Do you get your staff to clean their desks on a Friday?

If there’s one thing we’ve learnt from our time in the cleaning business, it is that staff cleans are actually false economy.

Staff cleans may seem economical, but they often affect morale. For one thing, they probably feel they work hard enough, and performing an after-hours office clean just isn’t part of their job description.

Trying to get staff to clean up after work is like asking family members to do more around the house – it often causes resentment and tasks are seldom carried out to a good standard because they are done half-heartedly.

What’s more, they aren’t completed to a professional standard. Professional cleaners undergo training and use specialised equipment, so they know how to get the job done quickly and thoroughly, and with a minimum of disruption.

They probably also won’t break your favourite mug by accident, forget to change the towels in the bathroom or empty the bins.

What’s more, they understand the importance of maintaining good levels of hygiene, and so will take the take to do what’s necessary to remove those unseen problems: germs and bacteria.

So, for the sake of better staff relations and your own peace of mind, throw in the ‘staff clean‘ towel and get in the pro’s.
