One of the most important rules in any and all lines of business is that of avoiding all unnecessary expenses to minimise outgoings. After all, it’s often said that every penny saved is as good as a penny earned, so it simply makes sense to cut expenses as much as possible and never pay a penny for what’s necessary.
This is precisely why so many offices, retailers and businesses in general choose to take care of their own cleaning duties. Having reached the conclusion that it’s unwise to pay others for what can be done manually, they look after cleaning and sanitation duties on a day to day basis with no external involvement. But what most fail to realise is that a quality commercial cleaning service could in fact deliver superior results while saving the business money at the same time.
Professional Cleaners – Better results and lower costs?
It’s true – consider the following:
Zero Equipment Costs
First of all, heavy-duty cleaning equipment and machinery costs a small fortune to say the least and you’ll be needing a fair bit of it if you want to take care of your own cleaning. By contrast, if you bring in the professionals to do the job on your behalf, they will already have all the equipment needed and thus eliminate every single cost associated with buying this kind of gear. And when you also factor in machinery repair and replacement costs, you soon get the picture of how expensive the seemingly cheaper option really is.
No On-going Product Costs
The same also goes for on-going costs as the ultra-premium cleaning products used by cleaning companies are likewise extremely expensive. There will be certain essential supplies that have to be bought on a regular basis and will over time amount to a serious expense – all of which could again be avoided by bringing in the professionals.
Manpower Brought In
Along with the costs of the equipment and the supplies, how about the manpower required to actually go about the cleaning? It’s not like the pros offer their services for free, but at the same time neither will any of your current employees. It’s entirely possible that the going rate of the cleaning service you bring in will be less than that of the in-house team that takes care of things for you. And as mentioned above, the external cleaners will already be kitted out with all the right gear and can guarantee a far superior result.
You never know when and where your needs may change, so it’s good to bring in a team with full scalability and flexibility. Whether you suddenly need a more intensive or entirely less frequent cleaning service, chances are a great cleaning company will be able to adapt to all needs in an instant.
Last but not least, it’s also worth bearing in mind that a professional cleaning company will not only be able to produce superior results, but do so in a much shorter time. The fewer hours they need, the less expensive the cleaning service will be and thus the more you stand to save.
