Unless you’re a cleaning company, your employees didn’t take the job to dust, scrub, and mop. They’re here to help you run your business, so let them do the job you hired them to do and let the pros keep your facilities clean. If you want your business to attract and keep talent, a commercial cleaning service can create a clean and healthy workspace that makes them proud to be a part of the team.
When you invest in having your office or retail space professionally cleaned, you not only see the difference—you can smell it and feel it. Your customers and employees will appreciate the reduced dirt and dust, the decreased amount of germs and bacteria, and the cleaner air. That’s because we tackle dirt and dust, minimize the spread of germs, and remove up to 99.9 percent of airborne pollutants as a part of our healthy approach to commercial cleaning.
A Business Cleaning Service Can Improve Your Bottom Line
Most of us feel and work better in a clean, organized workspace. A clean office creates a great first impression for customers, contributes to employees’ sense of wellbeing, and can even add to your bottom line. Here’s how a commercial cleaning company gives you a ROI that’s good for the entire company.
Commercial Cleaning Companies are Cost-Effective
Hiring an in-house cleaning staff means more overhead, administrative, insurance, and payroll costs. You’ll also have to buy cleaning supplies, tools, and equipment regularly. A commercial cleaning service eliminates those expenditures and gives you a professionally cleaned facility week after week.
Business and Office Cleaning Services Reduce Liability Risks
Reaching, bending, and climbing ladders are part of the deal when you work for commercial cleaners, but they’re not something most of your employees are used to doing regularly. Don’t put your employees (or your business) in jeopardy by allowing inexperienced employees to tackle cleaning jobs that could lead to accidents.
Commercial Cleaning Services Protect Your Assets and Data
From expensive tech equipment to private data, there are a lot of valuable components that make up your business. When you choose a reputable and established commercial cleaning company like The Maids, your assets and data are in safe hands. Each team includes a working supervisor who monitors cleaning and completes a quality check to ensure our services are up to your standards. Besides being covered by liability, crime, and employee accident insurance, our team members are professionally trained, background checked, and bonded.

Professional Commercial Cleaning Services Give You More Time for Business
Commercial cleaners know what to clean and the safest, most effective ways to get the job done. That means you don’t have to create a checklist or schedule for cleaning, or assign tasks, follow up, and otherwise supervise your cleaning team. When you invest in commercial cleaning services, you can kiss those “cleaning parties” and seasonal cleaning marathons goodbye.
A Professionally Cleaned Building Impresses Your Customers
A clean and tidy retail space or business sends a positive message to your customers. It lets them know you care about your facility, employees, and customers enough to have your space professionally cleaned. Sparkling windows, shining floors, and clean carpets make a wonderful first impression!
Your customers expect your business to look and feel clean, but how it smells may be the most important first impression of all. Smell is one of our most powerful senses, and your customers often judge your business by how clean it smells. According to marketing research, smell has a greater impact on purchasing than everything else combined. Simply put, if it smells good, it’s perceived as good.
When you have your business professionally cleaned, you don’t have to worry about dirt and odors that can turn off customers. No more musty carpet, streaky floors, or foul-smelling bathrooms—just a fresh, clean look and smell that creates a better experience for your customers.
Commercial Cleaning Companies Can Help Create a Better Place to Work
A cluttered, dirty work environment is not only unhealthy, it’s also a constant distraction that reduces productivity. And it’s not only the obvious dust, dirt, and odors that should cause concern. Germs, viruses, and bacteria aren’t limited to dingy bathrooms or messy break rooms; they can quickly spread from one area to another. Without professional commercial cleaning services that include disinfecting, your office can look clean but still be a hazardous environment.
For starters, did you know the average keyboard has 400 times the number of bacteria on it than a toilet? Computer keyboards, light switches, doorknobs, drawer handles, and plenty of other frequently touched places can harbor germs and promote their spread. We clean and disinfect these areas, as well as bathrooms, kitchens, break rooms, and other spaces to minimize the amount of germs, bacteria, and viruses in your workplace.
Musty carpet, dingy windows, and dusty air can put a damper on employee morale and customer perception, and contribute to health issues. Fewer germs and viruses mean decreased illnesses and sick days, so your employees experience peace of mind and less downtime. Having your office professionally cleaned also tells your employees and customers you care about your facilities and the people who work and visit there.
There’s an old saying in business: Happy employees mean happy customers. The more your employees like their jobs and the environment they work in, the more likely they are to provide superior customer service. From decreased anxiety to greater productivity, business cleaning services can make your business a better place to work with healthy, cost-effective cleaning solutions.
Commercial Cleaning Services Can Help Increase Productivity
If your office or retail space is dirty, has stained carpets, or doesn’t smell fresh, employees may not feel motivated to do their best. An investment in commercial cleaning is an investment in your employees that could lead to greater productivity. Here’s how:
A Clean Workspace Is a Proven Motivator
A clean office or retail space promotes morale and motivates employees to perform well. Your employees will appreciate working in a pleasant environment and your efforts to keep them safe and healthy. This appreciation can create a positive mindset; employees will feel good about who they work for, the work they do, and where they do it.
Less Clutter and Dirt Lead to Greater Concentration
A dirty, cluttered workplace leads to cluttered minds. It’s difficult for employees to focus on their jobs when they have to dig through clutter and work in a disorganized, dirty space. Help your employees keep their focus and be more productive by providing a tidy place to work. They’ll spend more time getting things done and less time looking for work supplies and worrying about their undesirable environment.
Office Equipment Works Better and Lasts Longer
From copiers to computers, dirt and dust can cause unnecessary wear and tear in essential electronics your employees use daily. Operating office equipment in a dirty office can lead to more repairs, a shortened lifespan, and more downtime.
Besides increased office equipment repairs and purchases, built-up dust can even lead to failed computer hard drives and losing critical data. Your computer hard drives have a “breather hole” with a filter to equalize pressure, but dust and smaller particles can get through and lead to hard drive failure. If the fans on your computers become clogged with dirt and dust, the CPU and hard drive can overheat, leading to damage or even a dead computer. A commercial cleaning company knows all about the dangers of dust for electronics, and they know how to remove it from your workspace.
Employees May Miss Work Less Often
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that productivity losses linked to absenteeism cost employers an average of $1,685 per employee. That’s a big loss in productivity and profit—but you can help cut those costs by using a commercial cleaning company that cleans specifically for health. From airborne pollutants that aggravate asthma and allergies to germs and viruses that spread illness, a clean and healthy office means employees may get sick less often.
We are the only business cleaning service to clean for health exclusively. When you invest in commercial cleaning services from The Maids, you’re investing in your business. We’ll improve the air quality, reduce germs and viruses, and create a better environment for your employees and customers—guaranteed.
