Businesses have an implied responsibility of offering a sanitized, clean and well-maintained indoor working environment for people working within the premises. It is more than necessary to ensure that business premises, offices, common & private workrooms are maintained on a daily basis. In a world where outsourcing is the preferred option for most services, businesses prefer getting commercial cleaning services for their maintenance needs. Finding one, however, isn’t easy. Here’s what you need to know about selecting a reliable service.
Experience and expertise
Commercial cleaning is kind of tricky, because it is not possible to work during the office hours or business timings, as the work and productivity can get affected. You need a company that understands such complications and work around the clock to offer integrated facilities management. Check the range of services that are offered by the service, which should include polymer flooring cleaning, cleanroom cleaning and basic janitorial services. Ask simple questions like –
- How long have you been in business?
- Are your workers trained and have they attended WSQ Workshops?
- Do you have an in-house training system in place?
- Who are your regular clients?
Any commercial cleaning company that has been around for more than a couple of years should be able to offer client references on request. They should be able to work around your timings and preferences. If the company also deals in things like post construction cleaning, it can be an added advantage.
Ask for an estimate
This is probably a common concern for most businesses – the cost of commercial cleaning. However, you would be rather surprised to know that such services are extremely affordable. Most companies that deal in commercial cleaning are extremely well-versed with the needs of commercial clients and can offer a customized quote in advance. It is also important to note that pricing isn’t the only reason to select a service. Often an experienced service offers a lot more that little extra that you pay. Also, it only makes sense to avoid people, especially cleaners and janitors on the payroll, because it adds more work for the management. With an experienced service for your cleaning needs, you can be assured of having a clean office each morning.
Also, check if the company is well-equipped with the latest technology and uses green and safe methods for cleaning. They should be able to answer your questions and offer information on these aspects as required.
