Small business owners and managers often do a cost-benefit analysis when looking to hire a third party service provider, such as a janitorial services company. From one perspective, it could be seen as an added cost, perhaps unnecessary; from the other side, the service may provide peace of mind to the manager of the business.
In an article entitled 4 Benefits of Your Business Hiring a Cleaning Service on yahoo.com, contributor, Shelly K., says one of the biggest benefits is that you don’t have to worry. She states:
“If you don’t like to clean or don’t want to clean your office yourself or hire an employee then you have a perfect good reason to hire a cleaning business.”
Shelly K. elaborates further:
“You won’t have to be concerned about personally cleaning your office each week. You don’t have to hassle with cleaning your office each week since the cleaning company will do it all.”
Sounds like a no-brainer, right? The truth is, all companies are different since they value different things. Furthermore, companies may opt to hire a janitorial services company for the simple fact it is not the highest and best use of their time to maintain it in-house. Other companies may not see the value or purpose altogether if they feel it’s not a burden to them or if the cost of hiring a third-party service provider is unbearable.
Companies should do this cost-analysis on an annual basis if they are considering hiring a janitorial service company. Cost savings and peace of mind are good enough reasons to consider hiring a janitorial services provider.
