If you have been in business for a while, you will no doubt have come to understand how important details and presentation are. Given the way in which designers and pitchers alike will be absolute perfectionists when it comes to how they are put across, you need to ensure that your values and beliefs are translated in the space that your business occupies. The fact of the matter is that there is nothing more off putting than a messy office, for both clients and employees, so if you are going to show that you are the strong and well organized business that you would like to be, keeping your office clean is absolutely essential!
If your office is a small one, it does not change the fact that the place needs to be kept in great order. It is proven that employees are much better at working in calm and tidy conditions, so maintaining the cleanliness of the place is pretty essential. If you are wondering how best to go about keeping your place of work clean and tidy, then you may be able to work out a cleaning rota, is the office is particularly small. Of course, your employees will rarely be for this idea, as they are not being paid to clean! In such a case, you will need to look at the office cleaning services in the area, to see which firm suits you and your office.
To start with, ask around the other businesses in the area, as well as anyone that you know nearby who has an office as well. Finding out about the cleaning companies in the area from people who have actually used them is the best form of recommendation you can get really, so it is well worth asking around to see what you can find out before you even start searching on the web. Some companies do not advertise that widely, because it is an expensive thing to do, and you may therefore miss out on a great office cleaning company if you rely only on advertised firms.
Have a look at online reviews to see if there are any glaringly obvious factors involved in your selection process. You will no doubt have seen a couple of quotes on the websites of the companies, but there are always going to be positive, so are pretty useless really! If you have a look at a wide range of companies and a good cross section of reviews, then you will get a decent understanding of the market that you are looking at getting involved with. You wouldn't want to waste time trialling a cleaning company that had been dismissed as terrible by everyone on the internet would you?
Something that can be hard to work out is how often you should be getting the office cleaned. In the event that you have a great many staff who are very active all day, then the footfall likely means that you need to get the place cleaned almost every day. If your team is smaller, and mainly spend their time at their desks, then you may well be able to keep the place looking great whilst only getting the cleaners in three times a week or even less! It is, like everything, down to your own context. However, you don’t want to try to save money on the cleaners, and find that the place looks terrible half the time, and you lose business for it!
