Ways to Budget for Commercial Cleaning Services

Commercial Cleaning

While professional cleaning services might seem like an additional expense, it's a crucial investment that will pay off in the long run, both financially and emotionally. The value of a thorough cleaning job is immeasurable, but we understand that it’s not always an easy decision regarding business finances. However, rest assured that our suggestions for budgeting for our commercial cleaning services will be worth it. We may be biased, but we guarantee that investing in our services will bring peace of mind to you, your employees, and your clientele.

1. Assess Your Actual Cleaning Needs.

We tailor the scope of our cleaning services for your commercial space to factors such as the building's size, the nature of your business, and any unique needs you may have. Consider how often your facility requires daily, weekly, or monthly cleaning, and identify areas that may need more frequent attention, such as restrooms, kitchens, and other high-traffic areas. Additionally, consider specific cleaning needs like carpet cleaning, window washing, and sanitation, which we can cater to.

2. Set a Fixed Cleaning Budget.

If your business has previously used cleaning services, you can use past expenditures as a starting point to establish a budget. While your company's financial situation may have changed since then, this period can still serve as a reference. Research industry standards for cleaning costs to ensure your budget aligns with the size of your space. A typical allocation for cleaning services is around 1-3% of revenue. Rest assured, we are here to work with you and accommodate your budget constraints.

3. Plan for Seasonal Variations.

Supply enough cushion within your budget to account for increased cleaning needs during peak seasons like cold and flu and times of year when there are more events than usual.

4. Optimize Cleaning Schedules.

If you're on a tight budget, you can adjust the frequency of our services based on your actual needs rather than a fixed schedule. However, if your budget allows, we recommend recurring scheduled services to ensure your space is well-maintained. We also encourage your employees to play their part in maintaining cleanliness. If your budget can only accommodate a small amount of cleaning, you can prioritize specific areas for deep cleaning.

5. Consider Long-term Contracts.

We suggest exploring the option of signing long-term contracts with us. Doing so will allow you to benefit from consistent monthly payments, give you greater control over your budget, and reduce the likelihood of unexpected financial burdens.

6. Monitor and Adjust as You Go.

As you likely already do if you’re budgeting, track your spending regularly, especially once cleaning services are involved. Employees also deserve a voice in the conversation, so meet periodically with them for feedback on the cleaning quality of the environment and to determine if anything should change for their comfort and satisfaction.

7. Take Advantage of Tax Deductions.

As a business owner, taking advantage of deducting the cost of cleaning services as a business expense is crucial. Doing so can help lower your tax liability and ultimately contribute to cost savings over time.
