Hiring a commercial cleaning company to maintain your business has many benefits. A clean, uncluttered work environment can increase employee focus and work performance, and improve the overall brand image of a business. There are several things to consider before hiring professional cleaners. Putting in the time to research different companies before investing in their services will save you precious time and money.
References from other businesses that have already used the services of a cleaning company can be a great source of information. With a few good references you can see what kind of customer service a company provides and whether they are worth looking into or not. Obtaining references is a good business practice for both regular and specialty cleaning services.
There are many different types of services professional cleaning companies may provide, from daily maintenance services to specialty services. Businesses in certain industries such as the healthcare field need much more specialized services than regular business offices. When researching companies consider what type of cleaning service your business needs, whether you need specific services that can keep your business clean to industry standards, or just basic daily maintenance services. If you have an existing in-house cleaning staff, consider hiring a cleaning company that provides specialty cleaning services that your staff isn’t trained for or certified in.
Some companies offer emergency cleaning services. This type of service may include clean-up after damage caused by flooding, fire, or smoke. When looking into a company for every day cleaning services, hiring a company that also has the ability to provide post emergency cleaning services is a good investment decision for your business.
Whether you are hiring a professional cleaning company for regular services or a specialty services you want to make sure they are correctly trained and certified. According to the International Janitorial Cleaning Services Association there are several common certifications that professional cleaners may need. These may include Blood Borne Pathogens Certification, Mold Inspection & Remediation Services certification, Green Cleaning Company Certification, and Chemical Hazards Certification. Some certifications such as blood borne Pathogens certification have to be approved by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, or OSHA, a division of the U.S. Department of Labor. Hiring a company that is fully trained and certified will help ensure you receive quality cleaning services.
Some companies may offer free estimates for potential customers. One company in particular that offers free estimates is N & A Commercial Cleaners. They will come out and evaluate your business, your daily needs, your monthly needs, and your current expenditures. Taking advantage of this type of offer is a cost-effective way to research a company. Free estimates can be a great source of information about a company for both regular maintenance services and specialty services.
When looking to hire a commercial cleaning company for your business needs there are a few things to consider. Taking the time to research different companies before investing in their services can save you time and money. Knowing what type of cleaning services your business needs, including if your business is required to meet regulations in your industry will help you to determine which commercial cleaning company is right for your business needs.
