As a business owner you may not have enough time to take care of work-space. Cleaning the entire office is quite a demanding task that requires skills along with patience. Everyone desires a spotless and hygienic place to work, and for this reason, one of the ideal options is to hire professionals for cleaning the office more thoroughly and for less than you can in-house. A clean space that is free of grime and allergens leaves a good impression of your business on others. At times, due to urgency, people make mistakes while hiring a cleaning company, so here are a few tips to help you hire the best cleaning company possible…
Paying Too Much Attention to the Cost
Often business owners sacrifice quality by deciding to go cheap. Of course you should stay within your budget, but at the same time, you should not focus too much on the price. When shopping for office cleaners obtain quotes from various companies and compare the specific each one offers. The devil is isn’t in the details and what is left out of the least expensive contracts.
Not Checking Their Licenses/Certifications
Make sure to check the company’s certifications because there are numerous scam businesses out there. Verifying all the vital documents before finalizing a decision is critical. Proper certification as well as their license is a sign that shows they can perform the tasks professionally and safely. Ask them about their insurance, their experience, their area of specialization, certification, and license.
Failing to Contact Their References
References can speak to the reliability, quality, and experience of the cleaning company you intend to hire. It doesn’t matter what type of services a person is looking for. The references can let you know about the the companies level of service. In addition, you can go online to check client reviews.
Making Sure They Have Liability Insurance Coverage
Your cleaning company can be held responsible for any accidents that happen while they are cleaning your property if they have liability insurance coverage. An uninsured cleaning company may not have the funds to pay for any damaged items or any other harm that comes from their employees.
Failing to Read and Understand the Contract
Before signing the contract, ensure you read and understand everything in the contract. Also, make sure the cleaning service details are appropriately outlined in an agreement, like payment methods, date of completion, and more. Failing to go through the contract to lead to a massive loss.
Know the Cleaning Company’s Specialization
When you are looking for an office cleaning service, make sure you find a cleaning service who’s niche is for office cleaning. There are cleaning companies specialized in hotel cleaning, industrial site cleaning, or restaurant cleaning but that may not be the best fit for you.
Know Which Staff Will Be Constantly Cleaning Your Office
You do not want to have a steady flow of new people in and out of your offices. Having the same cleaning crew allows them to fulfill your specific requests, resulting in a more thorough clean. Many cleaning services employ floaters, or other trained employees that fill in for the regular team is out for various reasons. Your regular team will need some off time here and there but you want them at your facility as much as possible.
Hiring a Company That Doesn’t Have Surety Bonding
Janitorial service surety bonds are a type of business service bond intended for a residential or commercial cleaning company. With this bond in place, you are protected from losses incurred as a result of employee theft committed by employees while engaged in cleaning services. Hire a cleaning service that carries a surety bond because most office cleaning is done when management and staff are gone.
By avoiding these mistakes, you will be able to find a reliable cleaning company, and also one who will give you the results that you were expecting.
