Although we can’t say that the COVID-19 pandemic is over, it’s very likely that the worst is behind us as of the date of this post at the end of March 2021. With government roll outs of vaccination sites and as more are getting protected, industries like ours in pressure washing can now start making plans for the future of 2021. While most industries experienced a tough time throughout the pandemic, others stumbled upon an unprecedented opportunity to flourish. However, not all businesses that saw a boom can say that they’ll continue to enjoy their newfound success when the virus is finally defeated. Steam cleaning services are one of the few industries that are expected to continue being in high demand once the pandemic is officially over. We did some research into our industry of pressure washing post-COVID, let’s take a look!
PROPERTY OWNERS FOCUS ON HYGIENE
We’ve all been busy washing our hands and disinfecting surfaces over the past year. As the pandemic dials down and we start to venture outside our homes more, our hygiene awareness is likely to stay strong. People are expected to continue maintaining cleanliness at home, work, and other areas they frequent. Since surfaces need to be sanitized more thoroughly than before, people are going to work more closely with steam cleaning services to get this done. These specialists use an advanced high pressure steam cleaner to remove grime, clean dirt, and disinfect surfaces. This service will continue to be widely used in both residential and commercial settings.
SHOWING CUSTOMERS THAT EMPLOYEES ARE SAFE
No business wants to appear in the local news for the wrong reasons. Every manager or owner wants to show that their customers and employees that they care about their health. And the best way to demonstrate this is to partner with professional cleaners to maintain healthy spaces. Displaying signs that your facility is sanitized regularly gives customers peace of mind and encourages them to keep coming back. Going forward, your business’ cleanliness and hygiene will be a strong selling point for drawing customers and attracting employees.
IMPROVING GENERAL WORKPLACE HEALTH
COVID-19 isn’t the only illness that businesses need to worry about today. There are other viruses and infections that can spread around the workplace and cause devastating consequences on a company’s bottom line. Without proper deep cleaning, an office may slowly accumulate dirt, dust, and other contaminants that may affect employee health and wellness. Workers may catch the flu, trigger allergies, or even suffer from skin conditions. When combined with other measures, steam cleaning guarantees a healthy environment, cuts the cost of lost workdays, and improves productivity.
STEADY MARKET OF COMMERCIAL & RESIDENTIAL CLIENTS
Time and time again, the commercial cleaning industry has proved to be almost recession-proof. This sector doesn’t experience the ups and downs that other markets face when economic conditions get bad. Since commercial property owners won’t necessarily begin cleaning their buildings themselves when the going gets tough, steam cleaning companies can rest assured that property owners will always need their services.
AVAILABLE STEAM CLEANER EMPLOYEE LABOR
Many industries have the potential to grow, but they just can’t find the right talent. One reason that the cleaning industry is able to grow consistently is that it can easily find enough workers without worrying about expensive training or recruiting costs. When many people were out of work at the height of the pandemic, this sector quickly absorbed many unemployed people. As long as there is available labor, the sector will continue to grow.
EVERYONE IS LOOKING FOR HIGH-QUALITY CLEANING
This is not a time to skimp on hygiene, whether at home or in the office. But how do you ensure that you are getting quality cleaning services? You look for a cleaning company that has proven techniques and experience. So far, one of the cleaning methods that stands out for its effectiveness is steam cleaning. The latest steamers produce a high-quality steam pressure that can thoroughly clean and disinfect any indoor and outdoor surface. It can be used on anything from walls, tiles, furniture, carpets to upholstery.
STEAM CLEANING FUTURE IN 2021 AND BEYOND
Steam cleaning is steadily becoming the go-to cleaning option for businesses, institutions, and individuals who want to create a sparkling and safe space without worrying about chemicals, water waste, and downtime. Its popularity isn’t about to go away as the pandemic ends, in fact, it is expected to grow. Demand will remain strong since steam cleaning is more effective and economical at cleaning and sanitizing surfaces in a way that regular cleaning methods can’t, and without the environmental impacts
