Choosing the right commercial cleaning service is one of the most important decisions you’ll make running a business; it is also one of the trickiest.
Keeping your workspace clean and tidy is a no-brainer and has proven benefits associated with a clean office, such as the obvious health benefits, but also increased efficiency and morale. All of these advantages are welcome, but finding the right professional office cleaners for you and your workspace can be a bit challenging.
Today, we’re diving in on what to look for in a commercial cleaning service. Read more below.
What Services are Offered?
Before you hire just any commercial cleaning company, you’ll want to look into the services they provide and compare them to which services you require. Some companies solely focus on window cleaning, others specialize in janitorial services, while some might do it all. You might be in the market for a professional cleaning company that provides several services, so you can streamline your process, finances and eliminate anything unnecessary. Some areas you might want to be cleaned on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis are:
- Entrance and reception areas
- General and executive office areas
- Break room areas
- and more.
Look at Their Reviews
Most commercial cleaning happens after “normal” business hours, so finding a reputable company and one you can trust is imperative. Always take the time to look into online reviews on 3rd party websites, such as Google or Angie’s List. When inquiring about their services, ask about their current clients, past experience, and ask for references. All of the information you gather will tell you a lot about who they are as a company and whether you can trust them.
Who Do They Employ?
As a business owner or manager, you have a great responsibly to protect your property. This starts with ending a cleaning company that you can trust but finding one you can trust boils down to the quality of their employees. Make sure to learn about the company before hiring them, who they hire, and their hiring process, and that the company is licensed, bonded and insured.
Level of Experience
Finding an experienced company can make all the difference. Of course, you may luck out finding a cleaning service that’s newer and provides great work. However, the more tenured companies will have the experience and knowledge you desire. For example, if your business is in the medical or dental field, finding a company that can adhere to the strict guidelines associated with cleanliness is crucial.
