When you first start a company, you might be in a position where you have to wear several different hats. It can take a while to put together the right team to jettison your company to success. You should also keep in mind that there are some tasks that you shouldn’t do yourself, and, in fact, shouldn’t have any of your employees do. Janitorial services are one of duties that is often outsourced right from the beginning because they require skillsets and equipment that are best left to a professional. Here are a few reasons why you should start with outsourcing your janitorial services or switching over if you’ve been handling them yourself.
- Cost of equipment- Any start-up company has a limited amount of capital to work with, and the vast majority of janitorial equipment isn’t something you can lease, and it can be quite costly to acquire.
- Maintenance of equipment- If the purchase price of the equipment isn’t enough to convince you to outsource your janitorial services, the first few maintenance and repair invoices might do it.
- Storage of equipment & supplies- There is a phrase in the business world about commercial property needing to pay for itself. Each square foot has a cost involved, so you need to use each one wisely. A janitorial closet or room is space that isn’t giving you a return on your investment, so it is expensive to use it in this manner. When you factor in your square foot cost and consider this part of your janitorial costs, you’ll soon realize that outsourcing janitorial services can be more affordable than you might think.
- Labor costs- It isn’t just the hourly wage of your janitorial staff that you’ll need to cover, but also labor expenses, such as workers’ compensation insurance, which can be high for janitorial employees, since they are working with chemicals and heavy equipment.
