Everyone knows winter weather is brutal, but it does not excuse facilities from having clean, attractive floors. Ideally, the summer months are the best time to hire a commercial cleaning company to provide professional floor care for your business. Proper floor care goes beyond simply picking a floor covering that looks good, it requires professional maintenance. This article will list four benefits of adding a floor maintenance plan to your janitorial services:
1. Customer Attraction and Revenue Increase
All businesses want to see their revenue increasing. However, prospective clients are put off by the condition of your floors, especially lobby or entry points. Spills or visible markings on floors and carpets or the collection of dirt and discoloration on hard floors can send the wrong message to potential clients. It can be a major deterrent in clients deciding to patronize your business or your competitor’s business. A beautiful, well-maintained floor can contribute to your revenue increase.
2. Healthier Environment
It’s important to think about both your customers and your staff. Your office can affect staff and client’s health either negatively or positively. Vinyl floors that are not kept clean and dry are a slip and fall risk. There are also risks with carpet flooring, carpets are major breeding ground for mold and dust mites. People who suffer from asthma are likely to experience asthmatic onsets when they are in places where carpets are not well maintained. Routine vacuuming and regular professional carpet cleaning will reduce employee sick days, create a healthy work environment, and promote a pleasant customer experience.
3. Extended Life
Daily tasks such as sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping floors are required to keep your office floors neat, clean and safe. However, this alone will not protect your floors from long term wear and tear damage. Hiring a professional to strip and wax hard surface floors and professionally clean carpets is much more cost-effective than the cost of replacement. During the cleaning process, technicians will look for and address issues like cracked and lifting tiles, frayed areas of carpet and discoloration before these issues lead to permanent floor damage.
4. Boost Team Morale
In addition to financial compensation, one of the best ways to boost employee morale is to provide a well-maintained workspace. A clean, well-maintained office often results in a happier employees, and leads to increased work productivity and increased revenue.
