So you have decided you need to take on a cleaning team for your office/property? It’s important for you to make sure you find an agency that works for you, or helps you understand exactly what you need. Here are a few questions you may want to raise or ask yourself when you have a new potential cleaning company ready to work with you.
How did you find out about the company?
It’s been proven time and time again that when a company is referred to you by a trusted source, you are far more likely to have a successful business relationship. If a company has not been referred to you, or you do not have any contacts with previous clients, see which review sites they are signed up to and what the general reception to their services have previously been.
How much experience do they have?
It’s important to question the experience the potential company have in cleaning properties, but more importantly what areas they have experience in. It would be beneficial to think of some office spaces that have similar requirements to your place of business so you can locate cleaning companies that have experience in the areas you require.
What hours do they operate in?
Most cleaning companies will operate outside of office hours, but it is important to clarify so you will not be disturbed by cleaners. It’s also important to ask if they will be flexible in their working hours to insure you are provided with the service that best suits you?
Do they deep clean?
Many cleaning companies will be hired to provide a cosmetic clean to their work space, this tends to be a cheaper service and takes less time to perform. However, it may not be suited to your place of business and the hygiene standards you wish to follow. Request information on the standards of cleaning they provide, how it is maintained and what different packages they offer.
Lastly, it’s always a good idea to find out more about how a cleaning company selects their staff, which checks are run on said staff and who manages them. You want to insure that any cleaning companies are able to provide reviews of their staff and how they work.
Finding a cleaning company that works for you is important and it is a service that should be completely moulded to your needs. Hopefully some of the above will help you find the cleaning service that is right for you.
