How To Find A Good Office Cleaning CompanyHow To Find A Good Office Cleaning Company

If you have a small business and you have every used a cleaning service, you already know that they are not the same. Some of the office cleaning companies you can hire are professional and do great work for you. However, if you have had to use several different companies over time, it is likely that at least one of the janitorial services has not lived up to your expectations.

If you have never hired a commercial cleaning company before, it can sometimes be difficult to tell the difference between a great company and one who you should probably avoid using. The tips listed below will help you with this decision. First of all, you need to make sure that the company has a reputation for being reliable and punctual. When your staff starts work each morning, they should not have to work around the cleaning people. Part of this is to make sure that the cleaning company has the ability to handle employee absences. It is a fact of life that employees will be sick from time to time. The company should be able to provide you with their employee absence rates. They should also be able to tell you how they handle people who cannot make it to work. They should have enough staff on standby to handle any kind of absences.

One way to find out about their reputation is to ask them for client referrals. Do not just get the referrals; you have to make sure to contact them. Speaking to former clients is a great way to find out how the company actually works. Find out if they are happy with their service and if any problems were handled appropriately. One of the best ways to ensure they did not just give you the name of one of their friends to talk to is to ask them what they do not like about the service. Nobody is perfect. If they tell you that there is absolutely nothing that they are unhappy about, you should be very suspicious.

You should also find out about how they dispose of any material taken from the office. There should be standard procedures set up for disposing of waste and for recycling the appropriate articles. They may also have other programs for disposing of other items that are of no use, but should not be thrown in the trash.

It is also important that you can trust your cleaning company. Many times if the cleaners handle their duties overnight, they will be completely alone in your office. Any company you are considering should be able to convince you that they have taken steps to hire staff that can be trusted. They should also have procedures in place to handle any complaints that you have regarding issues of trustworthiness. The final thing you should use when trying to find a quality cleaning company are the procedures they use to train their staff. The more training they can show you; the more likely they are to have the ability to provide you with quality services.
