As a business, you’re great at what you do. You work hard to create an excellent customer experience while delivering fantastic customer service. But at the end of the day, you don’t have time to clean and sanitize things the way you know it needs to be done. While cleaning may not be your favorite task, it is one that needs to be accomplished one way or another. You know that it may be time to hire a commercial janitorial service.
Let’s face it, a business that isn’t spic and span can often lose customers just based on the perception that they’re not taking care of the things they need to.
So what are you supposed to do? Often, outsourcing your commercial cleaning needs can be the best way to make sure that everything gets done right. But when hiring a commercial cleaning service, how can you tell you’ll get the right company for the job and not just someone going through the motions?
Here are three important things to take into consideration when hiring a commercial cleaner.
Choosing the Right Commercial Cleaning Service
- Services A good commercial cleaner should have a menu of services that fits your business now and will grow with you over time. Even if you start small, you’ll want to be able to scale your needs with a business that has a wide service offering and the capacity to handle your growth. In addition to your regular cleaning schedule, special add-ons or seasonal needs like window cleaning, carpet maintenance and more can be a huge benefit to your business. Working with a single company for all of these cleaning tasks is much easier for your business. It can also prove to be more cost efficient as you may be able to bundle services to get the best bang for your buck.
- Equipment Anyone can buy a vacuum, but that doesn’t meant that everyone will buy the right vacuum for the job (or know how to properly use it). Choosing a commercial janitorial company that’s dedicated to using commercial grade equipment can mean getting the job done right and done in less time. It may also mean that your space is better maintained over the long term and suffers less wear and tear. When choosing a service provider, make sure they have commercial grade equipment that is well maintained. Also, if green cleaning or low-odor supplies are essential, you’ll want a professional who gives you that option.
- People It’s important to hire a cleaning company that hires people who are dedicated to doing a good job. Not only should employees be able to properly use all cleaning equipment, and correctly treat and care for the furniture, flooring and other materials used and being cleaned in your business space, but you as the business owner should have peace of mind about and trust in the people servicing your location. How do you find a business that has trustworthy employees with this level of expertise? That’s simple. Ask about their hiring process, background checks and training procedures. Training is especially important as it should include in-depth upfront tutorials as well as ongoing check-ins and training.
When hiring a janitorial service, it’s important to ensure that you’ve hired the right company for your job. The company that has the right selection of services, proper equipment as well as employees that are reliable and well trained will help your business look its best.
