A facility that is not kept consistently clean is one that risks productivity loss, illness, and general employee discomfort. To ensure your facility is always looking its best for your clients and employees, you might consider turning to a total facility cleaning service provider.
What Is a Total Facility Clean?
Many cleaning services will offer everyday janitorial work like vacuuming or day porter services. These basics, while essential, aren’t going to cut it. From window cleaning to hard floor stripping and waxing, it’s generally better to have a single provider who you can rely on. Why expend additional resources to find a specialty service provider for a specific task when you could have a single point of contact through a provider you already rely on?
Experienced cleaning companies like Kep Klen are able to provide a broad range of services for multiple different facility types. Residential facilities such as apartment complexes have different requirements from those of commercial offices or retail environments
Commercial offices and retail spaces have their own challenges because of the high foot traffic from both employees and customers. It is especially important that a commercial facility be kept clean for productivity reasons. Customers in a retail environment aren’t going to enter a space that isn’t bright and welcoming, and employees are going to be miserable working there if the essentials go by the wayside.
Plus, anyone who has worked in an office where tile grout in the bathrooms begins to get dirty and the carpets are stained will tell you that this is probably a sign of greater problems. From a recruiting perspective, this is a major issue.
Apartments and other commercial residential facilities are unique in that they can be occupied 24 hours a day.This presents two problems for facility managers. First, if an emergency cleanup situation occurs, their provider needs to be ready to address the issue during all hours of the day or night. Second, a cleaning company needs to have the flexibility to work in an active environment. Where janitors in an office facility can get their job done after hours with the benefit of an empty facility, this isn’t the case when people are constantly coming and going. Plus, it’s generally unacceptable for cleaners to be vacuuming into the night.
Warehouses and Industrial Spaces
Industrial workspaces have many of the same requirements as commercial facilities, but with an added emphasis on safety. Professional cleaning experts like those at Kep Klen will make sure they are not in the way of your employees while performing their tasks. Service that’s available 24/7 is also a necessity to ensure productivity and uptime are only minimally interrupted should any emergency situation rear its head. Total facility cleaning and maintenance can mean the difference between meeting a production deadline and disappointing your customers.
Total services include cleaning facility management that extends beyond just replacing toilet paper and vacuuming the carpet.
Whatever type of facility you have, a total facility cleaning solution simply isn’t going to work if it isn’t designed and catered to your specific needs. For instance, before Kep Klen begins sending professional cleaning staff to your facility to get the job done, we will use our consultative approach to ensure full transparency and that we understand why you were in the market for a cleaning company in the first place.
Maybe you just have the basics in mind, or perhaps you are looking for our full suite of service options. Clearly, the needs of a medical office are quite different from your average retail chain. It’s important that your provider’s facility cleaning system takes these differences into account.
What Could Customized Services Do for You?
Generic providers all offer the same things. It’s standard janitorial services all around. Additionally, many services only offer support for one type of facility or building. You would think that this means they are experts in the specific needs of that type of facility, but usually it is simply an indication of lacking expertise.
Conversely, a provider that claims to clean any type of space without taking a custom-tailored approach is likely to disappoint. The common sayings “an inch deep and a mile wide” or “jack of all trades” both apply here.
Kep Klen offers a different solution that combines industry expertise with a consultative approach that lets us get to know your facility and your needs before the cleaning begins. Otherwise, there’s little chance we will develop a true partnership that will last for years to come.
