Details matter in most things in life. Take a birthday cake, for example. You’re standing at the store, trying to decide which to buy. One is a plain white cake with the words “Happy Birthday” written on it. It looks good, and it says what you need it to say. Next to it, however, is another white birthday cake. It says “Happy Birthday” on it. However, this one is also decorated with a Tyrannosaurus Rex, features a plastic dinosaur toy, and has figurative icing decorations all around the edges. Which cake do you think an 8-year-old boy would choose?
In commercial cleaning, the details matter just as much as they do in a birthday cake (they just don’t taste as good). Happy Employees Cleaning in West Fargo ensure your commercial space or office is a pleasant environment to work in and makes a great first impression with customers. We ensure this by doing a thorough commercial cleaning job, including the details, or your cleaning is free. In this blog post, we’ll review how the details of a cleaning job affect people’s perceptions and how a professional cleaning service can help. Contact us today to learn more!
HOW CLEANING THE CRACKS AND CREVICES MATTER
When you hire a professional cleaning service, you are hiring a cleaning company to clean your entire space. If a room is forgotten, the fridge and microwave are not wiped down, or the hand soap is not replaced, you didn’t get your money’s worth no matter how the rest of the cleaning service went. If customers notice these details, the fallout is even worse.
If a professional cleaning service cleans your warehouse, much more is involved than in an office space. In a warehouse cleaning job, safety can be an issue if things aren’t properly cleaned. Take dust for example. While dust build up may not affect how the fridge works, dust build up on warehouse equipment can affect how the equipment operates that can affect employees who operate the equipment. Furthermore, broken pallets, overflowing trash bins, and messy aisles can be major safety concerns. A professional cleaning company such as Happy Employees Cleaning in West Fargo will work with you to determine exactly what to clean up in your commercial space, and we’ll be happy to do so.
A clean commercial space increases employee morale and productivity. For example, if an employee has to stop to replace toilet paper or wipe down a missed surface that the commercial cleaning company was responsible for, this affects productivity and ultimately morale since, let’s face it, no one likes to clean. Waking up on in the morning, shuffling the kids off to school, and stepping foot in your office can be challenging, especially if your kids have the sniffles, the new puppy has to go to the bathroom three times in the middle of the night, and you want to squeeze in a morning workout. Clean matters for that first step to immediately set the tone for the day — soothing, calming, and stress free.
PERCEPTION IS REALITY
Ultimately, perception is reality. If your customers enter your place of business and use the restroom and they find dirt or mold growing the corners, no matter how clean the rest of the bathroom is, they will leave thinking your establishment is dirty. If the details aren’t taken care of, nothing else truly matters. Humans form opinions of spaces, things, and people based on their perception of how clean it is or not. It’s also a feeling as well.
Humans like to feel clean, which is hard to do in a commercial space that’s cluttered with boxes everywhere. When a bad guy enters in a motion picture, he is usually dirty. When a crime is about to happen, it’s in a dirty alleyway next to the trash can. Poor people are depicted as dirty whereas, rich and wealthy people are clean. Hence, humans are programmed early on to associate health, wellness, and wealth with cleanliness.
Here at Happy Employees Cleaning in West Fargo, we understand how important the details are when it comes to cleaning your commercial place and the perception your customers will have on your overall cleanliness. We make sure the smallest details, from the cobwebs in the corners to the dirt on your light fixtures, are wiped clean.
Cleanliness plays into first impressions, and when people perceive your place as dirty, it can cost you, especially in this social media age where it’s easy to post a picture of a hair in someone’s soup on Instagram, write a negative review on Google, or go on a rant on your Facebook page about the disgusting disarray of a flooring in a business.
Cleanliness is often rated as one of the highest factors for a customer’s review. In a restaurant, cleanliness ranks higher than quality of food and even service. Cleanliness is associated with healthiness. Subconsciously, your mind makes decisions and presumptions based on perception of cleanliness.
A JOB WELL DONE IS A JOB THAT’S UNNOTICED
As a commercial cleaning company, you want everyone to expect a clean environment. In that way, when your customers don’t have to think about clean, you will have succeeded. Happy Employees Cleaning in West Fargo desires to go unnoticed as your commercial cleaning company. We want to leave no trace that we were there, but you’ll know the space is clean because you find nothing that is unclean.
SURFACES THAT ARE MOST OFTEN OVERLOOKED IN A COMMERCIAL CLEANING JOB

- Ceiling lights
