The Cost of Keeping Your Facility Looking Spotless & Feeling Clean

Deciphering the Cost of Keeping Your Facility Spotless: A Comprehensive Guide

Whenever we introduce our janitorial service proposals to potential clients, there's a common tendency: flipping straight to the pricing section. It's a critical moment for facility managers, as understanding the components that influence cleaning costs is key to choosing a service that aligns perfectly with your needs. Here are the primary factors that determine how much maintaining the cleanliness of your building will cost:

  • The Building's Occupancy
  • Nature of Your Business
  • Physical Characteristics of the Building
  • Requested Cleaning Services and Their Frequency
  • Standards for Cleanliness

Labor costs, particularly the number of hours needed to achieve desired cleanliness, dominate your facility's cleaning expenses. Each aforementioned factor plays a vital role in shaping these labor requirements.

  1. Building Occupancy's Impact

The sheer number of individuals utilizing your space is the most significant cost driver. More occupants equate to more messes, translating directly into higher cleaning needs. The comparison between a bustling call center and a sparsely staffed warehouse illustrates this point vividly, with the former inevitably requiring more extensive janitorial efforts.

  1. Business Type's Influence

The nature of your business can drastically affect cleaning needs. Manufacturing plants or medical facilities, for instance, may necessitate more specialized cleaning efforts than a typical office setting, due to inherent dirt accumulation or the need for disinfection.

  1. The Building's Features

The time needed for cleaning can vary greatly based on your building's specifics, such as its size, restroom count, floor types, and overall layout. Older buildings or those with more complex interiors might pose additional challenges, affecting the cleaning regimen's intensity and duration.

  1. Cleaning Service Types and Frequency

While basic janitorial services cover essentials like trash removal, surface cleaning, floor care, and restroom maintenance, the frequency of these tasks can adjust the workload. A medical center, requiring daily floor mopping, contrasts with corporate offices where less frequent cleaning may suffice.

  1. Defining Cleanliness Standards

Perceptions of cleanliness can differ dramatically. It's crucial for facility managers and cleaning teams to align on cleanliness standards since higher expectations could necessitate increased labor. For instance, if a facility manager expects dust-free door frames at all times, this specific requirement must be factored into the labor estimate.

So, What's the Bottom Line?

The cost of cleaning your facility hinges on a combination of factors, primarily centered around labor. These include the volume of traffic through your facility, the nature of your business, your building's layout and condition, the scope and frequency of requested cleaning tasks, and your cleanliness benchmarks.
