5 things you should look for in an office cleaning company
When it comes to hiring an office cleaning company it is important to know what to look for. You no doubt want the most professional, cost effective service to ensure that you are getting the best deal.
So whether you are looking for a new office cleaning services provider or are considering switching from your current cleaning company, these are the factors that are worth consideration:
1. Can the company offer flexibility and quality assurance?
Often a concern for employers is that cleaners may disrupt their staff if cleaning during the working day. Professional office cleaners will generally work outside office hours to ensure minimal disruption to your team. It is important also, that the company is able to offer assurance that the service they provide will meet professional standards, and be able to prove the quality of their work.
The company should also acknowledge that every office environment and requirements are different and be willing and able to offer different contract types to accommodate this.
They should also have a policy in place to ensure customer satisfaction is at the forefront of their minds. Another good idea is to check out the range of services that a cleaning company offers and make sure it fits with what you had in mind for your business.
2. Do they offer environmentally friendly products?
More and more businesses are trying to find ways to reduce their carbon footprint and become more sensitive to environmental issues. One of the ways they can do so is by ensuring the cleaning company has a green cleaning service, which uses environmentally friendly cleaning products and is committed to developing environmentally friendly practices, such as, employing cleaning operatives within close proximity to their clients premises to reduce the need for cars and the use of public transport.
3. Can they give you positive reviews and testimonials?
A reputable and experienced cleaning company should be able to provide a number of positive testimonials from satisfied clients both past and present. You also may wish to look at how the cleaning company responds to clients who express any dissatisfaction with their service, are they quick to respond and offer a resolution?
4. Do they offer value for money?
A significant role for any employer is to ensure they always achieve the best value for money for the services they outsource. Obtaining and comparing several quotes will help you to understand the different levels of service and associated costs, and gain a better understanding of how much you should be paying, and where you can get a good deal without sacrificing quality and professionalism in the process.
5. Do they invest in their staff?
A professional office cleaning service cannot exist without teams of excellent cleaning staff. Look out for assurances that the company invests time and money into training their staff and looking after them to ensure a consistent service standard for each and every job they do.
