When budgets get tight, and businesses look for ways to save money, they often consider bringing their commercial cleaning service in-house. Although this might seem like a logical choice initially, there are far too many benefits that come from partnering with an external cleaning service. Several of these are listed below.
Save money. An external cleaning service has greater buying power when purchasing equipment, cleaning supplies, and chemicals. Also, by outsourcing, you won’t be responsible for the cost of training, hiring, supervising, and paying taxes on employees providing this service, nor will you incur the legal liability should someone get hurt in the process.
Guarantee quality. At JAN-PRO, franchise owners stand behind their cleaning service with the strongest guarantee in the industry: Any service issues will be responded to within one business day, or you get a complimentary cleaning. As the top commercial cleaner worldwide, you’ll find JAN-PRO franchise owners take quality very seriously.
Offer flexibility and efficiency. An external cleaning company will work around your schedule. JAN-PRO teams can clean your office after hours or on weekends, causing no disruption to you while you perform the important task of running your business. Because this is our area of expertise, we can complete the job more thoroughly and in a fraction of the time it would take an in-house employee to do the same.
Take care of your employees. JAN-PRO’s exclusive EnviroShield® disinfecting system kills 99% of dangerous bacteria, flu viruses and MRSA, making your facility safer and healthier. The EnviroShield® system reaches the areas you can’t see and that would never be covered by a typical cleaning service. Maintaing a clean and orderly work environment helps keep employees healthy, productive, and happy.
Provide expertise. JAN-PRO’s Owner-Certified MedMetrix® program for medical facility cleaning meets the strict requirements of AORN, OSHA, CDC and the Joint Commission. Each franchise owner must undergo an intensive 5-week JAN-PRO brand standards certification program that reinforces OSHA safety requirements and methods of cleaning to improve efficiency and air quality.
Ensure OSHA compliance. Without the use of an external cleaning service, you will be responsible for all training and OSHA compliance related to the cleaning. This not only involves training regarding cleaning techniques and proper use of chemicals and equipment, but also items like the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard and the GHS labeling and safety data sheets.
