Q. How do I refigure a government contract when the go from 5 days per week to 1 day per week?
A. Experience has taught all of us that reduced cleaning frequencies result in increased cleaning times. In your case the increased cleaning time would be similar in going from APPA level 2 to an APPA level 1. Each of the 5 levels (increasing upwards) adds 15-%-20% more time. So, the cleaning time would increase by at least 30% - 40%. Our JanBid recalculates the nightly cleaning time to increase the time slightly when the building is cleaned fewer times.
There are health risks by allowing surfaces to go unclean for an entire week. Recent outbreaks of MRSA prove that employees in any work environment are susceptible. Health and safety are at risk and this can increase absenteeism. A cutback in cleaning frequencies could result in employee illness which in the long run will cost the employer more.
