Office Cleaning Checklist….What Your Cleaners Should Do

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

When you pay for an office cleaning service, you want to get what you pay for.  Commercial cleaning providers will often supply a checklist of services so you can choose how much or how little they do.  With Maintenance One, we perform a 32-Step Cleaning Service even on our most basic plans!

If you don’t have a checklist provided by your company, you can use ours to find out how thorough your current cleaning company is. We’ve been in the cleaning business a long time and know that our competitors don’t even come close to providing the service and value that we do.
