Published on January 27, 2022

The pandemic has made many facility managers wonder if hiring a commercial cleaning service is right for their business. Also, staffing problems and supply chain issues have made keeping an in-house janitorial team more difficult than ever before. But committing to outsource janitorial services is at times an involved process. 

You will actually find that outsourcing janitorial services is cost effective in the long-term if you choose the correct facility management company. Here are five benefits of hiring a commercial cleaning service. 

1. Commercial cleaners do the best job 

Facility management companies like City Wide ensure janitorial crews are trained in the best practices and procedures for cleaning your facility. Commercial cleaners are also kept up to date on the latest CDC recommendations for disinfecting a facility after a COVID-19 or flu outbreak. Professional cleaners understand the importance of reading labels and using equipment properly to ensure your facility is cleaned correctly and your employees are kept safe in the workplace. 

Facility management companies perform quality control on all of their contracts. They subject their work to regular inspections to make sure it is done properly and up to the expectations outlined in your service level agreement. It can be difficult to hold in-house janitorial teams to the same standard as commercial cleaners. 

2. Avoid supply chain and labor shortage issues

Recent supply chain issues and labor shortages have made keeping in-house janitorial teams staffed and supplied difficult. One of the benefits of hiring a facility management company is they have buying power that you do not. They can purchase supplies in large quantities and from many different places around the country to help stem the negative effects of supply chain issues. 

City Wide partners with you to make sure your building is cleaned to high standards. We ensure your facility will not deal with labor shortages. 

3. Professional cleaners will improve air quality

Indoor air quality became a concern of most facilities due to the pandemic and a recent general increase in allergies to mold and pollen. Buildings have updated their infrastructure to better serve those with air quality sensitivities as a response.

4. Boosts morale and productivity

One of the major benefits of outsourcing janitorial services is the boost they provide to employee morale and productivity. Today more than ever, employees want to feel safe in work environments. It is important to them that their employer is willing to invest in their health and wellbeing. 

The presence of a professional janitorial crew gives employees peace of mind. It also helps prevent the spread of illnesses such as colds, flu, and COVID-19, which decreases sick days and increases productivity. 

5. Saves you time and money

Hiring and supplying an in-house janitorial team is expensive and time consuming. A facility management company will take this pressure off of managers and your facility‚Äôs bottom line.
