For businesses, whether big or small, the cleaning and care of the building is extremely important. Not only are there laws in place that dictate the codes and standards to which businesses must be held, but the general satisfaction and productivity of workers and customers both rely on a clean, impressive environment.
A lot of businesses these days take advantage of the benefits of a cleaning crew that performs their duties after hours and on weekends. Why would cleaning at night be more beneficial to a company? There are many reasons why cleaning at times when employees and customers might not be present is a positive choice for a company.
It’s less disruptive. The tasks of a cleaning crew can be loud, intrusive, and unsightly – that’s just part of it. If the cleaning takes place at night, or on weekends, your employees will not be bothered by the loud sounds of industrial-strength vacuums, the constant hum of floor cleaners, or the general banging sounds that can occur from various cleaning tools.
Exposure to toxins
It keeps your employees from unnecessary exposure. Sometimes, cleaning materials contain chemicals that may not be the best things to breathe in at a constant rate. While the cleaners often carry masks of some sort for this purpose, your other employees probably aren’t as prepared. Also, trash collection occurring at night saves your employees from seeing and smelling the unsightly garbage the cleaners will be collecting.
Health & Safety
It keeps your employees safe. Similar to the masks, your cleaning crew will have the protection necessary for all sorts of scenarios that can occur, whereas your employees will not. For instance, when cleaning higher places such as light fixtures or ceiling fans, your cleaning crew will probably wear the sort of protective gear necessary for if something were to fall. Your other employees walking by might not, and therefore could be put at risk. Nighttime cleaning saves them from that risk.
It saves time. If your cleaning crew operated during the day, how would any sanitation get done? You would have to stop the employees from doing their jobs so your cleaners could wipe down keyboards, computer screens, and desks. If the cleaning took place at night, there would be no one present for the cleaners to work around. That would cut their cleaning time down drastically, saving you money while increasing efficiency.
