It can be tough to understand how often your workplace really needs to be cleaned; it can be different for every business environment. Some days it may seem like you have to clean so much you can’t get any actual work done. Or you may be so busy that cleaning is the last thing on your mind ” but the space hasn’t gotten any complaints, so it must be fine, right?

If you’re not sure whether your business is getting cleaned regularly, these are some important factors to consider:

4 Questions to Ask to Determine if your Workplace Needs to be Cleaned

  • Do Clients Visit Your Business? If clients or customers visit your space ” like in a retail setting or an office ” you likely need to clean every day. Even if your office staff is doing this daily, you can reap great benefits from hiring a commercial cleaning crew to supplement cleanings. Customers will not return to a business they think is dirty. It gives the impression that the business is not well managed or cared for. The key here is that they are very unlikely to tell you when they think your business is dirty. It’s best to err on the side of caution and clean the space daily.
  • Do You Have In-Office Staff? Even if you don’t have customers regularly visiting your business, if you have in-office staff, you may need to clean daily. Depending on the number of staff and whether they are dedicated to cleaning daily, you may even decide to hire an on-site porter to help keep this spic and span. This helps prevent the spread of germs and bacteria which can be crucial to keep your employees healthy. As we all know, a healthy staff is a happy, productive staff.
  • Do You Process Food or Dietary Products? If your facility processes food or dietary products, by law it requires ongoing cleaning in order to prevent the transfer of germs, bacteria and other pathogens. In certain cases, the byproducts from cleaning can be considered hazardous and need to be disposed of properly. It’s incredibly important to take proper food safety measures when processing or packaging anything that will be ingested. Hiring a commercial cleaning company that knows how to maintain your facility’s cleanliness allows you to focus on making your product instead of just cleaning up.
  • Are You a Manufacturing Facility? Manufacturing facilities are often full of not just the products being created, but the packaging for distributing the products, materials not currently in use, byproducts that are leftover at the end of the manufacturing process, and more. Keeping your facility clean and disposing of these elements properly can help to prevent accidents and workplace injuries. Regular cleanings can also ensure your equipment isn’t inhibited by dust or other production debris that may have been left on the floor or on/near production lines.

Hiring a commercial janitorial service may not be at the top of your list of To Dos. But when it comes to your business, regular and thorough cleanings can help increase your customer retention rate, decrease workplace illness, increase the quality of your products and decrease the potential of accidents occurring on site. How often your business needs to be cleaned depends largely on how you use the space on a daily basis. But knowing that your workplace is being well cleaned by professionals on a regular basis lets you know your business is being safeguarded in more ways than just one.
