What you need to know about commercial cleaning services

If you have decided to hire a commercial cleaning service there are many factors to consider—especially with so many to choose from. Keep in mind, there are several factors to consider when finding one that is right for you (e.g. professionalism, cost, safety, services provided, etc.). Below are key points to help you find the right service.

About the Company

Nobody wants an unprofessional cleaning service yet one that doesn’t have the experience in the industry. Learn about the company’s experience, long-standing reputation and relationships they have built over the years. Other items to consider regarding the company background include:

  • How long has the company been in business?

  • What is the turnover rate of their employees?

  • Does the company practice sustainability with the services they provide?

  • What are the company values?

Safety and Training

Hiring a commercial cleaning service that is properly trained and certified is the best way to keep your facility safe and healthy for everyone who works there. Some of the questions to consider when exploring a commercial cleaning company’s safety and training program include:

  • Are all the employees familiar with hazardous substances?

  • Are they trained to use all green cleaning products?

  • Do they have emergency and first aid training?

  • What type of training does the company have in place? (e.g. videos, on-site training, up-to-date manuals, seminars for certification, etc.

  • Do all employees on-site have the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)?

Services Provided

Not all cleaning services are alike, so it’s important to know what exactly you’re getting when you hire one. A commercial cleaning service that not only helps you with all your janitorial needs but also provides end-to-end solutions such as: maintenance, painting, carpet care, plumbing, etc. is likely going to be at the top of your list. Making a list of all your cleaning needs and other services you foresee in the future will help if the company is right for you and one that is helping to streamline your operation and fulfill all your needs.

You want a service that is trustworthy and one that you can count on in any situation and at any time. Keep in mind your budget but ultimately, you want to hire a better cleaning service—it will pay for itself.
