Hiring a professional corporate cleaning company is a big decision. Keeping your business clean is imperative for both aesthetic and health and safety reasons, but you might well have a plethora of individuals or businesses to hire who offer the same basic services.
Here are the key questions you should ask prospective contractors –and your own company – to ensure you’re getting the best cleaning service:
You should expect all professional cleaning companies to carry liability insurance. This way, if your possessions or property become damaged during the process of cleaning, the company’s insurance will reimburse you, hassle free. Hiring a company without insurance is not advisable, as there is no assurance that they could pay for any damages you may incur.
As when hiring anybody to perform any service, you must workout the details of payment beforehand. Companies will provide you an estimated cost based on the number of hours needed to do the job. If you are concerned about overage costs, you can set a hard time limit. If you wish to employ a cleaning company to do regular jobs, many companies will offer a flat rate based on the time and cost of the first or first few jobs they did for you.
Asking for a task list (or giving them one) of the tasks that need to be done will clearly communicate what you expect them to do.
Most every company will bring their own tools (mops,vacuums, etc.), but not all bring all their own supplies (such as glass cleaners, disinfectants, and so on). Make sure to ask them beforehand about this and that any supplies they use are to your standards, ie: environmentally friendly.
