Why your business should use a professional cleaning contractor

Why your business should use a professional cleaning contractor

Contract cleaning is an outsourced service where professional cleaners and specialist equipment are used to thoroughly clean and sanitise a space on a regular basis. This can be particularly beneficial to businesses as the results adhere to strict international standards of cleanliness. Our contract cleaning services have long-lasting results and ensure that your office, restaurant, factory or store are hygienic and in top condition.

Hiring professionals to clean your business space, on a regular basis, is a smart decision to make. If you currently rely on your own employees to keep your business clean, you may be cutting corners and ignoring numerous benefits associated with contract cleaning services. Here are several reasons why you should consider hiring IWESCO for your cleaning and sanitation needs:

1. Save time and money

Most business owners think that they are saving money by not hiring professional cleaners. However, if they rely solely on their employees to clean their work environments, the results will not be as hygienic or as thorough. We use specialised cleaning chemicals and equipment that can remove dirt and bacteria from all surfaces and hard-to-reach spaces.

Using a broom or a mop and water are fine for daily cleaning, but over time dirt and grime will build up. Our equipment and chemicals will ensure long-lasting results that actually save you money in the long run. We can also save you and your employees time by cleaning on a periodic basis that suits you, leaving your employees free to focus on their job.

2. Improve productivity and morale

There is no doubt about the fact that a clean working environment will have a positive effect on productivity and morale. Nobody wants to work in a grimy space with sticky surfaces and stained carpets. An office that is dusty, cluttered and unsanitary will suck the morale out of your workforce and affect their concentration levels.

Allow us to thoroughly clean and sanitise your workplace, arrange the removal of your waste and ensure that your business is spotless and tidy. This will make your employees much happier and feel more valued. By setting high standards of cleanliness, your staff will reflect these standards in their work ethic.

3. Health and safety

Dirt and bacteria inevitably lead to an unhealthy environment. If the cleanliness of a workspace is unsatisfactory, the spread of bacteria may affect the health of your employees. This could result in respiratory illnesses, the spread of flu, aggravated allergies and other infectious conditions. Staff illnesses have a direct cost effect on a business.

Our highly-trained cleaning staff will know exactly where and how to clean any workspace. We can maintain the hygiene of your business and ensure that none of your employees fall ill as a result of the space in which they work. Their health and safety is our top priority. We know what chemicals to use in order to remove mold, stains, grease and pest infestations.

IWESCO makes use of the HACCP system, which stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point. This international system is used for reducing the risk of safety hazards in the industrial sector. It requires that we identify and control all potential hazards (biological, chemical or physical) in our line of work to ensure the safety of employees and clients.

4. Corporate image and professionalism

A clean office, factory or retail store is highly important for your professional image. No clients, customers, investors or guests should be brought into a dirty, foul-smelling workspace. This will directly translate to a lack of care and attention in your business practices and offerings.

First and continued impressions matter. A clean and tidy environment will show your guests that you care about your work and pay attention to detail. It can leave visitors with a positive image of your business. This where contract cleaning services can really benefit your brand image and reputation.

5. Cleaning with environmental standards

IWESCO has ISO 14001 certification for environmental management systems. The ISO 14001 certificate is awarded to companies that set up, maintain and improve upon their environmental policies, such as reducing the impact of their processes on the environment and reducing waste.

The cleaning products we use have minimal impact on the environment and do not have any consequences for human health. We also work on-site to classify waste into streams and make sure that it is sent to the nearest recycling facilities. Our main goals are to help clients achieve zero-waste-to-landfill and minimise their carbon footprint.

6. Tailored cleaning services

As a professional contract cleaning company, IWESCO offers clients the ability to tailor their cleaning schedules, depending on their individual needs. Your business may need daily cleaning and sanitising, or perhaps just once a week will suffice. We offer advice on the best schedules for your business needs and can work around any special requirements that you may have.

Every customer is different. We will conduct a site visit and then outline the best way forward that suits your budget and hygiene requirements. We offer numerous services, such as full-scale sanitation and cleaning, carpet washing, window cleaning, pest control and more. All of these services can be tailored to the expectations of our customers.
