One of the most puzzling behaviours of some business owners, CEOs and managers is that they see everything which requires them to spend money as a cost, and thus a negative when that is not the case. Examples include training for staff, upgrading equipment, and the maintenance of equipment. Given the title of this article, we also include carpet cleaning in that too.
The reason that these attitudes to spending money on certain aspects of their business puzzle us is that many of them will help increase profits in the long run. Yes, they may have to be paid for upfront, but when they result in more customers, and increased revenues in the future, then the return on their investment can only be seen as a positive.
To some reading this, it might seem like spending money on having the carpets in your offices professionally cleaned could not be further from any kind of profit-generating activity, but you would be wrong. Ok, it might not be as exciting as investing in new product research or moving to new, modern, and bigger premises, so to convince you that having your carpets professionally cleaned can increase your bottom line, here are, not one, but four ways in which it can do so.
Less Need For Additional Carpet Cleaning
Ever heard the phrase, “Do it once, and do it right”? If so, you should be aware it refers to do doing something using the best tools, equipment, and skills, rather than botching it, or using amateurs. In the case of commercial carpet cleaning, professionals might cost more than amateurs, but, because they clean your carpet to the highest standards it means they need cleaning less often. If amateurs do it on the cheap, carpets will need cleaning regularly, and each clean costs money.
Reduces The Need For Repairs Or Replacements
If you look after anything properly it will need fewer repairs, and its life span will increase. This applies to carpets every bit as much as it does to cars, machinery, and our bodies. So, by having your carpets cleaned only by professional commercial carpet cleaners, it means the fibres and materials of your carpet are being looked after so they last and look great, for longer. This will reduce your costs associated with repairing carpets and replacing them by a huge amount.
Impress Your Visitors
“Dress to impress”, might apply to people, but it can readily be applied to buildings too, and that includes your business premises. Whether it be the reception area, offices, or meeting room, if they are well looked after, then anyone visiting them can only be impressed. Imagine prospective clients meeting with you and the difference in the impression they have of your company if they see a stained, dirty carpet, and one which has been professionally cleaned.
Happier, Healthier Staff
Your business profits are highly influenced by your staff, and the happier and more motivated they are, the harder they will work for you. If their surroundings include a clean carpet, then not only do they take greater pride in their work, but for those who suffer from allergies and or asthma, it is also a healthier environment in which to work. This means less sick days absenteeism meaning less sick pay being payable by the business.
