Janitorial cleaning services are a necessity if you own or operate a healthcare facility, large office suite, or even a local firm. Sunny St. Petersburg has all kinds of offices, clinics, facilities, and suites. Do you ever wonder how they maintain such a clean, professional appearance? It is because the owners realized that they do not have to pay a fortune for those services. Rather, they can simply schedule what they need, specify the kinds of actions rendered, and the best contractors will work with your needs to ensure proper steps are taking to maintain sanitation.
Every Business Is Different — Schedule Only What You Need
It is true that both a several thousand-person office building and a five-person firm both have the need to contract janitorial cleaning services. However, where they differ is in how often they employ those people. How many hours are needed depends on the building and its uses. The best groups often quote you a price based on square footage, products used, and regularity of visit. So, in the example of the small St. Petersburg firm, they would maybe have someone come in once a week for half an hour and change out the bathroom supplies and lightly vacuum. Alternatively, the large corporate office would need a large staff to come in, often daily, to ensure standards of acceptable cleanliness are maintained. Your company is unique and has unique needs, so only schedule what is best for you.
Do Not Waste Manpower; Let the Pros Handle Janitorial Cleaning Services
If you are a smaller business, it may be tempting to skimp on a few things in order to help keep everything within budget. At first, it may appear wasteful to pay for janitorial cleaning services when you have a group of individuals you are already paying who could potentially take care of it. These are your employees though, and their job is better spent on more important things than sanitation. Here are some of the tasks that you can expect from any reputable St. Petersburg contractors:
- Mopping, waxing, and buffing floors
- Washing windows
- Cleaning bathrooms
- Managing bathroom supplies
- Emptying trash
- Sweeping and dusting
When you hired your team, you wanted talented professionals who could help grow your company, not window washers. Not that the task is beneath anyone, but by misappropriating your labor assets, you will wreak havoc on morale. Your productivity will tank, and that will translate into lost sales, poor customer service, or at the very least, reduction in work. Do not squander your talent. Instead, let the professionals handle sanitation.
Dirty Bathrooms Are the First Things Noticed
Whether it is a restaurant or even a gas station at the side of the road, there is one thing that will immediately get under the skin of employees (and more importantly, customers): dirty bathrooms. Florida law mentions that most businesses have to have and maintain a lavatory for public and private use if they are in food service, or host a certain number of people. St. Petersburg sees high volumes of travelers; it even has its own airport. Imagine the embarrassment of losing a potential client or customer because you did not want to pay for the proper janitorial cleaning services.
If a potential client or customer walks in and goes to use the facilities and the soap is out, or the floor is unclean and dirty, they will remember it, regardless of how professional or helpful your employees were. And, more likely than not, the customer or client will translate that to “If they cannot take care of their bathrooms, how will they take care of me?” Do not gamble with the financial future and reputation of your business. Instead, invest in a professional group that is dedicated to proper sanitation practices.
