A clean and tidy office is an important part of creating a work environment where employees can thrive. After all, nobody wants to work somewhere that feels dirty, unhygienic, and has the potential to make them sick.
With so many different cleaning companies offering their services, how do you know which one to choose? As with hiring the services of any contractor, it’s important to do your research to ensure that you select a supplier that can deliver not just exceptional results, but also value for money.
Here are our top tips on what to look for when hiring a commercial cleaning company for your business.
Unsurprisingly, experience with other commercial clients is a top priority when it comes to choosing a good cleaning company. Cleaning a residential property is quite different from commercial properties, and there may be different products and techniques that need to be used. For example, many modern offices contain a great deal of internal glass, whereas homes don’t. It’s worth finding out what similar commercial prospective cleaning companies have worked for, and checking that they have the skills, training, and supplies to complete your office cleaning to a high standard.
A great cleaning company has reliable, hardworking staff that they retain for a long period of time. When employees are happy, they stay with a company until their situation demands otherwise. Content employees are also more likely to work hard, do a good job, and go above and beyond when the situation calls for it. Not to mention that a lower turnover of staff means that you are more likely to have the same workers coming in to clean your offices each time. This is beneficial since they will be able to develop a routine that maximizes cleanliness and efficiency, as well as develop trust with you.
Most businesses require cleaning to take place outside of their usual office hours, so commercial cleaning companies are used to operating outside of the 9-5, too. However, every business is unique, so make sure that your chosen commercial cleaning provider is consistently able to offer the service you need at times to suit you.
Just like a residential home, there are some elements of cleaning that you may not need to be done quite as often as others. For example, you may want carpets and flooring in the main office cleaned every evening, but those in the boardroom done once a week. A great commercial cleaning company will let you tailor the services you have to meet your specific needs.
Cleaning may not sound like dangerous work, but every job comes with some degree of risk. Before hiring a commercial cleaner, we recommend that you ensure that they offer their staff comprehensive workplace safety training so that you can rest assured that the people cleaning your offices are working safely as well as effectively.
Budget is a major consideration for any business, but the cheapest option is rarely the best. Look at the services offered, the experience they have, and decide if your potential cleaning company offers you good value for money.
