Hints and tips on choosing an office or commercial cleaning company

Hints and tips on choosing an office or commercial cleaning company

To make the right choice of cleaning company you need to ask the right questions. You have probably had experience of cleaning companies in the past good and bad, so to choose the right cleaning company next time, and to save you time and money, you need to make an informed decision. Do some research on the company and ask questions at your first meeting:- Are they experienced in running cleaning contracts?

Can you easily get references or testimonials from other companies that use them? Will there be a regular point of contact who is easy to get in touch with? Or will you have to wait days before anyone gets back to you? Do they support their cleaning staff and regularly carry out audits? Or do they gain the contract then leave the cleaning staff to it? What arrangements are made for holiday / sickness cover? Do the cleaning staff have to cover for each other? Do they train their staff in correct methods of cleaning? 

Or are the cleaning staff left to do it 'their way'?

Do the cleaning staff have enough materials to work with? Or is it a monthly delivery and if they run out do the cleaning staff have to make do? Is their Health & Safety up to date and ongoing? 

Or do they just tick the right boxes? Are they local to the area? Or do they cover a wide area and rely on one manager to cope with numerous contracts and staff?

Do they have a good track record and look after their customers? Or do they gain contracts then lose them after a short time? I hope the above helps in what to look out for when sourcing a cleaning company. We are not perfect but we are a genuine company who wants to supply a good quality cleaning service at a reasonable price. Your staff will work better and be more productive if they are in a clean and healthy environment.
