This can include other factors beyond the initial purchase price such as repairs, servicing, top-ups and refills. When adding all the costs together it could equal hundreds of pounds and if you need specialist cleaning equipment such as jet washers or hard floor cleaning tools, this could easily equate to thousands.
Not only do the actual cleaning equipment and materials cost, utilising the equipment properly requires necessary training, and can take up valuable employee time – all of which have costs too.
