When you’re running a business, it can be difficult to pay attention to everything at once. There are so many aspects to a business, from accounting to sales, human resources to cleaning, that it is easy to let some things slide. You likely don’t have time to give your business the white glove treatment every day to find spots that are not being cleaned as well as they should be. So how can you tell if you have ‘trouble’ spots in your business that may not be getting properly cleaned?

4 Ways to Tell your Business Isn’t Clean Enough

  • Employees Stop Using Certain Equipment or Spaces If your employees suddenly stop using a piece of equipment or start avoiding that office in the corner for no obvious reason, it could be because it’s getting neglected. Spaces that are neglected often are avoided because no one really wants to clean the mess in order to be able to use them properly. If no one has the time or inclination to clean an area, it’s likely to fall into disuse. This is an easy, and often unspoken, indication that your business could use a thorough clean.
  • Things Often Feel Sticky or Grimy If more often than not, you’re putting your hand into something you can’t identify during the work day, chances are you’re not the only one. Sure, we all miss a spot here and there on occasion ” we’re not all professionals, after all. This happens in every business and home once in a while. But if it is happening to you on a near daily basis, it’s a sign that the space could use more TLC.
  • You’re Cleaning Certain Spaces and Equipment More Frequently If you find that you’re cleaning certain things more than others, it likely means one of two things. The first is that the things you’re cleaning are experiencing heavier use than others and thus need more cleaning. If these things are key to your business, it’s worthwhile to make sure they’re professionally cleaned. The other is harder to admit but it means that you may be neglecting areas of your business. While they’re being neglected dirt, grime and germs can build up quickly. Identifying which of these situations may apply to you can help you decide what it makes sense to delegate cleaning to a janitorial service.
  • Customers Avoid a Space or Complain If customers are taking the time to complain that an area of your business is dirty, it’s a big red flag. Most customers won’t take the time to complain unless something is really bad. That means that just because no one has said anything, it doesn’t mean that no one has noticed dirt. So if someone takes the time to let you know something is dirty, it’s likely that others have had the same thought and been too polite to say anything. This is one situation where it really pays to listen to your customer feedback ” even if it’s not what you want to hear.

If you still aren’t sure how you can tell where your cleaning trouble spots are, call to schedule a consultation with a professional custodial service. We’re happy to help you strategize which types of cleaning services may make sense for your unique business.
