Are you happy with the cleaning standards within your commercial premises? This is a question many business owners should be asking themselves and is something which many have done even more frequently since the Covid-19 pandemic!
If the answer is ‘no’ or ‘not sure’ then it’s time to look at the options to ensure your business gives the right impression to your customers, staff and any other visitors too at all times.
Some managers rely on their employees to keep their workplace clean and tidy but this approach won’t give your premises a thorough clean and deep sanitisation. Although using employees undoubtedly the ‘cheapest’ option, it could end up costing you more in the long term when the standards drop and you need to invest in an expensive deep clean on a frequent basis.
The most efficient and cost-effective solution is to enter into a commercial cleaning contract which guarantees regular cleaning to your own timetable by professionals who know what they are doing. And there are many more reasons why this is such a good option and the team at JDK Cleaning in Swansea have listed the tops ones here.
Benefits of Contract Cleaning
The main benefits of having a commercial cleaning contract in place are as follows:
Compliance and accountability: Professional, commercial cleaning companies offer compliance in areas such as staff vetting and health and safety, offering reassurance through certification and trade accreditations such as CHAS or Safe Contractor. Those who take standards to the highest level will also be members of BICS - the largest independent, professional and educational body within the cleaning industry.
Reporting and tracking: Accurate work schedules along with a tracking system for all cleaning staff should be standard for commercial cleaning companies. They will provide you with a check list of all areas which are to be cleaned and will have a communications log in place so you can see at any time that work has been completed as agreed. Importantly, commercial companies like JDK Cleaning use tracking software called Ezitracker which gives a real-time verified report on the actual hours worked at customers’ sites with actual hours worked accurately matched against contracted hours. These systems provide transparency on the service, leaving no room for misunderstandings.
Professionally trained staff: Employees of commercial cleaning companies undergo robust training which includes the use of chemicals, equipment and consumables as well as health and safety such as manual handling, control of substances hazardous to health (COSHH), PPE and warning signage. Selecting companies that directly employ their staff, rather than using self-employed cleaners, further ensures compliance.
A full range of solutions: Professional, commercial cleaning companies can offer a wide range of sanitising and hygiene solutions. They will have the necessary chemicals and equipment to clean premises across a range of industries. This is important because cleaners don’t use the same products or equipment for an after-build or sparkle clean as they do for an office or surgery clean for example.
Peace of mind: Outsourcing the cleaning of your business premises to a professional company will allow you to focus on your core business with the peace of mind offered by the benefits we have listed here.
Cost planning: by entering into a commercial cleaning contract you will know each month how much you will be spending on this service… so no unexpected surprises or large one-off costs. Many commercial cleaning companies will offer additional services such as a deep clean or a sparkle clean, but these can be added to your contract at the start so again no unexpected costs at a later date.
