Have you been considered hiring a janitorial service? Are you questioning what you should expect? There are thousands of commercial cleaning services to choose from, and it can be very confusing to hire a service when you are unsure of what to expect, but there are only a few simple expectations you must consider when you are researching possible candidates.
All employees’ must have a confirmed residency and checked references. It is best to double check that all staff workers are extensively screened to ensure that you feel safe and comfortable. Most services should provide their own cleaning supplies, fluid, and machinery, which will save you both time and money. The staff should be well trained, not only in the machinery, but also in the cleaning products used. Verify that this company has coverage in the business. Make sure that the service is bonded and insured in case of any on-site accidents (injuries, theft, etc.).
Some commercial services may provide:
- Trash and recycling removal
- Commercial carpet cleaning
- Floor sweeping, cleaning, and buffing
- Thorough dusting and wiping
- Window cleaning
- Basic site maintenance
- Bathroom cleaning
- Industrial cleaning
Check if the company has a standard service agreement, which will tell you what is included in your Janitor service and their prices. Most companies will have a set cleaning regimen, or packages in which they list all their default cleaning activities, while some create a customized regimen that is perfect for your business. Be sure that you completely understand the agreement, and the cleaning functions to ensure that you are satisfied with the finished work. A professional cleaning service should have many different ways to contact them with questions, concerns, or to get information on your invoices and services. A quality business will plan out all communication prior to hiring.
Lastly, if you are the least bit unsatisfied with the cleaning service that you choose; you are not getting what you are paying for. If the company you hired is not consistent with its work: rethink your contract with them, and look for a new service. Remember that one-hundred-percent satisfaction should be your most important expectation, and the first priority of any cleaning service that you choose.
