How to Hire a Communal Cleaning Contractor?

You know that you need to hire a communal cleaning contractor to clean some common areas. You may not know where to begin. It can be overwhelming especially when you see the wide array of cleaning contractors to choose from.

Finding the Right Contractors to Do Communal Cleaning

One of the best things that you can do to find the right contractor is to ask for referrals from people you know. Some of your colleagues, your family members, and your friends, may have hired contractors in the past. They will give you the numbers of those that satisfied their needs. You can also check the ratings of the different companies online. Once you have done these things, you can do the following:

  • Create a shortlist of the companies that you want to call.
  • Call the companies and ask them some questions that will give you an idea about what they can provide.
  • Ask for a quote.
  • Hire the company that you think will work best for your needs.

Knowing the Rates of the Cleaning Contractors

There are some contractors that will charge hourly while some would charge depending on the services that they offer. Ask the cleaning contractors how long it would take for the communal areas to be cleaned. Some would give a flat rate especially if you would hire them more than twice a week. 

Check if They Conduct Background Checks on Employees

You want to hire cleaning contractors that you can trust, right? How can you trust the company if they are not sure if their employees are trustworthy? If you are going to hire an independent cleaning contractor, you are going to do the background check on your own. There are different websites and agencies that can help you do that. 

Make Sure that Cleaning Contractors Are Compliant with Health and Safety

This can be hard to do especially if you would just ask cleaning contractors about it. They may say “yes” but you cannot be entirely sure until you check. One way to help you check is to look at the different organizations that they may belong in. There are some organizations that will ensure that all of the companies under them follow health and safety regulations.

Check if They Are Insured

Can you imagine if you would hire cleaning contractors and they are not insured? If something happens to them while they are providing the services that you need, you will be liable. You do not want this to happen. 

At the same time, you want to protect the different items that you may have. What if the items become broken or damaged while they are cleaning? You want assurance from them that this will not happen. If it does happen, you want to get compensation for the broken or missing items. 

Cleaning Supplies and Equipment

One of the reasons why it is more ideal to hire contractors to clean communal spaces is you do not have to worry about purchasing tools anymore. They will be in charge of bringing their own tools and items that they would use to clean various parts of the communal space.
