Contract Commercial Cleaning

Just like our homes, our offices need to be cleaned on a regular basis. In fact, in many cases they need to cleaned more often. While one option is to have employees dispose of their own trash and divide up the rest of the cleaning tasks, many offices turn to commercial cleaners to take care of the problem for them.

Commercial cleaners are trained professionals who can quickly and efficiently clean an entire office. From vacuuming to washing out the toilet bowls, commercial cleaning is an excellent option for a busy office. It is important, however, to take care when selecting a company to provide your cleaning services.  Here are several tips:

  1. Be sure the cleaning company is bonded. This step is a great way to protect your company and your employee’s belongings. This extra vetting process helps ensure that the people cleaning your offices are honest.
  2. Do a complete walk through and clearly state your cleaning objectives. If you have special requests, security concerns or specific areas that you want addressed by the cleaning crew, be sure they are communicated to the company.
  3. Get quotes from several different companies to make sure you are getting the best price.
  4. Carefully read any contracts and thoroughly understand what services your commercial cleaning company will be providing.

Once you have selected a cleaning company, carefully review their work during the first few weeks of service. Be sure all of the areas covered by the contract are adequately cleaned. If you notice any areas of concern, address them immediately. It is a great idea to schedule a follow up meeting with the management of the cleaning company several weeks after they begin work.

After determining that you are satisfied with the cleaning company, the only area of concern is typically communication. Because cleaning crews come in late in the evening or even in the middle of the night, communicating special or seasonal cleaning needs with them can be difficult. Many office managers find that by placing a spiral notebook out each evening in a pre determined place, the cleaning crew can easily see any extra requests. They can also communicate to you any needs or concerns they have.

Commercial cleaning is a competitive business. Typically, the actual cleaning tasks covered are the same. Most cleaning crews will empty garbage cans, vacuum, clean bathrooms and kitchen area’s and keep the reception area spotless. At the end of the day, the best crew is the one who provides the best customer service and consistently completes their assigned tasks to your satisfaction. If one commercial cleaning company does not work out for you, try another until you find the best fit.  Many even offer special ‘trial’ periods at a cut rate that allow you to try them out.

A good commercial cleaning company can be a great asset to any business. By taking away menial and difficult cleaning tasks, commercial cleaning companies allow you to focus on what is truly important – everyday business.
