Sustainability of FM Services Post-COVID

Jul 27, 2020

The cost involved in getting buildings virus-free and reinstating confidence doesn't sit well in a commercially stretched business.

Cleaning is a key priority for building owners readying workspaces for re-occupation. So too, are security and protection.

Market tested FM services can deliver better value at a time when many organisations need to look at reducing their bottom line. When tendering services, it is a good time to also look at the ecological and environmental benefits of adopting a sustainable approach to cleaning. Innovation can and should bring cost-saving.

For example, adopting a water management recycling system for cleaning vertical and horizontal surfaces, can deliver time savings of up to 25%, alongside a 90% reduction in water consumption.

Controlled dosage cleaning equates with better controlling product wastage while small pack sizes are easier and cheaper to transport and store, lighter in handling.

Chemical-free cleaning systems for hard surfaces, Smart-Call technology enables equipment maintenance be conducted via smartphone, reducing associated carbon footprint while eliminating 30% of maintenance visits.

Sustainability is also being embedded in Samsic security systems like Sentrikey which houses keys in a smartphone-activated keysafe on the property, enabling supplier switch from key safe diesel vans to smaller electric cars with lower running costs.

For building owners and occupiers, sustainability into soft services procurement makes sense not only environmentally but in driving down cost.

Red Box can help you look for service partners who are already sharing products and solutions that help reduce cost, increase efficiency, and meet sustainability goals.

Why not look into testing the market for a cleaning or FM service provider who can work with you to make really positive changes.
