Your office reflects your business. When prospective clients or existing clients come to visit, your office can be affiliated with the quality of work you deliver so it’s critical to maintain a clean and hygienic office all year-round.
A clean office environment can also be beneficial to the wellbeing and performance of employees.
Over the years, a number of office cleaning myths and misconceptions have emerged that successfully deter office managers, CEOs, directors and business owners alike from taking advantage of all the benefits professional commercial cleaning services can deliver for their company.
Here are 5 common misconceptions surrounding office cleaning services.
Office cleaning is only required when your office is visibility dirty
False. Much of the harmful bacteria, germs and viruses that spread around office environments is invisible to the naked eye.
While your office may look clean, tidy and organised without consistent cleaning with quality products you might be harbouring and helping facilitate the spread of these dangerous germs. Staying on top of dust and office cleanliness can only be achieved with regularly scheduled cleaning and working with a professional outfit like ALLCLEAN might be the easiest way to achieve that.
Employees can manage office cleaning responsibilities
This is most certainly not true. Unless it’s factored into the terms of employment, employees shouldn’t be expected to clean and maintain their workplace. Employees have been recruited for a specific role and time spent cleaning can detract from their overall performance and commitment to their primary role.
Furthermore, every workplace is different, and the cleaning procedures required for your workplace may extend beyond your employees’ knowledge.
A professional commercial cleaner is familiar with practices and requirements across a host of different industries and will do a far better job than those who don’t belong have a professional cleaning background.
Commercial cleaning services are expensive
Many people assume hiring professional cleaners is too expensive and making the investment will detract from their bottom-line. In reality, most commercial cleaning companies are affordable and offer great value for money.
The money you choose to invest in hiring a cleaning company might just help save you money in other areas of your business, for example reducing absentee days or reduced employee productivity from employees having to clean for themselves.
They will provide substandard service
You’ve likely heard a friend or associate complain about lackluster cleaning service from a cleaning company. This is likely because in recent years there’s a been an explosion of unprofessional cleaning outfits in Perth.
A lot of this misconception comes down to the company you choose and the experience you have with the. ALLCLEAN has been providing commercial cleaning services to Western Australian businesses for over 45 years and take great pride in delivering quality service with attention to detail.

Quality cleaning products aren’t essential
Lastly, many people are under the impression all cleaning products are the same. This is false, not all cleaning products are created equally.
If saving costs is high on your priority list, then compromising on cleaning products isn’t the answer. Not only do poor quality cleaning products not work in many instances they can also damage your furnishings.
Many commercial cleaning companies use high-grade products that don’t just smell good but also disinfect your surfaces. These products are often not available at general supermarkets and are specifically crafted to disinfect high traffic areas like your office.
Similarly to many other specialised industries common misconceptions and myths can emerge that detract people from employing their services when in fact it can be incredibly advantageous for them.
