Set your business up for success by hiring a commercial cleaning service. A clean workplace supports happier and healthier employees and provides a professional and welcoming appearance for your patrons. Whether you do business in an office, medical facility, retail store, industrial space, warehouse, gym, or car dealership, cleaning services performed by a professional cleaning company can elevate a good business into a “great business.” Commercial cleaning services generally include a custom scope of daily and weekly cleaning tasks to keep your workplace clean, hygienic, and professional-looking. Services can be performed during regular business hours or after hours so as to not interrupt daily business operations.

Your patrons & business success

A clean facility is a lot more important than what many business owners think. “It’s easy to feel like cleaning is just a necessary cost of doing business, but it actually can be a moneymaker,” said Paul Edmondson, Commercial Director, North America, P&G Professional. “No matter how big or small the business, every experience a customer has at a hotel, restaurant, daycare facility or office affects their perception and inclination to come back,” said Edmondson. ” According to a 2017 study conducted by Ipsos on behalf of P&G Professional, which interviewed more than 1,000 adults in the U.S., the cleanliness of a business is an important factor for 92% of Americans when deciding whether they will become repeat customers or not.

In fact, 91 percent of customers agree that they are more likely to have an overall negative opinion of an independent business if its public spaces (restrooms, waiting rooms, or lobbies) are not clean; 88 percent wonder about the safety of the food being served in a restaurant if the restrooms are not clean; 92 percent agree that they are more likely to recommend a restaurant to friends and family if the restrooms are clean, and 74 percent say they’re more willing to overlook slow service if the business is noticeably clean. Based on these statistics, It’s clear that the cleanliness of a business is very important to customers and can impact your bottom line. According to the study, the areas that most disturbed customers were the following: 

  • 97% – Foul odors 
  • 96% – Dirty restrooms 
  • 94% – Sticky tables and chairs 
  • 92% – Overflowing trashcans 
  • 85% – Messy drink stations in restaurants and theaters. 
  • 82% – Hair on the floor 
  • 77% – Stains on the carpet 
  • 66% – Litter in the parking lot 
  • 53% – Fingerprints on the windows 

Your employees & business success

Providing a clean, hygienic, and safe work environment for your employees is an essential part of any successful business. It can have a significant positive impact on employee health and well-being, job satisfaction and productivity, and reduced work-related absenteeism. First and foremost, a clean workplace helps prevent the spread of illness-causing germs. According to research presented at the American Society for Microbiology’s 54th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC), one germy doorknob can literally infect half your office or facility within hours. 

Using tracer viruses, researchers found that contamination of just a single doorknob or tabletop results in the spread of viruses throughout office buildings, hotels, and health care facilities. Within 2 to 4 hours, the virus could be detected on 40 to 60 percent of workers and visitors in the facilities and commonly touched objects. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that productivity losses linked to absenteeism due to work-related illness and injury cost employers $225.8 billion annually in the United States, or $1,685 per employee. By keeping your place of business clean, you’re supporting your employees’ health and well-being, and fewer workdays lost to preventable illness. 

Research also shows that employees are more appreciative of and less distracted by work environments that are clean and free of clutter. In fact, a clean workplace can result in increased job satisfaction and happiness among employees as well as increased productivity, higher quality work, and stronger workplace culture. Alexander Kjerulf, founder of Woohoo Inc. and the organization’s “chief happiness officer,” says that “happiness is the ultimate productivity booster.” Happy employees, in his view, make better decisions, excel at managing their time, and possess other crucial leadership skills. 

Poor worker engagement is an opportunity for businesses to boost their productivity by investing in their employees’ welfare and workplace happiness – starting with a clean and healthy work environment. According to a Healthy Hand Washing Survey, 89 percent of Americans believe the condition of a workplace restroom is one indicator of how a company values its employees. Regular cleaning of restrooms and other key areas in your business will ensure that hygiene remains at the forefront and won’t go unnoticed by your employees and patrons alike. 

The takeaway

Although the cleanliness of your business is probably not the first thing that comes to mind each day, it happens to be a critical component of running a successful one. A clean workplace will help ensure that your employees are happy, healthy, and productive while also making a good impression on patrons who turn into repeat customers. Set your business up for success by hiring a professional cleaning service to regularly clean every part of your business from the floors, carpets, cubicles, walls, windows, bathrooms, breakroom, reception area, employee lounge, and even outside of the building.
