Hiring an Office Cleaning Company

Whether you are a new business looking to contract cleaning staff, or you have an existing company and you don’t want to handle the day-to-day management of cleaning duties anymore, hiring an office cleaning company can seem an arduous task.  Fear not!  The keys to hiring a great office cleaning company are not so different than hiring quality contractors from any discipline.  A little research and review up front will help you hire an office cleaning company that serves you, your customers, and your staff effectively and efficiently.

It goes without saying that maintaining a clean office has many benefits for your business, your staff, and most importantly – your customers.  A clean working environment reduces illness, ensures efficient operations, and ultimately establishes the image of your business.  After all, nobody wants to do business with a company that appears disorganized and disheveled.  That being said, it is also important to know that not all offices require the same services, and not all cleaning companies offer the same quality cleaning.

With that in mind, you must first have a very clear understanding of what you need from your office cleaning company.  Professional cleaners offer a wide range of services including:

  • Vacuuming
  • Mopping
  • Carpet and upholstery cleaning
  • Dusting
  • Window cleaning
  • Bathroom and break room cleaning
  • Garbage and/or recycling removal
  • Hardwood floor maintenance and restoration
  • Power washing
  • Cleaning and maintenance of outdoor spaces (including parking lots/garages)

And this is just a few of the services many office cleaning companies provide.  So, before you start contacting cleaners, it is important to make a comprehensive list of the services you require so that you can get an accurate quote of cleaning services.  In addition, you should carefully consider the schedule of cleaning services you’ll need – a small office may need garbage removed on a weekly basis whereas larger offices may require daily service.  Each business’ cleaning needs are as unique as the products or services they provide.

Next, do your research on cleaning competitors.  You want to identify a few potential cleaners that can show an established record of successful cleaning service in your community.  Ask yourself, how long has this company been in business?  Can they provide references?  Do they have experience cleaning for businesses that are similar to my own?  And, what are the typical costs for their services?  Collect as much information as you can about different cleaners so that you can make the most informed choice possible.

Finally, always make sure that your potential cleaning contractor is fully insured.  They need to have adequate liability insurance and their employees also need to be properly insured in case of injury at work.  This is one aspect of hiring an office cleaning company that many business owners overlook, but you don’t want to be holding the bag if something goes seriously wrong with your cleaning company.
