With business premises like hotels, restaurants and shops re-opening across the country and people slowly starting to return to the office to work, now more than ever it is important for guests, customers and employee’s to be reassured that business owners are not cutting corners when it comes to their cleaning regimes.
The visibility of cleaning and housekeeping staff is noticed by people and for the majority is now their number one priority when choosing a hotel to stay in, a restaurant to eat in and returning to work.
If cleaners and housekeeping staff are visible to your visitors this instils confidence meaning they will stay, return and recommend, all of which generates revenue and will help your business to bounce back however many business owners are still worried about the extra cost for cleaning.
A fogging machine can cost between £215 – £900, the price of cleaning chemicals has risen plus if done in-house you have the added cost of training not to mention the time needed to train properly and purchase new supplies. Recent research showed that the average cost for a 250 bedroom hotel could increase by up to £8600 per month if they were to carry out COVID cleaning in-house and purchase all of the equipment needed to ensure that.
With businesses trying to bounce back it would be a cheaper option to outsource to an experienced commercial cleaning company who are fully equipped and trained to ensure COVID compliance and improve cleaning standards. Specialist fogging service and antiviral cleaning can take place for as little as £300 and advice and guidance on best practice is free.
