What to Look for in Commercial Cleaning Companies

October 29th, 2013   •   No Comments   

No one enjoys the day to day tedium of housework, and when one works in a commercial building it seems there are always housekeeping tasks to accomplish. Many businesses employ a commercial janitorial company to do the work for them, freeing them to do the business of running their business. But with so many companies to choose from, how does one know what to look for in commercial cleaning companies?

Reputation

When considering a company, reputation means everything. Companies that have been in business for many years – or new businesses that are getting excellent word-of-mouth advertising – are going to be a better bet for cleaning needs than a company that is rumored to have problems, or even worse, a fly-by-night company that may be here one day and gone the next.

All serious commercial cleaning businesses know that their reputation is all they have, and they guard it by offering the best services for the price. When considering a company, ask around and find out what the buzz on the street is about the company. Do background research online; checking businesses out with the Better Business Bureau is a free service. Taking the time to do a little homework can help make for a more informed decision.

Services

Once the company has passed the reputation check, speak with a representative to determine the scope of services they provide. Some cleaning companies only offer the bare minimum of service, i.e. vacuuming, bathroom cleaning, emptying trash, etc. Most commercial cleaners will do the heavy work as well, such as floor maintenance and other difficult jobs, eliminating the need to hire a contractor to perform these tasks when needed.

Schedule

After the services have been approved scheduling is the next factor to consider. If one needs a company to clean every day, can this be accomplished, or does the company prefer an every other day or once a week cleaning schedule? Determine what is best for your needs regarding scheduling; a good company will work with you on this.

Hiring a commercial cleaning company enables you to focus on running your business. Making an informed decision is important. By following these guidelines you’ll have a clean business space as well as peace of mind.
