There are so many factors to consider when running a successful business that it would be impossible to ever cover them all. Because of this, some issues, such as repetitive cleaning for your carpet, tile, or upholstery, can get pushed off as less important. However, there are several reasons that getting your business on a commercial cleaning maintenance plan can benefit your long term growth. The most obvious reason to be on a commercial cleaning maintenance plan is keeping your business clean. Appearance is the first thing many customers notice when they enter a business and having stains in the carpet, grout lines, or seats can negatively shape their opinion, regardless of the quality of the actual services performed. Having a clean workspace will show customers and employees alike that you take pride in your business. Most businesses receive much more foot traffic than the average home and, guess what? They get dirtier much faster as well. While all carpeting and upholstery will eventually begin to wear with age, having it regularly cleaned will help prolong its life. Having professional cleaning done every month, or even every few months, removes the buildup of dirt before it gets deep into the fibers of your carpet and upholstery. For further protection, 3M Scotchgard can be applied after the cleaning to help prevent stains. This topical product safely coats the surface of the fabric to help prevent stains and dirt from setting in, making spots much easier to remove. It’s not only dirt that can reside the carpet of your business. Allergens like dust mites and even mold spores will build up over time, causing allergies and promoting illnesses. Professional carpet cleaning removes these allergens and sanitizes the carpet to promote a healthy work environment. After all, a healthy worker is a happy worker (and one that doesn’t miss time!) Scheduling repetitive cleaning can benefit your business in many ways; whether it’s improving company image, prolonging the life of your property, or protecting the health of your employees. Many of our cleaning maintenance customers find that the biggest benefit isn’t any of those. Letting us worry about keeping their office clean means it’s one less thing on their plate. That way, they can focus on what they do best: running their business! If a commercial cleaning maintenance plan is right for your business, contact Modernistic today for more info.
