Safe Business Operations with Outsourced Cleaning Services

Contributed by Cheryl Costello, Regional Sales Executive

A clean and well-maintained facility is essential for any business. Not only is it important for the appearance and image of the business, cleanliness also has deeper and more significant effect on operational efficiency and employee productivity. Although some business owners may not have previously attributed cleanliness as an important factor influencing operational success, the current pandemic has shifted the traditional perceptions.

Running a safe and healthy business now greatly depends on how thoroughly and professionally it is cleaned and maintained on a daily basis. Keeping in mind the essential nature of cleanliness in maintaining a workplace with no health risks, an in-house janitorial team is not only challenging to set up and manage, but it can also be costly.  As a result, there has been a significant growth in the number of businesses hiring professional cleaning and facilities maintenance service providers.

“It’s time that facility decision-makers stop thinking of cleaning as a cost and start thinking of it as the profit center it truly is.” – ISSA (leading trade association for the cleaning industry worldwide)

Business owners have the responsibility to provide a safe and risk-free environment to their employees, customers, and other guests/visitors at the facility. Since an in-house janitorial team can be expensive with the potential risk of inadequate cleaning and sanitizing, professional service providers can better resolve and avoid health and safety hazards without compromising on performance standards and regulatory compliance.

While adhering to expert recommendations and SOPs, Diversified Maintenance creates tailored programs to accommodate all daily and weekly requirements for businesses in a wide range of industries.
