I think it’s fair to say that everyone will be glad to have 2020 behind them. Looking forward, one of the things that will be important to Pembroke area business owners is trying to keep costs under control while recovering from the many challenges 2020 delivered.
With that in mind we’d like to discuss how hiring a Pembroke commercial cleaning service can be a budget-friendly decision, especially when compared to having your current employees trying to do the job.
While it’s important to consider the quality of the cleaning done by a dedicated professional commercial cleaning crew as compared to the work done by resentful employees who are trying to cram this additional duty as well as COVID-prevention protocols on top of their ordinary workload, it does make sense to consider the costs first.
From a cost perspective: in-house employees are paid either their salary or hourly wage for the entire time they are cleaning instead of the task you hired them for. There may be some employees who earn a much higher hourly rate than you would be willing to pay a cleaner. Additionally you are responsible for all of the associated costs of employees, such as workman’s comp, insurance, etc. Add to this the costs of sourcing and maintaining an adequate supply of cleaning equipment and materials. In the age of COVID, this includes everything necessary to clean, sanitize, and disinfect high-contact surfaces, such as door knobs, countertops, protective screens, bathrooms, and more.
These numbers will be different for every business. In order to make an informed decision for your company, you’ll want to have a reasonable estimate of how long it would take your team to clean the facility to an acceptable standard, then multiply that by the associated labor and benefits cost, then multiply that by the number of times per month you want your team to clean the workplace. Add to that the cost of cleaning supplies and equipment you determined. This total should be compared to what it would cost the Pembroke commercial cleaning service to do the job. You may find that it’s more affordable to have the pros do a great job more often than it is to have your team trying to do the job when they have time.
