Commercial cleaning services are especially useful during the summer months, when your facility might be busier than usual. It is the nature of many businesses such as car dealerships, retail establishments and restaurants to have a big bump in business during the warmer months when school is out and people are on vacation, and these businesses must be especially vigilant about cleanliness.
If you have never used a commercial cleaning service, giving one a try before committing might be a good idea. Previously, you may have tasked your own employees with the job of cleaning up, but they likely did it reluctantly and half-heartedly, if at all. You may have hired an independent cleaning person to do the job. This can work out well, if that person does a good job, and if he or she can get it done in a reasonable amount of time. This is where a trial run and a careful comparison can come in handy. A commercial cleaning crew employs professionals who can get the job done quickly and well. They bring their own equipment and supplies, which helps them work faster, since they are familiar with what they are using, and they get your facility cleaner.
When considering a commercial cleaning company, look at how many years they have been in business. It isn’t critical that they go back 20 years, but if it’s a newer company, ask about their experience level. Maybe they have been working for others for years and recently struck out on their own and are doing well. Also check references. You want to make sure the company you hire is honest and hardworking — and insured and bonded. Accidents can happen to anyone, and you want to make sure you don’t end up paying for them.
A benefit of retaining a cleaning company — besides you not having to worry about the cleaning yourself — is that they can handle tasks not everyone is suited for. For instance, most people are capable of dusting and vacuuming, but commercial office cleaning companies specialize in hard-to-care-for areas like windows, mirrors and flooring surfaces.
Clear as Glass
Although most people clean windows only periodically, it’s imperative they stay looking good in between cleanings. No one wants to patronize a business with filmy, dirty windows, and fingerprints should be wiped from doors and windows daily. The same goes for any mirrors and glass in the building — it’s an area you can’t get away with ignoring, unlike dust bunnies under the desks.
Depending on the type of flooring you have, you can seriously benefit from commercial floor cleaning services. You can vacuum, sweep and mop, but many commercial floors don’t come clean with ordinary products. And cleaning products can build up, necessitating stripping and rewaxing. Commercial cleaning companies have heavy-duty equipment such as buffers that most businesses don’t own themselves. This saves you not only on labor, but on equipment rental as well.
