How to Hire the Right Commercial Cleaning Services

Dirty and untidy businesses are noticeable to customers, as well as important clients   How your business presents itself can speak volumes about who the company is, and a lot about the people in charge.  Although it might be time consuming, taking the time to find the right commercial cleaning company for your business will not only save you time and money, but will lead to far fewer headaches down the line.

If you are looking into hiring a commercial cleaning service for your company there might be some factors you want to consider.  Whether you are looking on a bulletin board, the phonebook, the internet, or the newspaper, finding a qualified, professional cleaning service may prove difficult.  But if you know what to look for, and put the time into the search, as you would any important decision, you will end up with the right qualified cleaning company that will help take your business to new levels of professionalism.

There are two types of companies offering janitorial services: large chains, and smaller, privately-owned companies.  Each type of company has its pros and cons.   Large cleaning companies may offer better equipment and usually more efficient services, but sometimes they can be quite expensive.  Smaller commercial cleaning companies, on the other hand, can often be less expensive, may or may not do the same quality work, and sometimes offer more custom services.  To make the best decision for your company, you first need to understand your cleaning needs before contacting any company to find out the best fit.

Another important step in finding a commercial cleaning service is checking references.  This can be a sure-fire way to hear first hand what kind of company this is, and what kind of services they offer.  Make sure when in the evaluation process that you ask for references, and check them out thoroughly.  Another step you can take to protect yourself would be to ask the cleaning company if they offer insurance.  Many commercial cleaning companies offer certified bond insurance, which is insurance money set aside to be used in case of broken, damaged, or lost property of their clients.  Make sure when you’re in the evaluation process that they verify proof of their certified bond insurance.

The final step of the evaluation is finalizing a contract together.  Make sure that everything that you had discussed and agreed upon is in the contract, including how often, and to what extent, they will be rendering their services.  Most importantly, make sure that you make provisions in the contract, to be able to drop the service, if you do not find they have lived up to their end of the bargain.  All in all, this may seem like a complicated process, but after you have found the right company, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that you did everything necessary to hire the right professional cleaning service for your business.
