Many businesses believe that if they wish to save money on contract office cleaning, then the work should be shared among the staff. They also think it can be done whenever they have a spare few minutes. You may even yourself think that this is a good idea. however, when you break down the actual costs of the DIY approach, you will soon discover how much it is truly costing you!
Avoiding Contract Office Cleaning taking it into your Own Hands
A small business with an office would generally consist of a few desks, a washroom, a small kitchen and a reception or entrance area. On the surface, you would think that this does not require too much attention.
In truth, looking at it closely will make you realise how many elements must be cleaned. Desks, chairs, bins, computers, units, carpet, phones, switches, windows, windowsills, lights… And that’s just the office area!
The kitchen has hard-flooring, cabinets, worktops, a fridge, a toaster (which is usually packed with crumbs), and a bin. Don’t forget the washroom either. Your toilet is certainly in need of a regular clean, as well as every other element of the room.
When considering taking office cleaning into your own hands, you will soon realise that a “few minutes” could take up to an hour! Here are some elements you need to think about when considering taking command of your office cleaning.
- How much cleaning equipment will you need to investment?
- Is the equipment you have invested in truly suitable for the job?
- How much will it cost to replace a potentially broken hoover?
- Are the cleaning products you bought suitable?
- Is the equipment colour coded to eliminate cross contamination?
- Do they have COSHH and MSDS sheets?
- How much business time and efficiency will you lose due to cleaning time?
The last one is often one that is not thought about. If your company needs 9-5 hours, how much of that time do you want to lose by having your team stop their usual work to complete a list of cleaning tasks? Though it is important that everyone does their bit to keep the office tidy on a daily basis, do you really want to take hours out of the week to sweep, mop, clean toilets and more?
