Regular building maintenance helps protect your business and you never get a another chance to make a first impression. This is true when it comes to the appearance of your business as well. A clean and well-maintained business communicates to both customers and employees alike that you are on top of things, you care and are diligent, and are interested in protecting the investment that is your business.
In many businesses, such as ones involving health care, building maintenance and a clean working environment are imperative. Keeping a sanitary space in these cases is not simply about first impressions but rather about keeping the doors of your business open after a hygiene audit or visit from the health department.
It may seem like an unnecessary expenditure for your business, however, you are probably avoiding a much larger cost in the long run, including being liable for an injury, property damage incurred directly due to the lack of maintenance, costly repairs, and even loss of customers and profits due to temporary closings.
In fact, here are 7 reasons why investing in a building maintenance service is good for your business.
You don’t have to employ your own building maintenance and custodial staff
Not having to add employees to your own payroll to keep up with building maintenance and cleanliness can save your business money. Consider the cost of training, specialized equipment (and its maintenance), wages including possible overtime pay, and benefits and the cost of hiring your own employees. It can quickly add up to quite the expense.
Outsourcing a commercial cleaning and building maintenance company not only gives you one point of payment for this expense, it can be much more cost effective.
State of the art technology and skill to clean your business in an effective manner
Commercial cleaning and building maintenance companies keep up with the latest and greatest technologies related to the industry. This, along with a well trained and experienced staff, are what you can expect from a reliable and reputable company. These things will allow for your business to be kept neat, orderly, and well maintained in the most efficient manner possible.
Focus on your business
You started your business because you have a passion for it, not for cleaning and maintenance of the building. Outsourcing these things to a commercial company allows for you to focus on what is important to you: your business and/or managing it. Watch your P&L’s, not the floor drying.
Know everything is up to code and sanitary
Outsourcing your building maintenance and cleaning to a company that specializes in such things insures that your building and the work environment of each of your employees is completely sanitary and up to all applicable codes. No need to keep up with all the new rules, regulations and technologies, such as OSHA and hazardous waste issues managed by the building maintenance company.
A clean working environment for all employees and customers
Having a clean work environment for your employees is not only imperative in keeping your workers healthy and injury free, it is also more inviting and pleasing to the eye. These things do have an effect on your workers as well as your customers. The more inviting the space, the more people will WANT to be there, whether working or spending money.
Boost employee productivity
Employees will be more motivated to work and excel at what they do when they are in an environment that smells and looks good. It doesn’t matter what size or type of work space is involved, if it is cleaned and well maintained, your workers will most likely be more productive, benefiting the greater good of your operation.
Accelerated business operations and longer lasting facilities
Facilities that are consistently maintained will experience failure less often, and will last longer with preventative maintenance. Not only are clean facilities more likely to operate properly, they are more appealing to the customer and assist in boosting the productivity of your workers. Costly emergency repairs, as well as contamination and liability issues are almost always more expensive than the cost of routine maintenance would have been.
