First impressions matter a great deal in business, which is one of the reasons why EMJ Cleaning Services encourages business owners to make a clean office one of their top priorities. For Atlanta area businesses that are considering hiring a professional cleaning service, EMJ offers free on-site estimates and competitive rates for daily, weekly and bi-weekly services.
Many factors contribute to a successful business, such as a solid marketing plan, talented employees, hard work, a good location, effective networking, and sound financial management. However, one factor that is often overlooked is a clean workplace. This is something that Eric Cano, owner of Atlanta-based EMJ Cleaning Services, believes should be a top priority for business owners.
“A company might have a great product or offer excellent customer service, but if its office environment is cluttered or its facilities look messy, that can’t help but detract from the business,” notes Cano. “Keeping the workspace clean is extremely important, and that’s true whether a business interacts with customers inside its facilities or even if only the employees see the office area.”
The benefits go far beyond just visual appeal, according to Cano. For starters, a tidy office space:
- Boosts productivity. Numerous studies show the connection between a clean office environment and an increase in productivity. Not only is it easier for employees to focus when their workspaces are neat, a tidy workspace also means less time is wasted trying to locate materials to do the job.
- Improves employee health. Germs can proliferate when the airspace, floors and other surfaces are dirty. Regular cleanings eliminate bacteria and viruses—before they are passed around the office. There will also be fewer issues with mold and mildew buildup and insect and rodent infestations—meaning less exposure to disease-causing organisms.
- Creates a good first impression. A messy office sends the message to employees, customers, vendors and other visitors that the company does not care about the work it does. On the other hand, a neat and tidy office creates a positive first impression and sends the message that the company is professional, efficient, conscientious and concerned about details.
- Reduces stress. No one enjoys being in an unkempt environment—certainly not for an entire workday but not even for a short meeting. A clean office area is a much more comfortable place to work and conduct business.
Of course, even if business owners know a clean office is important, it’s often easier said than done. Small businesses in particular may try to do the cleanup themselves. This may seem like a way to cut costs, Cano says, but “it’s usually not an effective solution. To do the job right, cleaning takes time. If your employees are doing the cleaning, it’s going to take time away from their regular work, or they might not do as thorough of a cleaning job as is needed.” Furthermore, adds Cano, “cleaning isn’t always as easy as people might think. You get the best results when you enlist the services of a professional cleaning company. The pros have the proper products and techniques to do the job right.”
