For the Best Looking Business, Hire a Janitorial Service in Mankato, MN

As Minnesota grows, office space in many communities is becoming limited or the space available may be far from ideal. In some cases, fledgling businesses have fewer options for their first headquarters, but still need to make a good impression on prospective customers and clients. Whatever the case, you need to know that a professionally cleaned and maintained business will help make that impression despite the age of the building or type of furnishings. The professional technicians at ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca know how to make every business look its best with top-notch janitorial services.

Three aspects that make the biggest impact on visitors where we can help the most:

Visible surfaces
“What you see is what you get,” goes the old saying. If what a customer or client sees is dirt, smudges or dust, it’s like waving a warning flag that may easily offset your friendly handshake. We’ll make sure that surfaces are very clean, so much so that people may comment. If the woodwork or carpeting in your office is older, making it look its best will draw attention to the detail and care you give your surroundings. It can turn an older office space into a positive statement about your approach to business. If the space had been used for something quite different, making it shine and restoring aspects of the room may also prove an eye-opener. Older furnishings can be made bright and offer a classic look.

Restrooms and break areas
This goes without saying, but it’s one of the most noticed areas and one where many businesses fall short. You want your restrooms, coffee and eating areas as clean as those in your customer’s home or a good hotel. They should shine, smell clean and show that they’ve been recently cleaned. That means clean tile and grout and sparkling mirrors and surfaces. Sinks, tabletops and microwaves should be spotless.

Many janitorial services don’t do windows. We do and do them well. Clean windows send all available light into your business even on the gray days. Sunlight is a subtle but positive factor in making people feel good about what they’re doing, whether employee or customer.

We do far more than trash removal and cleaning carpets, and we’ll gladly describe our extensive offering of services when you call. Let us set up a regular cleaning schedule that meets your needs and budget. For the best value in commercial cleaning and janitorial services, contact ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca today.

When to Schedule Janitorial Cleaning Services for Your Mankato, MN Business

ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca provides flexible scheduling to complete all your cleaning needs.

What does your office calendar look like for the holidays? If all or part of your staff will be away for a day or more, that is the ideal time for a top to bottom office cleaning. Even if you have a staff janitor, it pays to bring in extra help for a comprehensive cleaning while employees and customers aren’t present. With our professional team and superb janitorial services, ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca can make your business look like new overnight!

When we have the entire place to ourselves, we can move in with more people, more equipment, and accomplish more in less time. This saves you time and money.

If your company is closed to prepare for a sales event, inventory, a holiday, or just a long weekend, we can make your business space look new again. We’ll get your offices and conference areas spotless for holiday customers or clients, and it will be that much cleaner for your office holiday party, business receptions, or meetings. If you’re in retail, service, or the professions, a clean facility makes the best statement to anyone who comes in. Why take any chances, especially during the busiest season of the year?

If you don’t have a regular janitorial service, or if you were thinking about supplementing your current cleanup crew, now is a great time to try out our cleaning services.

Janitorial Services Can Improve Productivity in Mankato and Waseca, MN

ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca provides janitorial services in Mankato, MN and the surrounding communities

In a cost-saving measure, a company we know of cut back on its office cleaning. Employees were asked to empty their own wastebaskets and be more careful not to drop things on the carpet because they would be vacuumed less frequently. Some employees put off their trash duties because they were too busy. Others delayed because they felt it wasn’t something they were hired to do. There was also a morale impact: Consciously or unconsciously, people felt the company thought less of them because of the change. The result was dirtier offices and a decline in productivity. For optimum efficiency and clean facilities, consider keeping or adding a professional janitorial service in Mankato and Waseca on call, like ServiceMaster of Mankato.

That may be one case study, but the concept of a clean work environment enhancing productivity has been proven. Freeing the indoor air of dust, pollen, and other allergens and contaminants can improve worker efficiency from 4 to 16 percent, according to studies by the Environmental Protection Agency and other research organizations. A productivity study published by researchers at Brigham Young University showed 88 percent of those surveyed had better concentration in a clean office space. The perception of orderliness throughout a company is important to send the message that everyone is on the same page and that a well-organized environment is a priority.

Then there’s the health issue. The biggest lag on productivity is time away from work. Regular cleaning, disinfecting of surfaces, and removal of trash where bacteria can linger will help keep employees healthy. If modern, professional cleaning services keep one virus from spreading, you may save one workday per employee per cold season, not to mention bacterial infections or allergies.

If you want to keep your employees motivated and on the job, keep your business clean. Contact ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca today for professional janitorial services in Mankato and Waseca, MN.

Holiday Party Tip- Use Mankato Cleaning Services for Less Event Stress

Event Cleaning Services for Holiday Parties by ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca

mankato cleaning services holiday-party

You’ve volunteered (or you’ve been volunteered) to be the committee to plan this year’s holiday party! YAY! Okay, now what? Well, ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca offers some simple, money-saving tips for putting on memorable and meaningful festivities for your company. No matter the occasion, there are some common things to think about when planning your party: food and beverage choices, set-up/take-down, entertainment options, where to hold the party, and cleaning services, just to name a few. Let’s get right to it!

Where’s the Party? – Venue Variables

A recent holiday party survey by BIZBASH showed that 30% of companies host their holiday parties at the office. There are multiple reasons that this can be a great venue choice:

  • Everyone already knows how to get there
  • Easy on the budget
  • Supplies, facilities, and resources are easily accessible
  • Will accommodate the appropriate number of guests

Also, it may be neat to do something at your facility besides just work, work, work.

However, sometimes you just need a change of scenery—especially when celebrating with your co-workers. If you decide to hold the party off-site, you’re in good company:

  • 25%- Local meeting center/conference facility
  • 38%- A popular local hangout, bar, or restaurant
  • 7%- The boss’s (or another staff person’s) house

The number of guests and available budget will ultimately dictate where you decide to hold the event. Check several local event venues for pricing and availability. Many establishments offer bundled packages which offer one affordable price for catering, beverages, and space rental.  

To Clean or Not to Clean? – Hiring Cleaning Services

Here’s an Idea:  Whether you decide to hold the party at your facility or at another space, think about hiring a company that provides event cleaning services in Mankato and Waseca to clean and prepare the facility before and after the party. A company that knows the ins and outs of event cleaning services as well as set-up and take-down is like a party planner’s dream come true. It’s like having your very own right-hand man/woman. They take a huge portion of the work off of the plate of the party planner who is already incredibly busy (and maybe even stressed).  “So many companies have figured out that this is a budget-friendly, hassle-free solution,” says Ivan DenOuden, owner of ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca. “We come in and handle the facility set up and take down, cleaning services, remove garbage, carpet cleaning…whatever the customer needs from us, and it is a lot less expensive than people expect.”

Whether you decide to hold your holiday party at your office or somewhere else, just be sure to take a few moments to reflect a little, take a few deep breaths, enjoy the celebration, and enjoy the people that you are celebrating with. Overall, most of us can say it’s been a good year.
