Business owners do not like to spend money unnecessarily. Unfortunately, the perception of spending money for cleaning is many times viewed as unnecessary. Unlike paying for a product that you then resell at a higher price; cleaning services are viewed as a line item that offers no return for the money spent. It is an outflow of cash that offers no return on the investment.
Now comes the therefore. Therefore, it doesn’t make any difference what service you hire; so, hire the cheapest. It is a necessary evil. Here is what you get with a cheap cleaning service.
- Disgruntled employees, low employee morale
- Sick employees, more sick days
- Higher employee turnover
- Lower business image
- Customer complaints
- Customers who never return
- The need for more frequent facility repairs
