As winter draws in, we will all inevitably be spending more of our time indoors. This means that things will inevitably start to get messier, and that someone will have to pick up the slack. If you run your own business, chances are that you already have some sort of office cleaning measures in place; however, you might not know that daytime office cleaning can help to lower overall cleaning costs and improve cleaning quality.
Daytime office cleaning – Pros and Cons
Daytime office cleaning is the practice of hiring a cleaning staff to clean your building while you are there. Many business owners tend to shy away from this practice, because they view the cleaning staff’s presence as an unwelcome intrusion, and yet there are still many benefits to be had.
For one thing, daytime janitorial cleaning will ensure that what you want cleaned will be cleaned the first time around. Your presence in the office will mean that the cleaning crew can come to you with questions, and that you can go to them with specific concerns.
Another beneficial aspect of daytime cleaning is cleaning cost reduction. If you are running a business, you probably have multiple employees, and for many of them keeping the office cleanly is probably the last thing on their mind. Introducing a daytime cleaning crew to the mix will remind them of the messes they’ve made and will actually encourage them to be cleaner. People naturally feel guilty when someone else is cleaning up their mess, and as your employees notice everything your daytime cleaning crew has to do they will likely clean up their act.
Overtime, this will mean that your daytime cleaning crew will have to come in less and less, and that you will ultimately reduce your office cleaning costs and organizational efficiency.
Once you begin to implement daytime office cleaning, you may find that many of your employees are dissatisfied with your decision. They may complain to you that the daytime cleaning crew makes them feel uncomfortable and that they are intruding into their personal space. There are many ways to respond to such complaints. One way would be to remind your employees that a night time cleaning crew would get to roam the office completely unchecked and would in this respect actually be more of an intrusion. Another important point to hint at – that most employees will figure out on their own – is that if they take the effort to keep their space clean on their own, the daytime cleaners won’t have to enter it. Once again, this reaction will work towards cleaning cost reduction and an overall tidier office.
Remember as well that all of these tips can be utilized at home, especially during the winter time. If you have a messy family, and you want them to start cleaning up after themselves, hire a daytime cleaning crew. You’ll be surprised at how quickly things start to shape up, for what is in the long run only a modest investment.
