Focus on value, not cost
There are many commercial cleaners to choose from. There are many things to take into consideration before you make a decision about your commercial cleaning service provider. It often boils down to cost and effectiveness. Although it is challenging to see beyond price, janitorial costs shouldn’t be the sole factor that influences your decision. After you have found the service you require, you should examine the price when searching for a professional cleaning company. Although this can be a time-consuming and difficult task, with the right information you can find a service that suits your needs and budget. What should you look for in the overcrowded commercial cleaning service market?
Sometimes a murky bid can indicate poor business practices
A critical factor in finding an effective commercial cleaning company is having quotes that are easy to compare apples to apple style. Many commercial cleaning companies don’t clearly price their services. If you receive a quote that is confusing or unclear, it is likely that the prospective cleaning company is not experienced enough to do business with you. To make informed decisions, it is important to understand exactly what you will be paying and how it was calculated. A quote is nothing more than a suggestion. It doesn’t tell you what you will get or how much you will pay. Your prospective cleaning company won’t give you clear information or a janitorial bid if they don’t provide this.
Communication is key
People are the backbone of commercial cleaning. They will make mistakes. This is a part of everyday life. These issues are what makes a company great. The key to dealing with problems before they spiral out of control is real-time communication so that they can be addressed and smoothed over quickly. We see too many small problems that go unchecked become costly and time-consuming issues. It is time to look for a new service provider if your janitorial company doesn’t communicate with you about operations or problems.
Cheap Versus Value
We have already mentioned that people are the backbone of every service company, commercial or not, and this is true for commercial cleaning as well. Commercial cleaning companies should provide their staff with fair compensation, competitive benefits, and incentive programs. This will ensure that you receive consistent, high-quality service. It’s easy to believe that cleaning workers are not skilled and shouldn’t be paid well.
It is impossible to be more wrong. Commercial cleaning is a job that doesn’t require formal education. However, it requires extensive training and manual labor. This can explain the high turnover rate in this industry. This can be partly due to companies’ inability to recognize that staff must feel valued and treated as hardworking employees.
If your company isn’t offering competitive pay, their staff is likely to perform below industry standards, and you’ll be faced with the constant revolving door of new employees that will further hurt the quality of your service and the value of what you are getting. While it is true that companies who pay more will end up costing more, you’ll get a cleaner, more consistent, and better quality clean.
Security is a Paramount Concern
Most cleaning companies work late at night so it is important to trust the people who are working in your building. Your prospective cleaning company must take background and screening checks seriously. This includes a thorough criminal background check, drug testing on multiple panels, and safety training for your specific building. Safety should be a top priority in any facility. You should not trust people working in your facility. It is time to look for companies that take safety and security seriously.
Green Cleaning is More Than A Buzzword
Are you looking for eco-friendly cleaning solutions? A company may make many promises to you in order to gain your business. Cleaning companies are trying to gain your business with ‘green cleaning’.
This is the most common tactic that we see. Green cleaning isn’t just a buzzword that you can add in front of every service, there is a lot that goes into providing an environmentally responsible service that works to provide a solid clean while keeping health in mind. You can do this by using fewer chemicals, recycling, water-saving equipment, and cleaning methods that preserve indoor air quality.
Ask your potential cleaning service to demonstrate their commitment to green cleaning. Actions speak louder than words.
Not everyone is cut out for the job
Contrary to popular belief, commercial cleaning isn’t a job that you can pick up on the go. The cleaning staff is not equipped to deliver a high-quality service in a timely manner without proper industry and general training. This is particularly true for buildings with specific requirements. Training that is specific to an industry can be as valuable as general training. There are many types of cleaning that you might need, such as office cleaning, industrial cleaning, and office disinfection. Different types of work require different skills. Training programs are a key element of commercial cleaning company success.
The right equipment for the job
You need the right equipment to do the job. As the old saying goes, outdated or broken equipment is not the best equipment. Commercial cleaning equipment is not the only area where scientific innovation has advanced at an incredible rate. Many of these innovations have practical applications that reduce waste, improve cleaning efficiency and increase efficiency. Multi-filtration HEPA vacuums are lighter than other models, making them more user-friendly and easier to use. These advances are not available to all companies, so they won’t be able to offer high-quality service.
Accountability means fewer mistakes
Because mistakes can lead to more headaches for everyone, the best companies will strive to minimize them. Accountability is key to this. A checklist, task list, or spec sheet is a common tool that Facility Managers use to set clear expectations for their staff. It helps everyone stay on track and makes it clear what your expectations are.
Success is never an accident
It is not an accident that you are successful. The most efficient commercial cleaning companies make every effort to improve their services and plan for the future. It means using the most effective cleaning equipment and techniques before they become industry standards. It is difficult to be a leader in a highly competitive market. To be competitive in a difficult market, many commercial cleaning companies provide affordable cleaning services.
