Business Cleaning Services

If you are considering hiring a business cleaning service, you may be in for a surprise. Take a quick walk around your office and note the areas you think a cleaning service will cover for you.  Your list will probably look something like this:

  1. Empty trash
  2. Vacuum
  3. Clean bathroom
  4. Clean break room

These are the mundane, day-to-day, cleaning chores you probably don’t have the time or desire to take care of yourself.

It is true that simple janitorial services are a large part of what business-cleaning services do. They will do everything on your list, helping you maintain a clean, sanitary and professional office for your employees and clients.

What you don’t realize is that truly professional business cleaning services encompasses so much more than your simple list.  Below is a list of the ‘extras’ you can look for in a cleaning company. Some of these may not be daily tasks, but they are cleaning chores that must be done from time to time, so hire a cleaning company that can do it all for you.

  1. Carpet cleaning:  It isn’t enough to simply vacuum the carpet each night. Eventually those high traffic areas will begin to show the wear and tear of constant movement. A good business cleaning service will periodically steam clean your carpets to keep them fresh and professional looking.
  2. Floor cleaning:  break rooms, entrances and other areas of your office may have linoleum, tile or ceramic floors. Periodically, these areas need a little bit of extra attention. Be sure your cleaning service can handle the semi-annual (or more often) maintenance of your floors and will wax, buff or strip them when needed
  3. Room with a view:  That beautiful corner office won’t be so beautiful if the window is dingy and grimy.  Professional cleaning crews will properly clean and maintain the windows in your office to ensure they remain crystal clear.
  4. Construction clean up:  from time to time, you may find the need to reconfigure your current office space. From adding walls to create offices to building cubicles for a bull pit, construction is messy. Your cleaning service should be able to assist you with the additional tasks construction can bring.

As you can see, professional business cleaning services are about much more then simply dusting. Your cleaning crew can, and should, address all of your cleaning needs. From seasonal concerns like salt and mud, to sprucing up the office for an important visit from a client, be sure your cleaning service will be there for you when and how you need them.

Carefully interview several professional crews to determine how well they will fit the needs of your particular office. Be sure to thoroughly discuss your particular needs with the crew. The contract should clearly state what the cleaning crew is responsible for. It’s a great idea to request a monthly walk through by management to ensure that your cleaning crew continues to perform as requested.
