Windows allow us to get lost in our thoughts and let our minds wander. Whether it is in a fast-food restaurant or a corporate building, staring outside or merely staying beside a window takes us into a state of reflective solitude. There are a lot that of benefits from having clean windows and this is why it should be at the top of your cleaning checklist.
Overall Health and Safety
Dirt and grime can easily accumulate on your windows in no time. Dirty windows trap in common allergens that could harm employees and even potential customers that come in and out of the building. Allergens can also trigger allergies like asthma and skin rashes which is why you should keep it clean.
Similarly, damaged windows should be addressed immediately by the facility maintenance. Small cracks and broken glasses are dangerous to safety.
Failure to apply such a simple cleaning procedure could cost you more in terms of manpower, money and reputation.
Increase Property Lifespan
Each equipment and physical asset in your business has its own life span, including windows. That life span can quickly deteriorate if you don’t do proper maintenance.
Windows are quite expensive because it is bought by a set and it eats up business hours when doing the repair. If you do the math, replacing only a portion of it will definitely cost you more compared to a weekly or monthly window-cleaning budget.
Clean windows have two major effects that will increase the profitability of your business.
Aside from health issues, your employees have other work-related and non-work-related problems from their day-to-day life. As they enter their offices, everything becomes about work until they’re fed up. And when they don’t turn into a person to relax, they open or turn to a window (probably with cup of coffee). They take that quick break looking out the window and gives them a momentary disconnection from the stressful work atmosphere. The simple act of looking out the window can help employees regain their strength and morale to work and make money for the business.
Customer satisfaction is about exceptional service and attracting new customers involves creating a great first impression. A clean and maintained window gives possible customers the impression that our business is well maintained, profitable and even trustworthy.
The spotless shine glimmers inside and out as customers experience the exceptional service of enthused and motivated employees. Would you want to do business with a business in a rundown building with filthy windows?
Cleaning your windows may sound trivial but it’s benefits to the business are hard to ignore. If you’re too busy to worry about windows, hire a cleaning company that does it best.
