Looking to save a few bucks on your cleaning costs?
Here are our top 4 tips on how to optimise your cleaning budget without sacrificing your existing cleaning schedule.
1. Order consumables through your cleaning provider
A lot of businesses order their consumables such as toilet paper, paper towels, soaps and sanitisers through companies like Office Max directly, but you might be surprised to know that your local cleaning provider can often get you a better deal on the same products through their bulk buying power.
Better yet, your cleaning company can most likely offer even more affordable yet just as good consumable products for an even bigger discount.
2. Add in a regular buffing schedule for your newly polished floors
One of the biggest costs in maintaining your hard floors is stripping and re-sealing them, with most companies opting for an annual strip and polish service.
However, if you added a regular buffing service into your cleaning schedule you’ll find that it will extend the life of your floor polish dramatically and you might even get an extra year out of it.
3. Switch up the soap
Believe it or not, simply switching out your regular liquid soap to foam soap can save you a ton in the long-run with most foaming soaps providing triple the number of pumps compared to liquid soap.
4. Reduce the number of bins around the office
Surprisingly, having bins at every desk is a great way to keep the office tidy but by ditching most of them, you can save around $20-50 per desk per year by moving to more centralised bins in the office and it’s not hard to see why.
If you’re not having to replace bin liners three times per week over the course of the 50-52 weeks in the year the savings while small, will soon add up. Especially in larger office environments.
Although seemingly small, by making these four simple changes in your office or business, you’re guaranteed to make substantial savings throughout the year.
