Who loves a dirty and untidy office? No one, right? People certainly like cleanliness, but it can be quite difficult to clean everything by yourself. Cleaning your own office space is an arduous task. Not only does it keep your office spotless, but it also increases employee productivity, as well as, the health and safety of your business.

Achieving the desired result when it comes to cleaning is quite hard if you do it on your own. That’s why some businesses hire professional cleaners to get the job done and give them some free time to do more important tasks. Even so, not all professional cleaners are focused on cleaning every nook and cranny. Some are just doing the bare minimum since you paid for their services. To ensure you get your money’s worth, we listed below some factors to consider before hiring a professional commercial cleaning company.

Things to consider when looking for Professional Cleaners

Identify what kind of cleaning service you need.

Before you can decide which professional cleaner to hire, you first need to identify what kind of cleaning services you are looking for. Not every company has the same needs, and most professional cleaners have one or two specializations. Making them flexible enough to tailor to your needs.

For small businesses in a small building, you are usually the person who oversees the cleaning. Additionally, you’ll only need floor cleaning, carpet cleaning, and power scrubs. However, owning a large business is different. It may also require large amounts of dusting and window cleaning. Make sure your company’s needs are met, and then check if the relevant company offers these services. Make a basic list of what you need to be clear about what you expect from your cleaning professional.

Ask people for recommendations

The best people to ask for recommendations are family members, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Personal recommendations are more reliable compared to social media reviews and more. These people will definitely not lie to you about something like this unless, of course, they have a grudge against you.

Look at reviews from previous/present clients

Another way to look for reviews is by searching online through websites like Google, Yelp, the BBB, and other local review sites in your area. And as you look at those reviews make sure to look for reviews with positive feedback on the company’s trustworthiness, professionalism, punctuality, availability, work ethic, and most importantly cleaning skills. Don’t just rely on reviews from the company’s website, check out third-party review sites as well.

Make sure they are fully bonded and insured

You will find that almost all professional cleaning service companies are bonded and insured, but the real question is are you also protected as an owner of the establishment? Professional cleaning services are only bonded and insured to protect themselves from theft by the employees or when an employee gets injured during work hours.

Professional cleaners should have general liability insurance because accidents during work are not unavoidable. Some of their workers may break a window or damage equipment needed for you to perform work. You can ask for their certificate of coverage to know if you are protected as the owner as well. If it doesn’t protect you, it usually costs only a few dollars and covers medical care and lost wages if your cleaners get injured in your office.

List down all your candidates and compare costs

It isn’t new to everyone’s ears that these kinds of expenses have a budget, so making sure you stay on budget while getting the desired results is a tricky decision. That’s why researching for all the possible professional cleaning companies that match your needs and listing down their offers is a must. Combining this with the reviews you have read and the insurance coverage they offer then you’re most likely going to hire the best professional cleaning company for your business.

Check if they are licensed and offer safety 

Aside from checking if they are bonded and insured, also check if they are licensed. Make sure the company has highly skilled cleaners. Must be certified for WHMIS, PPE, construction safety training system, first aid, and all the necessary licenses. When hiring a professional cleaning company, people do not consider safety precautions most of the time, that’s why accidents happen once in a while. Also, consider if the cleaners of the company are not certified for safety, they can endanger many lives such as your employees or people around your area. Therefore, all safety certifications must be checked beforehand.

Check their location

All the requirements above may be met by one professional cleaning company, but are you sure you want to hire a company which is far away from your place? Of course, you wouldn’t want to choose a company that isn’t in the vicinity of your office. One, you cannot call them whenever you need their services. Two, they are at your place in a matter of seconds. So, avoid hiring those companies located far away from your office, as it would be hard for them to reach your office immediately.

Schedule a meet and greet

Once everything’s A-okay, then it’s time to meet the whole team that would be responsible for making your office spotless. It’s not the best idea to hire the company as soon as you think they are a perfect match. Cleaning an office is a big responsibility and you need to make sure you hire the right people for the job. Schedule a meeting with your team in advance and show your team where you need their service. This meeting will help eliminate confusion on either side. It also helps you get a clearer picture of your budget and how long it will take.
