If you have yet to hire a janitorial service, or you currently work with a janitorial service but are concerned about the economy and thinking of ways to cut costs, you may be wondering, how important are janitorial services for your business? It’s a valid question, especially since businesses need to save money wherever possible. But the answer may surprise you. In fact, there are many reasons janitorial services are important for your business. Here are just a few.
You only have one chance to make a great first impression, and what is the first thing your customers see? Your building. No matter how amazing your products or services are, if your facility isn’t up to par, your customer will take note. A whopping 92% of customers report that the cleanliness of a facility plays a big role in determining whether they will return again.
Your employees may not always have the time to thoroughly clean your facility, but working with a professional janitorial service like Presidential Service Industries (PSI) allows you to have confidence that your facility will always make a good impression. And that’s good for your bottom line.
Satisfied and Productive Employees
Studies have shown that office cleanliness impacts both the satisfaction and productivity of employees. That’s important because happy employees create a better experience for customers and are also less likely to leave their jobs.
At a time when we are seeing high employee turnover rates throughout the country, it’s especially important to keep your employees satisfied. Janitorial services create a clean, healthy environment for your employees without burdening them with the work themselves. And since it’s estimated to cost up to one third of an employee’s salary to replace them, investing in employee satisfaction is worthwhile.
Your time is valuable, and so is your staff’s. When your employees are required to clean, it pulls them away from other tasks that support your business. Hiring a professional janitorial service saves you and your employees time that could be better spent running your business.
And because many janitorial services offer flexible hours, you can get the cleaning done outside of your workday, too. For example, here at PSI, we work with you to develop a cleaning schedule that works for you. That means we can come in after hours to avoid disruptions during your business day. Or if you prefer, we can be on hand during the day to deal with things like spills, cleaning restrooms, or sanitizing high-touch surfaces.
Maintaining a Safe and Healthy Environment
The last few years have shown us exactly how important it is to maintain a safe and healthy environment. COVID-19 continues to be problematic for businesses, so reducing the likelihood your business will experience an outbreak is essential. But it’s not only COVID-19 businesses need to worry about. Other pathogens, spills, leaks, and more can create an unsafe environment for your employees and customers, and a liability for you.
Professional janitorial services can help. At PSI, we offer COVID-19 cleaning and disinfecting services to ensure your facility is thoroughly disinfected. We can also help you keep your business clean and safe by taking care of spills and leaks, cleaning up after construction, and more. Plus, our business is OSHA certified, and all our employees are thoroughly trained in current best practices and guidelines.
