If you are looking for a new commercial cleaning company to take care of your property, there are many things to take into consideration. These next tips are key when deciding on a new janitorial company. The cleaning company you hire should be able to handle all the different tasks that your facility requires and will require throughout the year.  Do not hire just a M-F cleaning company, find one that also offers window cleaning, floor restoration, exterior pressure washing, etc.

The First Thing To Do Is: Make a wish list of everything you need the cleaning company to clean. 

For example:

  • Building Entrances
  • Lobbies
  • Gym
  • Restrooms
  • Offices
  • Break Rooms and Kitchens
  • Elevators
  • Doggie Stations Trash Removal
  • Trash Pick Up Around the Property and Garage
  • Hallway Machine Scrubbing
  • Light Fixture Dusting
  • Pressure washing around the property
  • Carpet Cleaning

The Second Thing To Do Is: Have a detailed list of all the tasks plus the cleaning frequency for each.  Once you have that ready, you are ready to schedule a walkthrough with a representative of the cleaning company. You should walk the property with the list so that you can go over your expectations.

Important to Remember: Properly cleaning the entire facility takes time and labor can add up. There might be items that only need to be done once a week vs items like restrooms and high touch point areas will need to be done daily.  Hiring a company with the lowest bid is not always recommended. Have you heard the old saying “You Get What You Pay For”?.  If you are getting a very low rate, ask yourself why? Most of the time, it is a sales person trying to win the bid without regard to operations and considering if there will be enough labor hours within the budget he/she provided.
