Janitorial outsourcing Cleaning That Focuses On Quality Assurance - Janitorial outsourcing has its critics – and many of them are right. Low-cost janitorial providers sacrifice quality in order to offer low, attractive bid packages. And can end up costing you in the long run.

But that’s not always the case. In fact, many companies enjoy the benefits of outsourcing their janitorial services by balancing cost savings with responsibly addressing the unique needs of their business. Each day this week, we’ll cover the benefits of outsourcing and how to avoid the pitfalls that come with low-cost providers. Today, we’ll cover quality assurance.

Some janitorial providers neglect key items in order to offer rock-bottom prices. And their poor quality control doesn’t just create frustration. It can lead to safety issues and even cause damage to your facility. The key to a successful program is to have robust Service Level Agreements (SLA) for work order management, inspections and even corrective training for when the inevitable hiccup eventually does happen.

Fortunately, not all janitorial providers skimp on quality assurance. There are many that understand how to create a quality-oriented janitorial program that emphasizes accountability and results. Janitorial providers should be able to address on-site supervision, metrics, reporting, responsiveness, and the inclusiveness of the scope of work. Everything from work orders to inspections should be documented. When something isn’t up to your expectations, management should take corrective actions and document them.

Critics of janitorial outsourcing are right to be concerned about service quality. That’s why it’s important to pick a janitorial provider that puts quality first and allows you to reap the benefits of outsourcing, while still being confident in your service quality.

CDCWith the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reporting that a typical flu season costs an estimated $7 billion in sick days and lost productivity, the workplace is often “ground zero” for contamination, according to the Business Wire.

“The workplace can be a hotbed for influenza germs. Common areas, break rooms, restrooms, conference rooms, elevator buttons and shared tools can be contaminated with the flu virus. If one person is infected, then they can potentially put the rest of their workplace at risk, even through indirect contact.

  • Encourage employees to frequently wash their hands with disinfecting soap. Also provide plenty of alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Wipe down “high touch areas” with disinfecting wipes at least once a day. High-touch areas would include break room surfaces, conference room tables and chairs, doorknobs, restroom fixtures, light switches and tools that are used by multiple people.
  • Make sure everyone has flu-fighting supplies at their desk: tissues, hand sanitizer, and disinfecting wipes, at a minimum.

Contact us for a facility assessment of sanitation service and supply products, to keep your work area running at full capacity.
