Maintaining a clean and sanitary office environment is essential to the success of your business. Most companies will hire a professional cleaning service to take care of this rather than hiring a full-time janitor. A cleaning service will usually come in after hours, cleaning all areas of your office. You'll probably find several office cleaning companies in your city, so you'll have to choose the one that's right for you. Though you may be looking to save money, the company with the lowest cost isn't always the best deal.
- Research cleaning companies in your area and find out what services they offer compared to what services you are seeking.
- Always ask for proof of insurance as this will protect you as well as them from unexpected mishaps including damages to your belongings as well as employee theft.
3. Established vs New
- The amount of time a cleaning company has been in business can be a fact you may want to consider BUT studies have shown that while a newer company may have a few flaws that they may need to work out in the beginning they are usually more apt to try harder to cater to client needs because they are trying to gain and keep more clients.
4. Price ?
- As we all know every company has that budget to stick to and some budgets are smaller than others but if you choose a cheap cleaning company you could get what you pay for. Cheap cleaners most of the time are not properly insured and have a high tendency to cut corners or may oftentimes employ illegally.
5. Franchise vs Privately Owned
- Janitorial Franchises are popping up everywhere nowadays and where companies have had some luck hiring them it is important to know that a lot of the time if you use a franchise you "the client" can be considered"just another contract" Privately owned and operated cleaning companies tend to value your business more because they usually have a lot fewer clients and to loose your business could be a huge loss for the company. Another thing to consider when hiring privately owned is the relationship. Franchise relationships are never as close because of the amount of clients the serve.
