Are you currently tossing up between cleaning your workplace’s windows yourself and employing a commercial window cleaner? Whilst you might be tempted to undertake the task yourself (to save some money), there are actually a number of benefits associated with getting a professional cleaner in to do the job for you. Not only do they possess the skills and equipment necessary to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible, they can help in other ways:

    1. Promotes health and hygieneIt goes without saying that a clean workplace promotes a healthy work atmosphere. Your employees will be happier and more inclined to do work if their environment is clean. A dirty environment, on the other hand, is a turn-off to potential clients as well as putting the health of your employees at risk. Those with a history of allergies or asthma, for example, may fall ill as a result of dirt exposure. Can you afford to have your employees out sick all of the time?

  1. Enhances employee productivityYour employees do not need window cleaning added on top of their designated job responsibilities. Having your employees undertake tasks such as this will actually take their focus away from their jobs, thereby making them less productive. Having a commercial cleaner do the job for you will ensure that your employees spend as much time as possible on their designated responsibilities. A clean workplace is also conducive to productivity, as it’s hard to work amongst clutter.
  2. Promotes workplace safety Commercial window cleaners are experienced with jobs of all kinds, including those in high-rise buildings. As well as possessing the necessary equipment for them to reach such heights, they are also well aware of the precautions needed to prevent injury or damage to windows. Your employees will not possess this know-how, which actually increases the likelihood that an accident will occur. In many cases, your insurance will not cover injury or damage caused in this manner.
  3. Creates a good impressionOne of the first things that clients notice about your workplace is its appearance. And appearances really do matter, as it is a reflection of how your business operates – if the space is a mess, it suggests that you are sloppy in all areas of work. Having professionally cleaned windows will project an image of class, sophistication and orderliness, as well as creating a favourable and lasting impression. This goes for both existing and potential clients, as well as potential employees.
  4. Covers proper maintenance For many workplace leases, ensuring that the building or property is well maintained is key in getting your deposit back. A professional cleaner can ensure that your lease requirements are sufficiently met. Because they will regularly come into contact with the windows, a professional will also be able to quickly alert management to the occurrence of damage or any other problems so that they can be fixed immediately. Completing timely repairs can actually save you money down the line.

There are even more benefits that your workplace will receive from employing commercial window cleaners, but we are sure that you will want to discover these for yourself! If you have previously been leaving the cleaning of your windows up to your employees (or have been thinking about doing so), we hope that this article has caused you to reconsider. A professional cleaner is preferable for a number of reasons, namely those outlined above.
