Janitorial services that occur during the daylight hours, rather than those that take place once your business is closed in the evenings may actually help business owners reduce energy costs and save money in the long run. By keeping the lights off and reducing the amount of heating and cooling needed after hours, businesses can reduce their expenses while maintaining a clean and appealing environment for their customers and staff.
Typically, janitorial service companies will send in their crews after hours to facilities that need to be cleaned and sanitized. All of the cleaning work is done in the evening when there are no customers or staff around. Day cleaning, on the other hand, occurs during regular business hours. With this approach, the majority of cleaning is done during daylight hours.
How does day cleaning save money?
Day cleaning helps businesses dramatically reduce their energy costs. These savings are due to the fact that the property owners can reduce the heating and cooling as well as electricity costs at night. With day cleaning, there is no need to keep your lights on for the nighttime cleaning crew.
Many property owners like the idea that they are able to fully secure their building at night. With night cleaning, there are people in and out of the building, possibly causing a breech in security. With day cleaning, the building can be locked up until morning.
Day cleaning allows for better communication between the property managers and the cleaning staff. If something needs attention, the two groups are able to come together to determine a solution. With the cleaning staff more available, problems that need to be addressed can be taken care of sooner. Cleaning complaints are generally reduced with more communication between tenants of the building and the janitorial staff.
Industry estimates indicate that the cost savings associated with day cleaning can range from 8-15% annually. More and more property managers understand the benefit to day cleaning and are implementing it when able.
