Keeping your business clean and sanitary is not only good for your employees, but is crucial for customers and clients who visit your store or office. It is often this first impression that determines the success of your business.
Many businesses owners prefer hiring a professional cleaning company for the many benefits including the elimination of employee taxes, health and training costs. After all, you get a professional job and can write it off as a business expense. It’s a win-win, if you hire the right commercial cleaning service.
Here’s a list of mistakes you can avoid to make sure you choose the right cleaning service for your business…
The first mistake you can make when choosing a commercial cleaning company is hiring the service with the lowest cost. These companies are often not the best deal because they may cut corners, use cheaper cleaning products and pay lower wages which lead to higher turnover rates. A reputable commercial cleaning service will visit your business and understand your business needs before supplying a service quote.
Another mistake is not understanding the service contract. Many companies will want a signed contract which may lock you into their service for 12 months or more. Every contract should have reasonable recourse in case you’re not happy with the service. To protect yourself, look for a service offering a trial period or a month-to-month contract that lists the specific services performed.
Other mistakes are somewhat obvious, but are very important and should be listed.
First, you should always consider the company’s experience. A company with a longer history will have training programs and systems in place for a variety of business environments. They will also have the experience to handle unique and even unusual cleaning problems.
And finally, ask for references and proof of insurance. A reputable company will always provide references and insurance documents.
By avoiding these mistakes you can be sure to find a local cleaning company in your area that you can depend on, in all likelihood, for the life of your business.
