When most business owners think about professional janitorial services they usually think about the benefits of an improved appearance. A commercial building that is disorganized, cluttered, or dirty doesn’t exactly paint the picture of a professional business. A clean appearance is a perfectly valid reason for hiring professional janitorial services for your business. However, there are other benefits that you can get from hiring professionals to perform your janitorial work that you may not have thought about. For example, when you hire professional janitorial services you and your employees can save money on healthcare costs! How is that possible? Let our QJS professionals explain.
Less Office Germs
Janitorial services isn’t just about vacuuming and taking out the trash. Professional janitorial services will disinfect the surfaces in your commercial building thoroughly. Depending on the type of janitorial services you choose this could mean that your entire building is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
Cleaning and disinfecting your building can dramatically help eliminate or reduce the germs that float around your office. Removing these germs will help reduce the risk of your employees getting sick. Which brings us to our next point.
Employees Get Sick Less
When your employees are exposed to bacteria and viruses in the workplace, chances are they will be calling in sick more often. When you eliminate the bacteria and viruses, the lower the chance of them getting sick at work. Germs that can live outside of the human body for hours or days can be completely removed from any of the surfaces in your building.
For example, if Becky is sick and isn’t aware of it yet she may unknowingly leave germs on any surfaces that she touches such as door knobs, countertops, the fax machine. Without a thorough cleaning, those germs have to potential to survive and spread to the next person who touches any of the infected surfaces.
Please note that this doesn’t help with employees spread germs through person to person contact.
Professional janitorial services can keep germs from spreading. What this means for your business is that only one person will fall victim to an illness instead of half the staff. This allows your employees to be more productive and saves you money in the long run.
You Get More Done
Hiring a professional to take care of your janitorial work will give your more free time to get other more important work done. You no longer have to waste precious time ordering supplies, checking on staff to make sure they are cleaning, and you don’t have to perform the tasks yourself. You can save money because you don’t have to hire employees to do these tasks, you don’t have put in for the certifications and chemical safety classes.
Combined with a fresh and clean appearance these benefits can be very appealing for business owners. Consider QJS in the Durham Region for your commercial janitorial services. Our janitorial services are top-notch and one more tool your business can implement on your road to success.
