When considering the possible hiring of a commercial cleaning service, you must first determine exactly what service or services you need the cleaning service to provide. Once you have an idea of your needs, then comes the time to actually look into the hiring. There are a few areas to keep in mind that will help in taking a lot of the stress out of the process.
When looking at any cleaning service that you might decide to hire the first area to look at is the company’s reputation. Ask prospective companies for references, and take the time to source out possible reviews and feedback as well.
If you are part of a business association try asking fellow business owners for recommendations as to who they may use. If they are willing to recommend a company, most probably your search will be over.
It is almost a sure bet that you will not want the majority of your commercial cleaning done during your usual 9-5 business areas. Things like vacuuming and dusting just are not tasks to be performed in front of customers. Not to mention the noise of vacuuming alone.
A professional commercial cleaning service will make themselves readily available when you need them, even if the need is after normal working hours.
Perhaps the most important area to consider when looking to hire a cleaning service is the cost involved. Most businesses work on a budget, so any additional costs that are incurred have to fit into that budget.
When considering a commercial cleaning service, are they willing and able to work with you in the effort to get what services you need to have done within a price frame that you both see as fair? Or do they operate on the one size fits all principle?
Most businesses do not think of the area of insurance at least not when it comes to their cleaning service. However, it is very important that the company you hire has sufficient insurance that covers their employee’s.
The very reason being that you do not want your business liable for any injuries incurred by the cleaning companies staff. A professional company will have insurance in place that they themselves provide.
Finding a commercial cleaning service that fits your criteria may be a daunting endeavor, but it can be done. It may require a little homework and a lot of patience but in the end, you are sure to find just the company to fit the need of your particular business.
