The benefits of employing a professional contract cleaning company
Our Managing Director Gary Breach shares an insight into the growing number of companies hiring a professional cleaning company.
There are a number of factors which have contributed to this shift, most notably the Covid-19 pandemic which has led to organisations reevaluating their expectations of cleaning and hygiene. This increase in expectations has been seen by both employers and employees to ensure work environments are clean, hygienic, presentable and clutter free. Companies have also found it increasingly challenging to recruit cleaning operatives inhouse since Covid-19 and Brexit. This coupled with the resource required to manage an individual cleaner or team inhouse and deal with any HR matters, makes outsourcing to a cleaning company more attractive and eases any operational burdens.
Companies who manage their cleaning inhouse may feel like they are saving money, but it can cause the company issues. Such as not having an effective cleaning schedule in place, relying on employees and difficulty maintaining high levels of cleanliness. Furthermore, health and safety pose a significant cost to a business, particularly those with ISO certifications. A commercial cleaning company will manage these aspects to ensure the company is compliant in all areas including training, risk assessment and Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH).
