5 Ways Commercial Cleaning Can Impact the Bottom Line

Featured Image

The last year and a half has made cleaning absolutely essential, but that doesn’t make janitorial service departments fully immune from budget cuts. To prevent this, environmental service workers need to make their case to key decision makers. They need to spell out the benefits in clear and concise ways, and calculate exactly what impact that all this cleaning is having. 

  1. Limit/stop the spread of viruses and other harmful pathogens. 

Some benefits are rather obvious and easily come to mind. When using a proper cleaning plan, you’ll stop the spread of viruses and pathogens, thereby contributing to the health and safety of your workers and your customers. 

  1. Improved productivity, comfort and wellness

Other benefits are perhaps a bit underappreciated. With a proper cleaning plan, your workers, or the occupants of the building will be happier in their space, more productive, and even less likely to be absent from work. If you knew a surefire way to boost worker morale and keep people working longer and more effectively, wouldn’t that be a no-brainer?

  1. Greater customer satisfaction

Research has shown that customers will make a judgement about a business, and whether or not they’ll return by the cleanliness displayed there; especially the cleanliness of the bathrooms. Keeping everything spotless on a routine basis is one way to make customers feel appreciated and keep them coming back.

  1. Less liability

Improper cleaning practices can open up a business to liability from lawsuits. This is especially a risk in healthcare settings such as hospitals, long-term care facilities, and nursing homes. 

  1. Financial returns

Did you know that a proper floor-care regimen can dramatically extend the life of your carpets and hard floors? And the more square footage involved, the more dramatic the savings. Some estimates have put the savings on floor life alone at $40,000 per year per large location. 

With all of these benefits of using proper cleaning procedures, it’s important to try and calculate and quantify the impact on your organization in particular. Crunch your own numbers. Calculate the benefits for your case in particular. 

One way to do this is to use the ISSA Vaue of Clean® tools. Available to members, the included calculator allows you to run numbers relevant to your organization and customize your cleaning case.
