12 Sep Certified To Clean: Benefits of Choosing an Accredited Commercial Cleaner
Most of us spend more time at work than we do at home, so it makes sense to put a little thought and planning into keeping it clean. However, there are a range of factors to consider when engaging a commercial cleaning provider in order to ensure the best possible outcome for your business. If you’re paying good money to an outsourced cleaner only to find that the services delivered are subpar, it might be time to consider whether an accredited commercial cleaner would be more appropriate for you. So what’s the difference? As opposed to standard cleaning agencies, an accredited cleaning services provider will have certifications through various governing bodies to substantiate that the processes and practices employed are meeting industry standards at a very minimum.
Regardless of whether you’re currently tackling your cleaning requirements in house or have an external agency handling it for you, let’s take a look at how engaging an accredited commercial cleaner could benefit you, your employees and your business.
Better Health & Safety
The health and safety of your employees is undoubtedly a top priority, especially when you consider that the lack of which could lead to increased sick days and diminished productivity for your business. Although you might have an in-house cleaning schedule, it can be difficult to ensure the health and safety of your office when staff are entrusted with this task. In general, employees will be too preoccupied with regular duties to give the office clean adequate time and care. More than this, lack of knowledge, skill, equipment and even dedication to the task can lead to inferior cleanliness and subsequently, substandard health and safety.
Although germs and bacteria are the primary issues to be addressed during an office clean, untidy environments can also become hazardous to those who are exposed to them, leaving you and your team vulnerable to workplace accidents and injuries.
Long Term Cost Reduction
Whist there are an abundance of commercial cleaning companies within the market, working with an accredited company will always be the best value for money. Many superficial or inexperienced cleaning companies will tend to observable areas of your office whilst omitting less apparent tasks – even if they pose a risk to your health or safety. Consistently, you may find that you’re replacing things such as carpets or furniture far sooner than generally necessary if they’re not adequately cleaned on a regular basis. Office cleaning and maintenance should never be arbitrary which is why a certified cleaner will always be a better option for your business.
Wider Scope of Services
Although it’s common for a commercial cleaner to specialise in a specific area, accredited agencies will generally have a wider scope of services on offer. This is likely due to the fact that certified companies are more dedicated to providing quality services that promote increased satisfaction among clients. When approaching a potential cleaning service provider or reviewing your current one, ask them for a comprehensive list of all services they provide. If the list is basic or limited in capacity, your business could benefit from an accredited service provider.
Higher Quality Services
In order for a commercial cleaner to become certified, rigorous training and testing is required to ensure that all standards for health, safety, service quality and environmental impacts are at very least met. If a company has taken the time, money and effort to get themselves accredited, this is generally a good indicator that they value their business offerings and are committed to producing superior service outcomes for clients.
