As a general rule, people do not like clutter. Most of us long for cleanliness. We make our beds (or at least try to) and frown at a sink full of dirty dishes. We purchase organizing tools for everything from our offices and schedule, to our cars. Isn’t it reasonable then that if we enjoy a clean and clutter-free home, we would also enjoy having a clean work space? And, as consumers, don’t we often prefer places of business we visit to be organized and clean?
Not only do people work more efficiently in clean, clutter-free areas, but customers also remember your business “first impression”. With social media and review sites as an overwhelming referring agent, cleanliness has never been more important. If you would like to make your customers feel welcome, and you are wanting the best from your employees, you need to create a clean and inviting workspace.
Small Businesses Benefit from Manassas Commercial Cleaning
The benefits of a business maintained by a professional maintenance company are substantial.
Your employees are less likely to become sick from coming to work. A dirty workspace full or allergens, germs, or even pests, can compromise the health of your employees. By hiring a Manassas commercial cleaning service, you can not only help keep your employees focused and able to effectively do their jobs, but also cut down on absences due to illness.
Making sure the areas your clients will see, such as lobbies and meeting rooms, will impress your customers. If a customer feels “unimpressed,” they are less likely to trust your product or spend their money. An unkempt business can directly lead to a loss of clientele. A clean, nice smelling, clutter-free business or office space will get more customers, and more recommendations/ referrals.
Why Hire a Service to do Your Commercial Cleaning in Manassas?
Keeping your small business clean and fresh is important, but why should you hire a Manassas commercial cleaning service instead of delegating cleaning tasks internally?
First, it is unlikely that your employees can provide the skill needed for specialized cleaning equipment and proper use of cleaning products. A good Manassas commercial cleaning service will have a variety of specialized cleaning products and equipment along with employees that have been trained in the proper use of chemicals and equipment they will be using.
Secondly, having your employees clean wastes time better spent on doing the job you are paying them for, as well as affecting their productivity. Likely the hourly wage you would be paying them for to clean is far more than a Manassas cleaning and maintenance company with properly trained staff who don’t resent doing the job. Saving time saves money, so outsourcing these duties to a cleaning service can actually save you money.
How to Find a Manassas Commercial Cleaning Service
As a small business owner, you are likely watching where every penny goes as you grow your business. If you are going to hire a Manassas commercial cleaning service, you are going to want to make sure you are getting your money’s worth.
Here are a few steps to take in order to find both a great service and value:
Get quotes from several companies. Most will visit the workspace you want to hire them to clean and then give you an estimate for their services. Generally services include basic cleaning such as dusting, cleaning and sanitizing of restrooms, and trash removal. However, you should always request a list of what services they provide, as they do vary company to company. For example, one service may include sweeping and mopping where another may charge extra for the same thing.
Make sure they are insured! If they are not and one of their employees gets injured on your property, you may be held responsible. A lawsuit, even a minor one, can be devastating to a small business owner.
Research. Look deeper into the companies you are considering. How long have they been in business? Do they specialize in a service you are interested in (ie, medical grade cleaning, multiple style floor cleaning)? Check references and reviews – what other business owners have to say after can be your greatest resource when choosing a company.
Read the Contract. Once you have chosen a Manassas commercial cleaning service company, they will present you with a contract. Read the contract to make sure you understand what you and they are both agreeing to. Address any concerns and/or discrepancies in what you were told versus what you are reading. Make sure you understand how you can terminate the contract if you are not happy with the service provided.
Double Check. Make sure the services they provide meet your needs, including being scalable if you anticipate changes. If you are a “green” company, make sure the service you choose is environmentally friendly, or offers an environmentally friendly cleaning service that will work for you.
