Every facility is going to need to be cleaned from time to time. The only question is: do you hire professional janitorial services, or do you handle cleaning in-house? This decision will be influenced by the size of your facility and how experienced your staff is at cleaning the different parts of your building. Today, we will compare in-house and outsourced janitorial services so you can determine which is a better fit for your business.
In-House Janitorial Services
There are some different benefits and shortcomings to going with in-house janitorial services. Starting with the benefits, you can have a more flexible schedule for cleaning. This is better when you have a business that operates at odd hours, such as a college campus that functions at pretty much all hours. By doing cleaning in-house, you can have your staff ready to clean your building whenever you need cleaning. Also, you’ll feel more secure knowing that the people entering your business are staff members you already know.
Unfortunately, you will need to pay for all of the supplies, and you need to have them available at all times, making the process of buying supplies a constant chore and expense. You also have to train your staff because you don’t hire a company that already has trained staff members.
Outsourced Janitorial Services
Larger businesses and ones that operate during standard hours tend to be the ones that benefit most from outsourcing janitorial services to a third-party company. If you choose to let another company handle cleaning for you, you are granted a few perks.
For starters, your staff can continue to focus on their assigned jobs rather than have to spend time cleaning the building. This lets your business be more efficient. Also, hiring a third-party company means there will be no need to train any staff members because they arrive at your facility fully trained already.
There is one main reason people don’t enjoy hiring third-party companies for janitorial services, and that reason is the initial price of their services. You pay a higher upfront cost when hiring professional janitorial services. Even if you avoid expenses such as paying for cleaning supplies, some companies may not like the idea of paying a fee for regular cleaning services.
