When you think of the typical office space, you think of a clean, efficient area for workers to get the job done. The truth is professional cleaning of a construction site is even more important – helping to reduce costs, build reputations and secure future work.
The cost of health and safety
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), last year there were 54,000 cases of non-fatal work-related injury on construction sites in the UK (source: https://www.hse.gov.uk/statistics/industry/construction.pdf) . However, workplace injury doesn’t just pose a question of the human cost, it also has a large economic cost. Millions of working days have been lost due to workplace injury and illness and many of them can be prevented with professional cleaning practices.
A clean, organised construction site can greatly increase productivity. Not only does it decrease the amount of wasted materials, in a clean work environment workers can complete tasks quicker and more efficiently.
In addition to this, site cleanliness can simply give employees added pride in their surroundings and they will therefore often provide higher quality work to live up to the site’s standards.
Protecting your future costs
Contrary to popular belief, a messy construction site doesn’t give off the impression that a great deal of work is being done. It can actually cause clients or prospective clients to question the quality and effectiveness of the work being done.
A construction site can act as your company advertisement for anyone visiting or passing by. Cleanliness and organisation are naturally associated with better quality work and professionalism. By keeping your site clean, it could lead to more contracts in the future.
The cost of your investment
Professional commercial cleaning can do more than make your site look better. It can actually ensure that your inventory is well maintained. Supplies that are dirty can easily get damaged. And knowing where everything is can prevent losses throughout the life of your project.
