The cleanliness of your working environment is crucial in ensuring your team members can complete their best quality of work. Hygiene and work environment cleanliness have been linked to productivity both in individuals and companies.
Not only does a clean environment promote high spirits and motivation, but it also minimizes the risk of allergies and infections, which can impair an employee’s ability to focus. In the worst-case scenarios, an office where dust has amassed can cause its employees to develop reactions such as migraines, bouts of sneezing, and even cold-like symptoms.
With the recent pandemic, increased effort must be placed in ensuring bacteria and germs are eradicated from potentially problematic areas, the most notorious of which will be your office carpets.
But regular carpet cleaning isn’t just the ethical choice for your office; it can also prove itself the economically-savvy one in the long run. Here’s everything you need to know.
Looking Your Best Will Maximize Customer Loyalty
The majority of office spaces will be required to welcome clients, investors, or other stakeholders in their quarters. However, infrequent these visits, the welcomed party is likely to judge your office based on various factors such as decoration and atmosphere.
Still, cleanliness will most often be a “make-or-break” Element. A dirty office is likely to discourage potential customers, scare off current investors, and disappoint any other stakeholder. Some individuals are likely to notice the minor details, such as carpet stains or shoe marks, and others can have full-fledged allergic reactions to dusty carpets.
In the long run, upsetting stakeholders by inviting them into a dirty environment will likely result in a substantial loss in revenue. Therefore, you may want to prevent a messy carpet fiasco.
Frequent Carpet Maintenance Diminishes Carpet Treatment Costs
Depending on the value, quality, and even age of your carpet, comprehensive treatments (involving the cleansing and conditioning of carpet strands, strand-root cleaning, and the application of anti-staining coats) can be costly.
Therefore, you should avoid investing in the full plethora of services. The best prevention for a costly treatment is frequent minor cleaning.
A professional office cleaning company is likely to charge you significantly less for frequently cleaning your carpet than for occasionally providing a full-fledged treatment, which will improve your bottom-line in the long run.
Frequent Carpet Cleaning Expands The Life-Expectancy Of Your Carpet
Like every other decoration or piece of furniture, an office carpet only lasts as long as its owners are willing to maintain it.
The quality of the maintenance always impacts how long the item in question can live a healthy, aesthetically-pleasing life; the more expert, gentle, and thorough the cleaning, the more likely your office carpet is to maintain its natural sheen and the strength of its strands.
Therefore, professional cleaning will help you delay your carpet replacement and save on interior remodeling costs.
A Professional Office Carpet Cleaning Service Saves Your Company Added Supply Expenses
Carpet cleaning supplies can be costly. From specialized vacuums to safe cleaning equipment and pricey chemicals, your office may have to dish out a substantial payment to equip its cleaning crew to handle your carpet cleaning needs.
However, these costs are generally included in a professional office carpet cleaning service. Carpet cleaning companies usually source equipment at discounted costs through bulk purchases, long-term equipment purchase contracts, and optimal market awareness.
Therefore, they will be able to charge you a minor cost for the supplies they use every time your carpets are cleaned. This will allow you to avoid any form of waste — as supply stocks such as cleaning chemicals can have expiry dates, and safety equipment for chemical use will frequently have to be replaced, at your own cost.
A Professional Carpet Cleaning Company Saves You Cleaning Monitoring Time
Hiring a cleaning company that does not specialize in office carpet cleaning means that you will likely have to monitor their work to ensure it is up to par with your desired standards or that they are not too harsh on your carpets.
Generally, this will either be during office time or a supervisor’s free hours, which they will understandably request to be paid for.
Instead, your office hour time can be used much more productively, and overtime pay can be saved by hiring professionals already versed in office carpet cleaning, who you can trust to provide quality work without any office employee needing to be present.
