Need to find money in the budget, but not sure where it’s going to come from? It turns out that the smart use of janitorial services can save organizations lots of money. Let’s walk through how that works.
As an organization, you have to maintain a certain atmosphere to meet the expectations of your customers, staff, and industry. Within your facility, there’s a floor, everywhere you go. Whether this floor is carpeted, hardwood, commercial tile or high tech anti-static flooring, it has to look presentable. Floors also need maintenance. If a floor is no longer looking presentable, and it’s been poorly maintained, often the most cost-effective solution is to replace the floor.
Replacing the floor definitely impacts the budget. Of course as business owners we all try to plan for everything, which means you have line items for facility related expenses. You know you’re going to have to spend the money, it’s just a question of when.
However, having the right janitorial service changes everything. The first and obvious role of the janitorial service is to keep your facility looking great. If your customers, staff, or industry peers are in your facility and they’re looking at the floor, the janitorial service will make sure they see nothing to complain about.
And there’s more! Regular janitorial service is an essential part of the maintenance routine your facility flooring needs. To prolong the useful life of your facility flooring, janitorial service represents the first positive step you can take. This care is generally done on a daily, weekly, or semi-weekly basis.
Additional services that add life to the years of your flooring: carpet cleaning, floor stripping, waxing, and sealing, and high-static floor care.
The financial benefit of taking care of your flooring becomes clear in case of an unexpected expense – the sort of thing many small businesses experience. The fact that you know your flooring is in good repair and won’t need replacement for many years due to the diligent care provided by your local janitorial service means the funds you earmarked for that purpose can be applied elsewhere.
And flooring represents only one small example. Janitorial care helps extend the useful life of upholstered furniture, office furniture, and many other items you’d probably prefer not to replace until you have to.
