Why facilities management means more than just cleaning
Facilities cleaning certainly forms a key part of a well-rounded building management service, but we believe it’s just a small piece of the puzzle. In fact, expert facilities management companies should be trusted to deliver great results across the whole facility or estate.
As well as helping your premises to look the part through cleaning, bundled FM services help provide the people and skills needed to make your workplace run smoothly, while being a rewarding and safe environment for staff and visitors.
At 14Forty, we’re proud to deliver expert cleaning solutions as part of our facilities management packages, but here’s why FM means more than just cleaning.
Making your business look the part
A well-maintained environment can help to inspire your team as they arrive for work each day. Not only that, it forms a strong first impression and helps create a welcoming environment for clients and guests too.
In addition to high-end cleaning, a premium facilities management company will also be able to perfectly maintain any outdoor grounds. At 14Forty, we offer comprehensive outdoor services where no job is too big or small, including grounds maintenance, vegetation management, pest control, gully cleaning and more.
Creating an enjoyable place to work
Many would agree that the right day-to-day support can help your business to reach its potential. At 14Forty, we’re passionate about helping companies across the UK to run smoothly, assisting with everything from reception and mailroom services to office supplies and travel planning.
Meanwhile, we’ve also been delivering bespoke food services to business and industry clients for over 75 years. Our award-winning culinary teams create healthy, delicious menus that employees can look forward to every day, alongside fun food experiences such as pop-ups and events.
Ensuring a safe working environment
Since the arrival of COVID-19, facilities cleaning has become even more vital to ensure the safety of staff, clients, and guests. In fact, research by the ONS shows that ‘enhanced cleaning’ was the top priority for working adults returning to the office post-pandemic.
However, workplace safety requires more than just professional cleaning. As a business owner, protecting staff and business assets can be just as paramount. Crime costs UK businesses billions of pounds every year, and the Government says 90% of all business crimes are from theft.
At 14forty we’re also trusted security partners, providing a range of services to protect both buildings and businesses. These include robust, cutting-edge CCTV systems, detailed security audits, expert manned guarding teams and more.
