These days, it’s more important than ever for small businesses and large companies to think about the health and safety of their employees and customers. Professional cleaning businesses have seen a sharp increase in demand as businesses realize the value of hiring cleaning pros to do the dirty work. But not all cleaning businesses offer the same solutions. Here’s what to ask before hiring a professional cleaner to ensure you partner with a trusted company.
What Services Do They Provide?
The one job most business owners know they don’t want to do is clean restrooms, so you’ll want to make sure that any professional cleaner you hire will clean and disinfect restrooms. We’re not talking about a simple wipe down of fixtures and a once over with a dirty mop. We’re talking about scrubbing, sanitizing, and disinfecting every surface from the floor and toilets to the sinks and mirrors.
In addition to restroom cleaning, does your business need other services? If you own a restaurant, ask whether the professional cleaner uses an electrostatic spraying service that disinfects surfaces but is also food safe.
If your business has a problem with smelly or clogged drains, find out if they provide a drain treatment service. Make a list of the specific needs of your business and find out whether the cleaning company is right for the job.
What Products Do They Use?
Effective cleaning products are necessary for proper deep cleaning. A professional cleaner should be using products that are approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). They should also follow health and safety guidelines for the use of all cleaning products.
You may be able to save money and time by purchasing soap, hand sanitizer, and paper products from your professional cleaning service. This will save you a trip to the store, and your business will never run out of toilet paper again!
Are Employees Experienced and Trained?
It takes a dedicated team, who take pride in their work, to stay on top of the cleaning needs of a business. Ask what kind of training that cleaning employees receive, so you’re confident they can address the needs of your business.
Do they go through a rigorous training program to become certified? Choosing a company with professionally trained technicians will help you tackle the needs your business has today and make sure you’re ready to handle future problems if they arise.
Who Provides the Equipment?
Will you need to stock a janitorial closet with cleaning tools and supplies? Some companies provide the labor, and you provide the cleaning products, rags, and other equipment. This can get costly if you need to purchase a professional floor cleaner or other expensive cleaning equipment. At Enviro-Master, our technicians arrive with their own tools and equipment, so they’re ready to protect your facility.
Do They Stand Behind Their Work?
Salespeople can make a lot of claims, but can they prove your business will be disinfected and protected? After all, a restroom may look and smell clean, but is it really?
Enviro-Master recently teamed up with Dr. Charles Gerba, a professor of microbiology and immunology, to put our products to the test. The study proved that our disinfecting and sanitizing services are up to 99 percent effective at reducing bacteria levels immediately and kept working for at least five days. Can your professional cleaner make the same claim?
How Much Will It Cost?
Every business is unique, so don’t be fooled by a salesperson who gives you a low quote over the phone. A trusted professional cleaner should come to your business, discuss your needs, and give you a fair price for service.
