What are the Financial Benefits of Hiring a Commercial Cleaning Company for my Small Business?
All too often, small businesses fail to acknowledge the financial benefits of hiring a cleaning service. If you’re still thinking, “I can save money by doing it myself,” let’s think about it in terms of opportunity cost. In the world of economics, opportunity cost refers to the careful balance between the value of two options. One option is sacrificed in order to chose another, presumably more advantageous, option. Here’s how this works out in your small business when it comes to cleaning. If you (or even an employee) are cleaning your business, the appearance is that you are not having to “pay” someone else to clean. While this might sound like a cost-efficient option, the opportunity cost is that, in order to clean, you are actually sacrificing precious time that could have been spent elsewhere. The average employee work-week is 40 hours, so it’s safe to say that as the owner or manager, you’re putting in closer to 50 hours (or more). That’s 50 hours you have to invest in your small business. Let’s say you’re efficient and manage to clean your entire business space.
Have you stopped to realize that could be over 10% of your week? How much more revenue or progress could that time investment generate if it were spent on something only you can do? Is it worth the opportunity cost? The answer is an emphatic no! In fact, if you begin to think about it in these terms, you may realize that you are the highest-priced commercial cleaner in the whole city! Sonlight Cleaning Services is committed to working with clients to create a maintenance program that is both specific to your needs and affordable. We provide services, not one-size-fits-all “packages.” This tailor-fit approach means that you can scale your cleaning services as you scale your business!
Are There Other Benefits to Hiring a Commercial Cleaning Company for My Small Business?
If you or one of your valued employees are still using your own “elbow grease” to clean your business, it’s time to look at the intangible benefits of hiring the pros to clean your business. You have a finite amount of creative energy. You and your team members have a finite amount of time. These finite resources should be invested into your business, your family, and your dreams… not in cleaning your toilets or vacuuming your carpets. While that may have been a good use of your time and energy when you were just starting out, have you stopped to consider that you’ve come a long way since you started? Contact Sonlight Cleaning Services to find out how we can lighten your load, leaving you time and energy for doing the things that only you can do!
If you are an entrepreneur with a business space of 5,000 square feet or 1 million square feet, it’s time to utilize a commercial cleaning company that shares your dream to continually improve and innovate.
