So you’re re-opened, but you and your staff are now overwhelmed by the pressures of keeping your workplace clean. The only real solution, other than employing your in-house cleaners, is to use the services of a commercial cleaning company. A professional cleaning company will not only save you time by allowing you to focus on your main business priorities.
But the dilemma you are probably facing is how can you find the most suitable commercial cleaning company for your business? This guide will help you to select the most appropriate cleaning company to suit your business needs, courtesy of the team at JDK Cleaning.
When you do your search for a cleaning company, which will probably be on Google unless you have had some recommendations, the results can be overwhelming. You will be faced with ads, listing in the maps (which will be the ones located closest to you) and then a further list of various companies.
The first thing you should look out for are online reviews. We’re not talking about testimonials on websites which could have been written by the owners themselves, but Google, Facebook or Yell reviews for example.
In the same way that you probably would check out reviews if you were going on holiday, you should take the same approach when it comes to choosing your commercial cleaning company. Ideally you should be looking for companies with 4 stars or more and it’s important to read the reviews as this will give you an insight into what you can expect from the company.
Check their References
Once you’ve made a shortlist of cleaning companies that you like the sound of, then you should contact them each individually to enquire about their services and prices. The first thing you should ask about are references. Reputable commercial cleaning businesses should have lists of references they are happy to provide to potential clients. When you contact these referees, you will be able to ask important questions about a particular company’s service from their level of professionalism to their trustworthiness and effectiveness.
It’s also crucial that you check what insurances they have in place and ask them to send you copies (this is normal practice when a business is employing the services of another company). Ideally, they should have professional liability, public liability and employee liability insurances in place.
These are important as you, as the business owner, don’t want to be liable should one of the cleaners or anyone visiting your premises has an accident as result of the cleaning processes.
When you sign a contract with a local commercial cleaning contractor, make sure you talk to them about the products and materials they use. Ideally they should be using eco-friendly cleaning products which are heavily diluted before use as well as colour coded cleaning cloths and materials to prevent cross-contamination.
