Will Commercial Cleaning Rule the World???

Updated: Oct 20, 2021

The pandemic made many take cleaning more seriously — both in homes and workplaces — and that trend continues. The mentality shifted, in some part, from cleaning for the sake of appearance to cleaning for health. Cleaning for health has been top of mind for many commercial cleaning companies since before the pandemic. But during the pandemic, clients became more aware of germ neutralization in offices versus simply appearance. This heightened awareness in business leaders and their employees will likely continue for the foreseeable future.

How Commercial Cleaning Will Be More Than Just Covid-19 Preventions

If you don’t know history, you’re doomed to repeat it, and people might fall back into their habits. In the commercial cleaning industry, we need to remind people more about the flu and colds down the line when Covid-19 is in the rearview mirror. Covid-19 may fade away, but seasonal illnesses will surely not. I believe businesses will look to commercial cleaning companies as experts that solve problems in the most painless way possible.

It may not seem substantive, but lessening sick days adds value to a company. Not only will workers be out of work fewer days, but they’ll also be happier because they are healthy. And healthy employees tend to be more productive employees. Companies creating a spotlight on cleaning for health will educate workers on the importance of office cleanliness. As a bonus, they will know that it is for their betterment beyond ridding common areas of nasty germs. A lot of the “behind the scenes” work will come to the forefront as employees and customers will inquire about the steps a business takes to clean their rooms, hallways, lobby and bathrooms, to name a few.

Overcoming Challenges: New Touchpoints For The Industry

Cleanliness is for far more than office spaces. Movie theaters, for example, have needed to stress how often they clean to make customers comfortable to return. Moviegoers in some states and cities are still hesitant. That creates a new obstacle for theaters, which were already hurting in some places. Meticulously cleaning cinemas is the first natural step toward easing people’s fears. In many ways, it’s similar to the aftershock from the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Airlines and airports needed to reassure air travelers that they took all the proper safety precautions before future flights left the runway. The same logic applies to movie theaters, as it does for sporting events, indoor concert venues and restaurants. People need to be confident, or at least reassured about health risks in places where they are spending their time. Article written by Forbes
