The Cleaning Dilemma: To Hire or Not to Hire Floor Scrubbers Service

Share This Post

Keeping office space clean is a top priority for most business owners, and there are several different methods available for accomplishing this goal. For example, some business owners will hire in-house cleaning staff and will purchase their own cleaning equipment for their staff members to use, while others will outsource all aspects of cleaning to a professional janitorial company.

The Cleaning Dilemma To Hire or Not to Hire Floor Scrubbers Service

When considering which option is ideal, business owners should take note of the costs related to renting versus buying office cleaning equipment.

The Up-Front Cost

Whether a rental or a purchase is selected, there are a few basic costs to consider. When buying cleaning equipment, the business owner may purchase a new machine under warranty, or they may purchase a used machine that will likely be more affordable. With a floor scrubber rental from Los Angeles, or with other types of cleaning equipment rentals, the amount of time that the equipment is rented for will usually impact the cost. With this in mind, it is important to consider how frequently the equipment will be used to determine which option is the most cost-effective.

Maintenance and Supplies Costs

Generally, when a business owner schedules floor scrubbers service and other types of cleaning service, the cost of maintenance and supplies for the equipment is already included in the cost. When the business owner purchases this equipment outright, the cost of supplies and maintenance must be calculated into the total cost of ownership. Most cleaning equipment will require regular maintenance as well as repair work from time to time.

Labor Costs

All equipment will need to be used by a paid professional. When in-house staff members use equipment that is purchased, their hourly rate should be considered to calculate labor costs. With cleaning services, labor costs are often included in the total fee regardless of how long it actually takes the cleaning crew to complete the task.

The decision about whether to rent or buy equipment from companies like Total Clean Equipment should not be taken lightly. In most cases, business owners who make a solid comparison between these two choices may discover that the cost differential is minimal and that there are considerable benefits regarding convenience and time-savings associated with either option.
