Have you recently opened your first business? Congratulations! There’s a strong entrepreneurial spirit in the Boston area, and it’s encouraging to see new companies getting started.
There’s a lot to learn when you’re starting your own business. Here we’re going to share what you need to know about janitorial services, based on our perspective of forty years experience providing commercial cleaning services in the Boston area.
Every Type of Business Needs Clean Facilities
So much energy goes into getting the doors open that you may not have considered how you’re going to keep them clean. Every type of business needs clean facilities for a number of reasons. The public has high expectations of cleanliness and won’t be happy in a setting they feel is dirty or unhygienic. Employees are entitled to a clean, safe work environment. Equipment and inventory retains value better when kept in a clean environment.
Someone Has to Do the Cleaning: An Employee or A Janitorial Service?
Your business needs to be cleaned. Who is going to clean it? Resist the temptation to say you will do it yourself: you already have more than enough on your plate. The realistic options are either you hire an employee to perform these cleaning tasks or your hire a Boston janitorial service to do so.
The costs of hiring an employee include their wages, benefits, and associated employment costs. This compares to the costs of a janitorial service, which vary based on the frequency and types of cleaning performed. Which option makes sense for your business?
One determining factor in which option is right for your company is how much cleaning you need done. The busy medical office that sees dozens of patients daily will have different needs than the start up where only a few employees gather periodically.
