From offices to manufacturers to large-scale companies, every business can benefit from a facility service program. Your facilities are a seemingly small thing that makes a huge difference in the experience of your customers and your employees. Imagine a customer uses your public restroom only to find empty soap dispensers. Or, an employee reaches for the hand sanitizer and … nothing. Or, your office starts to smell a little off due to expired air fresheners. All of these small circumstances can quickly create an unsanitary and unprofessional environment.
Instead of adding these tasks to your to-do list, adding staff to perform these duties, or adding them to an existing employee’s responsibilities, a facility service program may be the perfect fit for your business.
What is a Facility Service Program?
A facility service program monitors and replenishes your janitorial supplies, from hand soap to air fresheners and everything that keeps your space sanitary and professional. Outsourcing your facility service comes with plenty of benefits — here are just a few.
The most apparent benefit of a facilities service program is that you will never run out of janitorial supplies. Your route rep monitors and replenishes necessities like hand soap, cleansers, paper products, paper towels, toilet paper, and air fresheners.
Janitorial supplies are not created equal! When you use a facilities services program, you can expect consistent, high-quality supplies suited to your company’s facilities and needs. And, you can rest assured knowing that you are getting the best value for your dollar.
Safety and Cleanliness
Having fully stocked janitorial supplies on hand means that every little mess can be addressed right away. This keeps your business always looking and feeling polished. While the scope of facility service programs varies, some include floor mats. Having a sufficient supply of anti-fatigue mats, bathroom mats, and scraper mats keep your employees and customer safe from potential slips and falls. And, when placed appropriately by professionals, they trap dirt and moisture to keep your facility clean.
As mentioned above, utilizing a facility service program means you don’t have to bear the cost of spending company time monitoring and replenishing janitorial supplies. And, it keeps your business running efficiently by ensuring you have all of those little things that are a big problem when they aren’t there.
Monitoring supply levels yourself, and keeping replacements on-hand in your facility, takes up valuable storage space. However, using a facilities service program means you don’t have to give up an inch of company space.
