Whether you own your own business or are just an office manager, you know the importance of maintaining a clean working space. It’s not just important for guests and clients, but having a clean space can impact the productivity of your own employees as well and may even have an impact on their mental health at work. We can all agree that maintaining a clean office is important, so the question isn’t if you should, but how often you should. We’re here to look at some of the factors that may impact how often you work with a cleaning company to keep your business clean.
Size of Space
Depending on how many employees and square footage you’re working with, you may need to hire a cleaning company at different intervals. A small office that has fewer than ten people may not even need weekly cleaning, provided they’re all fairly clean themselves. On the other hand, once you get up to twenty, thirty employees, it becomes more crucial that you hire a cleaning company for more regular service.
In terms of size, it’s important to think about the spaces that are included in your business space. If you’re working with full kitchens or kitchenettes, breakrooms, or a multitude of shared bathrooms, you may need even more regular cleaning services. It’s vital that you have policies in place and encourage people to take some personal responsibility within the office, but no matter what, things are going to get dirty quickly once you have enough people in a big enough area.
Function of Space
Aside from how many people and how large the space is, it’s important that you think about the actual purpose of the space. If you have regular client meetings, have displays or a studio space where customers may come in, or if you work with contractors who may use dirty equipment in your space, you may need to consider a regular cleaning company coming in.
Lastly, it’s important that you consider your budget. As with any decision a business makes, your budget is going to restrict what you’re able to do, so it’s important to balance the services you need with what you can afford. Just remember not to merely think of a cleaning company as a cost, as it also provides you value and will help keep a space feeling neat, professional, and productive for anyone involved.
