The Joys and Perils of Office Cleaning
Here's what most people love about office cleaning – your people come in and work on the first shift (or the second shift or even the third shift, but often during the day) and take their lunch breaks, and do their stuff all day. Then they go home, and sometimes the place looks like a mess. But while everyone is away, a third party swoops in and picks up, and makes the place look neat again.
Here's what people don't like as much about office cleaning – in hiring a firm to do office cleaning, you’re surrendering some pretty significant access to an outside party, and that can be a little scary.
First, if you have any trade secrets in the building, you have to be concerned about unauthorized access. The same goes for HIPAA health information and other types of data that are supposed to be vigilantly guarded under the law.
However, all of this goes double or triple for actual monetary assets. You probably don't have piles of cash lying around, but anywhere there's petty cash or items of value, you have to be concerned that some of those could get up and walk away during the night.
In many cases, you're also setting up your in-house staff to interact with cleaners, and in that case, if there's any overlap in timelines, you can have situations where cleaning companies may get involved in uncomfortable interactions with your staff. That is never fun!
Even if there is no overlap, sometimes people get upset at what's been done overnight or on their off time, if furniture has been moved around improperly, or their personal belongings are moved, altered or missing. Then someone has to sort that all out. It all comes back to being able to trust a third party to come into your hallowed space. That’s harder for some people than it is for others, but it’s always a risk.
