These days, being green not only implies lessening environmental impact, but saving some green, too! Companies are starting to embrace a new trend in janitorial services with definite cost-saving benefits.
Cleaning during regular business hours saves energy costs of lighting and heating/cooling a business all day and then again at night when a cleaning crew would normally come in. Cleaning during regular business hours also creates a personal relationship between workers and cleaning crew, often creating a more positive and satisfying relationship for both parties. Newer vacuums are even more quiet to accommodate this new trend, about 50-60 decibels.
As with anything, there are a few cons to the new trend. Some cleaning crews are not available during the daytime hours because they have other jobs or children they watch during the day. There is also the risk of less throughout cleaning, as some office workers may wave off the cleaning crew because they don’t want their work to be interrupted.
The benefits can outweigh the set backs, and you have to decide ultimately what is best for your company.
