You might be surprised, but studies have shown that office cleaning can lead to greater productivity in not only yourself, but your entire workforce. A clean environment stimulates the brain and focuses ideas. This is from an esoteric perspective (though it has been shown to be true). From a practical perspective, a clean environment is an organized one. You can get more work done when you have to spend less time looking for the tools you need. Granted, if it has been a while since the last big clean it can look like an overwhelming job. It doesn’t have to be, however.
Protect yourself and your property. Make sure your cleaning company is properly licensed for the work they are doing. If they are bonded, you have further assurance that you will not suffer a loss at their hands. And never hire a cleaning company who can’t show you proof of insurance.
HOME OFFICE DEDUCTIONS – For a while there was talk that taking home office deductions raised a red flag. As long as your business is legitimate and you designate an area for your home office you are okay. With that you can deduct expenses that you incur in the course of doing business. You can deduct office furniture like file cabinets, desks, office decorating and even office cleaning. You can also deduct rent, utilities, insurance, property taxes, supplies, phones, and repairs made to the office area of your home.
You need to properly document your business expenses from your personal expenses. If you are using credit cards you either get a card in your business name or designate one card for business purposes only.
Make sure they can accommodate the cleaning schedule you desire. Daily, once a week, every two weeks, monthly-however often you need them. Will they offer you a decent rate or give you a discount for more frequent visits?
Use your passions! Do you make your own crafts? Are you a great cook? Perhaps you are proficient with your digital camera or love making handcrafted jewelry. Just think of your hobbies and interests.
AUTOMOBILE – You can deduct your mileage when traveling for your home based business. Keep a log of your mileage and what you vehicle was being used for.
All of these are very important to make your office perfectly clean. You need to hire an office cleaning service that can provide all of these cleaning aspects. Your service provider must be innovative in their approach to work effectively, not only in the way they do the job but also in the way that they manage and supervise each individual contract. These tasks are definitely essential to keep your office always clean and to make a good impression to your clients.
