule. These companies will handle cleaning tasks in a way that provides a safe and healthy work environment without creating excessive inconvenience for your office.
4. Office Cleaning Helps to Increase Productive Appearance
Another essential “appearance” factor for stakeholders is seeing a bustling work environment where employees are productive and aren’t bogged down by illnesses throughout the year. Having employees work in a dirty and unhealthy environment not only increases absenteeism, but it also can significantly decrease productivity.
As an employer, your organization has a responsibility to provide a safe and healthy environment. When employees are frequently out sick — or, if they show up sick to work and risk infecting others — the resulting absences and “presenteeism” can result in a significant impact to your bottom line. According to a 2016 report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “productivity losses from missed work cost employees $225.8 billion, or $1,685 per employee, per year.”
