Choosing The Right Cleaning Company For Your Business


Are you tidying up after your colleagues or employees? Could your time be better spent? Then it’s probably time to call in the professionals.

With so many Cleaning Services out there from Janitor services to  ‘Lady with a Mop’ choosing the right Cleaning Company for your business can seem over-whelming and very time consuming. However, by doing your research it can make the process a lot easier. It’s important to be able to pin-point which service is right for your business. A lady with a mop isn’t necessarily going to be the right choice for a industrial business where machine cleaning is needed on a day to day basis. A mop just isn’t going to cut it, but a scrubber dryer machine  will dramatically reduce time and save your business money.’

Here are some tips to consider when choosing the right cleaning service for your company:-


This really is time well spent. While using the first company you stumble across may seem like an easy option, more than often this can lead to a poor outcome. You could find yourself tied into an expensive contract with a poor service. So, before you pick up the phone check online reviews to establish how their customers rate the service they provide.

Access Your Business Requirements

What exactly do you think your business needs? The first thing you should do is make a list, as you don’t want to be sold any unnecessary extras if you have a set budget. Maybe have a little walk around the office. A handy tip would be to invest in central bins saving time and money and a step towards your environmental stamp. You need to ask yourself, are you looking for a ‘like for like’ quote based on the service you already receive, or fresh new ideas which could possible help the business economically?

The Questions That Needs Answering

Accreditations are another important consideration. A professional cleaning company should be able to provide you with recognised, established documents. Do they have a good satisfaction track record with their Customers? Remember, an established cleaning provider will have procedures and systems in place to deliver an effective service.

How important is Health & Safety to a perspective new provider – it should be paramount and the documentation readily available for inspection.

Lastly, but definitely not least, are they local to you? This is vital and will ensure a speedy response and effective support to you and your business.

Finally, Getting A Quote

Nowadays companies will offer quotes via their Website by submitting a form. I would suggest placing some time aside for companies to come in and visit your business so they can evaluate the amount of work, so you get accurate quotes from the outset.  It is also nice to meet the people you are about to put your trust in. Always compare two or three quotations, then the choice is yours and you can feel confident in knowing you did research.

Doing the above research doesn’t have to be a complicated task and could end up saving you a lot of time and effort in the long term.
