New best practice guide to quality cleaning launched by Julius Rutherfoord
A free guide highlighting practical ways in which investing in quality cleaning can save an organisation money, has been launched by London specialist in cleaning and hygiene, Julius Rutherfoord.
Far too often cleaning tasks are undertaken by poorly paid individuals, without specialist training and support. These cleaning operatives are likely to underperform, leading to a host of complications and indirect costs.
According to the white paper, 'The Value of Clean' by the cleaning trade association, ISSA, shoddy service and neglected maintenance can lead to new carpets needing to be replaced in as little as three years.
"Failure to look after facilities properly is costing businesses dearly," notes Chris Parkes, operations director at Julius Rutherfoord. "By investing a further 10% in your building's cleaning and maintenance, the life of your assets can be extended by up to threefold; saving you money in the long-term, as well as protecting natural resources."
Some of the benefits of using a premium cleaning service, outlined in the guide, include:
Everything lasts longer: You move into a new office or you've just invested in plush new carpets or marble floors. These materials should last for many years, but failure to look after them could mean they barely last as long as the manufacturer's guarantee. Getting it right first time and every time pays dividends in the long run.
Keeps utility bills down: The option of cleaning during daylight hours ensures a fast responsive service and reduces complaints, as staff see the work being done. Daytime cleaning also saves money on your utility bills because it means you only need light and heating during office hours.
Asset and employee protection: When appointing a cleaning contractor, don't just check for professional indemnity insurance, but also ask for fidelity insurance which will protect you against criminal activities. Checking cleaning staff are trained and security vetted are the two best ways to ensure your property receives care and attention.
These are just some of the ways you can benefit financially from a quality cleaning service. To receive a free copy of this guide visit:
