Office Cleaning Services New York

Have you started searching for an office cleaning service in New York?  You may find yourself somewhat overwhelmed with all the options the New York market can provide.  Things like how big your business is, what your needs are, and what’s important to you are things to focus on to help you find an appropriate office cleaning service in your area.

If your office is large, going with a larger cleaning corporation may be easier.  They will be able to offer discounts, and more employees to accommodate more services.

It’s also important to determine what your needs are.  Find a company that can accommodate your schedule.  Focus on companies that can arrange to have people there before, during or after business hours to best accommodate their clients.

You should also expect a wide variety of cleaning services, and the option to specialize services to their client’s specific needs.  These include:

  • Dusting and disinfecting
  • Cleaning glass surfaces,
  • Vacuuming
  • Cleaning all restrooms and common areas
  • Removal of trash and recyclables

It’s important to find a service that offers something your office specifically needs.

The type of cleaning products used is also something to consider.  Are they safe for the environment?  1st Class Cleaning uses Green Seal products, HEPA vacuums and filters to eliminate allergens in your office, as well as follows all LEED guidelines.  Make sure whoever you use isn’t using toxic chemicals that would aggravate any employee’s asthma or lung problems.

Also, use caution when working with smaller cleaning services as some are not bonded and don’t provide their employees with workers compensation.  This could be problematic if one of their workers is hurt in your office.  Be sure to research the implications of this scenario for you.

For your safety, and the safety of your employees, discuss security procedures with your potential cleaning services.  Who has access to your business’s keys?  How are they stored?  What is the procedure for handling alarm codes?  What is the screening process for the service’s employees?  How trustworthy are they?  Have they had any complaints of theft or excessive damage against them?  Checking reviews from customers and researching the business on the Better Business Bureau’s Web site is often an excellent way to get firsthand accounts of a potential service.  However, some – more reputable – businesses are very up front about their security procedures, and you should never avoid asking direct questions regarding their practices, especially if you found a few complaints against them.

One last thing to consider when finding the right office cleaning service for you is their price.  Are they offering below market value for their services, and why?  Some companies offer low prices to lure customers in, but skimp on their quality and customers end up spending more having their offices re-cleaned.
