5 Things Facility Managers Should Remove from Their To-Do Lists

They say time is money and that adage couldn’t be more applicable than in the manufacturing industry. Every time the production line slows, or you have to devote your attention to tasks outside your primary responsibilities, you can almost see dollar bills flying out the window. 

Overseeing the daily operations of a workplace like a factory or manufacturing plant is no easy task. Being a facility manager comes with many responsibilities and your to-do list can seem endless. Since you don’t have time to spare, and you want your employees to focus on their core tasks, hiring a professional commercial cleaning service is a great way to shorten your to-do list and focus on the work that really matters. Cross off the following five tasks by letting a professional commercial cleaning service take care of them, instead.

 

1. Taking Out the Trash

Nobody likes taking the trash out at the end of the day. It’s one more thing your employees have to do instead of their core tasks, which could result in a decline in production. A great solution is hiring a professional commercial cleaning service to ensure trash bins don’t overflow at the end of night or end of a shift. Your employees can focus on their work and you can focus on meeting production goals.  

 

2. Tackling Dust 

Many factories and manufacturing facilities get extremely dusty during day-to-day activities. Shelves, surface areas and even the back office can be exposed to the particles. It’s not just unsightly, it can also impact the wellbeing of employees if they have allergies or are sensitive to dust. When you have a professional commercial cleaning service in your corner that pays close attention to dust, you and your employees can pay close attention to other details such as production output, invoicing and quality assurance.

 

3. Wiping Down Changing Rooms

It’s important to maintain employee changing rooms because it’s where workers start and end their days. Providing a clean and orderly space, could boost employee morale. However, don’t make it your employees’ job to wipe down the lockers, benches or door handles in the facility changing rooms. Give that task to a professional commercial cleaning service to check it off your list.

 

4.  Sanitizing the Breakroom

Your production goals can take a hit if too many employees are taking sick days. One way to reduce the spread of germs and sickness at work is to ensure the cleaning service you hire sanitizes the facility breakroom. Employees can spread germs by touching refrigerators door handles, sink faucets and light switches. Reduce the amount of sickness in the workplace, by making a clean breakroom a priority.

 

5. Giving Floors Special Attention 

As a facility manager, you know having a clean, debris-free factory floor helps prevent accidents. You also know factory floors sometimes need special care like polishing, buffing or waxing. A well-maintained floor can improve the whole feel of a factory or warehouse – making a good impression on potential and current clients during a walkthrough. Don’t spend valuable time having employees give special care to floors when you could hire a commercial cleaning company that has the correct equipment and expertise to really make factory floors shine.
