The Impact Of A Clean Warehouse On Your Business

by Complete Care Maintenance Complete Care Maintenance
‘What does it matter if my warehouse is clean or not- it’s not as if I’m running a resort?’ The short answer to that question is -everything. Everything quite literally depends on whether or not your warehouse is clean. The cleanliness of your warehouse impacts your business in each and every single way and I’d like us to examine just some of the many ways in which cleanliness could mean the difference between having a thriving business and closing down or even bankruptcy.

office cleaning service

Picture this- a group of your employees are stacking boxes full of heavy and very expensive electronics. There is some oil spillage on the floor that is yet to be mopped up because your business does not have cleaning services tailor-made for the warehouse and the janitor who is cleaning the entire office block does not have too much time to ensure the warehouse floor is completely dry- they don’t quite understand how cleaning a warehouse is different from cleaning offices. One of your employees slips as he is carrying some boxes, he, unfortunately, lands on some sharp objects that were supposed to be disposed off but garbage is yet to be picked up for the day and the garbage bin is overflowing. Your employee suffers a highly unfortunate accident which leads to hospitalization and upon release, he decides to sue the company for negligence. He asserts that it was the company’s negligence that led to the accident which caused him to be hospitalized and to endure loss of income during the time he was hospitalized. You also lost some of the expensive electronics in the accident.

On a separate day, another employee spills highly flammable liquid which catches fire as soon as another employee sprays the room to get rid of bad odor. Luckily no one is hurt in the ensuing fire but you lose a lot of stock and the ware house is damaged. Worse, after thorough investigations, the insurance declines to compensate the business because it was a clear case of negligence and now your employees must proof that their actions were not malicious. Both of these are incidences that should simply never happen but which easily could if there is no comprehensive cleaning program in place.
While these are fictitious cases, I hope they give you a glimpse into how important the decision to bring on board a qualified and competent cleaning service is for your warehouse and office cleaning. The right office cleaning service should first and foremost make a visit to the warehouse to ascertain the cleaning requirements before coming up with a comprehensive cleaning plan that is in line with the unique cleaning requirements of your warehouse and office.

The right cleaning company should give you a total peace of mind knowing that your warehouse is a clean, safe and healthy space that is therefore productive.
