Your offices are your face to the world. Keeping them clean and presentable can help you to put your best foot forward. Many businesses whether they are big or small choose to outsource their office janitorial to a commercial janitorial cleaning company to free up their employees to handle what they do best.
The question arises though how do you choose a janitorial provider you can trust with the keys to your Santa Clarita office. Finding a janitorial cleaning service you can trust to keep your office clean while not cleaning you out can be difficult. There are some very important questions you can need to ask to find a commercial cleaning service that you can trust and that will do a great job for you.
Five things you should ask your commercial cleaning services provider:
Is your business bonded and insured?
A bond shows that the service cares, and is interested in the safety of your company’s possessions. It also shows that they are willing to hire the best and most honest employees. It also insures that all of the services staff is legal to work in this country, which also protects you, the client.
How long have they been providing janitorial services?
There is certainly nothing wrong with a company that is new, everyone starts out somewhere. But a cleaner that has been in business at least five years will have an established track record of trust and reliability.
What hours are you available to clean?
Find a company that does the cleaning within your time frame, not the other way around. The service provider should be willing to clean during business hours (with a day-porter) or do the regular cleaning after business hours depending on your needs.
What type of services do you provide? What types of facilities do you clean? Do they use green cleaning supplies?
Not all companies handle all cleaning services. Most companies will do basic janitorial work. But not all can do carpet cleaning, strip / wax floors and pressure washing. After determining your needs it may be best to find a company that meets all your needs. The last thing you need is to manage multiple commercial janitorial services. On the other hand if you need a limited set of cleaning services then you want to pay accordingly.
Also considers the type of facility you need cleaned. There is a difference in cleaning a restaurant compared to a medical building or office cleaning compared to an industrial facility. And a commercial space requires commercial cleaning services not house cleaners or maid services. Cleaning systems, tools, supplies and techniques differ greatly based on the application. Choose a provider familiar with your type of business and building to get the best result.
How do you charge for your janitorial services?
Some janitorial companies may charge per hour or even per job. Be sure to only work with companies that give you a quote ahead of time in writing. Make sure they know the type and size of your facility. Be very clear on what services you need from the cleaning business so you get what you need at a fair price. This will minimize miscommunications in the future and will ensure that your cleaning needs are met.
