As a building owner or a manager, you have a lot on your plate. When you layer that on top of running a business, it becomes clear that anything that can save you time or money is a win. Outsourcing your custodial services is just that – a win-win – because it saves you both time and money. Read on.
Custodial Services Give High-Quality Cleaning
When you outsource this work, you get professionals who have a brand and reputation staked on doing it right. They will have the right training and the right equipment to do the work efficiently and thoroughly – likely much better than it would get done if your regular employees are adding the work to their normal tasks.
Custodial Services Help Improve Employee Morale
More than likely, if your regular employees are doing the cleaning duties, that’s not exactly what they were hired for. Adding these tasks on top of other duties can lead to poor morale, burn-out, and turn-over. Instead, let the professionals handle the cleaning for you.
Cut Insurance Costs
There are liabilities associated with custodial work. If your employees are doing that work, you will need to spend time and money, making sure your insurance covers everything. If instead, you outsource the work, the company you contract with will have the burden of insurance and liability instead of you. That way, it’s one less thing you have to worry about.
Custodial Services Can Save Your Time
Your time is valuable. How much of it do you devote to the janitorial work that could be done by custodial services? Probably more than you think. If you’re hiring, training, and managing dedicated employees for cleaning, that’s a lot of time. Similarly, if regular employees are taking on the task, you’re probably still devoting time to managing and training them (and likely nagging them to get the jobs done). You have better things to focus on.
Roll In Other Maintenance
Companies that provide janitorial services often also provide other maintenance and support services, from plumbing to electrical to security and more. If you’re contracting with a company to do any of these, rolling them all together could potentially save you lots of money.
Outsourcing Custodial Services Can Save You Money
In the end, all of this rolls together into saving you money. Outsourcing the custodial work will also save you money because you’re not paying your employees to do the work. While you are paying for the service, the costs of keeping your own staff on hand are often much greater.
