Office cleaning is not quite the same thing as cleaning your house. When you’re at home, there’s always the sense of a need to get your house clean, because you have to live there. People at an office don’t take quite the same ownership of the space, so it can be difficult to find someone willing to take on the responsibility of regularly cleaning office spaces themselves.
With these factors in mind, many offices decide the best route is to hire a commercial cleaning service in Phoenix, AZ. There are some companies, however, that resist hiring an outside company, for a wide variety of reasons or excuses. Many of the reasons companies avoid bringing in commercial cleaners are based on misconceptions or falsehoods.
Here are a few of the most common misconceptions about office cleaning. It’s important to have accurate information before you decide whether you will go with an outsourced cleaning service!
MYTH: I can handle all of my office’s cleaning needs myself.
Even owners of very small businesses will find themselves stretched far too thin if they attempt to clean their office space in addition to all of their other everyday tasks. Many owners of medium- to large-sized businesses think they can rely on their employees to handle everyday cleaning tasks, and therefore avoid using commercial cleaning services.
The truth is, however, that you simply cannot rely on employees to regularly take out the trash, clean the microwave and fridge, wipe off counters and clean bathrooms. Not only is it likely not in their job description, but they have plenty of other things to worry about. They do not want to have to spend their personal time doing menial cleaning tasks, and there’s not much you can do to enforce that responsibility without majorly affecting job satisfaction.
Commercial cleaning services are extremely reliable and consistent, and allow your employees to focus on their actual job duties.
MYTH: I don’t need to prioritize office cleaning.
If someone walks into your business, you want to make a good first impression. You will not be able to do this if your office is untidy and unorganized. A clean, well-organized office space is representative of the quality your customers and clients can expect out of your products or services.
Regular cleanings of your office can also have a positive impact on your employees’ health. If you let too much bacteria and muck build up, people are likely to fall ill.
MYTH: I can get by without using commercial cleaning products.
The cleaning products you use around your home are not going to be sufficient for use in the office, simply because they are designed for smaller-scale use. Plus, commercial services have a better idea about which products are safe for large-scale use—many cleaning products on the market can be harmful to you and the environment, and professionals know how to choose ones that are not.
