Sustainable Cleaning Solutions – How Commercial Cleaning can be Eco-Friendly
June 10, 2024

If you use a commercial space, such as an office, it’s important to keep it clean. The easiest way to do this is by hiring a professional cleaner from a commercial cleaning company. However, they may not be doing the job properly, which leads to frustration for you and your staff.

The Importance of Commercial Cleaning to Prevent Illness

There are a number of reasons why keeping your office or place of work clean is beneficial.

Firstly, and most importantly, regular cleaning prevents the spread of germs and illnesses. Sick days are unavoidable, but if your entire team becomes ill, your business can grind to a halt. Even if it’s a minor illness, you want your team to be at their best when at work, and not feeling under the weather.

By regularly cleaning then disinfecting high frequency touched surfaces, door handles, kettles, taps, and more, germs will be killed off in their millions and any that survive will find it much harder to spread.

All of the cleaning supplies we use are non-toxic to people and the environment, making our service much less harmful and more sustainable. If you’d like to learn more about how commercial cleaning can be sustainable, check out our recent blog.

If you notice a lot of sick staff when it isn’t cold and flu season, your existing cleaning service may not be as thorough as they should be.

How Commercial Cleaning Improves Employee Satisfaction

As a business owner, keeping your team happy is paramount. Employees that have a clean and welcoming place to work are more efficient and are generally more satisfied.

Commuting to an office every day can be stressful. If when you arrive, you’re confronted with stains, dust, and stale air, it’s hard to start work with a smile. Many cleaners cut corners or have cleaning schedules so stretched out that they can only do half a job at a time.

All of our cleaners are genuinely passionate about what they do. When you take pride in your work, you not only enjoy it more, but get it done properly every time. We only hire cleaners who love to clean. It sounds simple, but it makes a big difference.

In an office space, if one person doesn’t want to be there, that feeling can spread faster than germs. This isn’t just limited to your team either. If your regular cleaner(s) are gloomy, it can have an impact on everyone else. Our cleaning pros greet everyone with a smile and become part of the family.

Supplying Consumables for Commercial Spaces

The role of a commercial cleaner isn’t just limited to wiping surfaces and vacuuming floors. They are also in charge of keeping your space stocked up with the relevant consumables.

Nothing is more frustrating than running out of toilet paper or hand soap. If there is a short supply, you’ll soon hear about it from your staff!

This is most often the result of your commercial cleaning provider not ordering enough supplies or not replacing them with new batches when they run low. We ensure that our cleaners have plenty of consumables available and replace them regularly, so no one is ever caught short..

By ordering the right consumables we are also able to help you to reduce your business’ carbon footprint.

Impress Visitors with Quality Cleaning Services

No matter what type of company you operate, first impressions matter. Even if you only have visitors on occasion, if the first thing they see is a sparkling office space, they’ll be impressed before you’ve even shaken hands.

This applies for the hiring process too. If you’re conducting interviews, both you and your prospective hire will be trying to impress. You need the best talent available in order to grow your business; don’t let inferior cleaning lose you the best candidates.

We offer flexible cleaning schedules for all of our commercial clients. This means that, if you have an event coming up, or have someone you need to impress, and want to have a deep clean sooner than scheduled, we will arrange one for you.

Commercial Cleaning for Hybrid Working Spaces

Hybrid working has become a popular option for many businesses across a range of industries. It means that staff have more flexibility regarding where they work and can work from home some days and be in the office for others.

If your office space isn’t being used all the time, you may think it needs cleaning less. In some ways this is true. If the space isn’t being used often it doesn’t get as dirty. However, in offices with a lot of electrical equipment, dust gathers quickly. This means that vacuuming is more important to prevent allergic reactions and keep the air cleaner.

If you offer hybrid working, we can adapt your cleaning schedule to complement it. This means that our cleaners won’t interrupt the workday without sacrificing cleaning time.

What makes us stand out from the crowd is the relationship we develop with our clients. Other commercial cleaning companies simply send in their cleaners whenever suits them, ignoring your specific requirements. If paired with inferior cleaning, you get all of the drawbacks with none of the benefits. 

We meet with you to establish what you need from your cleaning service and build a customised plan that suits you and your business. We also check in every few months to see how things are going and if anything isn’t perfect. Then we make any changes quickly, leaving you to focus on what matters most: running your business.
