It is worth taking the time to understand the process of finding the right commercial cleaning company for your business. Otherwise, you could end up where you started, with an inefficient use of money and resources.
Are they legal?
Not only must the commercial cleaning company be insured, but it must also make sure that you are protected. Commercial cleaners must have adequate insurance to protect their business and people in the event of a problem, as liability insurance is necessary. Some of these insurances include general liability, automobile liability, workers’ compensation, and master policy.
Are they experienced?
If you hire an experienced commercial cleaning company, you can be sure that the job will be done to the highest possible standards. While a new business may show potential, it is simply not worth the risk. An established commercial cleaning business means you have built a good reputation, treat your cleaners with respect, and have a good customer base who trust your services. Experience matters because experienced companies are simply better at what they do.
Level of education
Just because a company offers you the lowest price doesn’t mean they are right for you. You may pay a little more to work with a professional cleaning company, and in the long run, the added expense will always be worth it. The commercial cleaning company that you plan to hire to clean your facility must have trained and qualified professional employees. Beyond basic training, if you are looking for industrial cleaning, medical cleaning, or school cleaning, your commercial cleaning services should offer your employees training specifically tailored to your type of establishment.
Make sure to search and verify their references
Make sure the company you are considering doing business with has references to verify. References are great resources for letting you know the pros and cons they have encountered with cleaning companies. Always do this by calling your references and verify that they exist and that they are satisfied with the services they have received from the company. They can also better guide you on the costs associated with these services.
Know the cleaning schedule that should be planned
One of the first questions to ask yourself is your potential cleaning service scheduling system. Many commercial cleaning services are performed at night when offices are closed during the day. Therefore, you need to ask about system planning for your potential cleaning service. Knowing what time you are doing what, you should take your time very seriously, and your cleaning business should stick to your routine. Sometimes a cleaning company may need to hire additional staff to meet its business needs. These questions will help you manage your expectations as it is up to both parties to put together an agreement/system that works best for everyone.
At this point in the article, you should have a good idea of what to expect from your potential commercial cleaning business and feel comfortable investing in their services.
