Some cleaning companies will price low in an attempt to win your business, only to quickly realize that such rock bottom pricing is simply unsustainable. However getting a good deal on your janitorial, cleaning and maintenance services is critical. The right company will lighten your load and keep you on budget. But the wrong company can cost you money and time. How do you get the best deal from your commercial cleaning Company??
Often times a janitorial company may leave things purposely lacking exactness and accuracy. It can be really challenging to compare bids. You need to give a precise description of your needs. The janitorial service will ask for more money or add fees later if you are asking for service not included in the original bid. If the l janitorial service does not fully understand your needs the cost may upend your budget. Size of your facility, frequency of service, complexity, building layout and your specific cleaning needs are a few factors that affect pricing of commercial cleaning services.
Price and Value
The lowest janitorial price is not necessarily the best value. A facility manager needs to be concerned if a cheap cleaning services is below average then the service is not cheap at all. A bad janitorial service can cost you customers, tenants and your reputation. Your goal should always be to get the best clean for the best price. Check your cleaning service for sending responsible people to your facility, effective training of the workers, green cleaning choices and guaranteed responsiveness.
Super Low Bid
If something is too good to be true, it probably is, a super low bid can be enticing. Low quotes can be a sign of problems. Be cautious of the janitorial service using you as a learning facility and sometimes cheap janitorial service can be a sign of using illegal workers. However you need to be aware that just because someone bids high does not mean you are getting quality services. So do not base your decision on hiring a janitorial service on price alone.
Number one is an undocumented worker: An undocumented worker is an individual that is working off the payroll OR an individual that has not furnished to their employer the necessary identification to verify their legal status or authorization to work. Number two is the illegal classification of workers as independent contractor. Dishonest janitorial companies illegally classify workers to sidestep the legal requirements one has when having employees like payroll taxes, benefits and all of the other things businesses must provide for legal employees. If your bid is too low theses practices may be in play. When a janitorial service provider is willing to take shortcuts with their business they certainly are not thinking about protecting your business.
Real Value at a Fair Price
Choosing a reputable professional, trusted commercial cleaning company gives you the best promise of partnering with a company that will deliver on both real value and their promises of good service. More experienced companies can do more for less. Janitorial professionals understand through experience where you can and where you cannot reduce services. As a facility manager you need to decide how low is livable and how to construct a spec to keep your facility running smoothly, you tenants satisfied, your building protected and your budget intact. It is a good idea to compare quotes in a substantive way, look at the number quotes side by side to determine value.
