With threats of a recession looming, finding ways to save money is beneficial for all businesses and commercial property owners. One aspect of budget cutting that many may not consider when looking for ways to save is their cleaning costs. You would be surprised what small and minute details can quickly increase expenditures.
If you are a commercial property manager and owner, it’s time to take a deeper look into cost-effective cleaning practices.
RJC wants to help you thrive this coming new year, which is why we are here to share the top two ways you can save money on commercial cleaning.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
The infamous jingle of reduce, reuse, and recycle applies to more than teaching children how to protect our planet. It also applies to building maintenance and care practices.
When it comes to the items you clean and maintain your building with, you need to consider the lifetime of their use. The drastic price difference between single-use vs reusable products can be startling in the long run.
For spray cleaners and disinfecting products, consider purchasing and investing in refillable containers. You can also cut down on restroom supply costs by investing in items like hand dryers or automated paper towel dispensers. The latter will reduce the amount used by each individual who uses your facilities, while the former eliminates the need to purchase paper towels altogether.
Although the upfront costs for high-quality hand dryers may seem unreasonable in the beginning, the long-term cost savings and eco-friendliness make it worthwhile.
Outsource Your Efforts
Maintaining the costs of an in-house cleaning crew can be unmanageable in the current state of affairs. Although it may be sad to let your beloved team go, outsourcing may provide a sensible solution.
When you outsource your cleaning efforts, you only pay for the services you need and nothing more. There is no need to pay a salary or a daily hourly wage. It will also allow you to save money on equipment and products.
A commercial cleaning service will have everything they need to complete the job. You can also count on them to perform more annual tasks such as floor polishing and hygienic cleaning. These tasks can require heavy-duty equipment that has a high price tag and can even be costly to rent. Commercial cleaning companies perform these tasks regularly and have owned and trusted equipment ready at the client’s request for service.
And outsourcing doesn’t mean you have to compromise quality. Building a lasting relationship with a local commercial cleaning company can offer the same quality and benefits as having an in-house janitorial team.
