There’s an old adage in advertising and business—if you want to make money, you’ve got to spend money. This speaks to the investments that you are willing to put into your business so that you can grow your business and support its future.
One of the best investments in your business is a part of the physical building. Be it a store or office, your carpets and flooring are an investment in your company.
Here are a few ways investing in carpet care helps your business:
- First impressions — We don’t like to think that people make snap first impressions, but they do. When a potential customer walks in, they begin judging your company and whether they want to do business with you. One of the best ways to give potential clients a good perspective is with well-cared-for flooring. By having your floors cared for with regular cleanings and maintenance, you ensure that they don’t look worn or threadbare, giving a positive, professional image of your company.
- Keep your carpets longer — Another way that this is an investment that can pay off is by extending the life of your carpet. Regular maintenance makes your carpets last longer which means less payout in the long run. Which would ultimately cost you more? Regular professional cleanings or having to buy new carpets every few years because they are not properly cared for.
- Protect the health of your employees — By cleaning your carpets regularly, you are also investing in the health of your employees. Carpets often trap dust and other allergens that can make it difficult to breathe and also exacerbate your employee’s allergies. If you clean them regularly, you are investing in keeping your employees healthy so they can put in more work for you and your business. Roughly, every employee costs a business about $1600 a year in lost time for being out sick. If you can do anything to ease this cost, you can get a good return on your investment.
Investing in your carpets and flooring with regular professional cleanings can actually save you money in the long run. You can increase your business, prevent your carpets from wearing out, and improve your employee’s health just with a good maintenance plan.
