How “Smart Cleaning” Reduces Janitorial Staffing Costs
If we had rock-star money, most of us would have a professional staff in our homes to provide cleaning and tidying services all day every day… picking up every sock, and constantly shining our mirror and counters. But, obviously, this is simply out of the price range of most individuals.
Similarly, if money was no object, your industrial facility could hire a large, full time janitorial staff to keep every nook and cranny shining and spotless. But for many industrial facilities, this level of janitorial staffing is simply beyond their budget. So how does the savvy plant manager balance costs with cleanliness?
The answer lies in the new janitorial industry concept of “smart cleaning”. This novel approach allows a janitorial staffing company to work within a plant’s sub-optimal janitorial budget, by strategically “picking and choosing” which services are most beneficial to the cleanliness and function of the facility.
How Does Janitorial Smart Cleaning Work?
With Smart Cleaning, your janitorial staffing provider puts together a program that ranks custodial services according to most-necessary and most-beneficial. Then they deliver the services according to “rank” at a frequency that better meets your budget, while still ensuring your facility is well-maintained.
A professional janitorial staffing company like World Class Works can completely analyze your needs and processes, and tailor a customized smart cleaning program for your facility. Here are a few of the many things we look at to reduce your cleaning costs while still offering the janitorial services that are essential.
• What janitorial tasks are you performing that might be unnecessary?
• What janitorial tasks are must haves, regardless of reduced budgets?
• Are there unused or low traffic areas that can get by with less frequent cleaning?
• What areas are highly visible to guests, clients & employees that cannot be cut back?
• Are less expensive products available that offer the same cleaning power?
• Where can our high tech janitorial equipment be leveraged to reduce labor hours?
• Can new processes, like team cleaning, improve efficiency and reduce janitorial staffing times?
Battle Creek Area’s Best Plant Janitorial Staffing
Many janitorial staffing companies (as well as in-house cleaning crews) don’t have the knowledge or capability to refine and optimize their cleaning practices in order to reduce costs.
This is because Smart Cleaning isn’t just about randomly doing less cleaning. Instead, it is deliberately focusing on the most critical janitorial services that have the largest impact on the functioning of your industrial facility. And then prioritizing tasks and implementing processes that target waste and inefficiencies by removing overlap and eliminating unnecessary work.
The professionals at World Class Works have the ability and the knowledge to analyze which services are important or essential, which can be scaled back, and which can be performed more efficiently. This enables us to implement a customized “smart cleaning” program based on the “ins and outs” of your building and your priorities – that also respects your budget!
