If you have a new commercial property and you have realized that cleaning it on your own or with the help of staff isn't going to work, you need to hire a commercial cleaning service. You want to find an efficient company with affordable costs.
There are so many benefits to having professionals do your cleaning. The job will be professionally completed each week to sanitize and clean the space, and you just have to show up to work for the week. Here are some of the things to discuss with the cleaning company team managers when getting quotes.
Rates and Packages
Ask about the rates and packages for the cleaning services that you need. You want to know:
- What cleaning services are included
- How much time it will take for the cleaning services
- How frequently the office space will be cleaned
- Who provides the cleaning products and supplies
- What forms of payment are accepted
If there is a big discrepancy between different cleaning companies you will want to ask each company how they came up with their cost. This can help you weed out inexperienced companies that are just trying to get the job, or companies that are overcharging for their services.
Employee Screening and Information
The employees that work for the commercial cleaning company are going to be in your business. You want to know if the cleaning company does the following:
- Background checks
- Previous employment history screening
- New hire orientation and training
- Require a physical before starting employment
Ask how they pick their employees and what the employee turnover rate is so you have an idea of who will be in the building.
Ask the cleaning company what type of insurance coverage they have for their staff and employees. You want to know that they cover their own employees on the job. Talk with your insurance provider as well to make sure you don't need additional coverage for the cleaning crew.
Know in advance how many times a week or month you will expect the cleaning services and find a company that can fit you into the rotation. The size of your building, the type of business you do, and how often you need the space cleaned may affect how often you need the cleaning services.
A professional cleaning company takes the stress of having to clean your space off your shoulders and allows you to focus on running the business while they focus on getting the space properly cleaned. Get a few different quotes and get into a rotation to have a clean professional space today.
