Often when a business needs to cut costs, janitorial services are one of the first things to go. When this occurs, companies perform the cleaning duties in-house by either appointing one employee to do the additional tasks, hiring an employee to perform the cleaning or asking everyone in the office to pitch in. Any of these actions can cause problems and added expense.
If current employees are asked to take on cleaning tasks and are not monetarily compensated for the added duties, they typically become frustrated with the extra tasks and perform insufficient cleaning.
Hiring a new employee to cut costs can have the opposite effect and can cost companies more than professional janitorial services. The hourly rate of your employee is typically greater than the hourly rate of our cleaners, and when you add in fully loaded costs like payroll taxes and insurance on top of expensive cleaning equipment and cleaning supplies, the cost will likely equal or exceed the cost of a professional janitorial service.
