Put your building in the best hands possible – read on!
In this episode, we delve into the advantages and disadvantages of both in-house cleaners and outsourcing to a professional cleaning company.
Pros of In-House Cleaners
In-house cleaners are often trusted and well-known members of your team. They’re familiar with your building, integrated into your company culture, and their attendance habits are known. If they’re great cleaners, they can bring a lot of value to your company.
Cons of In-House Cleaners
However, there are challenges to consider. The labor market, especially for cleaning positions, can be unpredictable. Scheduling around personal days, sick days, or vacation days can be difficult. When your cleaner is absent, their responsibilities often fall onto the facility manager or other staff members, which can disrupt regular operations.
Pros of Outsourcing to a Professional Cleaning Company
Outsourcing to a professional cleaning company can alleviate many of these challenges. You don’t have to worry about hiring or training, and your coworkers won’t have to chip in when the cleaner is absent. The cleaning company will have protocols and standardizations for cleaning, ensuring a high level of cleanliness and hygiene.
Cons of Outsourcing to a Professional Cleaning Company
While outsourcing can offer many benefits, it’s important to ensure that the cleaning company you choose is reliable, trustworthy, and able to meet your specific needs.
In conclusion, the decision between in-house cleaners and outsourcing depends on your specific situation and needs. If you have a reliable, efficient in-house cleaner, that may be the best option for you. However, if you’re struggling with hiring, training, or covering absences, outsourcing to a professional cleaning company could be a beneficial solution.
