Should Businesses Invest In Professional Cleaning Resources?

Many small to medium-sized businesses employ their own cleaning staff to tend to their business premises, yet often these cleaners are rarely provided with the right tools to do the job. Dirty old mops, hand-held vacuums and a bit of polish on a rag might be good enough for you, but what about your customers, your clients, and your employees?

By providing your staff with professional cleaning equipment you’ll bring a range of benefits to your business, and here are just a few of the most notable.

Costs

Rather than buying your own set of cheap equipment, it makes more sense to hire in the very best top-of-the-range industrial cleaning machines. This will enable your cleaning staff to do the job in half the time, requiring fewer paid hours in the process.

You can also simply hire the machines when you need them, rather than having your equipment gather dust in the cupboard. And furthermore, there’s no need to worry about repairs or maintenance when the machinery is hired. At Clean Sweep we take care of all this for you, providing companies with the very latest in cleaning equipment when you need it.

Safety

Does your cafeteria look like it needs a thorough clean? Then why not hire a steam cleaner and sanitise the whole area? Is your warehouse looking dusty, and are your safety markings covered up with scuff marks? We’ve got scrubber dryers and industrial vacuums ready to solve both of those problems.

Professional cleaning equipment doesn’t just make your workplace look pretty; it can also keep you and your customers safe from trips, slips and hygiene issues.

Professionalism

Whether you run a small butcher’s shop or a large auto-repair centre, your customers will ultimately judge your business on how it looks before they engage in a single transaction with you. Keeping your lobbies buffed, your carpets stain-free and your lavatories fresh goes a long way towards building trust in you as a brand.

And by keeping your business neat and professional looking, you will also ensure that customers treat your premises with respect, and avoiding unnecessary wear and tear in the process.

Productivity

It is a known fact that workers who enjoy a clean and tidy workspace are much more productive than those who are forced to work in a messy environment. The build-up of dust, dirt and grime not only causes sick days from allergies and germs, they also have a negative impact on the mentality of healthy workers too.

When your employees see their workspace has been professionally cleaned they’ll know you are serious about maintaining their comfort, and in turn they’ll respond with a much stronger work ethic.

Environment

Older models of cleaning equipment are often extremely inefficient in terms of the energy they use, the water they require for a single cleaning pass, and also the materials used to construct them. However, by hiring the very latest professional cleaning machinery you’ll ensure lower energy bills and a higher green rating for your business.
