If there is one thing that every single person who walks into your restaurant is going to notice, its the cleanliness. Most people will never see the kitchen, but if they see stains on the carpet in the entryway or dust on the back edge of the table, they are going to make all sorts of negative assumptions. Some might even walk out, assuming that the kitchen where their food is being prepared is equally dirty. One way to handle this is to hire a professional cleaning service for your restaurant. But is it really worth the time and the cost to do so? Let’s find out.
Disadvantages Of Hiring A Cleaning Service
There are three major disadvantages to hiring a cleaning service, so let’s address those first. The major disadvantage is the cost. You have to pay a cleaning service on top of what you are already paying your employees to staff your restaurant. Running a restaurant is a difficult job, and most operate on the thinnest of margins. It can be hard to decide that you need to hire more people to get the work done to your standards, but often it is necessary. The other major disadvantage is the time it takes to clean. You may have to staff your building later to allow the cleaning crew to work, especially if you don’t want them there during operating hours. Finally, some of the strongest cleaners have very strong odors as well. Hiring a cleaning crew might result in lingering cleaning odors (which would be more of an issue in a restaurant than a medical office), but often this is a concern that you can address and correct with the company.
Advantages Of Hiring A Cleaning Service
There are many advantages to hiring a cleaning service, some that directly balance the disadvantages. For instance, while you will have to budget for the cleaning service, often you were already scheduling more hours for existing employees to do the work of cleaning. Because the service hires and trains professionals, they will be able to do a better, more professional cleaning job in less time than your existing employees could. The cleaning service also has access to specialized tools and materials that you likely would never choose to budget for. Most services often offer a flexible schedule so you won’t have to change your operating hours to accommodate them. Finally, if your cleaning is done by an outside company, they bring their supplies – so you don’t have to worry about being cited for improperly storing cleaning chemicals (a very common occurrence in the restaurant industry).
