3 Time-Saving Tips to Ensure You Get the Best Cleaning Service
Is your Cleaning Provider Saving You Time?
Time is precious, and often, there are simply not enough hours in the day to get everything done. With so many priorities to juggle, endless interruptions, not to mention meeting after meeting, time just disappears and before you know it, it’s the end of the day!
While strong organisational skills and prioritisation are key in the business world, it’s equally important to put your trust in your vendors when it matters most. Having vendors that you trust and that provide a dependable service will save you time. And the same can be said for your cleaning provider.
Retaining confidence in your cleaning provider plays a crucial role in the successful running of a business. After all, you need to be able to lean on them when your time requires focus elsewhere. Keeping your eye on the ball is one thing, but it’s hard to do that when you’re juggling 10 balls at once.
A Responsive Cleaning Provider Will Save you Time
What do we mean? Well, believing in your cleaning provider to provide a reliable, timely and professional service means you no longer have to worry about that aspect of your business. Instead, the onus falls on the professionals, saving you time in the long run.
Of course, it takes time to build trust with a cleaning provider, so if you are solely accountable for managing your cleaning company, and you want to make sure you’re getting the best out of them… we’ve put together a list of three recommendations to help you achieve this.
These three tips will help ensure a stress-free and trustworthy relationship.
Clarity is Key
Should a cleaning issue arise, or you want to check the details of your contract, or perhaps even change the time or day of your scheduled clean… it’s vital you know who to contact and have the relevant and up-to-date contact details to hand. If you’re able to speak with a staff member face-to-face, even better, but often time can be saved with a simple phone call.
What you don’t want to experience is a delayed response. Should you have a pressing issue, it needs to be dealt with asap. So, when choosing your cleaning provider, ensure you ask how long it will take them to respond to an urgent query and who the best port of call is.
Well defined communication paths are a must in business and should not be optional. After all, clarity is key when it comes to saving time.
Trust is a Must
Your cleaning provider is the expert when it comes to cleaning, so let them do the strategising. As much as you might like to be in control, trusting that your provider knows best will save you ample amounts of time in the long run.
Remember you bought in your cleaning provider to help, so let them do precisely that. Allow your contract cleaner to ease your capacity by choosing their order of service and letting them take control so you can gain a competitive advantage with premises that look fantastic all of the time.
Changing provider can take up a lot of your time, time that would be better spent focusing on other more pressing elements of your business… so what can you do about it? Many of us learn from our mistakes, and one common mistake is to sign up with the first provider you find, thinking it’ll save time. This sometimes can go in your favour, but more often than not it will backfire, costing you more time in the long run.
As with everything, finding the right partnership comes with research and perseverance. Investing time into locating the right cleaning provider at the start of your journey is a better way of tackling the situation, after all long-term partnerships are usually the most priceless. Once you’ve got to know your cleaning provider, you’re far more likely to feel at ease when it comes to putting your full trust in their capabilities.
