“I’m going to want you to keep my name anonymous, because I am pretty embarrassed about this whole thing.” Mr. X is very, very into technology, and has poured his heart, mind, and the past three years into his tech startup in the Boston area. Things were going well enough to attract the attention of an angel investor, who, after a few emails and phone calls, made an impromptu visit to Mr. X’s start up.
“She wasn’t in the place ten minutes before I knew the deal was dead on arrival,” he said. And it wasn’t hard to figure out what was wrong. While the technology was impressive, the start up’s workplace environment was not. Filled with left over take out containers, lots of Mountain Dew bottles, trash cans that ‘hadn’t been emptied in a while’, and even some dirty laundry, the space looked more like a teenager’s bedroom than a professional environment.
“If this is how you take care of your things,” the would-be angel investor said, “why should I trust you with my money?”
This was a wake up call for Mr. X. “Maybe that deal didn’t work out,” he said, “but I am going to be ready the next time an investor visits.”
Commercial Cleaning Services: For Start Ups
“We have a production space as well as an administrative space, a small break room and a bathroom,” Mr. X said. “I’ve been asking the guys to pick up after themselves, but obviously that wasn’t working. So I called the Bridgewater commercial cleaning company to see how much it would be to keep this place clean.”
“When I found out how affordable professional cleaners are, I wanted to kick myself for not calling them sooner,” Mr. X said. “I lost literally the first investor to walk into this place because I didn’t spend the money to have someone empty the trash.
First impressions really do matter. Now I have the cleaners coming once a week, so I know I’m ready if another investor decides to pop in. The peace of mind that comes from knowing that is well worth the cost of the cleaners.”
