Save money in your cleaning business
There are many highs and lows of being a cleaning business owner. Some costs are expected such as insurance, rent, utilities, and taxes. However, with some surprisingly simple money-saving ideas, you can reduce costs in other areas.
Hire the right employees
Take the time to find the right people for the job. You want loyal, honest people working for you and you want to compensate them accordingly. Let their work dictate how they get paid. If they are hardworking and get the job done right, all the time, they should be compensated appropriately for their good work.
Provide proper training
Provide three types of training: orientation, classroom and on-the-job. Hold regular meetings with employees to cover training, safety topics, and employee feedback. Providing better training that also engages employees will help with employee retention, which dramatically saves on employment costs.
Provide the proper tools for the job
Wide-path vacuums for large hallways and open areas; back-pack vacuums and attachments for detail work; auto-scrubbers for large-area hard floor care. The more productive the equipment, the more productive the employee, which saves money in the long run.
Control supply costs
Use multi-purpose cleaning products such as hydrogen peroxide cleaners that can be diluted for different cleaning tasks and purchase high quality cleaning supplies. Finding cleaning products that have a multi-purpose will allow your employees to get their jobs done quicker and more effectively. A cleaner like Sheila Shine, which is a stainless steel cleaner, not only cleans stainless steel but it also polishes and protects it as well.
Negotiate with your suppliers
If you’ve been increasing sales in your company, see if your janitorial supplier will give you a price break for reaching certain milestones. Saving on paper supplies, for example, for the buildings you clean can put money directly into your bottom line.
Whether you are a struggling new cleaning business or a long tenured business owner, cutting costs makes good financial sense. Basic cost saving ideas don’t necessarily have to be an expensive venture. Like the money saving ideas listed above, some simple improvements can help pay bills and build capital. No matter what your current financial situation is, saving money will allow your cleaning business to continue to grow.
This doesn’t mean that cost saving is cutting corners on giving your customers the best service. This in no way should take away from the work you do or the quality service you give your customers. Let’s face it, cost saving ideas are great but if you aren’t giving the best service possible, your business is not going to last. Use these ideas as a guideline but always put your best foot forward for your customer.
