Outsourcing commercial cleaning is on the rise

Mar 18, 2024 | Public | 0 comments

In the post-pandemic landscape, commercial cleaners are still in the spotlight, with more and more companies outsourcing their cleaning services. Experts expect the commercial cleaning industry to grow to $329.4 billion by 2026, which is a compound growth rate of 4.8 per cent.

Saving time and money is the motivator for many businesses, and it’s a win-win for cleaners and their clients. Outsourcing cleaning services allows companies to save money on equipment, cleaning supplies, and additional personnel, which can be costly. As labour remains scarce in many industries, some businesses are focusing on what they do best to efficiently manage their business, trusting the experts to take care of the cleaning. Outsourcing also allows companies to benefit from the expertise, latest technology, and information related to janitorial services industry, without investing in those efforts themselves.

And, as hygiene remains in the spotlight for employees and business owners, outsourcing commercial cleaning allows businesses to rely on the expertise and experience of outside companies to maintain their standards of cleanliness, sanitation, and safety.  The consistency that comes with outside commercial cleaners often provides peace of mind, along with their professional services.

While building occupancy is still down, it can benefit businesses to create flexible cleaning schedules to accommodate the work-from-home hours that many employees are still practicing. Rather than cleaning the office while employees are on-site, outsourcing cleaning allows companies to have their premises cleaned and sanitized while the building is empty, around the schedules they have created for their staff.

While a clean and sanitized office can limit the spread of germs and increase attendance rates, it can also make employees happier and more productive. Research shows that 70 per cent of employees feel that office hygiene affects their overall job satisfaction. Prioritizing the health and happiness of employees will likely lead to higher retention, less turnover, and saving the cost of re-training employees or lost business.
