Why Using a Commercial Cleaning Company Is Worth the Investment

why use a commercial cleaning company

If you’ve simply been relying on your staff to tidy up after themselves and your office is looking a little worse for wear, it might be time you invested in a commercial clean. Particularly during winter, offices are the ideal place for illness and viruses to spread when they’re not kept spotless. Relying on your staff to maintain this level of hygiene just isn’t going to cut it – after all, you hired them to do their job, not be cleaners. 

At Wixted, we provide thorough cleaning services to schools, restaurants, offices, shops, and more. But if you’re not sure whether hiring a commercial cleaning service is worth the investment, here are a few compelling reasons to change your mind. 

A happy workforce 

A clean and well-structured work environment can help to free your employees from distractions and disorganisation. This also means that they can take pride in their workspaces and allow them to feel at home in the office after working remotely for so long. 

No one wants to work in a messy office, but sometimes there just isn’t enough energy or time left at the end of the day to clean down all the surfaces properly, vacuum the carpets, and do the washing up. Outsourcing these tasks to a commercial cleaning service means your staff can focus on their work right up until they leave the office, and when they come back in the morning, their workspace will be ready to go. Not only that, but the toilets and kitchen will be spotless, their desks disinfected, and their carpets free from dust. 

Less sick days 

Did you know that there are more than 10 million bacteria on a typical office desk? That’s 400 times more than is found on the average toilet seat. If that stat hasn’t got you reeling, there’s plenty more like it. 

Without relying on proper cleaning techniques and the best performing products, bacteria, germs, and dust can quickly accumulate. While you might try to tackle these alone, using a commercial cleaner ensures a thorough clean every time. 

Without cleaning desk surfaces, office items, telephones, and keyboards regularly, you could be placing your employees at risk of developing serious illnesses. Staff sick days can have detrimental effects on the overall performance of your business and can be a lot more costly than investing in a commercial cleaning service. 

At Wixted Cleaning, we ensure all our staff are highly skilled and trained in delivering exceptional services at all times. We also run a Client Care Programme to maintain an ongoing dialogue with all clients and cleaners, ensuring that our goals, and yours, are consistently met. 

The best products and techniques 

Cleaning with products you can buy at a supermarket isn’t enough in our eyes, especially when it comes to offices, restaurants, and schools, where hundreds of people are in and out daily. 

Not only that, but a lot of office furniture and furnishings require specialist cleaning or treatments to ensure they are as germ-free as possible. Employing a commercial cleaning to take on these removes the responsibility from your team and is often much more affordable than hiring full or part team cleaners for your workplace. 

At Wixted, we only use the best products. We also always try to use ones that are environmentally friendly, where possible. In addition to this, all of our products are provided with COSHH sheets, and our office cleaning equipment is PAT tested every year. So, if you entrust your commercial cleaning to us, you know you’re getting the best in the business. 

Cost-effective, bespoke, and flexible 

Aside from ensuring that your staff stay fit for work as much as possible, commercial cleaning also has other productivity benefits. At Wixted, we offer our services on a completely flexible basis. We can complete our work inside or outside your working hours, and we never run over our specified time slot. 

To provide you with a unique and bespoke cleaning service that’s tailored to your business’s needs, we always conduct an initial survey. This helps us to evaluate your workspace needs and allows us to outline a plan to minimise COVID-19 transmission. 

We also pride ourselves on our ability to adapt. We know that there may be times in the year when your company requires our services more or less than usual. This flexibility has meant that, since 2002, we have built up a client base of over 80 businesses. Investing in a commercial cleaning company for your business allows you to fit cleaning around when works for you. It means that you can always rely on turning up to a tidy workspace in the morning and know that you’re doing your bit to minimise the spread of germs and viruses. 

A boost in business 

A workspace cleaned professionally gives a much greater impression than one which has not. If you’re searching for potential clients, customers, or employees, presenting a clean and organised environment will always put you in their good books. It gives off a much more professional feel and shows your visitors and employees that you have high standards and close attention to detail. 

Numerous studies show a messy or disorganised workspace can have a serious effect on productivity. For example, scientists at the Princeton University Neuroscience Institute have used fMRI and other approaches to show that our brains like order, and those constant visual reminders of disorganization drain our cognitive resources and reduce our ability to focus. Not only that, but they also found that when participants cleared the clutter from their work environment, they were better able to focus and process information, and their productivity increased. 

Tidy workplaces mean happier staff and a higher rate of productivity – so not only is cleaning good for you, it’s good for business too.
