C ommercial cleaning services have become vital due to Covid-19, especially now that businesses are opening back up. Your employees and customers are trusting you that they are entering a clean and safe workplace. Hiring a commercial cleaning company is extremely important with the reopening of offices but how do you know which cleaning company to choose? Here are some things to lookout for:

1.     Detailed Work Scope

Does the cleaning company have a detailed work scope listing the frequency of how often items and areas will be cleaned? Having a work scope helps you understand which services will be performed and at what frequency.  Starting off with a precise work scope will help to set clear expectations and in turn your cleaning company will be able to offer a consistent cleaning experience.

2.     Reference Checks

Does the commercial cleaning company have experience with similar buildings like yours? Make sure to ask for at least 3 references. Also, it’s important to check their Yelp and Google reviews to see what their current and former clients are saying about the services.

3.     Employee Training

Are the employees being trained by the janitorial company? Ask about their training programs and if their employees are being trained specifically for Covid-19. Are they following CDC cleaning guidelines?

4.     Cleaning Chemicals

Ask the cleaning company what chemicals they are using to clean and disinfect. Are they using a chemical that is approved and recommended by the EPA to protect you from potential viruses? You can always ask the cleaning company to give you a list of cleaning products they use and the safety data sheets.

Hiring a commercial cleaning company that focuses on these details will ensure the safety of your employees and clients. When interviewing janitorial companies, these details can spark questions which can help you understand if the company will be a fit for your cleaning needs.
