Adhoc Cleaning – Almost as Good as A Winter Holiday

At this time of year, to be welcomed by a clean, tidy environment can feel almost as good as escaping Melbourne for a sunny getaway. This is true both at home and in the workplace, but the purpose of this article is to focus on a clean workplace. Cleanliness promotes employee’s well-being, performance, and productivity. It helps everyone to be healthy, safe, and effective at work. It also provides a sense of order and calm to anyone, especially clients who may be visiting your workplace.

Even if you or your staff do most of your cleaning yourselves, every now and then it can be worth engaging a professional cleaner, even if it’s on an ad-hoc basis. While not wanting to be critical of your existing cleaning efforts, as professional cleaners we often have the right equipment, chemicals and training to get the job done effectively and to a more superior standard, compared to going it alone.

If you are considering calling in cleaning professionals for an ad-hoc clean, below are some of the things you should consider:


A cleaning company must be certified by trusted and cleaning-related agencies. This will help them to earn your trust and will ensure your company OH&S standards are adhered to. For example, do they have the right certifications to clean windows above a certain height? Do their employees all hold current Working with Children and Police Checks? Make sure you don’t just ask them if they have the correct certifications. Do your checks and balances.  Follow best practices and view the certifications, check they are current and record the relevant information in-case you need to refer to it in the future.

Types of equipment

As mentioned, cleaning service companies should have the proper tools to perform their job. Well, a good cleaning company should have this equipment. Ensure you check their equipment to see if it is up to the task? Is it well maintained? Are they using eco-friendly and safe chemicals?

References from previous clients

Just like for an applicant trying to get any job, a reference check is important for a cleaning company, even if you are only engaging them for an ad-hoc service. Don’t be shy to ask them to provide a list of references that can verify the quality of their services. You can also look at their recommendation letters from previous clients. Do they have testimonials on their website and are they verifiable?

You need to make sure that any contractors you welcome onto your worksite are adequately insured for the safety and security of your people, the company, and its amenities.

Meet the Team
Make sure you know the people that will do the cleaning for you. It is important to know who will manage the account and what the procedure is for replacing people when one isn’t available. Moreover, for security reasons you don’t want people, whom you aren’t familiar with accessing your building, especially after hours.

Relationship Between Clean Office and Staff Morale

Boost Your Staff Morale! Get Your Office Cleaned 

The office can be a person’s home away from home. Your staff spend an inordinately large amount of time in the office. Providing a clean and safe working environment for your employees can do wonders for productivity and employee retention. You want the office always to be an inviting space for them – one where they feel comfortable, almost like they feel “at home.”

Interesting facts and figures

On an average, an individual spends 160-200 hours in an office per month. And in this period, as an employer, you’d want your employees to deliver their best performance and achieve their goals. Having a clean space to work in can help to motivate your employees to focus more on their goals at hand – the last thing you want is for them to feeling dissatisfied in their work environment and feeling like their office space is unhygienic.

Well maintained offices can have various positive effects on your staff and have a domino effect on the working environment, workforce productivity and eventually on the image of the company.

Think about walking into your office knowing you’d have to spend a good 8 hours sitting in it. Would you rather want to walk into a messy workspace that smells like old food or a fresh, clean space with a pleasant odour? Nothing can be nicer than a clean desk waiting for you as you start your day on a positive note. A clean space can give you a clear head and increase your focus, enabling you to achieve your day-to-day goals.

It isn’t only the desk or the floor that needs to stay clean. Research has suggested that computer keyboards and doorknobs contain more germs than an average toilet. Richard Caines said, “A clean environment improves people’s sense of well-being and reduces anxiety.” One of the main reasons for keeping your office clean is the health of your employees.

Sickness and the importance of office cleaning

You know what happens when one person gets sick in the family? One by one everyone else falls sick too! It’s very likely that the same is happening in your office environment where employees are working beside each other and are touching the same doorknobs and other surfaces.  Even if the sick person takes a leave day, germs are bound to stick around, as they may have been contagious even before symptoms showed. So, office cleaning is essential if you want to have more productivity workforce and less sick days.

Your company’s reputation

A clean and safe working environment is one of the main aspects that reflect on your company’s image – you won’t be considered a great place to work if your office space isn’t clean. No one would like to work for a firm that does not offer their employees a clean office environment. A well-maintained office is more likely to attract employees and keep your workforce happy and also impress prospective clients that walk in for a visit or a meeting. Moreover, a happy workforce ensures that they deliver their best to keep the clients and customers happy as well; again, reflecting positively on the company’s image.

A happy workforce is a productive workforce

Whether you’re investing in a cleaning company or doing it yourself, having a well-maintained office is extremely important and can have many advantages in the short term as well as long-term for your company.
